For a country that cares so much about 'losing face', it's amazing how poorly Chinese tourists behave in foreign countries when they are the "face" of China. My friend runs a restaurant in Sydney that many Chinese tourists go to. He asked me "when is the Chinese tourist season over? They are rude, demanding and messy. You can tell the Chinese from the Koreans and Japanese because those countries' tourists are polite and respectful" I would think comments like this alone would drive Chinese people to improve their behavior.
