China has earned a yet another bad reputation after their people made their mark in the world - and not in a good way. Rude Chinese tourists have recently been reported to ruin some of the world's greatest tourist attractions, something that has angered people around the world.
Xinhua News Agency reports that Xinwen Lianbo, a flagship news program on the state-run China Central Television (CCTV), aired videos that teach Chinese tourists to be more polite. The videos were aired for five consecutive days since last Wednesday.
Xinwen Lianbo usually covers political news and major events, but it shows how concerned the Chinese company is about the reputation of its tourists abroad.
