Chinese city bans spitting

Ahead of Asian Games, Ghuangzou is wiping out habits likely to offend international visitors.

    The city of Ghuangzou in southern China will host the Asian Games later this year.

    In preparing for the event, the city has been cleaning up and that includes wiping out some habits that might offend international visitors.

    From now on, laundry has to be dried inside, not in public, and spitting at public places has been outlawed.
