How well behaved are mainland Chinese tourists in your country?

Asian-American here.

Honestly, the mainland Chinese tourists here are generally really annoying! Bad manners, speak very loud, uncouth behavior. They can come off as peasants even though they may $loaded

Most tourist groups are loud anyway. Just go to Italy to observe the American groups.
Individuals are much more quiet.

However it is true that many Chinese do not consider it rude to talk loud. I hope they can realize it is an annoying habit.

Yes, its in human nature to be loud when in a group. I don't know why people feel the need bring up Americans, Chinese or anyone else for that matter.

It takes a certain level of discipline to be quiet in a public environment and a lot of people lack those skills regardless of where they are from.

Of course individuals would be quiet. Whom are they supposed to be loud with? Stray cats?

Here "individuals" can mean couples or groups of several people too.

It is not just about "being in groups"

There are "groups of Japanese" tourists that somehow do not come off as uncouth and off-putting as "Mainland Chinese tourists"

Generally Mainland Chinese have bad manners, they yell over each other, make weird spitting sounds, little consideration of others/ space...they will cut you off while walking and then un-apologetically dawdle into oblivion. Again, they often come off as peasants, even if they are $loaded. I think the younger generation is more considerate, however.

Japanese people are an extreme in the world. It does not make too much sense to use them as an example either.

Have you ever taken a bus on campus when many passengers know each other? I remember once the bus was sooo loud and the driver refused to move until people were quiet.

Do you refuse to admit that the Chinese tourist groups are at the opposite extreme from the Japanese when it comes to the things we're talking about?

I agree Chinese tourist groups are loud, but American groups in Europe are equally loud. I lived in Europe too.
I do not know much about groups from other countries. I believe Japanese groups are much more quiet.
