Oh my goodness. Things must be really bad if
Spain needs Russian tourists to help its economy out. LOL! I would have to assume then that they will be treating Russian tourists with hospitality instead of sniping at them and making rude remarks like the ones we see here on topics. LOL!!!!

I am not surprised from this as a lot of the russian tourists are quite disappointed from the services in Greece, Bulgaria, and other countries in that region which used to be preferred destination for their summer vacations.

Spain is oversubscribed as a holidays destination. There is just no room to move and the service is deplorable. I wouldn't recommend it anymore, although I went there 8 consecutive years there in the 80s. Price wise, it's still competitive though.

Spain is perhaps suffering less than Greece in the recent economic disaster of the "PIGS".

There are some fantastic destinations in Spain outside the tourist traps. Even the Canaries have some decent and historic areas. You just have to know where to go.

Greece is a fantastic destination. It's not all nice and shiny, but that is part of its character and charm. Fresh Calamari & greek salad on the beach with a beer... Of course again you have to know where to go and avoid the nose to toe deck chair beaches.

These places are ok in the Autumn or Winter, but of course the best place when there is a decent Summer is the UK. Amazing scenery, cream teas in the sun, lunch in a pub gaden and miles of beautiful beaches with hardly a g-string clad tourist in sight.

Depends where you go. There are some nice ones in Cornwall, don't like the shingle beaches on the South coast though.

It's clear you haven't been to beaches in :

a) Wales
b) Cornwall
c) dorset
d) Isle of Wight

There is some stunning coastline & amazing scenery in the UK. But probably a good thing that the tourists don't know and only manage to make it to Margate or southend :)

depends where you go of course, but most beaches I've been to in the UK are not shingle, but white sand. The south coast is more or less the exception. Although there is one advantage of shingle - it's easier to dry off without sand sticking to you. I seem to remember places like Nice in the South of France also have shingle, but it doesn't detract from the charm.

Pembrokeshire has exceptionally delightful beaches, although not many from abroad make it that far. The whole Welsh coast is a great place to relax and unwind while surrounded by some of the best views in the World. Plus it is all totally unspoilt by commercial tourism and waffle sellers. Someone even tried to recreate the med in Portmeirion :

Of course there are other fantastic places to see inland such as the Lakes and Peaks. Here is a great pic of buttermere on of my fave places :

The great thing about it is that accommodation in many b&bs these days tends to be first class, the food is great and everyone speaks the language. Oh and no need for any foreign currency.

Parts of the Yorkshire coastline are nice, Lancashire coast not so good, I don't think that many foreigners make it to Blackpool though:) North Wales coastline is also quite nice. Some of the smaller historic cities such as York, Chester and Bath are worth visiting.

There's no need to be so rude. Check your own grammar before criticising others. Where are you from? As though I can't guess.

I must say that I've never made it to Blackpool. But I do love the different culture "oop north". I love the gritty, no fuss, down to earth attitudes. Even the rain has character (seeing as it falls in horizontal sheets).

I haven't been to Lancs for a while but I do remember once being in a cafe where you could have black pudding and tripe lol. Chips and tea both taste much better in that neck of the woods. I've not been to Yorks coast but have heard good things about the coast all the way up to Tyne & Wear. I believe Skegness has the enormous white sand beach and donkey rides.

North Wales and Lleyn has some of my fave countryside and beaches. I've heard good things about Chester, but have only driven past it. Isn't that where Hollyoaks is set?

York when I last visited had gone a bit downhill. They had introduced some nightmare of a one-way system which made it very hard to navigate. I tend to avoid big cities, I love the little villages and nooks and crannies you come across, with cosy pubs and tearooms. I haven't seen any Russian tourists on my travels there so they must all be in Spain.

Really? OK for someone who wants to catch pneumonia! UK beaches are far too cold. Accommodations in Britain are far too expensive to be competitive.
The holidays industry in UK is really left behind compared to Southern Europe.

The only problem with Spain is the British tourists. From my experience they are much like Americans, loud obnoxious and expect everyone to speak English *rolls eyes*

Out of the countries in Europe I've been to my favorite definitely is Germany! France has better attractions, but Germans are so welcoming! I've never felt as at ease and accepted as when I was in Frankfurt. Germans are kind like people in Utah, they are so tolerant and hospitable. In France, if you don't speak French it kind of sucks and they for whatever reason aren't fans of people from the US:/

Blackpools ok actually, it's a bit brash and you get a few chavs, but it's popular with day trippers and the illuminations attract a lot of people.
I've lived in the North so I know all about the rain, LOL. Quite a contrast to where I am now living on the South Coast, spring starts several weeks earlier down here.
I've eaten black pudding and it's not too bad, I'd never eat tripe though.
The Northumberland coastline is supposed to be nice, a bit remote though.
I think that you're right about Hollyoaks, but I'm not certain, because I don't watch it.
You don't need Russians on your travels, you've got enough of them in London, I often hear Russian being spoken on the streets where I live also, an English village is probably the one place that you can avoid them, LOL.
