Hordes Fight Over Plates of Jumbo Shrimp at All-You-Can-Eat Buffet in Thailand
Amateur footage, which surfaced online recently and showed tourists allegedly from mainland China going on a feeding frenzy at a hotel’s all-you-can-eat buffet luncheon in Thailand, has earned the ire of netizens in the country and abroad.
In the video, which lasted slightly over half a minute, about a dozen tourists are seen scrambling to grab several plates full of what appeared to be prawn fritters served in trays. Some of those in the footage also appeared to jostle each other, shoveling the prawns with their plates.
The footage, which went viral on social media, was apparently captured by a patron at a hotel in Chiang Mai, Thailand, and shared on Facebook late last week. It was not long before netizens took to Facebook and Twitter to deride the “obnoxious” and “greedy” behavior after seeing that much of the highly-fought-over food was left unconsumed and wasted.
The behavior of Chinese tourists abroad have posed a headache to their government, which is struggling to get Chinese nationals to adhere to the more “civilized” norms of the countries that they visit.
