The Top Ten

1 Canada Canada Canada is a country in North America that is next to the United States, and it's the 2nd largest country in the world (size is 9.985 million km²). This country has 10 provinces, and 3 territories. Canada became a dominion on July 1, 1867. Its 10 provinces are: Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec, Alberta, ...read more.

Canada's good because our economy doesn't really have any thing to do with war so that tax will be low and if you live in Alberta you don't have to pay PST. If you want to move you don't have to ask the government to move and our economy is now the most stable. If you ask me Canada is the land of the free and we don't worry about people blowing up planes. Canada doesn't own any nuke so people don't think of us as a threat but we are one of the most peaceful places on earth.

"Idiot America is land of the free"

Yeah, America is totally the land of the free. That is why you have your government is spying on you, the police force abusing their power, like that black man who got shot by police in Missouri, and you go to jail for saying bad things about your pathetic government. Yep, totally a place of freedom. Get a grip! Please stop with your arrogance. There are many more countries, like Canada, that are much more free than the police state known as the US.

It's safe, no war, it's beautiful and there is almost no criminals.
I know that 'cause I live here.

I think Canada is the best in terms of freedom, even though I've never been there... I can say these things because I know a lot of people migrating there... And their feed backs about Canada is great...

The best country ever nice landmarks good government but don’t compare Canada and the u.s.a

2 Australia Australia Australia, officially known as the Commonwealth of Australia, is a country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands. Australia has a very warm climate and is very dry. The country's official language is English.

Australia is really nice country. Australia is a very high developed country characterized by a very high rank of Human Development Index. This country is also strong in financial, and really multicultural where you can meet people around the world. The citizens are friendly and you can enjoy a freedom life. Australia has it's best city in the world, Melbourne which ranked as the most liveable city in the world. Climate diversity makes Australia become more unique where you can enjoy the tropical climate at the north of the country, desert at the west, and subtropical climate at the southeast of Australia.

If I was a poor man then Australia is the best place to be poor in as it has a great safety net, not too cold and a lot of opportunity to get off the canvas. If I was a rich man then Australia is a great place to live: Good security, Good Weather, Good Beaches, Good Food and Good Business opportunities. Canada- Weather is lousy, US- No safety net, so it has low security, Europe - Too much Government interference and weather is lousy. New Zealand is similar to Australia to except the place has too many New Zealanders. Thailand is Up there with Good places to live if you had a few bucks. At the end of the day it is up to what you want : for me it is about : Good Air, Good Food, Good Water, Good Weather, Good scenery and the economic freedom and health to enjoy them.

Easily the coolest country on earth. One of the only truely free countries. You can do what you want, whenever you want. As long as you don't get caught of course!

Australia is a economically great place live and also is extremely safe

That stereotype is so not true. Most people here are friendly and will help you if you need it. Other than the enormous amount of political correctness forced on us, we have the freedom to do just about anything as long as it's not abusively illegal. Everybody in the world takes great risks to come here---I live right on the Mexican border and thousands get through every day. We need jobs and a sane political system, neither Democrats nor Republicans. We need a president who puts American citizens' needs first before special interest groups or foreign nations. Regardless, I wouldn't live anywhere else.

Well said. America is the most friendly nation in the world. If you leave for awhile and come back, the friendliness will shock you. Going elsewhere in the world, some people are put off by the friendly nature of Americans. I think they see it as either shocking or fake, and thus don't like it.

If you have a dream, America is the place to make it happen. Don't believe the hype! America is beautiful and full of opportunity.

It all depends on what part of America you live in, what your skin color is, how you look, what your sexuality is, what your dreams are, etc.

It also depends on what you consider a positive. While we brag a lot about our entertainment, seriously look at our entertainment. We have given up part of our civilized achievements for the sake of reality T.V. fights and people with lack of talent. It is at a high state of shallowness.

A lot of your perception of America is going to be based on where you live and how much of America you've actually visited. I've been to places where I felt like a total outsider because people just stare but won't greet you. I've also been to places where they pay no attention to you.

Right now our biggest flaw is politics and religion. Each main party is ugly towards the other and though we talk about "fair" and "democracy" we laugh at third party candidates and discount them before debates ever begin. We have people ...more - Ljubljana

Stunning architecture, marvellous food, caring people, structured government and rules and it's a very organised country. The United States of America is a spectacular country with diverse things all around it. The only problem is that the crime rate can scare people away from this country. But most countys, cities and neighborhoods are safe and have police trooping around them 24/7. And, this is the place where dreams come true. Although many people don't have jobs and the people who do gain little money, most celebrities started their career in the U.S.A. and the people here are really caring and helpful. If you're locked out of your house, you can call 911 and they can gladly help you open it. And if you're walking down the road, people just say "Hi! " to you out of respect. That is true kindness. This is the place were you can see various musical performances, millions of game shows and celebrities on tours in real-life. And this is the center of food, especially when it come to ...more - davakoh

Wonderful country, peaceful,.kind people, famous food, healthcare...

So various landscapes, there are some villages which look to be villages of medieval tales.

France is like a dream, we had the chance to go to Tahiti, Moorea, Bora-Bora and Marquesas Islands. Besides the fact that these places are simply marvelous, splendid, is so amazing to know that it is part of France.

Here you have among the most beautiful coral reefs (UNESCO) and gorgeous beaches in the world.

France is so different, has a so rich culture and history and so peaceful areas to live in, it is the bucolic country.

And if you need you BBQ, no problems, here you can eat everything you want because you will also find cuisine from lots of other countries.

It is No 2 for McDonalds in the world after USA.

Swedes are very kind and are very environmentally conscious. Swedes have a high equality rate and are full of culture. Alfred Nobel, a swede, invented dynamite(not the song)and other swedes invented the zipper and the wrench.

Beautiful country. I lived in Sweden for now 6 years and I don't regret anything. I was from Norway before but Sweden is seriously the best place I've been to.

Freedom and love all over the country. That's the way of living.

I’m myseldning in Sweden bit It’s not so good as peppen say.

It has a very good velfare, scool and hospital are free (hospital to the year when you being 20).

The people are often kind and I’m feel (physically) safe.


But it’s really, really hard to get friends here, people have there friends, they haven’t the time too get more.

And if you aren’t “85-100% normal”, school will get really hard.

6 England England England, or the kingdom of England, is one of four countries located within the United Kingdom. It united with Scotland and Wales in 1707 as Great Britain, and later Ireland in 1801. English is the primary language of England and one of many official languages in the U.K

Very nice place to live but every journey/holiday takes forever to get to England, the last time I went there was brilliant.

I love England. Free healthcare. Democracy, (in America, they say we have "democracy", but we don't. Far from it actually). Education, education is WAY better in the UK. Children actually know something. Housing is cheaper(yes, houses are smaller). Cars are cheaper and get better MPG(again, cars are smaller). Shopping is cheaper, people can actually afford to eat healthy in the UK. People are friendly, and closely knit communities. Acceptance, they accept anyone of all differences. Same sex marriage is going to be legal soon, so I can get married, there instead of the US. And the monarch helps the country, in good times and bad, she is always there for us, and gives us something to be proud of. GOD SAVE THE QUEEN

Everyone in England, looks out for each-other and cares for anyone, who comes to the country as an immigrant.
Oh yeh, and we have free health care (like Canada).

Best country in the WORLD. I've been to all of them, in order of excellence; - England, Switzerland, USA, Canada, Australia.

England, and especially London, in UNBELIEVABLE in comparison. Best mix of famous people, rich people, millionaires, BILLIONAIRES, small businesses, large businesses, multinational businesses, cars, sports cars, art, history, culture, architecture, tech, people, industry, beaches, countryside (most beautiful countryside in the world by far), political scene, journalists (British papers like the Spectator etc are simply unmatched), sports (cricket, football, etc), proximity to interesting places in Europe, everything.

AND England has a Monarch! Bloody brilliant combo!

7 Norway Norway Norway, officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a sovereign and unitary monarchy whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula plus the island Jan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard.

Norway has one of the highest life satisfactions. Meaning the people in Norway are living in the happiest Country on Earth. The crime rate is moderately low, the environment is clean. The environment is magical and the people are happy. And they have potatoes.

I have visited this country several times. One of the best social security system in the world. People with disabilities living in a very good quality life. Clean environment with very hygienic food.

I've been to Norway several times, and it's the greatest country I know! People are so nice, the crime rate is low, but it has unusually high taxes, and everything is extremely expensive. I had to spend 25 bucks on a cup of normal black coffee. But it is a really awesome country!

10 New Zealand New Zealand

9/10 by far one of the most awesome countries to live in. It has so much. Theme parks, volcanoes, kind people, and so much more. C'on who wouldn't want to go see where lord of the rings, the hobbit and king kong was filmed swell as hundreds more. What can't yo do here? There's very little crime, no shortages of water, food, air :3. The best country...

Stunning, perfect, beautiful place, New Zealand has everything from peace and tranquility to snowcapped mountain peaks, ancient exotic flora and forna, wild and wonderful, golden calm beaches, brilliant star gazing, awesome towns/cities/untouched national parks, friendly caring people, unique culture and history, stunning food and wines and the coolest little capital in the world. There is something for everyone there. Way better that Australia and number 1 in the world for me!

I have thought about this a lot, and I concluded New Zealand is the best country to live in. It has one of the freest economies and presses in the world (unlike my home, the USA), It is neutral (unlike Canada and Iceland), would have the least amount of damage from a nuclear war (unlike Sweden and Switzerland which would suffer collateral damage from nuked countries like Norway and France). The country is beautiful (look up Milford Sound), wealthy and just overall probably the best place to live in the world.

Id say that the 15% tax is the worst thing about living here. I can't buy stuff for crap - Aey

Iceland should be number 1 Luke really! Iceland is such a beautiful country with very very kind people clean healthy no crime so it's the best country to live in I needs to be number 1 on the list

Great climate, great cities, historically significant, rather nice people, great geographical placement. Never been there, but from what I know about Spain it seems like the best country to live in.

I went to Spain last year, and I really LOVE IT! GREAT country, the people, the food, the culture, I really left a part of my heart there... Sniff

I reckon that Spain tops these countries because great food, medditerranian sea at your doorstep and if it gets to hot the flights to anywhere are super cheap.

I had no idea about the Irish people before the Uefa Euro 2012... But after that hilarious event... I realised that the irish are the most openminded and stunning people on earth... Simply the kindest... And dublin is just impressive! Ireland is really a great spot on earth to live in... Love you irish people!

People are nice and relaxed and beautiful country. Only bad thing is the wheather...

I live in Ireland, and can safely say its one of the best places to live, and I've travelled a lot! There's good culture, the people are friendly, has always been a neutral country, very peaceful and no enemies! Great standards of education, from indants to university, beautiful scenery, good climate, although rains a bit more than perhaps desired, land is very fertile and there is no shortage of sun eithear! Not to mention that there are great facilities all over the country, and it is our own country abd always has been we didn't steal it of natives, we are the natives! Great overall standard of living.

I was there about 20 yrs ago and I still remember vividly how great the Japanese. I can not forget all the beautiful places and the outstanding hospitality of this country. I highly recommend to each traveler to at least count in to visit Japan so they can experience the honesty and purity of the culture. The best way to educate kids the importance of family and descipline will go further on each individuals morals and lige being. I plan to go back and visit Japan before it is too late for me to travel, the number one country of Asia.

High Tech countries and very polite people.

I'M A JAPANESE I KNOW THAT THERE IS LESS ACCIDENTS HERE AND Japan's economy has been up and down for well over a decade now and considered to be in a stagflation state or in a period of very slow growth. When a major disaster occurs in a country that is experiencing economic flatness, the rebuilding effort calls for new investments and purchases which spur demand and also business. In light of this, foreign investor's (at least the smart ones) may look to buy Japanese companies' stocks and other Japanese financial instruments.

I love Finland. Now this is maybe because I am Finnish, but living in Finland had the best moments of my life. Some reasons I loved living there was that it was really green. Even if you lived in the middle of the capital, Helsinki, you wouldn't have to walk far to see the beautiful greenery. And also education and health care is free, that's also really good. And talking about education, it has the best education system. Now I lived in Finland only until grade 3 but the exams were only at the end of the year, and there was 1 exam. You rarely got bullied, because there were supportive and nice teachers, and usually people had a lot of friends, even that one Indian kid who spoke very little Finnish had like 20 friends. And also the city life was amazing. You could walk in town and feel like you would be at home everywhere you go. I don't know why but I just felt like this was where I should live forever walking trough the familiar streets of Helsinki. Also winters, YES THE COLD! I just ...more - LavenderSheep

The most equal country. You can be a human being there if you become them.

Oh there are many reason. Best country to live for pregnant moms, families and kids. Finland has a free health care and if you need treatment, you will get it. What about education? Oh free as well. And one of the best education systems out there. We have good gun control laws. There is no corruption. Government is chosen by people and they make decisions which will be for the best. Liberal country, for example equal marriage is now possible in Finland. Finland is more than safe country to live. There are so many other reasons too why Finland is the best country to live. The nature with lakes and forests is absolutely stunning.

I live in Brazil but travel abroad mostly to Europe and other South America countries.

I can for sure say that our food is the best in the world, a mix of italian, german, portuguese, african, native americans foods that makes it simply perfect.

We have great nature, rainforests, rivers, amazing beaches and a very nice climate. We have no international issues or war.

Only problems are government corruption, cost of living rising and violence in the big cities, in the smaller ones you can have a very high standard of living, mostly in south Brazil, considered a mini Europa like region in terms of climate (colder) and quality of life, I recommend the smaller citie in Rio Grande do Sul and Santa Catarina states, low crimes, high quality of life and great landscapes!

This county is a paradise with diverse food, culture, and people. There is no other better place to have a vacation.

A happy country with nice people and beautiful sights! Cheers from your Argentina!

Simply stunning. Travelled all over Europe and Austria is the most beautiful country I've seen and experienced. Cities are clean friendly, happy and gorgeous. People appreciate and value their living space. Great environment for families. Rural areas of Austria like Tirol and Pinzgau are incredible. Breathtaking scenery. Awesome skiing and even better in summer. Austria is better known for wonderful skiing in Winter but Summer is also a great time of the year to experience other mountain sports. If you like cities, Austria is perfect and if you prefer the countryside, look nowhere else! Overall: 9.8/10

Austria is a fantastic country with great nature and people. The living standard and safety is of the same high level as in Germany, but the people are partially more chilled and down to earth. It's a great for doing every outdoor activity you can imagine, and most of the cities have a beautiful historical old town.

Austria has the best living full city in the world Vienna. The best coffe and sachertorte in the world. If you don't won't do life in the best living full city you can change do the Mountains is a good difference because no country has so beautiful Mountains. Why did over 100.000.000 people come to Austria. Also Austria has no war and only 5% living below the poverty line. 4,2% are unemployed. 50% are upper class.

Italy is the worlds 7th largest economy is a nice country to live in, best food in the world, 2nd best healthcare in the world, best country to raise a child and is one of the most visited countries in the world it should be one of the first best countries

Italy is a great country with a lot of history on its shoulders. Many says it has the best food in the world; even though that is very subjective, Italian food summarizes the Italian culture: classy, creative and with a lot of love. Italians really love their food and life style. In fact, the most fascinating thing is how Italians are able to seize the day and get the best of their life. The sense of family, the appreciation for good food, history, art, music, fashion and wine, these are all ingredients that Italians use to conduct, in my view, what I think is one of the best life style on earth. It is great to admire how they express their culture on what they do, from the elegance of an Armani suit to the great manufacture of a Ferrari.

There is no question about the Italian culture, people and ingenuity... After all what other nationality had contributed to the USA as much as the Italians. Italians with their work ethics and family values cannot be denied... A very clever race of people. As for the comments about Italians being racists about black people, when I'm in Italy I do see Italian men with black women... and although I do not see very many black men with Italian women, that's not to say that their racists, Italian women at large prefer Italian men... And that's that! Ciao

Sri Lanka is a very grateful country. There have so many nice places to enjoy. I think Village is better than city. Very clear breath, clear water, good climate, and you can live with your freedom. Foods are also best. I mean Sri Lankan own Foods. Those have no any side effects, absolutely nutrition. There have free hospitality, free education, low cost to live. This country offers better life style, high level of happiness, education, jobs and better work life balance. It has established a solid economy, and fairly safe disaster risk management systems. So what else you can expect from a country to make into the list of best countries to live in?

It is way better than Mexico for sure. Sri Lanka has a diminutive amount of crime while in the other hand. Mexico is beating the tops in crime. Sri Lanka is better. Sri Lanka is really great, the weather, the pets. They have one of the cutest cats ever!

It is super good, I agree with the person. I think Sri Lanka should be crowned king. It is beautiful, no other country can astound this place!

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL AND BEST COUNTRY TO LIVE IN THE WORLD.IT INCLUDES WATERFALLS,MOUNTAINS ETC.SRI LANKANS ARE THE MOST HOSPITABLE NATION IN THE WORLD SINCE ANCIENT TIMES.

29 Hong Kong Hong Kong Hong Kong, officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China, is an autonomous territory on the eastern side of the Pearl River estuary in East Asia.

Hong Kong is full of tourisms and it varies in food which are from different cultures or country. It is a perfect place for relaxation and shopping.

Hong Kong isn't a country, it's in China. Anyway it's nice.

Hong kong is where my mom and I was born in. If the people trying to blaming our country I will kill You.

It is literally sooo cool with all those high tech things and stuff like that they also have amazing places to visit.

Turkey is bordered by eight countries with Greece and Bulgaria to the northwest; Georgia to the northeast; Armenia, ...read more.

First of all Turkey is located in Eurasia. It is not a middle-Eastern country nor European. İt has also territory on continetn of Europe. The Turkish culture is not Eastern or western. If you have never been in that country seeing it would be so surprising. Turkish people are Turkish not Arabian. Turkey is a Muslim country but it lives Islam in a very different way from any other Muslim country. It is the most free country in Middle East. It is safe. Climate is mostly meditterranean. The history is fascinating and thanks to Ottoman Empire which had territories on three different continents the cultural diversity of Turkey is surprising. As an eruopean citizen who lived almost 10 years in Turkey, I can say that it is a safe, free and beautiful place which west and east meet. Media shows it like an arabic country but the fact is so different. It is one of the best places to live on the planet I think. ıt has amazing beaches on south coast, amazing forests and tea gardens on north ...more

I lived in Turkey for 1-2 years and I have to say I'm very suprised. It is a state that is not in EU but it feels like it actually is in the EU. People here are friendly and most of them speaks English. Life standarts, places to see, foods to experience. And those brunette girls.. Can a man ask for more?

Turkey is an idiotic country of uncaring reactive children. Turks are self-centered users who are willing to say any untruth to get what they want.

Worst country to live in which idiot put this here?! So many gang wars and fights.

Nice waether, the people are friendly, foods are yummy and a lot of beautiful places.

I'm Thai proud to be all Thai culture food, beautiful country, Thai people friendly and smile. Muaythai, rum-thai. Many good thing in Thailand

Some things good, some things bad, nothing perfect. A quote from a Thai friend of mine. The Thai people are friendly.

Thailand has lots of honorific titles to earn about, "Land of the Thousand Smiles", "True home for Asia's Next Top Model Winners (like Jessica A. & Tawan)", Music Capital of Asia (due to best singers & bands who integrates between traditional folk rock & modern pop) & Home to the most precious temples & hidden natural secrets that are visited by multitudes from far-flung areas.

Great Place, Lovely weather... People are great. There are amazing places to visit. Huge country with brilliant tourist potential. Although the rulers of the country really need to get their act together to step up security and invite tourist back to South Africa.

Crime, corrupt government, lack of integrity, no values and a tribal dictatorship mentality. The only way to salvage what little this country has left is to remove the existing governing body.

I am proudly South African, I love my country, the person that said we are number 1 in crime is wrong, we are actually not even in the top 10, USA is so don't go around acting so arrogant. I will quote George Bush's wise words,"Africa is a troubled country".

So many kind black people to greet you could not be more happy you have got to live there

34 Scotland Scotland Scotland is a country that is part of the United Kingdom and covers the northern third of the island of Great Britain.

I'm from Canada, Scotland is Part of my heritage, love Scotland, great music great people, one of the friendliest and kindest places on earth, a lot of Scots in Canada, especially in the Atlantic Islands of Canada, love Simple Minds, Rod Stewart, Sheena Easton, Texas, Hipsway... Etc etc etc

Nothing is more beautiful than the Scottish Highlands, with their ancient feel and thin air. Wonderful.

People sometimes judge us by our accents or others sometimes don't like the scots, but that's ok but I'm here to let u know that if u take a holiday into Scotland I guarantee you will be treated with good respect. People are also stereotypical about us. You do see a man playing the bagpipes in a kilt now and then in Glasgow, Edinburgh or Aberdeen, so that's awesome. Our country has one of the greatest sites to see, we also have to best water in the world located in Paisley, we also have the best steak in Europe know as the Aberdeen Angus.
Thanks for taking time to read my comment about Scotland! Go and check out Ireland or Wales!

35 Chile Chile Chile, officially the Republic of Chile, is a South American country occupying a long, narrow strip of land between the Andes to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west.

Why all the haters. Chile is a beautiful country, I've lived there since I was born and I've been to many,many countries. still Chile is great. don't talk badly about it if you haven't been there. the mountains, sea, fields, ice, forest even the desert! it really is beautiful.

You know it's really offensive to comment 'ugly people', I'm really offended right now. where did you get the idea that Chileans were ugly. it's really mean and I'm really sad because basically you're saying I'm ugly! if you think so anyway keep it to yourself, it's really hurtful to say things like that. I know Chile isn't the best country but, you have not seen the patagonian Icelands, the moonlight shining on the desert, the forests, green and rich with wildlife. I know santiago is polluted but not all of Chile is.

Chile is the safest Country in South America, and one of the most Beautiful.

I'm an american living in Chile and I love this country!

The best beer and food of the world. High developed country.

Good food, a lot of things to do.

When you travel through Romania, it's like traveling through several countries at once. The landscape can change so fast, that one minute you see a mountain and the next you can see a lake or a plain. Agriculture, especially bio-agriculture, is one of the country's most important income sources.

Tourism is also a great way to discover Romania. Tourists can listen to the call of nature and return to their roots while enjoying their holiday here.

Romanian people are pretty much good at everything, and if they're not, they'll try until they succeed.
Traditions are sacred, especially in historical areas of Maramures and Bucovina.

Of course, Romania is the country of DRACULA, therefore Halloween manages to gather many tourists, especially Americans.

Living here is affordable if you have your own business. Otherwise, you have to work pretty hard to make ends meet and afford other expenses than basic needs. State jobs are poorly paid compared to private sector ...more

Romania has a upper-middle income economy. And is a member of the UE (European Union). Here, tourism focuses on the country's beautiful natural landscapes and its rich history. We also have a very strong military and a very low crime rate compared to the United States and many other European countries..

It is very cheap and beautiful. You can easily live with less than 400 euros a mounth (including rent). You have mountains, beaches, plains, castles, cities with various cultural themes, kind people, best clubs in the world, breathtanking environment,. In one word is awesome!

The reason I like Romania is because they have there own ethnic group there as the large majority not like sell out UK.

It has nice weather and nice people but the problems that Mexico is their stupid, corrupt government. There a reason why most Mexicans want to impeach everyone in the government.

You find everything in Russia - breathtaking nature, exquisite architecture, fun night life, numerous music concerts, a lot of culture, nice people... Saying nothing about the feeling of freedom - you can really be yourself here, express yourself exactly the way you like! There is space for different opinions that I have never seen in any other country, very good free healthcare and good school education. Everything works - things get fixed, you get the answer from the officials, you get what you asked for. And great opportunities for business! So instead of believing all the anti-Russian propaganda, go there and see yourself!

The food is fresh, oil is cheap, neighbors are friendly. Cities are very green, some are not really polluted...

Despite western propaganda saying bad things about Russia and accusing their government of doing terrible things, Russia is actually a pretty chill place, literally, and in some aspects, people have more freedom than in some democracies.

I like russia's ppsh smg

The best place ever to live in. When I watch tourism shows and when they go to Taiwan, I will be super excited and I will always watch it. Taiwan also has good comedy shows, which I watch every weekend. I hope I can visit Taiwan soon! - CrazeBoutMayday

Taiwan has a long history and an amazing culture, the people are friendly, the food is spectacular, is it well developed, the cities are big and filled with opportunities, and the country side is like a mix of tropical island, with the ocean and the mountains.

48 Vietnam Vietnam Vietnam, officially the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, is the easternmost country on the Indochina Peninsula in Southeast Asia.

People always think bad about Vietnam, but Vietnam is not like you think, Vietnam is gradually going up development, but there are some who have not been good personality but that's just the tip of the iceberg alone, the people of Vietnam, the development of energetic love life of freedom and peace. Especially that Chinese people always talk bad about the people of Vietnam, because they just lie and slander only, they invaded the territory of Vietnam, they have our bad games before, the Central Nations are undermining Vietnam and no one else, would signify a person can make China more friendly looking little about our human Vietnam. Thanks for reading

Don't say bad things about Vietnam! It's a great country! And no, people don't arrest each other who talk about freedom. Vietnam is developing, I wouldn't be surprise if she makes it to top 10 some day =))

At the beginning, I actually thought that Vietnam is not well developed country and mostly people are not well educated too. But it's not even close. Mostly everyone in Vietnam are educated and the country is developing every day. Everyone were so friendly to the foreigner ( I can see Vietnamese people and the foreigner talking so happily everywhere I go ). I recommend you guys come to Vietnam at least once

No war, no terror, that is enough for me to live in.

Though crime is high and the government doesn't invest well in the country the vibe is still there. The culture is so down to earth and more or less everyone is happy and stress free. The food is some of the best in the world, I'd even say the best in Caribbean. The beaches are gorgeous and the weather is hot, there's also a lot to do. If you're financially stable it's the place to be!

Land of wood and water, rich in scenery beautiful beaches sensational place for honey moon and more... Adventurous land

Land of paradise, fun loving & kind people, beautiful beaches & scenery wonerfull culture & many more

This is my home country. The best place in the world filled with good vibes most of the time.
