Newsline: Saudi Arabian Embassy in London warns tourists against flouting rules

The Saudi Embassy in London issued 13 tweets that warned tourists from the Kingdom not to misbehave in public or violate local rules and regulations. At the beginning of September, the UK government will implement a law against loud music from cars which are cruising the streets of London. The move come as part of a number of decisions that aim to deal with the problems of tourists in London. Loud music and noise from cars owned by Gulf tourists have been disturbing residents in London neighborhoods, and have prompted the British government to issue a law that penalizes owners of these vehicles. These developments in Britain in response to the behavior of Gulf tourists coincide with recent developments in the Czech Republic and Austria where local governments and civilian demonstrations have protested about what is seen as the negative behavior of Gulf tourists. Some Saudi tourists have never traveled abroad before and thus continue to behave as if they were still in the Gulf states.
