Hong Kong and the Chinese tourist !
Some Hong Kong seem to think that, in spite of becoming richer, mainland China has not shown sufficient improvement in their manners.
In this video posted on YouTube, a man identified as the mainland is considered yelling and screaming to a servant on a passenger ship.
In an article in the Washington Post last year, Andrew Higgins wrote in Indonesia that people considered the increasing presence of Chinese tourists as a mixed blessing, comparing the behavior of American visitors in 1960:
Mainland tourists can be "very difficult," requiring unbeatable rates and often complain about their housing.
And, he added, they tend to be "noisy", something that raises eyebrows on an island is dotted with Hindu temples. ...
Hartono, an ethnic Chinese and fluent in Mandarin, says he can not understand it loud and arrogant behavior of most Chinese visitors, the features that have made their modern day equivalent of the Asia impetuous, arrogant "Ugly Americans" of the 1960s who gained such notoriety in Europe and elsewhere. The number of Chinese tourists visiting the United States has increased in recent years, and the U.S. Department of Commerce indicates that between 2010 and 2016, this number is expected to grow by a whopping 232 percent.
