"Hotel touts" Yangshuo Warnings Or Dangers Tip by bhemak

Yangshuo Warnings and Dangers: 26 reviews and 19 photos

On entering the city a tout asked us if we wanted to see his hotel. He said they started at $US 30. I laughed, said no and kept walking. He followed. I asked politely for him to leave us alone. His English was good so I know he understood. After ten minutes, he was still following us. I intentionally bumped into him and said more directly leave us alone. Ten more minutes followed and he was still following us. I eventually swore at him in Chinese. He got very upset and told me I was ruining his country. He's trying to rip me off and then irritates me by following me for more than half an hour, but somehow I was ruining his country.

This eventually worked as he left us alone.
