A special train for Chinese tourists has been launched at a mountain resort in Switzerland, following tensions over cultural differences.

..

Swiss newspaper Blick reports that some tourists visiting Mount Rigi in the Swiss Alps have become incensed with Chinese tourists crowding the corridors while taking pictures from the train.

..

There are also reports of rudeness in packed carriages, and some even say theyve seen tourists spit on the floor.

..

Peter Pfenniger, chief of Rigi Bahnen said the huge influx of visitors from Asia had brought the struggling railway company back on track, but that their strong presence is a challenge.

To ameliorate tensions, special trains have been created for tourist groups from Asia. Toilets are now cleaned more regularly, and signs have been put up showing how to use them correctly, the paper reports.

BEIJING: A mountain resort in Switzerland has launched special train service for Chinese tourists. One reason is the rising number of Chinese tourists. Another reason is complaints from other tourists about their noisy and rude behavior, according to reports reaching here.

Special trains have been launched for Chinese tourists to avoid bad feelings between them and other classes of tourists, Blick said. Toilets are being cleaned more often. Signs have been put up "showing how to use them correctly", Blick reported.

The criticism irked many netizens on the Chinese social media, who said Switzerland was benefiting hugely due to tourists from China, and should not be complaining too much. Besides, it should pay special attention to the needs of Chinese tourists because they can help revive the Swiss economy.

Global Times, a Beijing newspaper associated with the Communist Party, quoted Pfenniger saying that Chinese tourists are still very welcome and will not be prevented from boarding ordinary trains.

Swiss railway launches special trains for Chinese tourists following complaints of rude behavior

With unruly throngs of Chinese tourists descending upon a serene mountain resort in Switzerland and disturbing other visitors searching for some peace and quiet, a Swiss train firm has offered the logical solution of launching special train services dedicated to transporting noisy Asian tourists.

..

Swiss newspaper Blick reports that some tourists visiting Mount Rigi in the Swiss Alps have become incensed by the large number of Chinese tourists that crowd the corridors of trains while taking pictures which leads to rudeness and even stepping in spit (Gasp!).

..

Of course, Peter Pfenniger, chief of Rigi Bahnen, is quick to admit that the huge influx in visitors from Asia have helped to prop up the struggling railway company with nearly half of all foreign visitors coming from China. Still, Pfenniger admits that "their strong presence is a challenge."
