Once inside, it was apparent that Tuo River Town was a carnival. Though pretty much no automobiles were allowed inside, the congestion level was still absolute. Rather than cars, motorcycles, and buses I was being run down, pushed to the the wayside, and blockaded by truly massive amounts of tourists.
Huge tour groups following guides with megaphones or microphones wired to mini amplifiers ruled this place. They roved in mobs of twenty to thirty, and stomped where they pleased like herds of cattle — each tourist kept on the tail of the tourist in front of them without regard for who or what they trampled. Entire streets were completely blocked off by these hoards, who didn’t seem to care that there were literally dozens to hundreds of people struggling to get by them.
Автор, конечно, жуткий сноб и пурист. Он потом еще пишет, что лучше бы этот город снесли, чем превратили в туристический аттракцион. Интересно, про Венецию он так же сказал бы?
А секрет прост: нечего было ехать туда в августе.
Завтра расскажу, как выглядят китайские ночные клубы.
