Remember Kids – The Olympics are not the Coachella of Sports

BEIJING (Reuters) – The organizers of this summer’s Beijing Olympics Monday reminded foreigners coming to China for the Games to behave, warning them that everything from protesting without permission to sleeping outdoors was banned.

The extensive list, written only in Chinese and put on the organizers’ official website (www.beijing2008.cn), also said that purchase of Olympics’ tickets did not guarantee the holder would automatically get a Chinese visa.

Entry would be banned to anyone who was intent on “subversion” upon arriving in China, those with mental illnesses and sexually transmitted diseases and people who wished to engage in prostitution, the rules read.

“Foreigners must respect Chinese laws while in China and must not harm China’s national security or damage social order,” the rules say.
