Good to know that Philippines isn't among the most disrespectful countries on the planet for travelers and is in fact we are at the bottom of the list.
According to Forbes Magazine, the travel search site Skyscanner.com surveyed its users about where the locals never smile and people are particularly unfriendly. Some of the perceived rudeness may be attributable to cultural differences rather than anything intentional. For example, the Russian language is not as polite as English, so when Russians translate directly from Russian to English, it can sound rude to an English speaker even if they don’t mean it to.
The same principle may also apply to France: “As our closest neighbors, there has long been a familiar rivalry between the UK and France,” said Sam Baldwin, Skyscanner's travel editor. " “Even the French acknowledge that the way they are perceived is not entirely without basis."
The countries rated as having the least rude locals were Brazil, the Caribbean and the Philippines, the report added.
Here’s the complete list of 1,200 responses from Skyscanner's survey. Sixty-five percent of the respondents were from the UK and Ireland, while the rest were from North America, Australia, and other places in Europe.
