Japanese tourists some 20 or 30 years ago had a reputation, well-deserved, for turning up en masse and going crazy taking photographs. These days the Japanese tourist is a more independent beast and the snap-happy mantle has been taken by the nascent Chinese market, now travelling beyond Asia to far-flung destinations such as Greece.

Large groups descend on the famous beaches with seemingly one goal – to take more photographs than their fellow travellers. Landscapes be damned, it’s all about people posing, arms in the air, legs flayed, jumping, skipping… a pictorial trophy for the folks back home.
