A Chinese tour guide has had to kiss her job goodbye after a video of her scolding tourists for not shopping enough went viral.

The woman had reportedly threatened to cancel the group's next trip and not pay for their return tickets if they did not spend up to 3,000 yuan (about N96,000) each.

Officials in south-western Yunnan say she violated national tourism laws as Chinese tour operators have been banned from enforcing shopping stops and seeking illegitimate profit.

In the 4 minute viral video (in Chinese), the female tour guide pleads with a bus load of tourists, asking them: "Where are your sense of conscience and morals?"

"If all of you don't spend more than 3,000 or 4,000 yuan, we'll cancel the trip, the tour company won't be responsible for the return to Shenyang"

BBC reports that the YouTube video, which has been widely circulated on Chinese-language social networking sites, sparked outrage with many users sharing their own bad experiences of tour operators in China.
