Changbai Mountain Tourists Quoted 10,000 RMB For Minibus
A Liaoning woman who went sightseeing in the Changbai Mountains with friends and family ended up paying 10,000 RMB for transport into the scenic area. Ms. Lin said when her party of ten arrived at the Lanjing Hot Spring Holiday Hotel they were told that tickets for regular transport into the mountains required waiting in long queues. Considering the health of her party, Lin decided to go for a private bus, but was quoted 7500 RMB. After much deliberation, she decided to accept, but by then the price was 10,000 RMB. A very reluctant party took up the offer. One netizen said scenic areas are full of “fraudsters”.

    Another beautiful Chinese place ruined by rip off merchants. Sadly most Chinese “scenic spots” are now like this. Anyone been to Guilin/Yangshuo? it’s pretty but you spend you entire day being scammed and ripped off, it really ruins the experience.

      As they say, “This is China.”
