Editor's note: An incident involving a family of three Chinese tourists who were removed by police when they were not allowed to wait in the lobby of a hotel in Sweden, has aroused heated online discussions. While the response of Swedish police is under scrutiny, some reflect on the behaviors of some Chinese tourists when abroad. What are the foreigners' impressions of Chinese tourists? Some readers share their experiences.

Chinese tourists are travelers without "friction" in any way. Chinese people are generally cheerful, easy going, kind, attentive, humorous as from my experiences from travelling in China. But when overseas in a group, always photographing?? I can understand it's an experience for a life time, and a kind of "trophy" to bring some photos back home.

But all the time? Every minute - a camera - Iphone . What about being present, exchanging conversations with local people? Not a chance. When I was in China I was happy meeting people, I look forward to have conversations with Chinese visitors, even for only some words. I know you are charming Give it a chance, forget Camera for just a minute or two?
