Most Overrated Countriesbooklover1 Now, I know what you're thinking: Booklover, how could you possibly insult whole countries? Easy. I don't insult them. I just think they're getting credit for doing not as much as plenty others, as well as have a low population and get all the news for no reason. Let's get started.
The Top Ten
Americans aren't very kind. They are half kind & half mean. They try to act how they want. That is mean for good people because if you are a good person then you should act good. You should be perfect.
We aren't concerned about the environment enough. We are lazy and just dispose whatever we want to. Only things that must be disposed like batteries should be disposed. And the things we can't recycle. We should just keep to make something new.
The entertainment is overrated. I have only seen a few good things to watch & listen. a lot of it sucks.
We shouldn't get in other countries' affairs. We should mind our own business. We try to get oil from the Middle East. We should leave them alone. Why can't we make our own oil?
Also I don't like the English language because the words aren't always pronounced how they are spelled. And we always should a consontants between a vowel. - mistersnakey3
You can't say that all Americans are rude and do not care about the environment. That is a completely wrong generalization. - Mooshroomsrock17
Claim they are better than everyone else they don't even say one reason why they are better. They just say they are better and they do not have an explanation. They are not the best. So when someone asks me what makes them the best I would say I don't know what your talking about. Hey Americans give me two reasons why you think america is the greatest. You teach everyone their that you are so star spangled awesome and say you are the only ones with freedom when Canada has freedom Japan has freedom Australia has freedom Germany has freedom Sweden has freedom Belgium has freedom Austria has freedom you guys are not the only ones. Britian has freedom. You guys are just jealous because you know that your country sucks you just don't want to admit it. As a canadian I would rather live in Japan than the United States. Although never been their Japan has a longer life expectancy than both america and Canada. Canada and Japan both have a longer life expectancy than the United States. Also the ...more
You morons, where do I begin? Most mean people are raging online here In America. The United States is the most powerful nation because of one reason. Yes Obama is nasty along with Clinton and Trump, our economy isn't the best, and our congress isn't doing anything right now, but the reason we are at the top right now is the FACT that we have the most toys to play with in terms of weapons. We did need outside help,to win wars at first because we were a new nation. And the fact that we never fought alone, except in our civil war even though the Confederate States of America had support from the U.K., we were not the ones who asked for help. We gave help to the Allies against the Central Powers in WWI and against the Axis Powers of WWII. Oh and Americans who believe the moon landing was fake and WWE is real are just Morons. That is less than 1% of our population. And those who think our entertainment sucks, there's crappy entertainment everywhere. Only good stuff either gets praised or ...more

Sweden is a simply awful place to live, especially in the big cities. Let me give you are a tour through the hell that Sweden actually is. First of all the suburbs, rat forsaken holes that no man nor women deserves to experience. Drugs, alcohol and other criminal activity is very common in the suburbs and so the big cities, which the suburbs are located rather near. The culture in Sweden it self is completely horrendous and so is the people, whether ethnic swedes or immigrants the people are just dreadful. The shyness and unpleasantly is to great for words to describe and so is the unkindness, here in Sweden people are just really mean to each other. If you even ask them what time it is, it seems like they are about to call the cops on you. Everyone is just so angry all the time, and don't let me get started on the kids and youths. The youngsters are just so badly raised that it seems like all they can become are bank robbers which a lot of suburban kids become, or drug addicts but ...more
Before you guys talk about criminal rates, I'd like to mention that other countries have MUCH more crime compared to Sweden. All places have "vulnerable areas", the Swedes just chose to mention it out loud. Yes, the people are very shy, but once you get to know you'll learn how nice they are. Unless, of course, your one of those rude people who need's to take a chill pill. I'm assuming you met one mean person and decided that everyone is like them? Or maybe your one of those rightists who can't even tell the difference between real or fake news. No, I have been here and this place is not overrun with immigrants. There are plenty other cities who have accepted much more refugees. If you just didn't like it because it wasn't to your taste, that's totally fine! Anyway, in response to the comment below me, how many residents are drug addicts or bank robbers? Not many, right? Please stop focusing on only the negative aspects and actually open your eyes, though I doubt that's possible for ...more
I hate how popular Sweden is compared to Norway, Denmark and especially Finland. It's like Finland never gets any love or anything just because it's so different from the rest of the Nordic countries. I guess Pewdiepie and Minecraft (the most overrated in the world) is the reason why Sweden is the best country ever. Sweden also feels so innocent, it's like everything they do is good. I feel sorry for Finland because of Sweden
Sweden is not more overrated than UK or France! It's waay safer and does not get nearly as much love as those countries, yes, this country has very much issues, but jut visit one of the smaller towns or cities, they are REALLY good! - darthvadernV 12 Comments
Here in Switzerland we have lots of Italians who immigrated with us for the last 150 years.
Each year and that for generations most of them, and by entire families are returning back to their own country (Italy). That shows how much they are not integrated and how much they do not want to really stayed in Switzerland. Those people do not give any added value to our country. They just refuse to be pure Swiss.
And we guess that this stupid and arrogant way to do is not only visible in Switzerland but also in major countries where they have migrated all along the ages.
So they just come with their food pizza and pasta, eat just that and never try to tend to be Swiss.
Most of other migrants from Asia, Africa and South-America for example are much more respectable people and therefore much to be respected.
And Italians will never accept in their own country someone doing the same as they are doing.
For this reason Italians are very racist, in ...more
Yes that is true, there in Italy, people are very racist.
It's so hard as a black or Arabic to find a good job, homes and it seems that because you are not Italian, you have to struggle for anything.
Italians don't hesitate to show their hates, specially when you are foreigner. I was tired of the racism in Italy.
I call all migrants to come here in Italy to make change things.
We will succeed, because there is a lot to do here anywhere Italians are so lazy and inefficient.
If you plan on driving in Italy: Don't, they are the worst drivers in the world.
I had 7 weeks of being tail gated by aggressive drivers trying to prove they all had bigger dicks by going too fast, tail gating and horn honking.
Entertainments and attractions are equal to zero.
Everything in Italy is overpriced, Italian people are lazy, the country is dirty and they are on strike every other week.
The museums are closed on Monday and other days in the year. We tried a restaurant was closed at lunch time because it was their lunch time. This country is a shame.
Keep your money and spend it somewhere else.
The most overrated in everything: Best food? Because of pizzas? What do you know about food of the other 197 countries, nearly nothing, countries underrated in food issue like USA, UK, Denmark are so far better than Italy, and without speaking about African, South American and so tasty food from Asia. Landscape? most meh and so dirty. Cities? Chaotic, old, noisy, decrepit. People? arrogant in the north, poor and 'redneck' in south. Dolce vita? In the 70s, maybe, but now? Nothing remains except the old illusion.V 5 Comments
"Look guys! Toronto and Vancouver are jam packed with so many immigrants! Clearly the government's PR campaign must be working and everyone is living with unicorns and butterflies running around. We're just so much better than the US in every way, even though people who keep wanting to come here never do so, and those who do realize how hard is it to get a job thanks to our work experience program that says
you to your past accomplishments, and how your only option is in the increasingly criminal and expensive cities if you're a white immigrant. Maybe if you're a rich Asian you can spend a couple million on a suburb home in Calgary, but we'll still look funny at you nonetheless! Better not be black or an aboriginal in Western Canada! We can always whitewash our history and we can also ignore the constant reports by Martin, Trudeau and every provincial gov't that the aboriginals are treated like @#$# and that systematic discrimination and racism still occurs here towards ...more
I migrated to Canada and lived there for nearly 4 years and I can personally say being a friendly country is overrated at all. You go everywhere and they love to compare how much better they are than America. And rude rude people out there. You try to tell them you miss home and you would get reactions like " go home to your own country" or what made you come here then?! Giving you that very odd look. Oh look at us we have so much better in economy than US. Better this better that. And they talk about US news and sports and politics all the time and compare to them.
In the United States there's an odd need to either hate or love Canada. I don't really fall into either category. Most Canadians I've met have been somewhat rude, though such is likely due more so to the area than the people. What is really overrated about Canada is its assumed position as a 'friendlier' USA. It is a title that seems to be often stated by slackers or otherwise hypocritical people. This idea of Canda as an 'escape' from big bad mean USA is very overrated. There's only a small difference in culture between the USA and Canada (sorry all you hippie hopefuls out there). Canada's full of meanies just like the rest of us.
I know I may be biased (I’m American, after all) but I have lived in Michigan all my life and I have a Canadian cousin, and usually visit her for a month (annually). I genuinely feel like Canada is completely overrated. When I search up a comparison of Canada and the USA, many of the websites only acknowledge Canada’s pros and America’s flaws; something that irks me to no end. I dislike how many people seem to feel that Canada is flawless; it really isn’t, not by a long shot. I honestly am sick and tired of the pro-Canada things that have been circulating the web. Yes, I know they have free healthcare. Yes, I know their national parks are free (how is this even important enough to be listed so often on the pro-Canada lists?! ). But really, are they that great? I feel as if they’re so overrated that people won’t even admit they’re overrated- hence the low position on the list.
Also, their poutine, their beautiful dish, was so heavy that I was full after putting a ...more
Not over rated but over criticized. I have observed british media is quite keen on exaggerating and exclusively showing poor areas of India to show how poor it is. It's becoming quite pathetic actually. Maybe it has to do with their empire history? Maybe the brits are still very bitter about India gaining it's independence. It's definitely depends where you go in India to find those dirty areas, but it's definitely not the place it is shown to be in british media. I also like how mindlessly China's rich parts are shown, when it has equal amounts of old and rotting infrastructure.
India is a wonderful country portrayed as a poor country full of poverty but the media never show the real India but China is known to be powerful and rich even though the country is suffering from pollution and now because of China wanted to show the world its just as powerful as America it got greedy it now looks like a overpopulated wasteland. I guess richer countries like america want to show the world it's the only powerful country and tries to show developing countries as full of dumb poor.
In my opinion, India is probably the most successful underachieving country I've ever seen. Lots of countries such as Canada, England, USA, and Australia knows how useless this country is. This country for many company owners would be the last country they'd put their companies in. Why? They'd do jack crap and the companies going to make kids do it for them. That's right. Child labour is in India too.

I loved France the first time I went there, but I was tired after a while. I had to go four times, and it's not a bad place; I like it, but I got tired of it quickly as there wasn't much I hadn't done already. And everyone thinks that Disneyland (Paris) is the best thing in France. It's the WORST THING IN FRANCE! Walking around seeing creepy people in Goofy suits hug your children?!?! What are you supposed to get from that?!?! - PositronWildhawk
This is a good country, but this country is overrated because of Paris. People know France mostly because of this city
I'm living now in France and I can affirm that French are kind people. Of course like everywhere you will find some exceptions but not more than normal average.
And the country is so nice, including food, architectures, attractions, exhibitions, festivals...

If the Bermuda triangle didn't exist, nobody would think this exists. - booklover1
What I mainly dislike about this list is that it doesn't have very good choices. While some are simply bad reasons, some are too broad.
First, Bermuda is not a country. It's a British overseas territory. Second, I'd actually say it's UNDERrated. I've been to Bermuda and there was barely anyone there, and it was very beautiful and crime-free. - ColdTurkey
I think it's not underrated and not overrated because of the Bermuda Triangle, a overrated myth with pilots and sailors killing themselves to scare the world. - TeamRocket747

We are talking about overrated countries right? With all them anime lovers who never STFU about how great Japan is, this should be up there...
Japan might be a super nation or she was a super nation, but now Japan are getting weaker in every industry because the Japanese being too racist to Korean and Chinese that lived in Japan, to reclaim her former glory Japanese should accept Korean and Chinese that acquired Japan nationality in their life. - jason97

Thanks to all for calling us pointless and rude. Do you see what you're saying yourselves? We're not superficial, insincere or ignorant either. And I'm sure that Australia, being one of the oldest continents on Earth, has no culture or history. And nothing you can't get elsewhere? Yeah, I mean, there are lots of other countries EXACTLY like Australia, aren't there?
No culture, poor cuisine, and a rather dark shameful history! People are superficial, ignorant and sometimes downright racist and exhibit fake niceness that Americans and Brits are famous for (being insincerely nice seems to be a trait shared by anglocentric countries). An awful country that wouldn't be known if Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman didn't land in the next top insincere and overrated country contender: America!
Bland, boring, rude people, no history or culture, pride in nothing... Over priced and no sense of customer service. Just lame in general. (it is beautiful though in SOME spots)
Known as the lucky country, yet it is mostly hot deserts and filled with the largest range of dangerous, venomous or just plain icky or weird animals ever. The people are also the most arrogant I have ever encountered. - gigaV 12 Comments
Hang on, Britain is like the most underrated country in the world. No one ever sees anywhere other than London. 10 minutes driving out of the city centre and you are hit with beautiful green countryside, and the further you go, the more beautiful. We have beautiful beaches, lovely weather in the summer time (hitting as high as 34 celcius last year), lovely people and delicious food. We are not poor, we just live on less. Americans think that we are poor, but we just don't overeat and don't need everything to be huge. Outside of London, everything is to a brilliant standard, and we may not have the huge empire that we once did, but we have more overseas territories than any other country. We still lead the way in science and have the two best and most prestigious universities in the world. We have amazing traditions, and an extremely high standard of living. Those who think Britain is bad have either never been to Britain, or just not taken a 20 minute train out of the city.
The worst place I have ever visited. Nothing much to do except for shopping and relaxing at Hyde Park. Outside of London, it's even worse.
Definitely Overrated. Britain is such a small country

Let me tell you a story, there were two major earthquakes in 2010 that I recall, Haiti and Chile. Chiles was bigger and caused more damage, as well as being one of the worst earthquakes of all time, but since Haiti's poor, they get a song written about them, and tons of recognition. I wouldn't mind if Chile got more attention but nobody cared. - booklover1
That's the point, Haiti couldn't take care of itself, Chile could.
This country looks kinda underrated.
One thing that is extremely annoying about Israel for me is that almost every single Christian I meet has this stupid dream to go on some 'biblical tour' in Israel, now I have nothing against Christians (I'm a Christian myself) but the fact that they think it is some amazing and beautiful country like in the bible really gets on my nerves because in reality is actually a terrorist infected, poverty ridden desert just the same as the rest of the filthy middle east. Also Jewish people are extremely arrogant and racist, like they still think they are 'God's chosen race'. It is rather ironic that Jews are the proudest and most racist people in the world when actually their country is a totally trash, middle eastern hell hole.
Ruled by ultra-nationalistic parties, but criticizes nationalism anywhere else. Enforces apartheid but is called the "only democracy in the Middle East" etc. It's a tiny piece of land and it gets all the news. Who even cares?
Very arrogant, they think they are the superior race and other races are pigs... Just like the Nazis!

Pretty over rated, the people are egoistic and like to act like prudes. Their economy is mostly built on export markets and free grants from the US. If nigeria was given such an oppurtunity, they would have been in the same place that china is now. Plus a lot of inventions that it is attributed to is not even theirs. For instance, fire works was already used by Indian kingdoms in 5th century AD. And the first military use of fireworks was used by Tipu Sultan, an Indian king against british invaders. It's capacity is way over exaggerated.
I gotta be honest. China copied so many products from Japan, America, etc.
Why? It's because of communists.
Wonderful hardworking people but copied Americas bad example because they were trying to prove devolping countries can be just as good as powerful rich 1's

Don't even think of visiting Egypt. I've visited it before the revolution. If you're a foreigner even if an Arab, Egyptians will try to rob you in all possible ways. Sexual harassments are notorious here and are annoying, needless to say. The trip to the Pyramids of Giza is not as fancy or dreamy as it seems on Egyptian T.V. ads. The streets can be overcrowded and beggars will follow you everywhere and to make it worse, shopkeeprs near the pyramids will insist on giving you fake discounts even if you don't want to buy. Stick to hotel restaurants and don't even think of eating anything from the streets. You also don't want to give a tip to one hotel staff as plenty of others will come and walk beside you in desperate hope of receiving a tip. Also, once you step in the airport get ready for beggars(janitors working in the airport will ask you for money) and annoying smell.

I'm Brazilian and I agree 100%, the country is highly overrated, first of all Brazilians aren't friendly and tolerant as the media says, a lot of Brazilians are extremely homophobic and racist but they deny it.
The country is also unbearably religious, you go everywhere and listen to gospel Christians songs everywhere and it seems to be getting worse by day, if you aren't Christian basically you're disliked by the majority of the population, specially if you're an atheist or belong to an Afro-Brazilian religion.
I'd say Rio is by far the most overrated destination in the country, basically high crime rates everywhere not only in the city but in the whole state., Also Brazilians aren't warm, they pretend to be warm but talk rudely about you behind your back.
Brazilians have a very jealous culture, everyone is jealous of everybody here, if own an iPhone people will hate you, if you have a fit body people will hate you, basically Brazilians think they're inferior to ...more

Ireland must be the most overrated country ever - the weather is obviously dreadful, but more importantly the Irish are by no means any nicer or brighter than Brits or Yanks. Quite to the contrary, even though they indeed tend to be a simple, jolly folk, more often than not they are also ignorant and downright backward especially in comparison with their contemporaries in the Western Europe
Completely agree. I found the majority of the Irish rude and lacking in good communication skills. They mumble a lot, talk fast, talk quietly, and don't finish sentences. I thought their speech patterns were difficult to understand.
Loads of drunk young women and men that want to escape the sheer dreadfulness of this place. A culture revolving around one overrated awful tasting stout: Guinness! Enough said!
Ireland is good for a day or two visit, beyond that your time and money would be better spent somewhere else. It’s a boring country.
The people are fairly hospitable but also somewhat primitive and trashy. Terrible weather, terrible food, terrible service and overrated scenery that isn't any different from Britain or Northern France.
"Russians are so tough", "Russia is so cool" etc. Let me tell you, Russia is taking all the pride from rest of Eastern Europe. Polish, Ukrainians, Serbians and others are the same as Russians. Maybe even better. Those Russian stereotypes like their strength, bravery etc. Are basically taken from other slavic countries. Russians are not the strongest. Russians are not tough. I live in an area with a fairly big Eastern European community. Mainly dominated by Russians and Polish peoples, and believe me Polish people can kick some ass. Russians seem to be small. They just take other slavic peoples pride because they have the biggest country and population of slavs.
The most overrated Country in the World. Especially after the disgracement 2014 Olympics women's figure skating competition, when the Russians gaved a OK amateur the Olympic Gold medal instead of the Queen of skating, Yuna Kim. That was ridiculous judging and home style cooking!
I agree with this, also Russia took the Muslim Crimean Tatars land from them!

Do anybody even know where this place is?
I've literally just been there a few days ago and the only thing I want to say is there is almost absolutely no English signs and bus announcements even in the capital Vaduz so if you don't know even a tiny but of Swiss German you're probably not going to have an amazing time. The only thing they make souvenirs of is the Vaduz Castle, which is pretty good looking to be fair but that's literally the only thing. Also, after 18:30 even Vaduz starts becoming super dead. I am fine with it because I'm not really a person who go travelling for touristy unauthentic places, I liked the tranquility, but most people will have a pretty bored time in Liechtenstein. To be honest I myself crossed the Swiss-Liechtensteinian boarder just for the sake of telling people I've travelled to probably one of the least well known countries in the world. Last thing, bus drivers struggle to understand English so make sure to speak REALLY SLOWLY to them if you do go travelling in Liechtenstein.
The Filipinos there are rude when it comes with foreigners. However, it should be higher because of several reasons:
People - people there are half-witted, anti-intellect, and sometimes technophobic. There are poorer communities that practice child abuse due to poverty.
Government - the politics there is pathetic. It's pointless to blame the government for the people's faults. Also, they barely improve the country and are rendered corrupt all the way down.
Environment - It's not enough to clean up everything. Manila is considered to be the most polluted city to live in. Too much air and water pollution. Also, people let their dogs go anywhere in the streets (which is why people get their shoes stinky), and there is no sort of cleaning project by the government.

Actually and despite the fame Turkey is still underrated! I have never encountered such a beauty. The ancient ruins in Ephesus will captivate you till eternity and the monastery of Sumela in the Eastern part of the country will keep you mesmerized. The country is rich in terms of history and culture. A walk down the streets of Istanbul, Izmir and Bursa is a step back in time. The country offers whatever you're looking for. The food is excellent and the people are very helpful despite the fact the vast majority cannot speak English or any other language but Turkish and sometimes German. I especially fell in love with the scene of approaching Istanbul's Islamic city on a ferry. I honestly cannot stop loving this country
Turkey is ugly. People there, especially men, are yucky. Their language sounds bad too. Sorry, Turkey is not my speed.
I feel bad for saying this, but this is the worst country I've ever been to.
Well going there in a few days...can't wait
There is a prediction that Switzerland is going not to be so rich as before.
Arguably one of the most beautiful countries with the highest quality of life anywhere besides somewhere like Monaco. However, the Switzerland is one of the most utterly dull and mundane nations on Earth. Taking a ride on the rail through Switzerland, passing stunning views of the Alps and pristine lakes, walking alongside Lake Zürich, and seeing the Old City of Bern are all exhilarating experiences. However, actually living a Swiss life in Switzerland with Swiss people is another story. Switzerland epitomizes the idea that a perfect life is not actually desirable. That is not to say that there are not people who would desire such a life but those people would most likely already be Swiss, as their culture is very closed and unwelcoming. It may be consistently ranked as one of the best places to live...but for Swiss people and not everyone in general.
A bunch of cold schizophrenic folk! A lot of Swiss Germans are Möchtegernefranzosen, but obviously can't since they lack the friendliness and classiness of the Swiss French or the French generally! Stay away from this overly expensive piece of land! Go for Austria, France or Italy if you want a positive alpine experience!
Ancient Greece is over let it go, Greece now is a dump.

Not a good place to live. Poor infrastructure and low employment opportunities, houses are substandard too compared to other developed nations.
Nothing special about New Zealand. You can find better Mountains in Canada and Switzerland, better glaciers in Norway, better green scenery in all of Europe (especially Ireland) and better beaches in Australia. Add to that NZ is an incredibly boring place. New Zealand = Way Overrated.
More boring than Switzerland, and that's saying something.
I wouldn't say it's the most exciting country, but clearly something happened here that made the other commenters butthurt
Most overrated soccer team in the world.
Very Cold place
Iran is a fascinating country with a glorious past and very friendly people. Nevertheless and despite the fact the media tries hard to show Iran as a country of terrorists and bogeymen, there are travel books and T.V. shows that describe Iran as one of the most beautiful countries anyone could ever visit; in reality though it is far for being a heaven on earth. The whole place is overrated. The streets are overcrowded and ugly concrete blocks are everywhere! Many of the historical sites I have always dreamed of visiting were a big disappointment because there was not much to see, many of the sites were closed. The famous river of Isfahan was dry at the time I visited and it was a big disappointment cause surprisingly enough this river was one of the major reasons why I wanted to visit Isfahan. Shiraz which is famous for its gardens and roses was strikingly ugly. Its celebrated parks are overrated and I have seen much more beautiful parks elsewhere. I don't think I want visit Iran ...more
Iran is an exotic country that will simply put you in absolute awe. It is a fascinating land that has its own culture, traditions and heritage; that is neither east or west but rather uniquely Persian. It is an exotic country full of captivating monuments and architectural treasures. Iran is an open-air museum, every inch of the country has a story to tell. The classic cities of Isfahan, Yazd and Shiraz might be the main non-religious tourist attractions in the country but small villages like Kashan and Abyaneh are the ones that kept me mesmerized. I especially fell in love with the country when I was in the ancient village of Abyaneh. It is where little have changed ever since it was built some 3,000 years ago. Kashan on the other land is an oasis paradise. A town that prides itself on housing excellent architecture like the Safavid palaces and mosques as well as UNESCO-registered flowering gardens.
