British People Win Coveted ‘Worst Dressed Tourists’ Award

Congratulations, America! We have finally found someone who is possibly more disliked internationally than we are. 2,717 European travelers were polled about national habits abroad by TripAdvisor.com, and here are some of the findings:

  • 36 percent said that British people were the worst-dressed tourists, followed by the Germans and the Americans, respectively. That horrible socks-with-sandals look got a particular mention.
  • The Italians won the best-dressed prize. Not a shocker, considering they come from the land of Prada, Gucci, and Valentino.
  • Apparently, the French are the worst about constantly looking at work email while on vacation.
  • 93 percent of Brits say that they attempt to speak the local language wherever they travel, while 20 percent of French people say they make no effort at all.
