Malaysian tourists must be educated when going overseas. It is with disgust that I am writing about the negative traits and antics of our Malaysian tourists abroad. I have just returned from an overseas package tour and feel compelled to write about the annoying habits of my fellow travellers.
They talk loudly at tourist spots and hotels regardless of others around.
They expect everyone to move away when they want to take photos. Is this possible where there are hundreds of other tourists?
Malaysians are the only people who use umbrellas in the sun/rain. I was poked three times. The umbrellas also block views.
In the plane, they are not careful when taking things from the overhead compartment. One woman, while taking her bag, broke her plastic water bottle and spilled water on my head.
The toilets in the plane and elsewhere are always in shambles after they've used them.
When it's stated "don't walk on the grass", they still do.
Where it clearly states "video/photography is prohibited", they still use their cameras.
Where it is clearly announced not to sit on ancient ruins nor touch them, the Malaysian tourists still do, little realising the harm they do to old and fragile artifacts.
The way Malaysians behave in dining halls is the worst I've seen. They pile food on their plates which goes to waste as they can't finish it. They stuff extra food and drinks in their huge bags. Don't they know the food is to be eaten there and not carted away? They have a nasty habit of spitting food bits on the dinner table rather than removing them gently from their mouths with a spoon. One even belched loudly.
Lastly, I heard from a friend that a Malaysian group in a foreign country was segregated in another dining room from other tour groups. They were served just enough food. When they complained, the hotel management showed them a CCTV camera recording the group pilfering food off the tables and stuffing it into their bags.
Malaysian tourists should be educated on how to behave before we leave for foreign lands.
