Who doesn’t love the holiday season if you’re an American, huh? There’s nothing like a good vacation now and then. Being able to travel can be a dream, but if you’re not careful, it can become a nightmare. Yes, America is probably one of the most traveling nations in the world, especially around the holidays. Whether it’s a nice little cruise trip, a beautiful train ride through the countryside or even a journey to the seven wonders of the world, Americans love to get in their travel time.
However, every holiday destination that glitters ain’t gold, especially dealing with loud, obnoxious Americans. So, let’s keep this in mind. If you’re thinking of getting your holiday groove on somewhere new this year, these are the some of the places on the planet you will want to evade if you are looking for some peace and quiet.
The top 20 holiday destinations in the world for a break have been revealed. But be careful; if you’re trying to get away from the hustle and bustle and avoid your fellow Americans for some relaxation, these destinations are definitely ones to avoid at all costs.
20. Paris, France
Are you thinking about spending your holiday in Paris? The City of Light brings in millions of visitors every year with its memorable atmosphere. However, a lot of these visitors are Americans. Apparently, the divine cooking and massive art collections merit some of the credit too. But, are you really going to be able to enjoy them with crowds of loud Americans that attend the tours?
Let’s not get it twisted, you would love being able to bask in the mild River Seine strolls through the city, bordered by grand exhibition halls, centuries-old churches, and blocks of Neoclassic and Rococo design buildings, further heightened by delightful trees and shining street lamps. The truth is though, you might not enjoy the scenery like you want to, especially with the certain hang out spots that draw in noisy Americans.
19. Bora Bora, French Polynesia
The small island of Bora Bora that is no more than 6 miles long and over 2 miles wide is run over with beauty. If you are planning to make this your holiday destination, then you must know that it is a magnet for American travelers.
You’ll be able to view the site of the dormant volcanos which rise at its middle and spread out into luxurious rainforest before dropping into an aquamarine inlet.
18. Great Barrier Reef, Australia
The Great Barrier Reef stands as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. It holds a spot on most American explorers’ bucket lists. This beautiful area hugs the east shore of Queensland, Australia. However, if this is a place that you want to make your holiday destination, you might want to pump the brakes. Since this is one of America’s favorite holiday spots, you may be running into noisy and loud fellow citizens that might put a damper on your vacation.
Wherever you make the decision to hang your hat, it would not be unfair to say that the Great Barrier Reef is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. However, if you want to avoid Americans, this is not the place to go.
17. Tokyo, Japan
“Lively” is the best word to describe Tokyo. Wild about its anime, Japan’s extra-large city is continually energetic with drive— cars zoom along streets, feet clack down the pavement, subway trains rumble below ground, and tons of loud annoying Americans make their presence known.
Yes, they are there. Tokyo draws many Americans every year during the holidays. And the city’s bright lights and loud signs are not enough to drown them out. This is a city that suckles on progress and motion. There is no doubt that the super city will surely make it worth your while. However, if you are looking for a place free of annoying Americans for your holiday destination, Tokyo is not the place.
16. Florence, Italy
This tiny city, puckered among the Tuscan mountains, hurls a long shadow throughout history. The powerful Medici family and inspired artists like Brunelleschi and Michelangelo come from here.
However, it’s a slew of Americans that adore Florence and spend many holiday vacations there. In fact, there’s hardly a spot where you won’t bump into one. The city is known for drawing in tons of young American college students which you might find annoying and inexplicable, particularly if you are looking for some peace and quiet. You likewise visit Florence for its beautiful twilights, its Italian cuisine and its matchless romantic attraction, not its breeding ground for the loud and obnoxious.
15. Cusco, Peru
Cusco, recognized as the archaeological headquarters of the Americas, is birthplace to a storied history that involved the rise and fall of the Inca Kingdom. This is followed by the raid of Spanish conquerors in the early 1500s. Today, leftovers of both periods along with American travelers share the thin city streets.
This is not the place to go if you want to escape obnoxious Americans. A lot of them flock to these ancient ruins along with their repellant behaviors which could ruin your family outing. It just takes a single day to be charmed by this key Peruvian city and all its phenomena, but at the end of the day because of the influx of obnoxious Americans in one place, it might not be your favorite destination.
14. London, England
The English writer Samuel Johnson excellently alleged, “You discover no man, whatsoever intelligent, who is willing to leave London.” He could not have been farther from the truth. Many Americans not only make this their holiday spot, but also their home. If there was ever a place to avoid annoying obnoxious Americans, London is the spot.
Being in London is nothing short of revitalizing, and travelers discover that one visit isn’t enough to experience the whole thing this two-millennia-old metropolitan offers. However, you probably won’t be able to enjoy all of that due to the run-ins with those intolerable Americans you choose to avoid.
13. Rome, Italy
The city of seven hills, Rome, is relished a mythological start. Remus and Romulus — twin brothers who were fathered by a war god and nurtured by a she-wolf— discovered the Eternal City. However, they aren’t the only ones that discovered the fabulous city throughout the years.
It appears that Rome is a magnet for obnoxious annoying Americans that flock there year-round for their holiday destination. And even while historians are a little cynical about this impressive entry into the world, most travelers are confident that there is something enchanting about Rome, included American tourist.
12. Nassau, Bahamas
The Bahamas appeals to millions of U.S. visitors who flock to its eventful capital every year with photograph-postcard assurances of lovely coastlines and idle beach resorts. Of course, out of those millions you have quite a few annoying Americans that make their way to the island every year.
The realism—a working capital, filled with noisy American cruise ship day-trippers and shorelines that are sometimes less than immaculate —is a little unusual. Nevertheless, the city still has its historic gems, and the real bliss is just a yacht ride away.
However, due to the crowds of infuriating Americans that might stand in your way, you might want to look for another island for your holiday destination.
11. Maui, Hawaii
Maui is not as big as the Great Isle, nor is it as minute as Lanai, as full of action as Oahu or as noiseless as Kauai. However, this island is enticing for those annoying obnoxious Americans that want to spend all day at the beach. For lots of Hawaii vacationists, Maui is just right — offering a taste of about all the Aloha State should offer, from imposing nature to fascinating culture and history.
10. Cape Town, South Africa
Yes, Cape Town has made the list of destinations you might want to avoid. Yes, it is sporty, fashionable, spectacular and friendly… If Cape Town was an individual, it would be that Hollywood rising young star we all covertly desire. However, it is also a city that has a knack for attracting loud, obnoxious Americans.
The Mother City is different than any other journey’s end in Africa. Cape Town stands as an impressive city juxtaposed with one of the world’s most magnificent natural sceneries.
If you can enjoy the backdrop and deal with loads of American tourists at the same time, then more power to you. If not, then you might want to make other holiday plans.
9. Barcelona, Spain
This is not the city that you would think pulls a lot of Americans in, but it does. Barcelona embraces both the genuinely historic and the passionately bizarre. The city’s loads of consecrated cathedrals and churches makes it a hot tourist destination. This city by the sea appears to interest all kinds: the adventurer, the culture vulture, the couple, the backpacker and the family, not to mention there’s a tremendous assortment of things you can do. You might like to stay for a few days, but odds are you’ll need an entire week to sightsee, especially if you are trying to evade those loud obnoxious Americans.
8. Sydney, Australia
Welcome to the land down under. Strangely, this is a magnet for a lot of American tourists during the holidays. There are loads of Americans flocking Sydney, one of Australia’s largest cities, that you will have a hard time avoiding on your vacation.
Sydney is both a flourishing capital and an easy-going beachside town that claims some of the Southern Hemisphere’s best surf, activities and landmarks. If you’re looking to watch a show at the iconic Opera House, you might not be able to enjoy it with loud, obnoxious Americans talking during the show. With that being said, Sydney is a beautiful place to visit minus the minor disturbances.
7. Montego Bay, Jamaica
The all-inclusive resorts at Montego Bay make Jamaica one of the uppermost Caribbean holiday destinations for U.S. tourists. Relaxing on the coastline is the order of the day, and many travelers don’t venture far. However, if you want to escape that loud, obnoxious American, Montego Bay might not work for you.
Doctor’s Cave Seashore is the most popular beach in Montego Bay. It is also is a place where a lot of Americans hang out with loud parties and get togethers. You’ll enjoy the scenery but you might not care for the extra company of your fellow annoying American comrades.
6. Toronto, Canada
Are you interested in spending your holiday vacation in Toronto? The contemporary city overlaps the shore of Lake Ontario with its downtown metropolis full of multi-story building and the pointy CN Tower. It is also the fifth main city in North America, the varied population generates a lively cultural scene with many sights to see and places to visit.
However, this city attracts those loud annoying Americans every year as well from just over the border. Though it is a beautiful city, you might get a little bored hanging around your fellow American citizens who are known to be brash by Canadian standards. With that said, this is one of the destinations you might want to avoid.
5. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Why would anybody want to avoid Rio de Janeiro? Well, technically they wouldn’t. However, if you’re an American that wants to enjoy their vacation and not have to worry about running into your fellow countrymen, you might want to consider other options.
It can get disorderly late at night in Rio de Janeiro, particularly on weekends, when everyone and their cousins mobs the streets for an itinerant bar crawl with drinks in their hand. This might be where you’ll find the flamboyant obnoxious behavior that you’d rather not be a part of. If you are worried about running into this, strike Rio de Janeiro off of your list
4. Cancun, Mexico
This might not be on the top of your list, due to the numerous American tourists that travel here multiple times during holiday season. In fact, Cancun remains the No. 1 top destination for U.S. travel out of the country; cheers to inexpensive trips from the States, 14 miles of beaches, and festival-chic entertainment that converts the Z-formed island off the Yucatan Peninsula into a 24-hour party zone for American college students, especially during Spring Break season.
3. Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
Guess what? The cat is out of the bag on Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. Once a well-liked beach destination for Europeans, the beach town is now on the American holiday locator as a low-cost utopia. The beauty about the whole thing is that it is with a reasonable distance for most Americans. After all, it’s only a two-hour trip from Miami.
However, tons of Americans like to hang out here in this beautiful country. At times, the loud obnoxious Americans stick out too much and don’t leave. These are the ones you might run into if you pick this as your destination.
2. Cairo, Egypt
You think you won’t find loud, obnoxious Americans in Cairo? Think again because they are consistent visitors. The noisy streets, the desert heat, and the pure size of Cairo will leave even the most flexible traveler with a grave situation of culture shock and a little unpleasant attitude. Of course, if you are looking to enjoy your holiday, then it’s doubtful that you will want to be around that conduct.
The majority American visitors flock to Egypt’s capital to sightsee the phenomena of the ancient world, trailing the paths of the pharaohs. However, you don’t won’t find much peace and quiet here with all the North American tourists that floor the city. You’ll probably want to sit this one out.
1. San Juan, Puerto Rico
Of course, it’s U.S. land. Nevertheless, Puerto Rico has the right to feel like they’re a world apart. The easy-going impression of San Juan with its thin stone streets and light-colored communities will make any tourist feel at home, particularly after spending the evening in Old San Juan. However, many know this is a huge partying scene for some Americans.
At times some can get a little drunk and turn into that typical obnoxious American that nobody wants to be around. They like to hang out where the young and old have a drink or two, play music and dance salsa until the early hours of the morning.
