Filipinos Among the Least Rude in the World -- Survey

Posted: Apr 09, 2012

MANILA — The Philippines is among the least rude countries for foreign tourists, a survey by a leading European travel site showed.

Brazilians are the least rude, followed by the Caribbean islands and the Filipinos.
France, meanwhile, is considered the world’s rudest nation, followed by Russia and the United Kingdom, according to the poll conducted by Skyscanner.

“Taking 19 percent of the vote, the French have long been known for their abrupt and curt nature, especially when dealing with foreign tourists, which has often been taken as rudeness by visitors,” Skyscanner said.

Russia got 17 percent and 10 percent for UK.

“Russians can be more direct when talking, which may be misconstrued as being rude,” said Tatiana Danilova, Russian market manager for Skyscanner. “However this is more a difference in culture than genuine rudeness.”

The world’s rudest nationalities, according to Skyscanner, are: French 19.2%; Russian 16.6%; British 10.4%; German 9.9; Chinese 4.3%; American 3.3%; Spanish 3.1%; Italian 2.3%; Polish 2.2%; Turkish 2.1%
