Top 10 Dirtiest Countries In the World

The Top Ten

1 India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world. Its capital is New Delhi. Some other major cities are Mumbai, Chennai, and Ahemdabad. more.

India is not so dirty... When I went to India... I see there is so many beautiful places... Actually I love it...

I never bought into this notion that any particular country is dirty. The label "dirty" should not be used to define a country, but humans living on it. Also, don't judge any country in its entirety after watching a couple of manipulated videos on YouTube.

Being an Indian myself, it feels tempting to hurl a defensive or patriotic comment to counter its existence on this list. The fact of the matter is that our motherland is indeed a victim of various kinds of pollution due to the negligent activities of its inhabitants over the years. While, the corrupt authorities have their fair share into it but, expecting them to clean up the entire mess is a bit too much to ask for because some of us as an individual lack that accountability too. It's not that the Central or State governments haven't been taking steps for the environment or health cause. They have been taking measures to eliminate grave concerns such as open defecation and contamination of drinking and bathing ...more

India has a beautiful culture, a truly peaceful and harmonious national religion known as Hinduism and great food! But however, there is a sad truth that this country struggles with immense poverty in many areas. Almost half of the population defecates/poops in public because they are too poorly educated to know how to use a toilet, and many also litter and spit on the streets as they are unaware of the risks of plague and disease. This is also prevalent in other neighbouring countries near India such as Pakistan and Bangladesh, who also struggle with high amounts of poverty and poor education.

Indians are pigs and seeing India in this list doesn't surprise me at all. They are so backwards and living with animals as it's too normal. India is the world's garbage.

2 Pakistan Pakistan was established in 1947 and is located in South Asia. Islamabad is the capital city of Pakistan. Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar are other major cities of Pakistan. Urdu and English are official languages of Pakistan. World's second highest peak (K-2) and ninth highest peak (Nanga Parbat) are more.

Well at least in Pakistan we don't eat cow crap or drink cow pee like they do in india. These are strange traditions and no wonder why so many people there are diseased. Dirty people in india.

Pakistan is the most disgusting hell on this earth. It is WAY dirtier than India. Pakistanis are a bunch of disgusting pigs on this earth.

Because there is always crimes happening in pakistan and people there kill people.

Pakistan is the most dirty country. All I could see was garbage only in Pakistan. Person can not stay in failed country like Pakistan. All dust and dirty minded people were there

3 Somalia

Somalia = trash can

Whoever said that somalia is a trash can, please stfu. There are some places in somalia that are dirty, but it really is beautiful


I agree with Google, Somalians don't bath regularly, what more their sorrounding

4 Bangladesh Bangladesh, on the northern coast of the Bay of Bengal, is surrounded by India, with a small common border with Myanmar in the southeast. The country is low-lying riverine land traversed by the many branches and tributaries of the Ganges and Brahmaputra rivers.

It was Dirty. But it's changing it's dirt musk very progressively. If you visit now it may seem very wonderful to you. You'll love it. People of Bangladesh are so clean by heart and beauty. Dirt is a creation from nature. Bangladesh is going to be one of the cleanest countries in the world very soon.

Bangladesh is a country of Indian subcontinent, to the east of India on the Bay of Bengal, is a South Asian country marked by lush greenery and many waterways.

Very dirty and very poor

Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and Myanmar they are all the same!

5 Haiti

Very dirty

6 Afghanistan Afghanistan, officially the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, is a landlocked country located within South Asia and Central Asia.

This country is dirty and in war

Every country would like to keep their culture rich and clean environment but about Afghanistan if the foreigner forces let them live by their own and stop supporting terrorism from backstage

Afghanistan is not too much dirty then others country you all can check it.

Afghanistan is My brothers clean no Dirty

7 Philippines The Philippines was established in March 16, 1521 and named in honor of a Spanish King whose name is King Philip of Spain II. It is located at Asia, specifically at Southeast Asia. The capital is Manila. 89% of the people there currently are native, while 11% of people there are foreigners.

I must say, I haven't been there; but 2 of my uncles, their wife and children and this rich Filipino would agree and one of the uncles and his daughter said it is not clean.

This one uncle likes the Phillipines, but can say bad stuff about the Phillipines, and his daughter lived there for most of her life and she loves the Phillipines, and said some parts are dirty.

On May 8 do you thousand 19 I want to the Philippines it was very nice but kind of dirty but everyone was so nice

Dude it's pretty there, especially the resorts. The people are nice, but there are slums too.

I vote not to underestimate my country but it is the way to comment here.
I'm a Filipino. I agree, in all of the words you trashed to us. But here's my opinion, Philippines is a country with 7,641 islands overall. So in short, our country is far away and separated from each other so we don't have cooperation with the people living here. There were trash on some places but do not include all. You should be ashamed in places which doesn't even have an island but not concerned in their dirty country.

8 Iraq Iraq, officially the Republic of Iraq, is a country in Western Asia. more.

Really horrible country

Iraq is not all the bad things people say. Before iraq was a beautiful country until other countries made conflict, and also your racist because my family came from this country

Iraq is just a complete desert, it gets dirty a lot because they get frequent sandstorms.


9 Iran Iran, also known as Persia, officially the Islamic Republic of Iran, is a sovereign state in Western Asia. The capital city is Teheran and the major city is also Tehran. The country's official language is Persian. more.

Dirty country with dirty people

I think the guy yelling stuff is a bot, but there are some dirty areas. However, overall, this place deserves to be MUCH lower on the list.

ME either I love this country

Iran is not to much bad

10 China China, officially the People's Republic of China, is a sovereign state in East Asia. It is the world's most populous state, with a population of over 1.388 billion. It was established in 1949 by Chairman Mao, the president of the communist party. Its capital is Beijing. The major cities are Shanghai, more.

Smog in the cities and the government is run by psychotic commies. Also is the birthplace of coronavirus and many other diseases. TOO MANY HUMANS ON THE PLANET EARTH!

They use fake rice and other food

These guys fake everything because they HAVE to!

The Yanks are the reason!

When people think of China being dirty, they think of just the sweatshops there being dirty. Well, no, so much of such a very densely populated country is just dirty.

The Contenders

11 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 more.

I feel that USA is actually pretty clean compared to all the others

The surroundings are dirty and even worse are the minds of the people. Racism and so on.

We have the most racism in the world here in America because we have the most diverse population.

Usa is the most dirtiest country in the word

The people here are so stupid and making anything they want to do, specially throwing garbages anywhere.

12 Libya Libya, officially the State of Libya, is a country in the Maghreb region of North Africa bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the north, Egypt to the east, Sudan to the southeast, Chad and Niger to the south, and Algeria and Tunisia to the west.

In Geography Libya Is Breathtaking. The Grassy Slopes, The Rich Soil And Even The Deserts Have Paradise In It. But Libya Is Crazy These Days. I'm A Libyan Myself And Boy Libya Is Insane (It's More Peaceful Now But A Little Crazy)

I think a lot can be done if people sart caring about it.


13 Venezuela Venezuela, officially the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, is a federal republic located on the northern coast of South America.

A Venezuelan flatmate: He washes his socks and underwear once a week, shirts once a month, pants and outfits never washed in 1 year... never clean the apartment's shared areas - stole shampoo and shower gel from the hotel he works, never use soap (bar or liquid) to wash hands after using the toilet... he smells like hell...

Caracas is very dirty don't go there

14 Albania Albania is a southeastern European country that is slightly larger than Maryland and near Montenegro, Kosovo, Republic of Macedonia, and Greece. The capital is a city called Tirana. Some other major cities in Albania are Durrës, Elbasan, Vlorë, and Shkodër. Albania gained its independence in 1912. more.

All country is dirty.

Very unhygienic people.

These people call pakistani people dirty. What about themselves? I live in Scandinavia and never visited another so dirty country as Albania.

Albanian recycling: Throwing litter on streets and in the Mediterranean sea.

15 Honduras Honduras became an independent nation in September 15, 1821. Bordering Countries: Guatemala, El Salvador, and Nicaragua. Capital: Tegucigalpa, FM Population: 8 Million Language: Spanish Major Exports: Coffee, Bananas, Apparel, and Palm Oil. Currency: Lempira

The water is so DIRTY, I can’t take it, Honduras is so dirty

16 El Salvador El Salvador, officially the Republic of El Salvador, is the smallest and the most densely populated country in Central America.
17 Brazil Brazil, officially the Federative Republic of Brazil, is the largest country in both South America and the Latin American region.

This one should be highest in the list. People takes out rubbish at the streets as it is common and fair. General attitude of "it's not my concern". Dirtiest and smelliest rivers at the cities; the sewers are dejected at the beaches. At Carnival the country turns a giant trash bin. People are always trying to take advantage at the situations, so if there are rules of any kind they gladly disregard it, including the correct disposal of trash.

Brazil is hell. People there are horrible and evil

Okay, it might not be the dirtiest country in the world, but man the country seriously suck, there's litter everywhere, the people have no ethics. Just compare the streets of Brazil with the ones in Argentina, Chile and Uruguay on street view and you'll see the difference.

I’ve heard about a community in this country that’s dirty and where rats run around in.

18 Indonesia Indonesia, officially the Republic of Indonesia, is a country in Southeast Asia. Ruled by the Dutch for over 300 years and Japan for 3 years and 6 months, the country gained independence in 1945, or exactly in 17th August 1945. Jakarta is the capital city, located in the island of Java. Major languages more.

I visited Jakarta. The city square looks good but, the urban area very dirty. I also went to Semarang. The village looks clean. And Surabaya, I think Surabaya is the cleanest city. Surabaya had good sidewalk better than Jakarta

Its very dirty and very bad freshed

I'm from indonesia and I'm a nature lovers, I think indonesia is in number 10

When I went to Batam I look out of the bus window and its like the Democratic Republic Of The Congo burnt tree's and a lot of sand when I got to the hotel I accidentally drank the tap water in the bath and I got Nausea, Dizziness and Fever.
Oh why did I visit

19 Syria Syria, officially the Syrian Arab Republic, is a country in Western Asia. Syria has been involved in a civil war since 2011.

20 Mexico 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.

Ugliest country I've ever seen Because there is always crimes happening in Mexico and people there kill people.

Some of the buildings were having a very huge absolutely messy destruction in Mexico.

Mexico is an excellent place for tourism but when it come to education it is very poor. The roads to are also not that clean

Mexico Is a nice country because they have really good tacos and nice statues

21 Guatemala Guatemala, officially the Republic of Guatemala, is a country in Central America bordered by Mexico to the north and west, the Pacific Ocean to the southwest, Belize to the northeast, the Caribbean to the east, Honduras to the east and El Salvador to the southeast.

The unfortunate result of overindustrialization and totalitarianism. The dictator does not care about us or the kind of environment we live in. He doesn't care that the pollution is so bad that it is becomming a SAFETY ISSUE! All he cares about is staying in power and sending a JAS-39 or 2 to bomb us every few days!

I understand poverty exists there, but it costs nothing to clean up, they seem to of given up! Filthy place

22 Yemen Yemen, officially known as the Republic of Yemen, is an Arab country in Western Asia, occupying the southwestern to the southern end of the Arabian Peninsula.

This people came to the US and think they are better than the Americans, and they come from a country we give $90 million every year just to survive, and I learn is one of the dirtiest countries of the word!

Pretty dirty country over all, bad laws and I don't recommend you go there. One of the people I know went there and they were kept by Al-Qaeda for 2 years!

yes yemen

23 Saudi Arabia Saudi Arabia, officially known as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, is an Arab state in Western Asia (Middle East) constituting the bulk of the Arabian Peninsula. The official Language is Arabic. The capital city is Riyadh.

25 Ghana Ghana, officially called the Republic of Ghana, is a sovereign unitary presidential constitutional democracy, located along the Gulf of Guinea and Atlantic Ocean, in the subregion of West Africa.

Sure it is dirty but enough of the hate. This is what you get when you are one of the best nations in the world

Indeed the most dirty city ACCRA I visited ever, it is a danger to stay there, Ghana is a nice place but please avoid the big cities, they have 300 days sun and nobody puts solar, just crazy, driving there with old cars and bad petrol, and using rubber bags for everything, and open gutter and no garbidge disposal,

Lets keep Ghana clean. Ghana is not for anybody, its for us. Lets protect our Mother land. I believe that Ghana can be counted as one of the cleanest countries in this world. I am a proud Ghanaian

We need to clean our countries please Ghana make the nation proud
