Being in the USA this week (so please expect my posts to be sporadic), pleasantly reminds me of how polite everyone is here. I always enjoy people saying “excuse me” and holding an elevator for you, rather than trying to shut it on you while you have one arm in the door.
So where are the rudest people to be found while you are travelling? Take a look below and when you next travel there see if you agree.
In first place… France. Outside of Paris people are generally nicer, and to be fair, Parisians can be just as rude to each other as they are to tourists.
Russia takes second place.
UK is third and actually voted themselves “world’s worst tourists” too.
Fourth is Germany.
The countries rated as having the least rude locals were Brazil, the Caribbean and the Philippines. And my nicest nations would have to be Japan, Thailand and New Zealand.
