Chinese tourists called on to be civilized at Sanya scenic spots
Recently, a photograph depicting a Chinese tourist’s graffiti on an Egyptian relic was shared by an embarrassed Chinese traveler on weibo. The picture sparked heated discussion on the behavior of Chinese tourists abroad. Sanya, a tourist city, is calling for the public to behave in a more civilized manner when visiting foreign tourist attractions.
Dadonghai, which is open to the public for free, attracts a large number of tourists every year. Unfortunately it is common that many of the attractions surroundings are damaged by visiting tourists, particularly the cactuses, which tourists often inscribe their name into.
In addition to the vandalism and graffiti in the Dadonghai area, Nanshan Cultural Tourism Zone and Tianyahaijiao have also been damaged by tourists.
Other tourists who witnessed the vandalism commented that it was disgusting behavior and blamed the damage on a lack of concern for public property and selfishness.
