China’s national tourism agency issued a set of guidelines for Chinese tourists whose behavior overseas has become a source of concern.
The marching orders consist of reminders not to litter, speak too loudly in public or commit acts of vandalism like the recent incident in Egypt where a “Ding Jinhao Was Here” suddenly appeared carved into a 3,000 year-old relic.
No less than a vice premier said publicly that “improving the civilized quality of the citizens” was a good way of improving China’s international image.
