Chinese tourists shouldn’t pick their nose or urinate in public? says the Chinese government.
Tourism laws are being enforced to the people of China traveling abroad and also the people residing on the mainland. China’s National Tourism Administration publicized a 64-page guidebook on their website that advises Chinese nationals not to pick their noses in public, urinate in pools or steal airplane life jackets according to CNBC’s report of AFP news agency last Wednesday.
To add onto their behavior, they have asked Chinese nationals to comply with non-smoking areas and not to throw trash in public areas. Furthermore, they are asked to keep their voices at a lower tone so that they aren’t yelling in public. The Chinese government gave warning against the annoying habit of forcing locals to take their photos.
There are other advices that are written that are country-specific. It gives advices that are customized to each country’s culture. For example, Chinese visitors in Germany should only snap their fingers to beckon dogs and this action should not be done towards humans. While touring Japan, the Chinese government advises Chinese nationals that they should avoid fidgeting their hair or clothes while they are at a restaurant. Country-specific guidelines, such as the ones mentioned, can be found in the guidebook they have officially publicized.
As more and more people of China travel abroad for their holiday, the guide is structured in a way to instruct the people how they should behave in their own country as well as abroad.
