When you travel the world, like it or not, you are a representative of your country, and your behavior—good or bad—can reflect on your nation as a whole.
That’s why, while we’re all for spontaneity, sometimes it’s a good idea to stop and think before you chug that eighth beer and start dancing in the streets.
Recently, we at Triposo conducted a survey to learn more about bad tourist behavior abroad. We asked respondents to confess to their own travel sins—which included everything from stealing to public urination—and also to report on the misbehavior of others.
We also asked them which countries they thought behaved the worst while traveling. The answers might surprise you.
6. Germany's tourists aren't good at being tourists OR travelers.
Famous for its bier and brats and a popular tourist destination in its own right, Germany has drummed up quite the reputation for its citizens abroad, garnering many votes as the worst-behaved nation. (They’re also ranked high when it comes to travel-related complaints. Go figure.)
5. Australia: At any given time, a large proportion of Australians are out and about traveling abroad, which might explain their performance on this top-ten list...
Along with Germany, Australia attracted a large vote as some of the world’s most notoriously ill-behaved travelers.
