Germany famous for Beer sausages and Soccer in China !

Germany famous for Beer sausages and Soccer in China !

Most Chinese tourists only know Germany for its "beer", "sausages" and "soccer". German tourism bureaus and operators want to expand that knowledge

With the German economy that has made a successful push into China, Germany travel industry has intensified a campaign to attract Chinese tourists to the largest economy in Europe. Christian Ebner said that Chinese tourists seek in Germany.
They spend their newly acquired free money and are already the third largest group of foreign tourists - Chinese business travelers and tourists packet become a lucrative source of revenue for the German tourism industry in trouble .


Black Forest No trip is complete without a cuckoo clock factory tour Drubba More than 600,000 bookings from China are expected this year , according to the German Centre for Tourism DZT .
And a further easing of travel restrictions is expected to accelerate growth in the coming years .
"Chinese tourists come to Germany to go shopping , and they especially love the clothes," says the Dusseldorf -based Global Refund Corporation , which manages accounts free of duty and VAT for many traders . On average, a Chinese tourist spends more than 200 euros for clothes at a package from Germany , said Global Refund . That totals about € 42 million per year, with a third of that amount spent mainly in Frankfurt, which is the hub for air transport Europe. Cologne and Munich are also tourist destinations for Chinese travelers .


the Language

Language is a major obstacle in Germany. While most major hotels and businesses in the major tourist centers in Germany can manage some English , French , Italian or otherwise, hardly anyone speaks Mandarin . "Therefore, the Chinese traveler often feels he or she does not receive the same quality of service that others are doing ," says Stefanie Lyngbye travel agents based in Hamburg Caissa
" And then they have money to spend, they are very particular about where they spend it ," she adds . " They buy their watches in Switzerland and they buy their fragrance in Paris. They will not buy a French perfume in Germany or Italy. " While traveling to other countries plan tend to focus on the sights , Chinese tourist itineraries also include shopping excursions . No trip to the Black Forest is complete with a tour of the factory cuckoo Drubba on Lake Titisee or leaving the factory in Metzingen Hugo Boss .
But there is no compartmentalization when it comes to holidays for Chinese tourists . Unlike Japanese tourists , the Chinese are not interested in visiting Meissner porcelain factory . After all , the Chinese porcelain when Europeans were living in mud huts . That's why they call it " China " , after all.

The campaign

The campaign conducted by the Travel Industry of Germany to attract Chinese tourists to the largest economy in Europe after a major campaign by German companies in China's economy booming with business German , including automakers Mercedes and Volkswagen with chemicals giant BASF seeking to carve out new markets in China . Brand names are important for Chinese tourists , more important than the price tag , the industry sources noted . But this is not the case when it comes to booking a trip to Europe , said this person.
"There is a fierce price war happening in China when it comes to book excursions ," 
she said. 
"Tour groups harass hotels, restaurants and bus operators and aircraft for the best possible deal with the most for their hard earned money. 
" Great expectations are articulated on the lifting of travel restrictions in the coming weeks . Starting in September , most Chinese travelers will need a visa to come to Europe.
"This means that the tourism industry in Germany, with other European countries, is shifting its focus to China ," says Horst Lommatzsch German Centre for tourism.

The New most Uggly Tourists are ... Chinese

The bad Americans terrorized Europeans and Asians with their strong voices and tennis shoes in the years following the Second World War.

Decades later , the Japanese tour groups descended from their air-conditioned flashing peace signs bus as they shot pictures of each landmark known as the laundry on a clothesline in the back. Now it 's time for China to face the weight of complaints.

The complaints are familiar - they gape , they jostle , they avoid the local cuisine , and last year, 83 million Chinese mainland spent $ 102 billion abroad - Americans and Germans overruns - which makes biggest spenders of tourism in the world , according to the World tourism Organization.

Chinese tourists will be 400millions in 2015

Their numbers have their place among the most resentment tourists. Tourists from mainland China, often loaded with money and do not know the foreign means , tumble bus tour with apparently little appetite for breakfast buffet in the hotel and no concept of lining up .
Frustrations with the new tourists were summarized in a Thai online bulletin board last spring , when users posted complaints about Chinese tourists using external voice inside and spitting in public , among other transgressions.
Last year , Thierry Gillier , a French fashion designer who founded the label Zadig et Voltaire , caused a minor scandal when he told daily use women that Chinese tourists would not be welcome at his new boutique hotel Paris . A barrage of international criticism persuaded him to apologize.
Like their predecessors, the Chinese nouveaux riches and helpless with foreign languages ​​, complicated by the historical isolation of their developing country combination .
" What China is a lawless society poorly educated with lots of money will take its toll on the world ," said Hung Huang , publisher of the popular magazine and blogger in Beijing.
Despite these missteps , countries are practically tripping over themselves to attract Chinese tourists. Wedding companies in South Korea seeking to attract Chinese couples with bling- heavy ceremonies inspired by the viral video " Gangnam style .
" A coastal county near Sydney , Australia, is the construction of a Chinese theme park $ 450 million focused on a life-size replica of the gates of the Forbidden City and a Buddhist temple of nine floors. France , one of the most popular destinations for Chinese tourists already - 1.4 million visitors in 2012 - working to further strengthen its appeal.
Paris officials have recently published a manual for the services sector that offers Mandarin sentences transcribed and cultural tips to better understand the Chinese desires, including this tidbit : "They are very picky about food and wine . "

Guidelines for them

To judge the grunts in the world , these guidelines may be necessary. But the biggest shame seems to come from Chinese colleagues . In May, a mainland Chinese tourist in Luxor, Egypt , discovered a fellow had his own hieroglyphs carved on the wall of a temple 3,500 years . " Ding Jinhao was here ," he said. A photo of the offending scrawl quickly spread on Chinese social media, and outraged citizens tracked down the 15-year -old vandalism. The tumult subsided after his parents issued a public apology.
Embarrassed by the wave of bad press this month , Wang Yang, vice- premier of China , publicly protested against the "quality and livestock " poor Chinese tourists who tarnish the reputation of their homeland. "They make noises in public, zero graffiti on attractions , ignore red lights to cross the road and spits everywhere," he said , according to People's Daily .
Despite his warning , articles with titles like "Chinese bride fights in French Lavender field " continue to appear in the state media .
Ms. Wang, blogger accuses tumultuous rule of the Communist Party uncivilized behavior of China abroad. " There's a whole generation that was taught that you do not pay attention to the toilet or morals because it is considered bourgeois ," she said. While the Chinese are more open to Western ideas now , it does not necessarily cast when really interact with the outside world. "They think , " To hell with the label. As long as I have money , foreign worship my money . "
Most vacationers from mainland China have a great time abroad . In May , Huang Honglin , 53, and his wife paid $ 8000 for a tour of the United States, a country his last visit on a business trip 25 years ago a group of 16 days. This was long before he joined the growing middle class in China as the owner of a trading company

What Chinese think

This time, Mr. Huang had money to burn.
"We went shopping for gemstones in Hawaii and bought Prada bags to New York, " he recalls . Mr. Huang has never reached the chic boutiques of Manhattan. Instead , he traveled an hour north of the Woodbury Common Premium Outlets, where many designer stores have recently hired employees who speak Chinese .
His only complaint was that they had to run through the gates before leaving the bus. " There was a short time, it was like war," he said .
According to a report by McKinsey & Company, nearly 70 percent of Chinese luxury consumers buy their balls Tiffany and Hermes scarves abroad to avoid further sales tax on these products at home , which can reach 60 percent . Take Louis Vuitton handbag black " Neverfull " a symbol of status with heavy straps that cost 14,400 RMB in China, or $ 2,335 - more than $ 350 more than the same item within the United States.
In 2007 , China granted the United States " approved destination status ", which opened the doors for Chinese group leisure travel in America from 2008. Last year , 1.5 million Chinese came American shores , to almost 8.8 billion, according to the Commerce Department . Today, nearly 150 travel agencies in the United States have the approval of the National Tour Association , a trade group American, organize trips from China , many of them owned and operated by Chinese Americans.
But the industry has seen a growth crisis . Despite years of meetings in China and decades of towers coaches across the United States, the travel agency AmericanTours International has learned that Chinese tourists have a special touch. On the one hand , people in Beijing and Shanghai can not travel on the same bus.

 Chinese Tourist in USA

"They battled ," recalled a director of business development
Last year, 1500 Chinese "Hollywood to Broadway" bus tour of the company, a 20-day trip cross country for continental with stops that included a Las Vegas casino , bridges County Madison , Iowa, Niagara Falls, the White House and the Empire State Building.

If sites are crowd-pleasers , the nights can sometimes be difficult. " Smoking in hotel rooms is always a problem," said Hentschel, a habit that can cost hundreds of dollars in tourist cleaning bills from the hotel. Then there was the episode last summer, he said, when a group of tourists has caused a scene in a hotel in Cody , Wyoming, after thinking wrongly another busload of fellow had been given preference to breakfast. The police were called to escort them out of town , he said .
Most often , Chinese tourists become victims of unscrupulous tour operators. During a one-week visit to Thailand in 2009 , Qi Lingfeng , 27, was one of several people in his group who refused to register for expensive trips like trips and speedboat concerts. As punishment, he said, the local guide lockouts their hotel rooms. Other guests in the same hotel , he said, were forced to leave their bus for the same transgression.
"It was so crazy , we even thought of calling the Chinese Embassy in Bangkok, " he said.
During a group tour of the Siberian city of Vladivostok in January, Chen Xu , 47, a scientist from the coastal city of Xiamen , said "Russian ethnic dance " tour , which cost $ 80, is proved to be a woman in a bikini twirling around a stripper pole .

What parents say ? 

" When the parents saw what was happening , they took their children and left the room , " he said.
Surrounded by many foreign stimuli , many of which aspire to a taste of home and abroad . Nuoyan Xie , 20 , a student at Peking University , said as much during a recent visit to New York. If she enjoys drinking tap water , she said Chinatown was a disappointment.
"I'm really disappointed that this is not like in the movies , where there are lots of lanterns and performances everywhere, " she said.

On the upside, to find an abundance of Chinese food after several days of consuming only western strange concoctions redeemed the neighborhood

Sweden and Switzerland launch joint campaign to help Chinese tourists tell them apart

Sweden and Switzerland have launched a joint campaign to help Chinese tourists say the two countries share .
While confusion is not just a problem for the Chinese, he became a particular problem for those in the Asian nation because the names of the two countries are written the same in Mandarin - Ruidian (Sweden) and Ruishi (Switzerland ) - and start with the same symbol.
In order to dispel confusion, Swedish and Swiss consulates in Shanghai launched a competition on the Swedish consulate website that asks the Chinese to come up with funny ways to help people keep the two separate countries

The two European countries - known for its chocolate , cheese and watches, one for Ikea , Volvo and Seventies pop group Abba - have often been confused for each other among the Chinese .
The problem stems largely from the fact that the names of the two nations are written the same in Mandarin - Ruidian (Sweden) and Ruishi (Switzerland) - starting with the same symbol , as the Consul General of Sweden Victoria Li in China.
In an effort to end the confusion, the Swedish and Swiss consulates in Shanghai launched a competition on the Swedish consulate website , asking the Chinese to come up with funny ways to help differentiate the two countries. Bids may be accepted as a blog , cartoon , photo, short or in another format.
The winner of the best presentation will receive a 12-day trip in Sweden and Switzerland, and is scheduled to report on their impressions of the two countries to the rest of the trip , the website states . Entries will be accepted until November 20.
The organizers have also designed a logo depicting a humorous campaign mounting objects and people associated with Sweden and Switzerland on separate maps of each country.
Map of Sweden with meatballs , a Viking, Pippi Longstocking in the books of Astrid Lindgren, and two cartoon characters male with a heart between them symbolizing gay marriage, which remains illegal in Switzerland. Map of Switzerland has cheese fondue , the Alps and a picture of Roger Federer. China can not be the only country struggling to say Sweden and Switzerland outside . Residents of Spanish-speaking countries are also victims of the confusion that Sweden is spelled " Suecia " in Spanish while Switzerland is called " Suiza .
Sweden and Switzerland are not the only destinations that have caused confusion among travelers. Last month , a British holidaymaker hoped to discover the architecture of the Alhambra Palace in Granada, Spain, but wrongly flew across the Atlantic to the tropical Caribbean island of Grenada after an error reservation confusion. Earlier this summer , two American tourists were taken to the wrong continent after an airline has confused two airport codes .
The misunderstanding between Sweden and Switzerland is not the only incident that Chinese tourists were recently in the light. Last month, the Communist Party leaders of Tourism has published a "Guide to Tourism civilized " urging for the first time Chinese travelers to reduce bad behavior , including public displays of nose -picking , swimming pool - dirt and discussion of pork in order to improve the country's image abroad. China was the biggest spender on international tourism last year, surpassing Italy, Japan, France and Great Britain, and is the source of market fastest growing tourism in the world, according to the latest figures from the World tourism Organization earlier this year .

In a move that should have upscale rubbing their hands with glee British companies , George Osborne unveiled a new visa system to make it easier for tourists and wealthy Chinese businessmen to visit the UK. Motivated in part by a study that showed Chinese tourists bought considerably more handbags designers in Paris and London , Osborne said: "I do not want us to try to resist your economic progress , I want Britain to share in ". In other words : " Hey Big Spender, spend a little time with me. "

Chinese tourists are one of the most dynamic of visitors to UK

But while Chinese tourists are one of the most dynamic of visitors to UK groups - a record 179,000 in 2012 , spending a total of £ 300 million - there is a well-trodden path that most visits down . In this case , it is especially indicated by the stores.

Blue Badge Guide Nai -Lin Yeh organized tours for Chinese visitors to the United Kingdom for over 15 years. Despite its efforts to encourage visits to go further , one of the most popular places requested by visitors is Bicester Village, an evacuation center for designer labels and luxury Oxfordshire. " In China, branded products are very expensive and they are worried about fakes ," he said. "When they go shopping , they want to spend much . I think they want the material things more than the spiritual. " Tour the historic sites of London such as the Tower of London seems to be less of a draw. Photo: Jack Sullivan / Alamy / Alamy
A visit to Bicester is usually preceded by a walk around the colleges near Oxford. Similarly, a visit to Stonehenge can integrate Clarks Village , Somerset , a factory outlet that Chinese tourists arrive by the busload to obtain a pair of shoes to a quintessential British fraction of the price at home. The fact that most Clarks shoes are actually made in China does not seem to be a deterrent . say Beijing apartement

"It's the same with Westminster Abbey . they want to avoid spending entrance, but they spend a lot of money buying . I took a group of eight to Harrods last week and spent £ 70,000 in two hours. the one of them almost bought a watch for £ 290,000 . "
Carey Fletcher , chairman of the China Britain Travel Group , said that returning visitors are more likely to visit sites outside the capital. " Now groups are in the Lake District , which previously they did not go at all. Brighton and Portsmouth are also becoming popular. "

2 chinese tourists try to pay their bill with Coins of 1 euro ! 

Two Chinese tourists were briefly detained in France on suspicion of forgery after trying to settle their hotel bill with coins of one euro. Police were called after a hotel owner in Paris became suspicious about two men and 3,700 pieces of one euro were then found in their room.

no counterfeit

But the monay were not counterfeit . The men said they had got the money dealers scrapyard in China, which are often forgotten in euro cars sent from Europe. The owner of the hotel in Bagnolet, in the east of Paris , called the police after the two tourists had again tried to pay the 70 euros (59 € ) of the hotel bill for the second night - all as they did yesterday .
"Investigators suspected they were dealing with a case of counterfeit money, " a source was quoted as saying by Le Parisien newspaper of France . But banking experts have verified the coins and confirmed that they were not wrong. It was later established that the two men - who were not identified - have friends in the scrap metal trade in China and purchased parts from them.

100millions Chinese tourists travel abroad !

100millions Chinese tourists travel abroad !

All destinations for tourism have eyes Chimene for Chinese outbound market. In a highly competitive international context, France is rather well placed. France demonstrated during one of his last technical events organized before the summer break In partnership with the firm Roland Berger, Trump France conducted a major study focused on affluent Chinese upper middle class / (Chinese Upper-Middle Class), a now estimated at 9.6 million households or 30.3 million segment people. view top photo

The study highlights a home CUMC must have an annual household income between 24 000 and 48 000 and a budget of 5 300-8 300 euros to provide a "standard" trip to Europe (4-6 or country for duration of 10 to 12 days).

As for the "additional costs", estimated at 30% to 50% of total travel expenses, they are among the most important source markets.


85% of respondents said they intend to make at least one trip abroad in the next two years. This represents a potential 26 million passengers which will be added the new Chinese rich are not taken into account in this study. Beyond its economic prosperity and financial capacity available to its nationals to travel to Europe, China feeds its tourism growth of urbanization (proximity to an airport), the increase in the level of education, youth of its population, the appreciation of the yuan, a strong propensity to save ...
According to the WTO, 100 million Chinese citizens should travel around the world by 2020. Already, one of 17 international tourist is a Chinese national.

Chinese Tourists already shocked international community with  that

High competition in Europe !

In this highly competitive (137 countries designated in 2009 as authorized by the Chinese government tourist destinations) and ahead of the United States and Australia market, Europe remains the favorite destination for Chinese tourists. In 2010, there were 2.3 million to visit. Each tour to Europe includes France (source www.franceguide.com/. It is the main travel destination for 30% of Chinese tourists. At his side, four countries stand out: Italy, Germany, the United Kingdom and Switzerland. According to estimates, 1.8 million Chinese tourists are expected to visit France in the 2013/2014 season.

A much more complex and complicated promising market, when we know that it is very sensitive to seasonal phenomenon.
The Chinese have in effect two major annual leave during which CUMC prefer to travel: New Year (January-February) and the "Golden Week" CUMC travel preferences evolve. The era of large groups who visited 5-6 countries in 15 days tends to disappear in favor of travel in small groups. The number of European countries visited were also reduced. In 2010 Chinese tourists visited 2-3 countries (France, Italy and Switzerland preferred) in 10 days.
By 2015, they will visit one or two countries in 6 days, France and Switzerland topping preferences.
This trend towards more individual trips should continue.

 new tourists wawe

"These new tourists are increasingly seeking formulas to measure. Beyond the beautiful landscapes and famous landmarks, the themes are going to grow as the castles, the wine, wedding ceremonies, golf, gambling is illegal in China, skiing, shopping oriented luxury brands, incentives ...

Shopping and luxury brands! 

This client focuses much more customization of travel at the price. The good price / quality ratio is not a priority, "said , Director of Maison de la France in China. Kettle in every room The survey of a sample of 400 Chinese CUMC (including 10 to 15% who have already made a trip to France) stressed the importance of the journey on board entertainment. He arrived in third position behind recreational activities (shopping, cinema ...) and time spent at home (reading, TV, surf the net ...).
France is a destination that meets the dream holiday of Chinese tourists. It is romantic, cultural and, moreover, it will bring the luxury "witness" who will win social prestige (4 of the top 10 most requested by Chinese brands are French him Vuiton, Cartier, Chanel and Dior ).

He will exhibit his return the sample photo that will matter as much as the tour itself. But the transition from dream to reality reserve him some cactus. Procedures for arrival and departure, the difficulties in obtaining a visa, the language barrier and limited services in Chinese, are some of the French weaknesses.
It also expects a warm hotel services, rooms of larger hotels, media and TV channels in China, kettles in the rooms because it can not live without hot water, hot buffets for breakfast, mastery of English by the hotel and restaurant staff, more flexible department stores for shopping hours, which is one of five key activities of the Chinese in France.

The fact remains that 86% of respondents who have already made a trip to France said they wanted to go back and argued a strong propensity to recommend.
The Chinese travel agency, almost obligatory passage CUMC tourists are mainly sensitive to channel promotions and information are the Internet and social networks.

Problems of VISA again and again

They would not book through their services, but the difficulties in obtaining visas lead them to appeal to the Chinese tourism professionals for export. In view of the United States and Australia, the process for obtaining a Schengen visa would be one that requires the most documents. It is also the longest.
"If the process of obtaining visas was simplified and streamlined in the French representations in China, embassies and consulates, the Chinese outbound tourism to France could grow by 30%," director of Atout France.
For their part, the Chinese tourism professionals are worried about the lack of uniformity of visa procedures from within the Schengen area, France is considered the most severe country, far ahead of Italy, Germany and Switzerland.
When choosing a travel agency with the Chinese consumer is based on credibility, trust, transparency, the "value for money" is coming in the fourth position. Chinese tour operators which combine the two activities (production and distribution) have developed greatly in 20 years. They were only 7 in 1990, they were 1246 in 2010. The most important are state companies.

Current regulations limit the ability of foreign competition!

Guide for uncivilized Chinese tourists

Guide for uncivilized Chinese tourists

Communist Party of China tourism chiefs have told people to go abroad they need to reduce the handshakes soft , public displays of nose-picking , dirty pool and discussion of pork, in a desperate attempt to improve the country's image abroad explain tracy Sun, a tourist guide. .
Severe edicts but ultimately unenforceable appeared in a 64-page guide to the civilized tourism, which was released Tuesday to coincide with the start of a week of holiday commemorating the communist takeover in 1949 .
Economic boom in China has led to an international scramble to attract an increasing number of cash - flush tourists . The World Tourism Organization said 83 million Chinese tourists spent nearly 63 billion pounds (105.6 billion Canadian dollars. ) Abroad in 2012.

Chinese behavior

But the bad behavior of many travelers for the first time has created a problem of global image, the party leaders fear . In May , Beijing approved a law aimed at improving the " national image " of the country and Wang Yang, a top executive , warned that tourists vulgar and impetuous had " damaged the image of the Chinese people and caused a vicious impact " on the country's reputation .
The manual of the label - which is punctuated by animated and non-Chinese tourists naughty drawings apparently - is the most complete and surreal moment in a series of recent diktats to improve the "quality" of Beijing tourists exports to world.

The guidelines

The guidelines are common sense - "Do not curse the people " - to the bizarre - " . Do not leave marks on the toilet seat "" [ When in ] Scotland , do not buy stones as souvenirs "or
On the menu for Chinese tourists , are local high armament taking their picture , urinate or spit in public pools, tissue drying on lampshades and using fingers to dig foreign body nose and mouth. Nasal hair should be properly dressed at all times , the National Tourism Administration , while cutlery, pillows and life jackets on board should not be treated as gifts to take home.
The book also offers specific advice for each country. In Spain , women should always wear earrings, while in Japan , they must avoid playing with their hair at all costs. Neither sex should click finger Germans ( "click finger for dogs " ), while in France , chrysanthemums and yellow flowers should never be given to those who invite you to their home .
It is unacceptable say this twitter account with the words " Ding Jinhao was here " written on a Chinese tourist. Advice is given on the visit of Islamic countries - " Do not talk about pork " Thailand - " Do not talk about the royal family. Do not run things with your toe " Algeria -" When you shake hands with others, it should be firm " , India -" Do not touch the head of other people, " and Iran - " You should not comment on the baby 's eyes . "
Hungarians, the guide points out, do not like you break their mirrors while the British find questions about their travel plans or stomach totally irrelevant .


"When you greet others [ in the UK ] , do not say :" Where are you going ? " Or," Have you eaten ? " As you do at home, " the guide instructs . " It is considered rude. "
Even speaking their own language , Chinese tourists must be careful , the manual stresses . "More and more foreigners can speak Chinese . Do not comment , belittle or even curse people when strangers are present. "
The new guidelines emphasize a growing consensus in China that even if all the tourists may be sent to finishing school , something must be done to stem a recent series of scandals involving overseas Chinese .
In a highly publicized case of a Chinese teenager was criticized by his countrymen after being caught entering the words " Ding Jinhao was here " on a temple 3,500 years in Egypt.

Small retailers only for Chinese tourists , however, will be seriously affected .
Jung Seon- hwa , a spokesman for Lotte Department Store, was not worried about the ban.

Chinese tourists and Shopping !

British Airways critics about Chinese Tourism VISA policy in UK

British Airways critics about Chinese Tourism VISA policy in UK 

British Airways supremo Willie Walsh, today attacked the government 's lack of corporate leadership as he warned the UK was losing its policy of " welcoming " the Chinese tourism.

The CEO of AIG , the owner of British Airways and Iberia, said the Prime Minister and the Chancellor

" have not demonstrated visionary leadership. They respond to everything that is relevant, rather than to implement a key strategy for businesses. " 

Walsh added: " Cameron and Osborne ... do not have a vision for the future. " Speaking on board the inaugural flight BA in Chengdu, the fifth largest city in China, the head of the aviation distinguished slow response of UK growth in emerging markets as evidence of the failure of the government policy.
"In China , the issue of visas UK remains a major problem," he said . " Not being in the [Visa Europe shared regime] Schengen means higher costs and bureaucracy for Chinese visitors. "

Traffic at Chengdu airport increased by 5.5 million passengers in 2000 to 32 million last year , and Walsh said Government policies hamper the chances of the United Kingdom to capitalize on this growth.

" We launched this route London to Chengdu a year ago , without obstacles visa ," he said . "There is a perception in China that the United Kingdom does not want tourists and Chinese companies. The government talks much about doing business with China, but it is one thing to say and another to put it into action . " 

 Too complicated to apply for UK VISA

Boss BA claimed Chinese tour " around the UK on the European circuits due to bureaucracy They say it is too complicated to apply for two visas Other countries are also more welcoming : . We need more Mandarin speakers , not just in airports, but the main attractions . "
About 1.2 million Chinese tourists visited the European countries that use the Schengen visa last year , compared to less than 200,000 flying UK. source

written by Tracy 

Before the publication of the interim report of the Commission on airport expansion Davies in South East later this year , Walsh said: "I expect [ Sir Howard Davies ] to produce a fantastic report , the best on the aviation in the UK has ever seen . " But nothing will happen with it, because it will be given to politicians who do nothing . "

Uncivilized Chinese Tourist

Uncivilized Chinese Tourist 

"It undermines the image of the people of our country and made ​​a bad impression." Chinese tourists are rude. According to Le Monde, Beijing has aired commercials in a program of prevention of state television to encourage travelers to behave correctly. The idea of a new law has also been issued to punish tourists who do not respect the local customs and traditions.
Graffiti, spitting and throwing garbage, rudeness tourists are hardly appreciated in the world. And they cause many reactions on social networks, but also discontent leaders. Recently, a young Chinese carved his name on a bas-relief of the god Amun in an Egyptian temple, creating a scandal. A manhunt was then started to find the culprit.
The Chinese authorities are exasperated. According to the magazine Vice, Wang Yang, a top executive was quoted as saying that his countrymen "make a noise in public spaces, engrave words on sights, cross the street when the light is red, spit and other things uncivilized ". He concluded: "It undermines the image of the people of our country and made ​​a bad impression."
France is even the subject of myths about Chinese tourists. In the capital, a sign written in Mandarin encourage visitors not to defecate on the floor around the palace of the Louvre.
This new law is therefore to warn tourists. The Global Times, a Chinese newspaper, wanted to respond by saying that blaming race or nationality was as uncivilized.
