Chinese tourists are literally afraid of nothing — not even a swamp of hungry crocodiles.
Online photos showing a group of Chinese tourists on a flimsy looking raft and feeding a swarm of crocodiles have made everyone else very uneasy.
The group of tourists were visiting the Elephant Kingdom park in Chonburi while on a trip to Thailand.
Photos show men, women and children standing aboard the raft situated in the middle of a green swampy lagoon. The raft appears to be made of plastic barrels, metal railings and wooden beams.
The Chinese tourists were given sticks with meat dangling from them to feed the crocodiles. Over a dozen large crocodiles can be seen encircling the raft in the photo.

While no one was injured from the excursion, safety concerns have been raised about the park.
The Chonburi tourist park is home to 4,000 crocodiles, according to an Elephant Kingdom spokesperson.
The Chinese tourists’ apparent disregard for safety has been denounced by netizens on Weibo, with one commenter asking:
“What if those people got pulled down or even fell into the lake accidentally?”
