Unexpectedly, they became a tourist attraction, as many people began taking pictures of them.
With clever thinking, a man in the group created a poster which stated: “To take a picture of us, it is 10 Yuan per picture.”
The man stated, “I didn’t want to charge people to take pictures of us. I was just bothered by being photographed. There were too many people who wanted to take pictures of us.”
Fortunately, his idea was successful. Some tourists who wanted to take pictures decided to leave after reading the poster.
Have you thought of an idea to prevent unwanted pictures or stares in China?
