In order to improve the image of the Chinese tourists who travel overseas, the National Tourism Administration requested that the tour guides and travel agencies take full responsibility for the Chinese tourists’ uncivilized manners and behavior. The administration is also considering including a requirement regarding civil behavior in the contract. The request came after the news media reported on a number instances in which Chinese tourists’ manners and behavior were uncivilized. The top five annoying mannerisms of Chinese tourists are: talking loudly in public, littering, spitting, not following orders, and damaging culture relics.
