From CNBC, the “Chinese authorities have issued instructions on how to be a “civilized” tourist, with an illustrated list of dos and don’ts to ensure tourists don’t give the country a bad name.”
Adam Wu from the Telegraph adds that “off the menu, for Chinese tourists, are strong-arming locals into taking their photograph, urinating or spitting in public pools, drying hanker-chiefs on lampshades and using fingers to excavate foreign bodies from noses and mouths. Nasal hair should be kept properly trimmed at all times, the National Tourism Administration suggests, while stainless steel cutlery, pillows and airplane life jackets should not be treated as take-away gifts. “If a dangerous situation arises then someone else will be left without a lifejacket,” the guidebook warns. In Spain, women should always wear earrings, while in Japan they must avoid fiddling with their hair at all costs.”
The list goes on and on, check out more country specific instructions here.
