China's 64 pg pamphlet for travelling citizens: "Don't pick your nose in public" and other nuggets

Not sure if this is disturbing or "it's about time" kind of things (WSJ):

A new set of guidelines by China National Tourism Administration, issued late last month ahead of the key Golden Week vacation period that kicked off on Oct. 1 National Day, aims to set such tourists right.

Among the admonitions contained in the 64-page illustrated handbook: Don’t sneeze in front of others. Ditto for picking noses and teeth.

While the booklet contains suggestions for Chinese when traveling at home, the main target is to improve the lamentably poor reputation of Chinese tourists abroad.
