Travelore News: Chinese Teenager First Tourist Blacklisted For "Uncivilized Behavior"
A Chinese teenager has become the first local tourist to be blacklisted for uncivilized behavior in the country after new rules kicked in last month to shame citizens who conduct themselves badly.
Eighteen-year-old Li Wenchun was seen climbing onto a statue depicting a female soldier of the Red Army - the predecessor of the People's Liberation Army - at a commemorative park for a photo late last month.
His antic was captured on camera by passers-by and posted on social media where he was heavily berated.
Li is to stay on the tourist blacklist for 10 years, said the China National Tourism Administration (CNTA) on Tuesday. This means he would be closely watched whenever he visits a tourist site in China during this period, The Beijing News reported.
