How funny!!!

chinese tourists go to eu best shopping centre, open their big fat wallets buying top famous brands in eu such as LV, rolex...and what more? all these famous shops specially employed chinese speakers to just to serve the chinese tourists.
in contrast, western tourist in china go to chinese markets to bargain cheap cheap summer sandles, cheap shirts, cheap sun glasses and bargain real real hard at the chinese local markets that are set up especially for foreign travellers.
so, sinerca, what does it tell u of the direction we East and West heading to???
you should be very worried!!!!!!!

Chibese tourists keep your family employed.  Without chinese tourists most of the hotels in western countries will close down.  Leaving many locals unemployed wondering in the streets.

To embark on a journey of pleasure and tourism, the most important thing is to fully enjoy the places visited with no extra worries or special shopping lists . Treat yourself to local food , landscapes and tourist points of interest and buy some souvenirs to remember the adventure lived, that´s the normal and most suggested steps to follow.

But the OP revealed a very real and an important point of view to be considered.

Many Chinese travel for tourism but also go for unnecessary shopping . In my view they demonstrate their arrogance , immaturity and how ridiculous they can be.. I have seen how they  buy branded products carrying shopping bags , backpacks and not enjoying the place they visit. I was saying to myself why they are so stupid to travel so far to buy branded products, if China has all these stores of the same brand and the vast majority these brand products are made ​​in China . They are just stupid , just want to say when they are back in China they bought it in Europe and not in a store in Shanghai or Beijing , aren´t they stupid ? They also overpay excess baggage on the airline back home to bring unnecessary purchases .

In contrast , all or the vast majority of Western, North Americans , South Americans travelers embark their aventure without the worry of showing off or thinking what they can buy to impress their people when they are back home. While they traveling abroad for tourism, they carry just the essentials to enjoy the trip with no burden and purchase local products, souvenirs and some local clothing . That's it, simple and real .

Some Chinese must know how to travel and enjoy a good trip. People travel for pleasure and to experience unforgettable moments and not spending their travel in shopping malls making nonsense and unnecessary purchases to impress people.

Thanks DINGO for pointing out some other shortcomings of some Chinese travelers that needs to be improved.

Denial, according the psychoanalysts, is one of the most primary mechanisms of defense. It consists in the attitude of denying or minimizing obvious facts of reality with which the individual can´t  cope or whose irresponsibility is unable to meet.

And I agree.

People travel to experience things they cant at home.  Chinese go shopping at high-end markets an buy designer goods they know are real.  Westerns go to cheap markets an bargain for cheap goods.  They both do this because they cant do this type of thing in there home towns.  

So what does this tell you about the kinds of markets you can find in the western world compared to china?  An you think the western world is worried?

This is an example:

Chinese tourists in western countries ask, how much is this bag, $2000, ok, give me one please.

Western tourists are escorted to kisoks in Chinese local market for shopping.

They ask' how much is this mobile phone cover?'
sales girl says '20rmb'
Western tourist bargain, 'i give u 15rmb yeh? come on, 15rmb....ok ok...17rmb.......hmmmm...ok ok...
18rmb??....no?....please please...ok here....19rmb...19rmb ok?..Thank you!!!''


so in the end, they are given 1 or 2rmb discount and they very happy!  mind you, 1 rmb is only $0.20
poor bargar
