Best Countries to Visit

The Top Ten

1 United States The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the ...read more.

Coming from an American born citizen from Indian immigrants, I'd say the US isn't the best place in the world to live, but the probably the best to visit, and that's the discussion right now. First of all, we've got anything you want to see. For visiting beautiful cities, seeing skyscrapers, there's New York City, Chicago, Philadelphia, Miami, and more. For beaches, you've got Hawaii, California, New Jersey, Florida, South Carolina, and anywhere down the line. If you're interested in US history then take a tour to Boston, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C. If you like food, then that's basically the entire country. Pizza in New York, tacos in LA, meat almost anywhere. Amazing natural points such as Yosemite and Yellowstone National Parks. South Dakota has Mount Rushmore. The New York/Ontario border (US/Canada) has Niagara falls. A hike in Pennsylvania's Poconos doesn't sound too bad either, but usually American citizens living in Pennsylvania, NJ, NY, CT or around the area visit there.

I went to San Francisco a while ago. It was winter in Australia so we went there to get some sunshine... it was a bit foggy but it was nice, and we met some really nice people there, and at the park we saw some people with a donation stand that said "Black Lives Matter". And there was this cute little girl who walked by me when I was walking my cousin's Chihuahua cross, Phoebe and said "little doggy". Other cities, however, aren't that nice. But I love USA! Cheers from Australia!

Don't argue "oh, they're so racist, ugly never want to go there! "
First of all, over half of the country is democratic and supports Muslims, LGBT rights, and believes in equal rights.

And the reason why it's at the top is because it's variety. People are always arguing that countries like the Bahamas are beautiful because of their beaches, which I always find pathetic.

The United States has something for everyone. Lush jungles with colorful plants, freezing bays with small huts, bustling cities with billboards and stores surrounding you, beautiful blue beaches with bouncing dolphins, peaceful towns bordered by mountain �" anything you want!

I'm a Muslim, you may say Muslims hate the US but no. I love it. Never been there but anyone I know said that people smile to you even if they're strangers. I saw a picture of US in the 30s and it had skyscrapers and beautiful streets and even lights on shops only the cars were old. I vote for America because it is the number 1 country in the world.

2 France France, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories. The European part of France, called metropolitan France, extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to ...read more.

I'm sorry but US first? Since when does US have a more interesting background than countries like Italy or France, since when does US have better food than France? France is an amazing country, Paris, the city of love, city of lights, the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre Museum, the city of Fashion, cause excuse me but USA didn't create fashion, Italy, France and UK did. But what about the south, the beautiful beaches, Cannes, people, food, life... Then we have the Mt Saint Michael, north of France, center with mountains,... So many beautiful places! France is the most visited country so why is it here it should be in the top 3 (at least)...

It's certainly on of the most interesting (culture, history, architecture, castles, cities, villages, entertainment..), diversified (with overseas territories: Rain forests, Coral Islands and Atolls, volcanoes, seas, oceans, mountains..), all that and even much more makes France one of the best to visit and to live in, just a bit expensive, like everything is rare. Maybe the best, indeed.

Why France is one of the most famous country:

Lots of different landscapes, architectures, more than 36 000 villages and cities, lots of different cultures etc...
Famous for its food, gastronomy, for its History (for the best and worst), its known thousands of castles (e.G. châteaux of the Loire Valley),
Its river network (the first in Europe), ski area (the largest in Europe) etc..

Among the most beautiful beaches in the world, because of many Islands and territories like:
- Part of Amazonia (French Guyanne),
- French Polynesia with about 120 among the most beautiful Islands (Pacific Ocean), - French Caribbean with various known islands (Atlantic Ocean),
- Reunion, Mayotte are splendid islands (Indian Ocean) etc..
Etc..

And France (metropole) surrounded by North Sea, Atlantic Sea and Mediterranean.
That makes France one of the rare countries flanked by 4 oceans (Antarctic included).

Due to its numerous Overseas departments and ...more

In spite of recent terrorist attacks France has been victim, France still remains, in 2016, the most visited country by foreign tourists, France and French people deeply thank them, you will be always welcome in France and all its oversea territories (Caribbean Islands, French Polynesia, Guyana, Reunion, Mayotte, Tahiti, Bora Bora...).

3 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 by area (size is 9.985 million km²).

CN Tower, Great white north, Arctic Beauty, Niagara falls, the Canadian Rockies, Ever green wilderness, The lakes, St. Lawrence River.

Polar Bears anyone? The great lushness of the taiga forests bear enough beauty to marvel at.

I live in Ontario and love Canada. It's an amazing place to camp in the wilderness. If you don't love animals, you're not Canadian.

I live in toronto and I am happy to be a canadian

Best place in the world, nature is the best

4 Italy Italy, in italian Repubblica Italiana, is a unitary parliamentary republic in Europe. ...read more.

In every city, even in the smallest village you can see ancient cities and world heritage. Full of culture, opposite of the USA. USA has no good food, no culture, nothing... you can all find this in Italy

Kind of comment we can found from Italians: "Italy is 68% of World Heritage." Absolutely Italy has in 2017 51 sites on a total number of 1,052 so 4,8% and not 68%. Ok in USA it's less with 23 sites but 13 are natural sites like Grand Canyon, Yellowstone or Yosemite which are monumental sites hundreds time greater than a small church in a Italian village that nobody knows. So Italy is out of this listas well as the Italian liars.

Italy is the best nation ever. many people in the US, Canada and beyond travel to Italy some people close to each year. I can see why Italy is on this list.

Amazing country with the best pizza the pasta is great and unless your in rome the people are nice

5 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.

My aunt, her husband and my two cousins lives in Brisbane. When I was two years old, I visited them whit my mother. It was a great time! We stayed there a half year, and now 11 years later I realize that Australia is my favorite country to visit, definitely! And I hope to visit my aunt and my cousins again.

I live here. It's a great country. The people are very funny and friendly. I recommend going to the Gold Coast.

So ancient! Home to great barrier reef, uluru, hamelin pool, pinnacles and many more amazing places!

In 2014 and 2015 we were claimed happiest country alive

The food, you should definitely try. It has beaches, it has mountains, it has rivers, it has deserts, everything. Taj Mahal, one of the Seven Wonders is in Agra. Every city is different from the other one in some way and it is a very popular tourist destination. You should definitely try coming here.

7 Germany Germany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806. ...read more.

Yeah, about that... uh, I don't understand why it's called one of the best and happiest countries to visit after what was happening between 1939 and 1945.

Also if I already life in Germany I say Germany is no. 1! And my goal is to be in every place in Germany!

Cool language, nice people. Berlin is the best city.

I've been there and its very exciting Freiburg is romantical and very interesting

8 Japan Japan is an island country in East Asia in the Pacific Ocean. It lies off the eastern coast of the Asia Mainland (east of China, Korea, Russia) and stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea and near Taiwan in the southwest. ...read more.

I live in CALIFORNIA and its no match for the mighty Japanese culture! I will admit, San Fran is great (LA is way too smoggy and weird, but if you ever go to Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Yokohama, Hiroshima AND MORE, you will realize the intense beauty and spiritual with a wild nightlife as well. Its just so great!

The people are very polite, the food is AMAZING, the technology they have is simply incredible, the girls are more than special, the anime and manga industry is rapidly growing thanks to Japan, the beauty of Sakura trees, temples and shrines. Lastly, It has everything America has with MORE, like amusement parks, beaches, mountains and snow, and the amazing nightlife of Tokyo!

I am fascinated by Japanese culture and almost everything they do! Their food is delicious, their products are great, their music is awesome! In my opinion, the language is easy to learn, speak, and read. I really want to live there someday when I grow up!

Their food is good their music is good, let's face it, there's a lot of good things about Nihon. But, learn Japanese before going.. It's rude to go to different countries without knowing the language.

I am so surprised at how kind Japanese are towards us "Gaijin." I didn't know much Japanese when I went, however Japanese strangers are very polite and helpful.

I live here. Honestly one of the safest countries on earth. And our wildlife is very good too. We even have some surprising wildlife, while not technically native, we have wild boars and wallabies, and some coatis. England and Scotland are nice

It is a pretty safe country. I live here too. Where I live is very safe.

Truly the center of the world and history. London features the Churchill war rooms, National Gallery, Picadilly Circus, British Museum. The best most ethnically diverse and delicious food is in London and the people are very nice. Cornwall has beautiful beaches and coastline. The midlands has beautiful countryside. Scotland has the most rugged and beautiful mountains and Wales features great national parks with lots of hiking and pubs. The UK is the best place in the world.

Here are places in the UK, which everybody should visit:

Stonehenge on 21st June
Big Ben
Blackpool Tower
The Shard
NEC
Eden Project
Giant's Causeway
Peak District
Lake District
Snowdown
Ben Nevis
Seven Sisters
Newquay
London Dungeons
Warwick Castle
Buckingham Palace
And its overseas territories.

UK is great! It's got everything from Big Ben and the famous London to the countryside and relaxing Wales! In my opinion the best country to visit!

10 Spain Spain, officially the Kingdom of Spain, is a sovereign state largely located on the Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Europe, with archipelagos in the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea, and several small territories on and near the north African coast.

Is the best country to visit. Here we can see beach, mountain, culture, running bulls, museums, good food... And perfect sun

The reason I like Spain is because it is guaranteed sunshine (mostly) and only a short flight away.

Mostly is correct, the north has a similar weather to England and France.

Spain and France are the best in Europe and in top 5 in the world.

Dream destination... Picturesque, exotic and spellbinding landscapes...

Very underrated, beautiful places, great people, sweet as country

It's the best country to visit...
It's more fun the Philippines...

It is certainly more fun in the Philippines! The 7,107 islands is not just a number, each island has its own natural resources, heritage, native people, food, beaches, and that extra-special something it can boast of. =)

Philippines is a beautiful country to visit because of the spectacular views and welcoming, hospitable caring people.

I'm Icelandic, and I like the Philippines. It's not REALLY that safe but it's still good.

16 Iceland Iceland, also called the Republic of Iceland, is a Nordic island country between the North Atlantic and the Arctic Ocean.

Iceland for theneuros

17 England England, previously the Kingdom of England, is a constituent country of the United Kingdom along with Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. ...read more.

Anywhere but London is great. London is overpopulated, ruined and expensive, courtesy of 13 years of the last Labour Government (1997-2010).

They have also ruined London by allowing many areas transform into third world societies. This was done by creating too many crowded ugly council housing blocks, imposing Sharia Courts/Law, making schools crap, encouraging kids to act like uneducated, spoilt, scally, sub-human, feral thugs (usually born out of wedlock to single mothers dependent on welfare), allowing drug/knife/gun/gang culture to grow, the rise of race hustlers (Diane Abbott, Lee Jasper, Darcus Howe, David Lammy and many more).

I am ashamed to say that although I am British there are so many places I have not visited here! My favourite places are Cornwall, Devon, Isle of Wight, Wales, The Cotswolds and Salisbury. Also Bath for a day trip is amazing with the Georgian architecture and of course the incredible street music.

I live in London and all this monuments are amazing! I visit often the countryside and it is brilliant. Nice country.

Wait a sec england and UK are on list. Is UK one or 4?

18 México Mexico, officially the United Mexican States, is a federal republic located in North America. The country is located between the U.S. and Central America, and is known for its Pacific and Gulf of Mexico beaches and its diverse landscape of mountains, deserts, and jungles.

Thanks god for beatiful places like Mexico, usa, Brazil, France and Italy. I can not say nothing about other countries just cause I have been there. But if you just want enjoy this beatiful world go any country y discover what wonders you can find.

VIva mexico, and his rich culture, delicious food, good music, gorgeous lanscapes, all weathers almost are in this country.

Mexico has an accent?

Turkey has Istanbul, one of the most ancient cities in the world. Istanbul has been the capital city for 1600 years, a big city for 3000 years, and a settlement for 300.000 years. Istanbul is priceless, not like any other cities in the world. Besides, Turkey is the bridge between Asia and Europe, has 4 seas, and 3 climates. Turkey is a place for everyone.

I love Turkey so much! Meals are so yummy.
When I said I'm Japanese or I'm from Japan, great Turkish people try to hug us. And they speak some Japanese words. Told us, our historical some episodes made us interesting. Love y'all.

I loved Turkey and how friendly, although I am British they did not detect an accent and assumed that I was from Finland or Denmark because I could be understood!

A cute island, small population. #1!

Cuba has had issues but it is 2016, not 1962

23 Ireland Formed in 1916 after the Easter uprising, Ireland is a small country with a population of roughly 5 million.

24 Brazil Brazil, officially the Federative Republic of Brazil, is the largest country in both South America and the Latin American region.

I would like to see Christiano Rodiguez and other famous Brazilian soccer players compete in the FIFA World Cup 2016! That would be fun! And then we can go to the beach in Rio, then watch the big parades!

I lived in Brazil! It's a good place, mainly if you like sun, there are many good and pretty beaches but thre is a little of crime in the big cities like Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.
Hugs

I am from brazil I wish u can go there it's a good place

great place

25 Greece Greece, officially the Hellenic Republic, also known since ancient times as Hellas is a country located in southeastern Europe.

I can not believe that Greece isn't even in the top 10. Fantastic islands for having a good time on summer, friendly people, exciting weather, the best food in Europe and many other great things. Also, Greece is one of the most ancient and one of the most historical countries in the world. All of us must be proud of this country because this country brought to us culture and humanity...

I do not understand why this is not first, the other countries would not be what they are today without Greece. Wake up call, they created civilization! Greece by far destroys all but sadly, people will deny what they know to be true. Seriously, England. I can't help but laugh.

Greece! Duh! The most beautiful islands ever, the best hospitality, delicious food and of course great history and civilisation! Greece got it all!

I LOVE Greece! Greek food, Greek tourist attractions, Greek gods, Greek history, Greek styles, Greek everything! You could say I'm Greek crazy.
