Scandinavian mundanity is the main attraction for Chinese tourists



Chinese tourists are often portrayed as the stereotypical bumbling camera‐waving grasshoppers, jumping from one attraction to the next, while ticking off their list of must-sees. Like all stereotypes, this one holds a kernel of truth within it, albeit one that applies equally to tourist groups of most nations. And while this type of behaviour does indeed occur among Chinese tourists, the same is also true for every other tourist nationality. Like all stereotypes, this particular portrayal homogenises the characteristics of a heterogeneous group and ignores complexity.
