10 Dirtiest Countries 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.

Watch the Family Guy episode “Road to India” so that you see that such a crowded country is so polluted. - JoeBoi

Even though India and Bangladesh are very different when it comes to religion, they’re the exact same when it comes to the pollution issue the government wouldn’t really handle. I can’t believe citizens of Bangladesh are used to living in dirty conditions. - JoeBoi

20 Yemen 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.

21 Philippines 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.

Philippines is pretty much a tidy place. But besides if you go to YOUR province then it will be dirty. The country is part tidy and part dirty at the same time. Just look at Tondo and other dirty parts of the Manila neighborhood. That's just plain disappointing to see such a smelly traffics and some trash on the concrete ground.

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.

I agree, there's a lot of garbage everywhere, spitting, people peeing outside. And I also saw a lot of signs saying in Filipino "you cannot throw garbage", "you cannot pee here"

No, get this off the list! Dubai and Abu Dhabi look like extremely clean cities. - JoeBoi

I live in uae and the best and peacefull country in the world

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!

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

Everyone here who thinks Italy is dirty has no idea. Food is phenomenal, I was born and raised in Canada to Italian immigrants and the cooking that comes out of an Italian kitchen is far better than the rubbish from an ignorant Canadian household. Touring Italy is one of the best vacations one can experience. The new Canadian culture was built on the shoulders of Italian immigrants. Shame on you, shame on those whom are ignorant to the truth.

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.
