I'm not saying there are differences in mannerisms. However, the comment the above poster made about 'annoying voices' is plain f'in ridiculous.

Or pretty much anywhere for that matter. Check out what our lot are up to in Malia at the moment :doh: .

I hate to get a plane back to the UK that stops off at Bangkok because of the tattooed scum that board there. Bunch of classless whoring pedos.

Brits in the 'Dam are old boring farts these days. I could give you an extensive list of fuckup destination for British chavs, all over Europe, and it would be extensive. Face it. Brits abroad are HATED by pretty much everybody.

There are too many links, so I'd suggest googling Malia. Three reported rapes and a fatal stabbing last week. The locals are pining for the time when they just had Germans, Danes and Scandinavians. Unfortunately, they got greedy and went downmarket. Big mistake.

Unfortunately they wouldn't provide me with any specifics other than "George Bush is definitely American and Hugh Grant British." I was in a bit of a rush to watch the rugby so I didn't have time to point out the many flaws in their theory.

I wonder if this is a common belief in Taiwan?

It may be a commonly held belief here, but they can't tell for shit. I'm of solid British (Scots and English) stock who went to South Africa to fight in the Boer War and stayed. Yet I always have people telling me I'm American. :idunno:

Or Prague for that matter. People are always talking about the number of Yanks in Prague, but whenever I've been there I've always been amazed at the bad behaviour of Britain's underclass on vacation. :lol: The look of disgust that the locals were giving the chavs was priceless. When it comes to loud, obnoxious tourists on the continent, I'd say that Amsterdam, the South of Spain, and Prague are full of chavs taking advantage of cheap flights and even cheaper liquor.

I felt that way in Prague, too. In fact, I didn't meet another American in Prague (I was there on my own for two days just for kicks because I was in Europe otherwise to attend a wedding, and had a very quiet, lovely, solitary two days wandering around) that I know of, but tons and tons and tonnnnnns of Brits. Some seemed fine, just nice folks on vacation. Others not so much: a lot of drunks, a stag weekend (they all had custom matching t-shirts with stupid nicknames on them like 'Meatpie' and 'The Chugger'), some loud folks, you know, that sort of thing.

So "lots of Yanks in Prague" surprises me too. I didn't see a one, other than myself. And if I did, they weren't making noise like (some of) the Brits.

The teeth for sure. Followed by the pasty lack-of-sun locked-in-an-office all day look
The clincher for me is the "Brits On The Piss" pack hoarding where 20 or 30 primeval Brits gather who have never seen or met each other until 20 minutes ago. They then decide to go on the piss destroying all and sundry in their path,similar to a neutron bomb.
True their behaviour is a national embarrassment but the average Brit who visits places like the Balearics on their annual liver pickling pilgrimage has nothing else on their mind.
