    Singaporeans may appear to be savvy and gracious travellers but surprise, surprise, they have a tendency to nick items from hotel rooms.

    According to a global poll of almost 5,000 travellers on the nationalities most likely to steal from hotel rooms conducted by, Singaporeans came in second place. In first and third places were the Argentinians and Spaniards respectively.

    Around 71% of Singaporeans surveyed said they have taken something from hotel rooms — not including toiletries — versus 73% from Argentina and 70% from Spain. Other nationalities in top 10 include people from Germany (68%), Japan (56%) and USA (53%).

    So what exactly did they steal? The 5 most commonly stolen items were:

    1. towels
    2. hangers
    3. stationery
    4. cups
    5. slippers
