Is it still necessary to say that?

What have special effects to do with partying?

Britain has cool rainy weather nearly all year round. Ibiza offers the weather and the beach atmosphere you can't find in Britain for obvious reasons.

True partiers, just like in Canada, know where the after hour bars are...

I can confirm that Brits party hard. And all the Americans I ever partied with were lightweights.

For their answer to this question I suggest you go to any British town on a Friday and Saturday night, most women between the ages of 16 and 30 will be staggering around p*ssed in their stilletoes and wearing practically nothing (even if it is January) while most blokes under 30 will be puking and fighting, is this partying? I'm not so sure but Ive never come across anywhere else quite like a British town/city unless you count the holiday Costa's that are full of.......British! Young British women have a reputation of being a bit 'lose' on the continent, I think the reality is that they just like to have a good time, if you ever find yourself in the company of a group of more than 3 British women if nothing else your in for a good laugh!

I don't think any party more than the other, but all the anglo countries take way to many drugs and alchohol, it's the same in UK, USA, CANADA, AUSTRALIA, NEW ZEALAND

Yeah--I've read of complaints in Spain about the rowdy British partiers in Barcelona as well. The Brits are more of global partiers, whereas Americans think South Beach is as far and as wild as it gets. American partier types don't get out of the country much.

Nope, I'd say quite the opposite probably.

That has not been my personal experience with British people. In fact, quite the opposite.
