    Anyone who can afford to emigrate out of China, will (eventually).

    26 years ago they weren't so crowded.
    It has changed a lot in that time.

    make sure you go to china tourist spots during a local non- holiday period! preferably when all the locals are working!

    otherwise all you see is a sea of people!

    China is in my bucket list, I would definitely want to see the Great Wall of China, Forbidden City and the Terracotta Army.

    Naive.
    An education for us sheltered/spoilt lot.

    I quite like the look out for yourself/cowboy approach they have.
    Fun & keeps the brain more alert.

    If you watch border patrol, either the Canadian or Oz one you will see just how dishonest and obnoxious Asian travellers are. I literally can't believe how bent they are sometimes.

    What fun it must be traveling with such calm and considerate people.

    China detains 25 who opened plane exits
    Chinese police detained 25 plane passengers who opened emergency exits before take-off after becoming angry that their flight was delayed by snow, state media reported, in the latest incident of rowdy behaviour by Chinese travellers.
    Last month a budget flight from Thailand to China was forced to return to Bangkok after a Chinese passenger threw hot water at a cabin attendant.

    Chinese state-run media branded four unruly passengers on board as "barbarians," reporting that one of them had threatened to blow up the plane in a row over a seating arrangement.

    An airport in Kunming saw chaotic scenes in 2013, when thousands of angry passengers were stranded for hours after heavy fog delayed flights.

    Those fancy european cars are assembled in China, with joint venture with Chinese films. So apart from maybe the engine and the cpu electronics, essentially they are pretty much chinese cars lol.
    we were told only VW and GM products are made there
