Titanic Awards looking for world's cheapest tourists


Americans like to think they have an appalling reputation in the outside world. We all know a few people who won't set foot on a plane because they fear some anti-American loony is bound to strike them dead on some foreign street. But it may surprise you to know that there are other nationalities that foreign hotel managers dread more.

To assemble the upcoming book The Titanic Awards: Celebrating The Dubious Achievements of Travel, tourists of all stripes are being asked to vote on the World's Worst in a variety of categories. Although voting is still going on, a few of the categories are revealing some surprising results when it comes to Americans and money.
