Chinese tourists are listed as the Most Unwelcome Tourists by the media home and abroad. Some uncivil behaviors of the Chinese tourists include:
1. They refuse to give tips to the tour guides and servants in the hotel.
2. They prefer to jump the queue.
3. They spend much time taking photos. It’s said that two Chinese couples have taken much time to take portraits in front of the Palais de Versailles. A group of British tourists who want to take pictures at the same location finally leave after waiting for too long.
4. They don’t mute the sound of their mobile phones when enjoying the performances.
5. They talk very loudly in public and don’t care about others.
………………..
Have you met some Chinese tourists in your country? What’s your impression on them?

Servants in the hotel? I bet comments like this make the staff happy when you are there. They are NOT servants.

Hotels employ many people with different functions and specific titles... "servant" is probably not best choice of words to classify them.  Depending on the context, "servant" can be demeaning or insulting, akin to "slave"... as 'futsanglung' points out, the word "staff" is the probably the most appropriate and is definitely the most common.

Personally, I've never encountered Chinese tourists in my small and remote hometown or country... I was here in China well before foreign tourist travel for Chinese nationals became the norm.  Tourists of ANY nationality should exercise some common sense and courtesy before traveling to a foreign country; namely learn and abide by the local customs and rules of etiquette.

Chinese tourists are the same as Chinese in China, I cannot see how they would automatically change their behaviour when they take a holiday.

Many/most Chinese do not follow what those in the West would consider to be polite and reasonable behavior (sorry, they don't!). There is very little concept of etiquette and being considerate of others is not something that is even considered by many Chinese. This doesn't mean that Chinese are bad people, but it does mean that they will be perceived in a bad way by foreigners oversees, that they will likely receive less than a warm welcome and even if some Chinese do not behave in unpleasing ways, they will often still be tarred with the same brush, as those that went before them.
