Top 10 Worst Tourist Nationalities

This is a list about travelers (by nationality) which have the worst behaviour while visiting other countries.

That doesn't mean all those people are bad, it just means that some of these travellers give their whole countrymen a bad name. And often the culture is just different, so people don't know they behave naughty.

The Top Ten

1 The Chinese The Chinese

A lot of Chinese people are very selfish, obnoxious, rude, and loud. They only see themselves and think about themselves. They cut in line, they let their kids go potty in public, they chew with their mouths open, they scream and yell at each other from miles away, and just do not understand common sense. It is disgusting to see them act in that way in different countries and they need to be taught that how they act in their own countries doesn't apply anywhere else. I feel bad for the children whose parents don't teach them that because in the future half the world is going to hate China for how they behave in other countries. It's also an embarrassment to the well educated and polite Chinese people around the globe.

Some are nice, but if you find the worst of them, you will be extremely pissed at how they think they're above the people who actually live in the place they just went and toured in.

I work in a hotel in Venice. Their loud and you should see how they leave their rooms, incredibly dirty.

Rude, cut in line, dirty, behave like they have to be treated like a king & can do whatever they like, loud

2 The Americans The Americans

I have to agree despite being American myself. After all, a French officer in Courage the Cowardly Dog said, "stupid Americans". Wow. Truer words could have never been said by a background cartoon character to describe only the worst of American tourists! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I am an american but this is true we all think we all are so great and live in the best country.

3 The Russians The Russians

One of them nearly ruined my holiday. How retarded is it to leave your clothes in a changing booth on a beach only to come back later and break in without any sense of respect for the person currently changing (I.e. me)?!

They have no courtesy and I have almost been pushed out of the train by a Russian trying to get on at the same time as me, and no acknowledgement was made either

Some are very nice, but others are just drunken, impatient and start a fight with everyone... this is extremely annoying - Lemoon

4 The Indians The Indians

Don't respect personal space and don't watch their kids

Why is India even in the list? Indians are very gentle they respect the country they visit.?

Weathly Indian tourists expect people to treat them like kings.

5 The British The British

Hmm...I'm ashamed to say the Brits should be higher! Sometimes we behave appallingly (excluding myself of course) They seem to think that people abroad are the foreigners in their own country! Honestly...what a picture they paint of other decent, respectful Brits. Tsk! - Britgirl

Gah! ; just realised! This is NOT the true Union Flag! This is so disrespectful! - Britgirl

6 The Germans The Germans
7 The Italians The Italians V 1 Comment
8 The French The French
9 The Spanish The Spanish

Certainly, while I am a good tourist, some aren't. The problem is that this is one of the loudest countries and we go to bed at 11, 12 or even 1 o'clock. This is also a country that loves to party. - Martinglez

Loud, unrespectfull... their concept of tourism is to go abroad comparing everything with Spain.
Their have an incrediblle lack of open mind about different things, different ways of living. Extremely self-centered. A kind of "me,me,me..."
They don't hesitate in making fun of everything they see.
