Was thinking of going to Goa this year as a Birthday treat. Came onto this forum to find out general info. "The Russians" thread and number of responses caught my eye, whilst thinking OH NO - not in Goa. I am also a seasoned traveller as are many of my friends and we would have to agree with the majority of people on this topic. They are loud, rude, arrogant and intimidating. I have witnessed in one case quite severe violence 2 years ago where 3 Russian men attacked one of the entertainments team because they had been refused more Vodka. As for Brits, we are no angels where the booze is concerned but I have never seen families with 40 something men behave so badly. I would avoid a resort that has Russians in like the plague.
