The Times reported on August 4 that the now infamous Chinese tourist blacklist already has 19 names. Chinese authorities have been cracking down on Chinese tourists who are rude or violent in foreign countries. Earlier this year, the National Tourism Administration announced the creation of a blacklist for the worst behaved Chinese tourists.
The blacklist would be shared with all government departments and agencies, and citizens on the blacklist are banned from further travel abroad. Tourist industry organizations and tour operators can also be disciplined for tourist behavior.
The 19 tourists on the blacklist committed crimes including the destruction of public facilities or heritage sites, violating social customs at tourist destinations, and crimes related to illegal gambling and pornography.
Chinese tourists spend 14.5 billion USD abroad every year, more than tourists from any other country.

Short of those who never read the news nor interacted with mainland chinese, globally most of those of Chinese ethnic origin consider it insulting if you mistaken them for a Dai Lu Ren, the official name for mainland chinese. We all know why.
