Newsflash:

Not everybody likes tourists, for a variety of reasons.

bmihura: insano: I don't know what's worse, rude tourists or visitors with complete apathy and even disdain for their surroundings.
The Chinese people I know in America (all graduate students) have zero desire to have any sort of cultural experience while living here. My Chinese friend and his wife  haven't ventured outside a two-block radius of their apartment in three years of grad school. When they socialize, it's only with other Chinese people; when they eat, it's only at Chinese restaurants; when they shop, it's only at the Asian grocery store.They watch only Chinese tv online and when they do, it's Chinese spin-offs of European or American shows (see Voice of China). I did come out with us to see a movie once; it was Life of Pi and he saw it only because it had a Chinese director.

Chicks from Hong Kong are freaks in bed though, so they've got that going for them, which is nice.

/CSB over

Same here in Austin, TX. Asians cluster together. I don't have any problem with that though as they do not cause problems, have very good restaurants, and are more polite than your average person. Carry on!



Yea, its probably typical of 1st generation immigrants -- stick together when possible.  Its harmless enough and -- for those who stay -- will pass in successive generations.  In the mean time it means that some good restaurants will spring up to cater to their expat communities.

FTFA: Many in China say they are treated like second-class citizens when they travel abroad and local media is full of stories of Chinese tourists who have been robbed, our correspondent adds.

Isn't that cute? They see themselves as victims. They really are becoming just like us.

/of course I guess that makes sense
//it's our money and our jobs we're sending over there that are giving them their newfound wealth

To a Han Chinese, all other ethnicities are barbarians.  The education they receive in their homes and in schools only serves to reinforce this fact.  Chinese chicks are pretty cute, tho.

Earlier this year, officials in China's eastern province of Jiangsu warned citizens against carrying large amounts of money with them or flashing expensive jewellery.


This has nothing to do with them being Chinese. This has everything to do with them being tourists. This happens to tourists from every country no matter where they travel.

Wang Yang.  Hehehehe.
His name is Wang Yang.

I don't think the world can handle even a mere 10% of the Chinese travelling the world. Resources are strained enough as it is. There's just too farking many of them. They need to stay in their little cancerous wasteland that they've built.

Teehee.  Wang Yang.

Lsherm: RatOmeter: It's not about saliva, in my experience.  My mother-in-law will hawk-and-spit in the shower.  No, that should be hawk, hawk, hawk and spit.  It's about getting phlem out - sharing it with everyone else in the process.  It may vary per region, but my wife is from Beijing and that city has nasty air.

Oh, I took to wearing the air mask when I was in Beijing:

Air quality is piss poor everywhere in China.  One problem is that the spitting becomes a habit, and people will do it even if they don't have to.  The other problem is that spitting is more culturally accepted by the Chinese than it is in the rest of the world.


The first time I went to Beijing I was in a taxi and looked out over the city to what I thought was thick fog.

It wasn't fog.

Stayed in a Sofitel which was extremely nice but I thought it was telling that in amongst the usual hotel items in the wardrobe (bathrobe, safe, etc) was a full on gas mask in a canister. I guess it could have been used in case of fire, but looking out the window at the "fog", I would not be surprised if it was just there to allow you to breathe outside.

Really interesting country tho. Sure there are good and bad aspects, but that's the way with every country really.

Spawn73:   However, recently there was a story in a Danish newspapers about a busfull of Danes, that for some reason where in China, who had their bus stop on the highway, in dense traffic, and urinated. All of them at once, they drunk of course.

This caused a scandal in China, and I wondered why. Was it because you're supposed your pants discreetly? I can see how perhaps the scene was somewhat frightening to the Chinese, with 30+ drunk Danes whipping their penis, but still...


Really?  You wonder why?  It was in the middle of a busy freeway system with several foreigners not giving a damn about pissing in public in front of everyone.  Its not their country, so I dunno - sort of a f--k you gesture, if you ask me.

I doubt such a gesture would go over to well on a US highway either.

Tip #1457: Going to a Petsmart and asking the workers there that you'll "have a little of this, and a little of that one over there" is not a good idea.
