The Chinese, Koreans and ? Are flooding Russia
« on: July 02, 2016, 09:49:05 AM »
I have noticed this year in St Petersburg the city seems to be packed full of Chinese and Koreans.. every where you go there are hordes of them snapping away none stop.
The centre seems to be taken over by them recently and another change I have noticed at Pulkovo Airport recently is all notice panels are now in Russian/English and Chinese.. never seen that before!
You check out your departure gate and all is in Chinese.. :laugh:

Fair play to the Russians for adapting. :thumbsup:

Be careful that they do not become "unwanted visitors" like some of the Asian tourists have visited other countries.   :-[
