Taiwanese VS Mainland China tourists...

Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

Taiwanese VS Mainland China tourists...

Post by Kampuchia Crumbs » Thu Jul 12, 2018 4:44 am

Curious,

I've noticed that there is a LOT of dislike on the Chinese (tourist/workers) in the KOW. It's like they are the new "ugly American" in todays world (yell at me, I'm American).

Question is do the Taiwanese people visiting in Cambodia act any differently than the people from the mainland? Any experiences?

Isn't Taiwan just a part of China? :stir:

I have worked in China and did not like it much (well, I liked the country but the people not so much). I then spent a couple of weeks in Taiwan and was pleasantly surprised. Apart from the fact that I did not realize how green the island is, people were considerably nicer, better behaved, and friendlier than their mainland cousins.

When it comes to tourists: well, groups of any nationality tend to be awful and the Taiwanese middle-aged visitors coming in large groups are no exception (and their dress sense leaves a lot to be desired).

The Taiwanese people I worked with were always angry when I called them "Chinese". So of course I kept calling them Chinese.

In my experience, Taiwanese customers are worlds better than mainlanders. My boss has been seconds away from putting up a "No Chinese" sign on the front door on multiple occasions.

IN terms of tourists though, I find most tourists are obnoxious. Yanks, Brits, East Asians, South Asians...etc...

dont think nationality plays an important part here but education, social upbringing n moral ethics does
