Ugly American still exist

The website Expedia recently released the results of a survey given to hoteliers around the world that asked who the best tourists are. The Japanese came out as the best tourist at number one, while the Chinese were rated the worst at number 31. The ugly American was rated number 15 tied with Thailand.

It was said that Americans are the worst-dressed, worst-behaved, and left a mess in their rooms. While the Japanese along with the British, and Germans were the tidiest.

We Americans need to learn when we travel abroad to keep our rude behavior at our oceans edge and respect other people and their culture. However it is amusing to read and see the boorish behavior of the oafs we live among.
