China embarrassed by badly behaving tourists at Xian and Buddhist Shaolin Temple during May Day holiday period

China’s tourism industry may have returned to pre-pandemic levels during the  May Day holiday, but tourists have once again been called out for bad behaviour. Tourist attractions across mainland China saw various boorish behaviours including climbing up ancient walls and drawing on centuries-old steles as the government recorded 230 million trips during the 5-day public holiday, which was up 103 per cent from the same period in 2019. In Xian, the ancient Chinese capital famous for the Terracotta Army, some tourists were caught on video climbing up the ancient city walls, another major attraction of the city built over 600 years ago, causing bricks to fall, according to China Youth Daily.
