Riot police had to be called to quell 120 angry Chinese tourists in the Vegas-like resort territory of Macau. The tourists complained they were being forced to shop even though they were on vacation to gamble, and they began rioting after their tour guides took them to a cold beach and locked them out of their tour busses.

    Wow, I’ve been to Macau, while I’ll admit that my tour guide nudged me towards one shopping area, he didn’t continually stop at shopping places. Sounds like a bad tour operator.

    It’s a good thing they weren’t being shown timeshares.
    They might have had to kill a few people.

    I’ve been to Hong Kong enough times to be amazed.

    That the tour bus operators didn’t steal their suitcases while the tourists were distracted rioting.

    Here I was thinking “maybe that’s just a little harsh”, then i read it again, and saw that it said quell instead. Now all I can do is giggle.

    Nitpick: buses are several transportation vehicles. Busses are lots of kisses.
