Documentary about Chinese Tourists | Three years ago, 98 million Mainland China tourists went overseas – predominantly to Europe. In 2017, more than 100 million mainland Chinese had travelled abroad. That was a new a record for China, according to CNTA – the China National Tourism Administration. And numbers are rising each year. These visitors appear to have the means, but not the manners. For years the clash of cultures has been well documented on social media, especially when it comes to Chinese tourists abroad. But Social Media is not able to show the whole picture.
The following 25-min documentary about Chinese tourists in France is not making fun of them, but pointing out some really interesting facts. No need to blame Chinese tourists for anything. You easily find German tourists with limited brain capacities when traveling to Mallorca, narrow minded Australians on Bali, misbehaving US-Americans in Manila and vandalizing event tourists from England or Russia at any Football World Cup.
No doubt, a surge in numbers of Chinese travelers is challenging even beyond the overcoming of racial prejudice. But empiric data shows: most travelers are awful. It’s a global plague. No need for being racist.
