The ten best destinations to escape the British crowds this summer
Tuesday 28 July 2009
While some people find comfort in being amongst their own kind whilst on holiday, if you really want to experience the genuine food, culture and customs of the country you are visiting, you'll need to look beyond the British enclaves.
More than 16 million Brits visit Spain every year, 15 million visit France and three million visit Italy. It’s therefore little wonder that if you holiday in these countries, you’ll often be rubbing sunburnt shoulders with your fellow compatriots.
You don’t have to travel far to escape Little Britain. There are concealed countries and secret cities just two hours flight from the UK, so why not try one of Skyscanner’s recommended ‘Low-Brit’ destinations this summer?
