I love China and Chinese people, and it’s my chosen place of residence. No hate intended, see my other posts to confirm that I actually love this country. Here are however some of the less appreciated parts of Chinese tourists, I’m sorry that generalization is unavoidable. It’s a minority of rich people from the countryside that has many of these behaviors, simply explained by this being perfectly normal in their own hometown. Culture clash.
Chinese staying on the same hotel floor can be incredibly noisy. Room doors can stay open and the hallway become their “extended” room to be able to communicate better with their friends / family in the other rooms. Not really appreciated by other hotel guests.
Closing hotel doors. Not sure what it is, but Chinese do not have the habit of using the door handle to close doors. The door is ALWAYS slammed shut. Being woken up by slamming doors at hours when you want to sleep is no fun.
“It’s their job” mentality. Easily seen at McDonalds and KFC in China. Chinese do not throw away their own trays, but leave it at the table to be cleaned by the workers there. It’s the customs in China, so it works fine there, but to not transfer well to all countries. At Amsterdam Airport, I saw a janitor wiping Cola that someone had spilled at the gate where a group of Chinese tourists where sitting. Since he was cleaning the floor anyway, the group of Chinese thought it was fine to throw their trash on the floor next to the spilled Cola. He is going to clean that area anyway, right? Needless to say, the janitor became very angry.
Children peeing and defecating literally everywhere. It’s common to not use diapers in China, instead they just use “open” pants. You are lucky if they choose to at least let the child pee in the potted plant in the mall instead of just directly on the floor.
