Another year, another Golden week and more pictures of travelers climbing on things that they ought not to. Thus was the case yesterday, the first day of the national holiday, when visitors at a scenic spot in Hangzhou were photographed taking some daredevil detours when the area became too crowded to walk through.
Images posted on QQ News showed some of the less patient among the tourists at Hangzhou’s Baoshishan climbing up rocky cliffs to evade those pesky crowds.
It appears that others started doing it for fun. Fairly innocent.
And then the babies joined in.
On more than one occasion, we’ve reported on Chinese tourists getting seriously injured or killed after ignoring safety precautions at tourist attractions.
Last year, in response to traveler’s “uncivilized behavior” over the course of the week-long national holiday, the Chinese government issued a 64-page guidebook for travelers, urging them not to smoke or pick their noses in public, not to leave footprints on toilet seats and to keep their nose hairs trimmed, among other absurdities.
Baby cliff-climbing may be this year’s new addition.
