'Huge pat on back to Glasgow people'

By Nicola Hyde
OVERSEAS tourists have rated Glasgow's friendly people as the most enjoyable aspect of their trip to the city.
The 2007 Glasgow Visitor Survey also found that 91 per cent of domestic and foreign visitors had been to at least one attraction, with 71 per cent of those having visited a museum and 61 per cent visiting an art gallery.
Spokesman Lynn Jones said: 'The results of this study are a huge pat on the back to the people of Glasgow, particularly those who come into contact with overseas tourists. Their friendly attitude is encouraging visitors to make the most of their time in the city, and, in the case of a large majority, come back for another visit."
