Why do Chinese tourists have a bad reputation? ?

    What I've observed is that the acceptable social norm for public behavior in crowded areas of China is clearly very different than what it is where I live or visit. I see it in New York, Boston, London, Paris.

    I see purposeful blocking of sidewalks so they can hear a tour guide or take a photograph or have a group conference, so people have to walk in the street--where there's heavy traffic--to get past.

    I see an arrogant "ownership" of sidewalks by the men--not unique to Chinese men--in regard to women, children, and younger men, where they demand you get out of their way and they absolutely will not get out of yours.

    I hear voices far louder than necessary to be heard by those they're with.

    I must note that this is most certainly not all Chinese tourists, but the ones who behave like this make a more lasting impression than the others who do not.

    A lot of them travel together in groups.

    I travel a lot and what I've noticed is that when visiting touristy areas/cities a lot Chinese travelers normally are in very large groups. The norm is to push people aside to get by. Due to China being such a heavily populated country that is their societal norm so for them it isn't considered rude to do so in a huge crowd. I think they just have a bad reputation due to not being familiar with what is or isn't acceptable in a different country. I'm 5'1'' and I have been shoved and pushed out the way by people larger than me, it's very frustrating and rude but it is something I have come to expect in my travels. Another thing I have noticed to is when taking pictures many of the Chinese tourists do not seem to be aware of other tourists and will move in front of you while you take a picture or if you are waiting in line to take a picture of or by something, frequently I've had a group cut in front of me so they can have their picture. I honestly don't think they mean to be rude, its just a lack of awareness of other customs and norms and more often than not I experience this with tourists who are much older.

    Because they are weak in English. They are unable to describe properly.

    For this reason, Chinese tourists have a bad reputation.

    But they are good people.

    They talk out loud in Mandarin slating western people thinking nobody knows what they mean, someone always shouts back at them in their language, someone you'd think wouldn't know Mandarin.
