This week reached to Madrid only of a China factory 2500 tourists invited by the direction of your company to a trip to Spain.

By 2015 there were 68 million tourists in Spain but the first quarter of 2016 already is growing 16% this figure( Perhaps it Will be 78 million of tourists this year).

But the Chinese phenomenon is of an impressive magnitude.
This is put underscores the tremendous influence that China will have the world in next years.-

Was expected to finally would arrived to Spain in this year masses of american tourists today that is concentrated in London,Rome and specially in Paris .but the they have come as a surprise are the chinese tourists-

Yep, Chinese are absolutely overwhelming everywhere these days, for example, Japan.

It is quite a shock, as Chinese are not known for being respectful or polite.

Macau and Hong Kong (where I live) is absolutely overwhelmed by Mainland Chinese.

A lot of tension because of the cultural differences. I mean, Chinese raised in HK/Macau are significantly different, but the ones raised in Mainland China, have no sense of other at all.

Do a quick search for 'Mainland Chinese' and anything related to defecating in the streets. Hong Kong Netizens so sick of it, regularly capture it on the film, and try to post it online, as a way to shame Mainland Chinese into acting proper in public. That is just ONE of many many many issues.

There are a lot of places here in Macau that I simply do not like to go, because I know they are extremely popular with Mainland Chinese tourists. The decibel levels go way up, and the aggressiveness of pushing and shoving their way to do things gets irritating.

Not only that, but if you are a tourist yourself somewhere, they do a lot of crazy things, like the many new stories of graffiti in the Egyptian pyramids and just on and on. Just no sense at all of respecting anyone or anything.

To be fair, I think it's a lot worse in Macau than in HK. Mostly because tourists in Macau are confined to relatively small areas with narrow streets (and of course the casinos...).

Hong Kong - where I live at the moment - doesn't really have many sights per se. Most tourists come here for some serious shopping, but don't block any streets like Rua de Sao Paulo. Sure, you see some Mainlanders doing some weird/disgusting things from time to time, but overall it's not too bad.

For Vienna, yes, there is an increase in Chinese tourists. Groups of Chinese tourists are still more common than individuals. But frankly, it's certainly not as bad as in Macau or other Mainland cities.

It's quite silly to compare HK and Macau with any European city or country, Europe is far far away, and there's visa policy, the worst case scenario is like London where there are a **** load of Chinese tourists in the touristy area in summer; Hong Kong and Macau are just next door, and they can't even say no, the situation is of course 100 times worse over there.

Chinese tourism is increased in the national parks.
It used to be that almost no people would be at Zion or the Arches in the early season (April), now there are tour busses of Chinese people.

We don't have issues of Chinese tourists defacating on the streets here. Must be something to do with very far distances dictating airplane ticket prices keeps the working class end of the tourists out. Similarly in Spain where you have the worst working class British tourists invading Spain, but in the US you get more of the middle class ones. Be careful not to stereotype and apply it to everywhere. The ones who defacate on the street come from the rural peasant class, not the ones born and raised in the first and second tier, or even third tier, cities.

That's what happens when money hits peasants fast. They have money to spend but grew up with the countryside habits. Their government is starting to "train" them how to behave when traveling and fine whoever is caught breaking rules abroad, however I don't know how this is enforceable. I've met many tourists who come from the larger cities and they tend to be disgusted by their fellow countrymen's behavior. However, I must say the Chinese are not the only loud and rude ones. I come across many rude Europeans who walk on the wrong side in a shopping center and expect you to get out of their way.

Wait, there is a "wrong" side to walk in a shopping mall?
