Tour agencies owner and operators are becoming Millionaires overnight. One can book a 13 night and 14 day trip to Europe for as little as 3500 USD (little over 20K rmb  per person and also is the cost of a round trip 1st class ticket to San Francisco) . See the sights of Italy, Spain, France and UK in a whirlwind trip which will leave most people dazed for a month and gasping for air when it is over not to mention the gastric wars produced with cultural food differences.

Poor lodging, transportation and food are supplied but be sure to be able to buy your own. One is able to spend 1/2 hour at the Eiffel Tower at which most of that time is taken walking to and from the bus. The horror stories coming out of Europe are growing each day of stranded tourists who get separated from their group and can't speak the local language much less even a little English.

The tourists I refer to are the retired crowd..55 and older. most never having been out of their hometown much less China. If you know someone who is going to travel this summer "Prepare Them". Make sure they have a reputable travel agency---doing business for at least 10 years...and a kilometer of verifiable references that they pay their bills and everyone gets home safe and on time.

In short, be prepared to be abused, and disabused of your host country's friendliness.  Money talks, but more money sometimes is needed for deaf ticketing clerks, waiters and other staff at departure points.  And after wads have left your hand, there is the blindness to your presence and dignity that needs more manna to overcome.  In the end, you end up wiser, vowing never to go again, until your friendly travel agent calls next with a wonderful and restful trip you deserve.

Realistically  the  World's Most despised International tourist award first went to the Americans of the 1970's--The Japanese in the 1980's--and now The Chinese in the second decade of the 21st century.
Common denominator---Too much money , in too many individual hands, and no respect for foreign cultures.
Other countries of the world made the same mistakes but these BIG THREE came upon the world wave after wave.
Much of the good will earned by the American presence during WW2 was all but wiped out by loud, brash and know it all tourist.s...
Japan had more to lose in world opinion and did just that until they climbed down from the clouds and stayed home..
Now China is taking it's turn with their new found riches and venturing out to see the world outside of Asia.

Every Nation has a big sign at all ports of exit.......THANK YOU FOR VISITING AND SPENDING YOUR MONEY----NOW GO HOME.
