A new government campaign aims to combat uncivilized behaviour by Chinese tourists. The Chinese government hopes that the new tourism campaign will teach Chinese that travel abroad some manners.

China’s National Tourism Administration is encouraging civilised behaviour while traveling, following a series of embarrassing incidents. In Osaka, Japan, Chinese tourists have been caught abusing delicate cherry blossom trees for the perfect spring selfie.

Several well-known Chinese figures such as sports commentator Wei Yi Dong and singer Liu Gang were present at the campaign launch ceremony at Beijing's Summer Palace to support the cause. Mashable reports that during the campaign year, the tourism board will be planning activities to educate Chinese tourists about green tourism, keeping the environment clean and dining etiquette.
