People’s Daily sent a tweet to remark upon the poor manners of the group of Chinese tourists. After swarming the buffet line to grab an excessive amount of prawns, the diners left much of it uneaten.

A Chinese netizen from Fujian wrote:

“Us mainlanders act like locusts abroad, no matter where we go, not a blade of grass grows.”
