Certainly not as portrayed in many areas - maybe we were there during Civilised Chinese Tourist Week. Certainly there was no sign of them spending in the bars and restaurants we were using, but they did seem to be making extensive use of organised tours.
Chinese tourism is exactly the same here in Europe, there are large groups of them everywhere but they just go and look at the sights, go to a Chinese restaurant together and go back to the hotel for an early night. Most of them are retired couples and not exactly the type of people to cause any bother to anyone. The only time I've seen any of them in a bar is when big soccer games are on.
