The UK are very nice to everybody. It is usually the odd 1-3% of Brexiteers and really patriotic Brits that won't be.
When my grandparents came to the UK, from India, during 1950-1977, they all said, they were very welcomed. Even one woman came up to my mum and me and said, "I am so sorry how Britain did with the India-Pakistan border."

Another man came up to me and started to speak fluent Punjabi, Urdu and Hindi. I know a bit of Urdu, I speak fluent Punjabi, and Hindi is very similar to Punjabi.

I have only been bullied once, in my school. ONCE! Just because of my religion.

Also I have met so many people in the UK and we all open the doors for each other, unless we hate that person. We always go "after you." The UK is really a good country, you will 98.5% likely be welcomed. It depends where you go and what you do. If you knock a 50-55 year-old bald, short and fat man's beer in pub, you will likely have your head in the pub, your stomach and liver in France, ...more - DylanB5

If you head over to the worst countries in the world you'll find the UK sitting at number 10. Now personally (and this can't just be my opinion) either these are people who have had bad school/work experiences, or have never visited the country. I definitely agree with UK, Aus and Canada being top 3 because everyone I've met from these countries is usually just lovely.

Yeah! I'm a British girl and so many people in the UK are so gentle and kind! Screw the negative stereotypes! I definitely agree! (Not arrogant, just from my point of view! )

Buddha/GOD bless you and keep you safe!

Nicest people ever. Period.

Our terrible political problems have created problems in our society, but for the most part, we are very friendly people. Kathmandu does have riots that end up badly a lot these days but other places like Pokhara are very beautiful and very helpful people. And small villages, although lacking modernization and human development, are so freindly. Most people will let you spend a night or two at their house, give you good food and a warm bed, and treat you like your there kids. I highly recommend you visit Nepal, or wait for its gov't to get more stable for your own safty

I know we have most corrupt government and stuff but we are so friendly, to Nepalis and non Nepalis (except Indians, its a millenia-long hatred). We will help out anyone, and make friends with everyone. Very very nice people. don't look at our underdevelopment and judge us. Get to know us. Were very nice

Everyone is warm. As a French tourist I did not come across anyone trying to scam me with prices and everyone welcomed me. Many cities have a huge range of tourists from different countries. There is a huge sense of community and if you are ever lost, have been robbed or harassed, you will find many are willing to help. I lost my bag and a group of men ran after the perpetrator and brought him to justice on the spot. Not sure it was a good thing but I am definitely grateful to get my bag back with my passport and rupees!
