Put that hair-dryer back right now
CHINESE travelling abroad can carry more than just clothes and cameras. They often carry expectations and odd habits — some of which get them into trouble.
Impatience, jumping the queue, poor table manners. These are just some Chinese tourists' habits that are giving China a bad name. And now the Chinese Government is starting to do something about it.
"China was closed 20 years ago. The world should give us some time to teach them about other countries," said Lu Yi, a manager in the outbound travel department at China International Travel Service.
In fact, the National Tourism Administration plans to publish an etiquette guide on proper manners for Chinese travelling abroad, China Daily reported last Saturday.
But while the government believes Chinese have a problem with their manners, other factors could also be to blame for the stereotype.
For instance, nearly two per cent of Chinese go abroad each year, according to 2005 statistics from the China National Tourism Administration. Most travel in low-price group tours of 15 to 40 people.
As a result, Chinese are more easily identified and judged as a group rather than as indivials.
Another reason for the stereotype of the ill-mannered Chinese tourist may be cultural bias.
Tang Yunpeng, 27, a Chinese who has been working in Singapore for five years, said that cultural expectations on both sides can proce a negative experience.
"We Chinese have kind of pride," he said. "But many foreigners have a strong prejudice against Chinese as well. The important thing is to understand and be understood."
Whatever the case may be, many believe the government's guide to good manners will have a positive effect.
Former New Zealand hotel restaurant manager Emma Moore, 34, says she never saw anything that "blew her mind". But she does admit that Chinese tourists did have a bad reputation at the Glacier Country Hotel in Fox Glacier, New Zealand.
They cooked rice in their rooms, left trash on the floor, smoked in the rooms and yelled for restaurant servers.
"You have to respect the culture of the places you're at," Moore said. "You can't live in a bubble."
Ivan Chuang, a US graate student from Taiwan, was impressed by the Chinese mainlanders he met on a recent tour. He paid US$350 for a whirlwind tour of New York City, Washington DC, Boston and Philadelphia last spring.
He still remembers the Chinese tour guide's opening speech: "When you find towels, hair dryers and alarm clocks in the hotel room, don't take them. If you want them, you have to buy them at a department store."
But Chuang, 30, said everyone behaved well: "I got a good impression of the people on my tour. That's not what I had heard about people from the Chinese mainland."

Here's how some international media look at Chinese tourists
"The most recent followers of the 'ugly Americans', who were seen in Europe in the '50s and '60s, and the free-spending Japanese tour groups, seen with their cameras everywhere in the '70s, are today's travellers from the Middle Kingdom. They are seen as a pushy, constantly smoking, hard shopping group. And, they may be difficult to adjust to."
USA Today, September 7, 2006
"In the same way that loud Americans attract glances from sophisticated people in Paris, Chinese tourists have gained a reputation in Southeast Asia. They are seen as loud, impolite with table manners, and leaving much to be desired. Even tour operators admit that Chinese customers can be rude and bossy when they hit the road."
The Christian Science Monitor,
January 4, 2006
"The Chinese were well-prepared. They were armed with paper cutouts of their relatives' feet. They headed straight for the shoes at the Clarks shop, among a collection of factory outlets near Oxford that was visited by a group of 2,000 Chinese sales representatives this month. They bought up to six pairs of shoes each and the queue stretched out of the door."
