It is known that in many countries of the East and West, Russian tourists are treated with restraint, to put it mildly. Let's not deny that the behavior of some Russian tourists is far from ideal. But there are many cases of inadequate behavior of foreigners in our country. The drunken antics of Germans and Italians can be seen in any big city.
A bit of history
In post-Soviet times, a huge number of our compatriots flooded abroad. The overwhelming majority of tourists did not know how to behave, therefore aggressive behavior against the background of drunkenness is a parable in tongues. Today the situation has undoubtedly changed for the better, but not everywhere. As before, Russian tourists are noisy in restaurants and on the beach.
If earlier the rating of the worst tourists was headed by the Germans, now this rating is headed by the Russians. Why do Russian-speaking tourists behave as if they are at home? Foreigners complain about the nightmarish "light tourist" manners, especially at the table. Women dress provocatively, and men can show up in a tracksuit and waste money left and right. Food is generally a separate conversation. The Russians' habit of taking out food defies rational explanation. The desire to stand out and show their own opinion makes our travelers behave in a foreign country unfriendly and rude. Our people love to have a rest on a grand scale and sometimes not without the participation of strong drinks. Under the influence of alcohol, vacationers can commit rather indecent acts. Such behavior does not contribute to the enhancement of the country's image. When asked why Russians behave indecently abroad, someone will say - such a mentality or a lack of culture and education. Maybe there is some truth in this. Here, without a massive change in consciousness, the situation cannot be changed. Russian tourists want to feel like the masters of life and make the most of what is included, because they paid for it. Some of the blame for all the chaos that our people are doing abroad lies with the staff. On duty, they need to curry favor with dear guests. The feeling of complete impunity leads to the unbridledness of both women and men.
Cultural leisure: positive emotions and joy of the soul
Each country is unique and inimitable. Avoiding unnecessary fines and unpleasant situations will help simple rules of conduct that you need to learn before you find yourself in a foreign country, especially in Asia or Africa. The disrespect shown to the traditions and customs of foreign countries turns against the tourists themselves and spoils the impression of the local population from the guests. The adopted law on holding Russian tourists accountable for hooligan behavior abroad will help prevent many unpleasant incidents. Rest is, first of all, a change of impressions and communication with interesting people. Smiling can bring strangers closer together and set you up for positive communication. Therefore, a properly organized rest gives pleasure to the body and soul. Resting doesn't mean shopping, overeating, or shocking others. Gain strength, explore new tourist routes, learn about cultural and historical values: these are the goals that adventure seekers should pursue. Gone are the days when Russian tourists were not welcome abroad, but only tolerated because of the money. Today we can and are able to show high culture, as well as learn from others.
