10 Dirtiest Countries In the World


The Top Ten

1 India 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.

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

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.

It's really very dirty, but I don't think it's dirtiest. Most of the people are not aware that they should keep their cities-villages clean. They throw garbages anywhere, spit anywhere... many people living below poverty lines lack sanitation system. Indian railway is the largest open toilet system in the world. You can see animal excreta almost in all the streets. Ultimately Indian people must become conscious environmentally.

INDIA TOPS THE LIST...! As Usual... When Modi is there there is nothing in the world could stop INDIA to be on top of this list...

Pakistan is Dirty because there is a lot of people. Makes it polluted. And messes like putting color sprays all over a stone wall. Like Thailand.

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.

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

Lived in US all my life. I’ve traveled the world, seen everything there is to see. US is by far one of the dirtiest country. Every city, state have a good side and then there’s the ghetto. These ghetto areas are always infested with Blacks.

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.

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.

Not all of us Filipino's are black and ugly but, we Filipinos are not SLUMS and our country is not so dirty!

I don't think filipians are ugly.they aren't n their country is not that dirty.i'm not a filipian

I think your mother or father throwed you and then you saw your picture in newspaper laying in that trash

United arab emirates is the country where I live I say it may be a good country but if you go near the roads of sharja or ras al khaimah you will find a bunch of dirt and trash and no garbage bags around and once I was passing by a road I say a bog huse eww tower of rubbish in Dubai too and many other places there is a lot trash even in Dubai I say they should clean their counry because in most often places in the whole uae there is a lot of trash and so much rotten smells around and I lived in sharja for 7 years before and non stop smell was coming it was so bad that I had to shift to Dubai! and change my school! you can't believe in Dubai also even if their are trash cans the people throw a buch of trash outside and the trashcan is only half diry almost in all citys and places in uae this happens so the government has to avoid the trash all outside and the food spilt on the ground and pipes are leaking so may avoid that!

Trash everywhere along the roads, we have never seen a so dirty city as Rome, and actually the food is not do good and not various. The people there are quite rude and they don't speak an English word. They have no containers, so the trash are in plastic bags, dissected for the most part spreading their nauseous content all around. Don't go there.

We did not expect such dirty country, comparing with the other so-called modern Western countries, it's certainly the most dirty. All along the roads, the ground is strewn of all kind of garbage (plastic bags, bottles, cans, washing machines, ovens, fridges, TVs...) or Italian people are grubby or there is not enough people to collect all those things thrown away or they are lazy... Maybe all of that.

Dirtiest in Europe.
