(CGTN) China's Ministry of Culture and Tourism issued this week a travel advisory, warning Chinese tourists to fully assess the risks of traveling to the United States.

Tourists are urged to stay aware of America's public security situation and stay as safe as they can following recent gun violence in the U.S. state of Virginia. CGTN spoke to several people working in Beijing to hear their thoughts on whether the alert will have an impact on them.


Many people told CGTN that the influence of the travel warning would not last long, and the relations between the two countries will be back to normal in one or two years.


Those who have been to the U.S., the travel warning does not seem like a big deal. They said the risks mentioned by our ministry is present anywhere, not only the U.S. Those who have not visited the U.S. are however concerned.


Ding Zhipeng, manager of W.PRIME gym, said his friends had a bad experience going through the customs, and he won't put himself in such a trouble.


Zhu Yan, who works in a travel company, told CGTN the recent trade war between China and the U.S. had caused a negative effect on the tourism industry, especially for the travel between the two countries. She hoped the two countries could fix the problems wisely.

   Right-O,  Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines are a much better choice...

The risks have been arpund for a long time, but highlighting it now is China's way of sending a message to US that it has yet another weapon it this trade war!  If US does not heed the warning, it will soon find this lucrative trade drying up!!

Ying Ying made a terrible mistake of trusting a white man; she would nver get into the car of a stranger in China, but, like many Chinese, she must have thought white men are kind and gentlemanly; that is a fatal mistake!  In China thye won't even talk to strangers!  They have been brought up from young to not talk to strangers, "Buyao he moshengren shuo hua"!  out of fear of being cheated!

Do you really think it's going to hurt them? 99% of the goods that are now made in China used to be made in the US. It's not a big deal for them to rebuild the factories and restart US product production.

"It's not a big deal for them to rebuild the factories and restart US product production."

You are really out of touch!  'rebuild factories, retart US production'? Their jobs are lost forever, not to China but to high tech, and they havent been re-skilling, so how to?  Jobs are also going to Vietnam and Cambodia, etc, not going back to US. That is  a pipe dream!  Oh, Trump wants to bring back out-dated industry like coalmining!  So funny, when the world has moved on to new energy!

You are crying out for outdated one child policy, which has been proven wrong. Now they are encouraging parents to have more than one, even three!

If the US really did that, the factories would fold the day it was opened, unless the US shut itself out of the entire outside world. That's a simple finanical equation you are incapaple of solving.

Thank god, you are not D Trump's economic adviser.

On the contrary, China's expansion is a boon for the entire population on earth, they are kind, hard-working, and smart, and will eventually supplant the dumb, vile ones on every continent.

Explaining about the values of Chinese folks to opposing forces / nations who the latter are so weary and nasty is surely a waste of time. Chinese folks ought to take the hit from the silly American gestures with wisdom; that is, do NOT need to visit an unwelcoming USA. The Earth less the USA is still round and big enough for 1.5 billion Chinese folks to play, spend, work, live and enjoy.  

Nothing so spectacular there in the USA other than an accumulation of hatreds, hates, political back-stabbings and racism matters bearing mass shootings and killings which are almost a daily scenario or affair. Their "fathers" have been teaching their own kids to shoot and kill that is also magnified by a slack gun law and since many "fathers" had been inside war zones all over the world for a century to date. Asking them to kick the habit is as difficult as telling them that cocaine intakes are harmful.

So, smart parents must not insist that their kids be sent abroad to pursue higher education and learnings at unwelcoming faculties / nations which are harbored and anchored by anti-China elements.

Medical Attention

Obtaining medical attention in the US is quite difficult. There are insufficient taxis as everyone is expected to hire a car. The country is massively deforested. It really isn't worth visiting.

It's not temporary, it's a constant trend, as the surplus grows further in the month after the D Trump tarrifs took effect.

Brits are not even safe. A report recently exposed the brutality at US airports involving british tourists entering the country. Some were kept in a room for 16 hrs without food and water, and had their phones and computers taken off them after getting the passwords.....
One british woman was meeting her fiance when she was accused of planning to over stay her visa, after police found a msge on her phone saying we will be together forever soon..........she got barred for life of entering the US again..
