25% Tariff Only For Americans

A local tourist attraction posted a notice that they will charge Americans 25% more for tickets, claiming that as the “tariff.” Naturally this action caused a stir online, with some people strongly considering it as support to the Chinese government during the “trade war” with America recently.

The notice is from Changping Yin Xian Resort, stating that “From this day on, every American tourist who buys tickets must add 25% tariff. Please know! If you have any inconvenience, please consult the US embassy!” A female staff member who works at the customer service center confirmed the new “policy.” She indicated that one ticket is priced at 139 RMB—whereas Americans need to pay 173.8 RMB in keeping with the “tariff.” Can’t we just be chill…?
