The autocomplete algo in Baidu has revealed what appears to be stereotypical searches in China about countries in Europe. Funny or sad?

From personal experience I would say the situation is the same in reverse..Europeans ( and even more so USAians ) have extremely stereotypical views of China and other Asian and SE Asian countries..
Sad ..:(

And as for France, a leading query asks why locals in the top European tourist destination for Chinese tourists so often cheat Chinese travelers.

Uh ... More often than they cheat travelers from everywhere else on the planet?
