If you want to win more 'likes' for your photos on Wechat's "Moments", then here is one tip you don't want to miss: Do not let any tourists ruin your photo.
But is it possible for you to take a picture with great scenery without any tourists in it during the May Day Holiday, notorious for being the second busiest holiday period in China?
