China, a country with five-thousand-year civilized history, is teaching its citizens how to behave. Two administrations issued two regulations demanding Chinese to pay attention to everyday etiquette and hygiene while travel abroad and within the country.

According to Xinhua, the Civilization Office with the Spiritual Civilization Steering Committee and the National Tourism Administration jointly issued an etiquette guide, asking Chinese traveling abroad not to litter, not to talk loudly, to respect queuing rules, be polite in public places, and observe the rule of “ladies first”.

Domestic travelers were asked not smoking in no-smoking areas, not talking loudly, not trampling on the grass, always wearing a shirt in public places and respecting the customs of religious and ethnic minorities.

Xinhua said uncivilized behavior is becoming a real embarrassment for China.
