Authorities in Beijing recently announced they will begin keeping track of Chinese tourists that behave poorly abroad.
The announcement comes in response to a string of incidents in which Chinese tourists have engaged in embarrassing conduct while on vacation.
According to various media reports, poorly behaved tourists will be contacted, upon their return, by provincial and national authorities in an effort to fix their conduct abroad.
Customs officers, border control, police and even financial institutions will be contacted, if deemed necessary, according to the China national tourism administration website.
More Chinese than ever before are taking trips outside China, due almost exclusively to higher incomes and an established middle class.
