China Tourist Damages Historical Relic in Egypt

Though China’s tourism industry is growing fast along with the country’s rapid economic growth, some ill-behaved tourists may present a challenge to the protection and maintenance of popular tourist sites.

Ding Jinhao’s personal information has been exposed on Chinese internet and even his primary school’s website has being hacked. Ding’s parents contacted local media, apologizing for their son, admitting that they hadn’t properly educated their child and pleaded for society to give him a chance. The photo, which was posted last Friday, has been retweet more than 90,000 times on Chinese social media and triggered public outrage. So is it too harsh for the young kids to face this kind of public censure ? In fact, nothing seems more formidable on the wrong values and morality of Chinese young generation …
