It’s fair enough that visitors pay a little more, as long as the charge is reasonable and not way ...
No it's NOT fair enough. All visitors, whatever their nationalities, should pay exactly the same amount. Especially considering touristic prices are already jacked up (15RMB for a pancake, seriously ?).
I'm French, imagine for a moment what would be the reactions if in Galeries Lafayette we had a price for locals and a price for foreigners. Would you still find it fair enough ?
As someone said already upstairs, tourist spots are not only a good palce to learn something about the local cultures (not always) but also to get ripped off!
I can't understand why the tourists at the Great Wall complain for the price asked if it is marked clearly. I have just landed in Fuzhou coming from Wuhan and while we waited for boarding we've decided to take a rest in one of the Tian He's terminal coffee shops. We've been charged 135 Rmb for 2 Melon juices and one Latte. We saw the prices previously but since we had to wait for 1 hour we still decided to pay!
People pay for what they want.....that's for sure!

In China, most of the customers speak and read in Chinese.
To provide for foreigners, the menu has to be in a foreign language, usually in English.
You think an English translator comes cheap in China, you dummy?
Nobody is forcing the foreigners to buy from the two-pricing stalls.
China runs a free market economy darling, you don't like then get lost.
