Chinese tourists are strange lot; year in and year out, they get caught in heavy traffic jam, spending hours on the road just to get to scenic spots, and when they finally arrive, they end up in a sea of people, that proverbial 'People mountain, people sea!'  Yet, every year they still go through that ritual, never tired of it!  I enjoy watching their outings from the comfort of my home!
