You can't speak of experience because you have never been in France.

But wait you also said I have never met any french people.

Its okay keep living in denial, you don't have to believe me but readers will believe the very many people on this thread that have talked about how bad the French are.

I was never eager to visit France. Mainly because of all these prejudices you hear about rude and racist people there, who are unwilling/unable to speak something different than French. But a previous Bf just "kidnapped" me and took me to Paris. I didn't meet one single rude person there. Everybody was so nice.

Of course it helped a lot that my Bf was Belgian and spoke French fluently, but as soon as they recognized that I had some trouble understanding, they switched to English.

The only a little negative thing were flirty guys on the street. They didn't care at all that I was with my Fiancé. Almost as "bad" as in Italy.

To answer the question:

1. German/Skandinavian
2. Caucasian
3. NZ, Israel, GB, Italy, Austria, Greece, Thailand, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Turkey
4. Switzerland, Albania, Poland, China, Tunesia

I think experience varies based on gender. Lets say a good looking Latina goes to France, she will be swarmed by male attention and treated well. A good looking Latino guy goes to France, he will receive poor treatment because the men there see him as a threat.

1. What is your nationality
American
2. What is your ethnicity/heritage?
I am of Salvadorean Descent.
3. Which countries have made you feel welcome and treated you well? Thailand, Cambodia, Canada, Mexico, El Salvador, Italy, Germany, The Netherlands, Czech Republic, England, France, Japan, Belgium
4. Which countries have treated you poorly? Austria, Italy (Northern)

France surprise me in many ways and found the people to be extremely friendly and helpful.
I found people in Austria to be unhelpful when it came for their assistance and didn't feel welcome at all.
People in Northern Italy were rude and very snotty. Felt like I was a outsider in that region.

Japan felt like some people were not welcoming to anyone that had darker skins (which I kinda do) but I felt most of the people there were very polite, friendly, and helpful whenever I was lost.
Thailand and Cambodia are my favorite one because everyone that I met were helpful, friendly, and seem to love to engage in conversation which made it easier to get to know the locals.

I've been to France many times and I never had any problems. The people in Lille were the friendliest of any place I've ever been too. Kind, patient, eager to help. If you go to France expecting to be treated poorly, maybe that is all you will see.

Im argentinian.


Nicest: definitively people from The Netherlands! I love them. Also, southern italians were super nice and welcoming, but Romans were super rude.
Rudest: the people in the Atlanta (USA) airport made me and my friend go through hell when we were 18. But people in Minneapolis were nice, and in general in other parts of USA were nice. Some French people was super rude, and others were very nice.


All in all, the nicest are the dutch.
Rudest? Atlanta airport people.

No we're mean, Minneapolis is worse than Atlanta airport.
Stay away from Minneapolis.
