Why? In the early years when communist China opened its door to the outside world in 1980's, foreign visitors were asked to visit some state-owned factories and Friendship Shops, because Chinese authority wanted to tell you that communism is better than capitalism. Later more and more factories and gift shops found out it was a good idea to sell products to tourists. Eventually many tourists decide that they have the right to say NO.
