They say Taiwan’s most beautiful scenery is its people, but is that really true? A woman tour guide slammed two female Taiwanese tourists on Facebook, saying that the pair of them had
expressed their dissatisfaction with the cleaning service at an Australian hotel by making a mess of the room. Their shocking antics included stuffing underwear in the refrigerator, scattering red-stained panties around and leaving the floor covered in toilet paper.
With an air of frustration, the tour guide said, “It was a shameful sight. All I could see in it was disgruntled revenge.” Following the incident, the Australian hotel wanted them to pay A$415, or about NT$9,868, in compensation. The two Taiwanese women haggled the amount down and settled at A$200, or roughly NT$4,756. At one point they even asked if A$150 would be enough.
The tour guide said that when they were preparing to board the plane for their return flight, a tour group member saw the two girls carrying “trophies” onto the plane. “Didn’t they say they had run out of money? It’s really a disgrace,” she sighed. “Do not keep saying that Hong Kong women make trouble in Taiwan or Chinese people have no class,” she went on. “When tourists behave like this abroad, they do not just bring shame on themselves; they also give their own country a bad name.” [FULL STORY]
