    You are lucky you escaped for being rob.\nThe police and local thugs target “Chinos “\nThe place is getting real bad now since the economy is getting worse.Despaerate people do desperate things.\nThe lower class people think “ChinoS ” are here to steal their money.\n”Chinos ” own all the grocery stores in all the poor neighborhoods.\nThey get rob often and sadly they also get killed sometimes.

    • Yeah, I’ve heard and read similar stories online. Chinese people are quite hated by some for the exact reasons that you mentioned. I did have another Chinese friend who passed through Venezuela on a motorbike during his trip and he had nothing but good things to say and didn’t even mention the danger at all. So perhaps it does depends on where you’re at.

        • All true what I said :) but perhaps me and my friend got really lucky! I shall warn the rest of the Chinos, thanks for the warning anyway though!
