Chinese officials are apparently fed up with stories of Chinese tourists going overseas and forgetting their manners.
The Guardian quotes China’s deputy premier blaming “'poor quality and breeding' of the average Chinese tourist. 'They make a racket in public places, carve words at scenic spots, cross the road when the light is red, spit, and do other uncivilised things. ... This is detrimental to the image of the country's people and leaves a bad impression.”
