WE’VE trawled through the TD Window Seat archives to give you blast from the past. Here’s some gems from 07 Mar 2012:
GROUP buying website Living Social has confirmed Americans are the world’s worst-behaved travellers.
Intriguingly, the poll surveyed over 5,500 people, with more than 4,000 of these being US citizens themselves.
Four in 10 US respondents admitted to stealing something from their hotel room such as bathrobes & towels, while others ‘fessed’ up to swiping pillows, sheets, Bibles and even remote controls.
Surprisingly, 78% of the Americans polled said that they had visited at least one foreign country, and 61% said they had been to multiple, however latest figures show only 37% of Americans held a passport.
Good news for the local tourism industry however, with the most popular ‘dream’ destination for Americans to being a visit to Queensland’s Great Barrier Reef.
