Most Underrated Countries

19Leviathan14
These are the most underrated countries on earth, unlike France, Britain or the USA, who are considered as overrated.

The Top Ten

1 France France France, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories. The European part of France, called metropolitan France, extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to ...read more.

Why France is one of most underrated country, because not known enough and not recognized at fair value:

Lots of different landscapes, architectures, more than 36 000 villages and cities, lots of different cultures etc...
Famous for its food, gastronomy, for its History (for the best and worst), its known thousands of castles (e.G. versailles, Castles of the Loire Valley (Chateaux de la Loire)),
Its river network (the first in Europe), ski area (the largest in Europe) etc..

Among the most beautiful beaches in the world, because of many Islands and territories like:
- Part of Amazon basin (French Guyana),
- French Polynesia with about 120 among the most beautiful Islands (Pacific Ocean), - French Caribbean with various known islands (Atlantic Ocean),
- Reunion, Mayotte are splendid islands (Indian Ocean)
Etc..

And France (mainland) surrounded by North Sea, Atlantic Sea and Mediterranean.
That makes France one of the rare countries flanked by 4 ...more

Most people know nothing about France except for Paris, even though its cities are beautiful and its history is interesting. Most people take Spanish instead of French because they think it is easier and more useful. (Both of these are wrong; French and Spanish are just as difficult, and there are more French-speaking countries in the world than Spanish-speaking countries) Most people think French people are rude, which they are not; in fact, French people are some of the nicest people I have ever met. This should definitely be number one. - Mooshroomsrock17

Because major part of people know only Paris and French Riviera, but France is thousands of times more.
We've been for example in Corsica, and I have visited dozens of Mediterranean islands, and surely Corsica is the most fabulous with so beautiful forests, mountains and of course its beaches.

FRANCE IS NOT UNDERRATED! EIFFEL TOWER? PASTRIES? THE FRENCH LANGUAGE? ROMANCE? EVERYONE KNOWS FRANCE! IT'S NOT UNDERRATED, IT'S CLICHE. - missyweirdo

2 Poland Poland Poland, officially the Republic of Poland, is a country in Central Europe, bordered by Germany to the west; the Czech Republic and Slovakia to the south; Ukraine and Belarus to the east; and the Baltic Sea, Kaliningrad Oblast (a Russian exclave) and Lithuania to the north .

Jestem Amerikaninim, ale jestesm Polakiem na pol or I am an American, but I am half Polish, my mother being of Irish, Swiss, and Norwegian extraction. However, I am proud of my Polish roots, having been to Ireland three time, Swizterland once but to Poland 11 times. Poland is vastly underrated by the international community, by travel groups, by Americans in general, ad nauseum. It is a wonderful country and society. I have felt less anti Americanism there than in any other country in which I have traveled.

Please study the history and culture of Poland. Search it on the internet, please.

One more comment: the Polish jokes started with Hitler in order to pave the way for the invasion of Poland in September of 1939. The Poles came to be viewed as subhuman, dumb, slow, et cetera. The Polish joke emigrated to the US via German displaced persons to the US after WWII as many were disgruntled with the displacement of eastern Germany (which was Poland historically-check it ...more

The United States of America is often quoted as being the most free, democratic country in the world. What most people don't know is that before the invasion of Poland in 1939, the start of World War II, Poland was the most tolerant, liberal, democratic and free country in Europe. There was simply no racism. Even America couldn't make that claim back then. Poland took in Jews, Africans and many other minorities, when no other country would. It is a country rich in history, kings and castles. Poland has historically shown bravery and resiliency, never had started a war or invaded another country in its 1000 year history (yes, that's a thousand with 3 zeros). In fact, it always had to defend itself and it did so successfully, against many enemies, throughout its history. Poland never attacked, always defended. In fact, even when outnumbered, by the Germans in 1939 and smashed to pieces, the polish army still put up a brave fight. Legend has it that the Polish army used horses and swords ...more

Poland is definitely the most underrated (at least, as far as talent goes), not sure about visit-wise. Around those areas near European countries are quite competitive. If I had to look at talent in style and intellect, the only two countries that come to mind are Poland and Japan. Polish people are true craftsmen. They create, not copy, and have excellent technical skills.

I am Polish, it is safe to say we are the proudest and strongest people in Europe. - N4XUS

3 Bhutan Bhutan Bhutan, officially the Kingdom of Bhutan, is a landlocked country in South Asia at the eastern end of the Himalayas.

Possibly had better government than any other country

This landlocked country deserves more recognition. Also,love the flag. Haha

With the Himalayas and the better HDI than Nepal, this is the Switzerland of Asia!

4 Germany Germany Germany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806. ...read more.

Incredibly underrated, they have one of the Top 5's economies, football teams and cultures, for Example the Oktoberfest. They are also one of the less western countries having good diplomatic relations with Iran and many other Islamic countries and at least even an embassy in North Korea. Here in Mexico, Germany is the only western country being considered as having a positive influence in the world.
They don't deserve to be connected with Hitler and all this Nazi rubbish anymore! - 19Leviathan14

Germany Mexico Japan = Former enemies of the USA, America sets the standard, no wonder that these three countries are on top of this list. The only thing is that these three countries, even Mexico, is more beloved than the USA!

I don't regret taking German as a foreign language even though most people told me not to. They wanted me to take French or Italian, etc. 10 years later they can't say anything in their respective languages because they lost interest! I never let go of my chosen language- German because the people are so friendly! The country is beautiful! Their literature is interesting, their music is so fun, and well I love their beer too! Hehe I could go on and on but I will just say that I was immediately hooked and have continued to remain up to date with the happenings in Germany. I read their news every day! I was once worried because people at school would demotivate me but I had the last laugh it seems laugh out loud now I am fluent and I LOVE Germany

I've been to Germany for a month and it was great. I didn't visit one of the popular cities like Berlin, instead I went to a small town called much, I don't know if I spelled it right but there are many nice restaurants and cafes that serve amazing ice cream, and the people are very friendly and welcoming. I also loved the scenery because I was in a small town so there was a lot of nature and farms. I really recommend visiting Germany - jasmynnerashid

5 Nepal Nepal Nepal, officially the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal, is a sovereign state located in South Asia. ...read more.

We are not in international news, nor our boys win any world cups and we don't have half-witted glamour industry like our two giant neighbors do and boast about. But what we have is a state full of rich natural beauty, unique culture and most prominently we are open and respect anyone and anything. We don't need hype. We know what we are and what our country is. Nepal has always been a country of free men as we have always been independent never been ruled by any foreign powers. Only if our politicians think straighthead, Nepal can be a a-list player in tourism industry.

I'm surprised (but glad) to see that Nepal actually made it on the list. Yes, it's economically poor, but its rich culture easily makes up for it.

Terribly underrated... A lot of potential and a lot of healthy manpower seriously on the down side currently

Some kids are forced to get married and have kids young. Not all, but it does happen.

Also, none of you are providing evidence as to how it's underrated.

Many people believe Canada is full of igloos and maple syrup but that couldn't be farther from the truth. Some of the best cities in the world are in Canada! In Vancouver you can snowboard and surf in one day and Toronto is one of North America's largest and fastest growing cities. Quebec City is one of the best examples of European architecture outside of Europe and Montreal is one of the most underrated cities in my opinion. Come to Canada and check it out for yourself!

It's america except less crowded more natural and friendlier people also we think we live in the best country in the world but don't feel the need to say or prove it we have pretty much everything you could want in a travel destination dolphins whales extreme activities and despite what you may have heard mild weather on the coasts hell we even have a island that produces a massive amount of salmon and has the largest biodiversity of wolves in the world at least 15 genotypes

Canada is so underrated. I've never been there, but I really want to go. Based on things I've learned about it, it seems like one of the best places in the world to live.

Exetremly underrated. I'm Canadian and I see memes created by Americans down in the USA like meanwhile in Canada and there is like a person with a pet polar bear. Yeah it was a little funny but also a lot of people in the USA will believe in such garbage. Canada knows more about the U.S.A

7 Portugal Portugal Portugal, officially the Portuguese Republic, is a country on the Iberian Peninsula, in Southwestern Europe.

The only bad thing about Portugal it's the Government everything else is AMAZING!

Highly over looked. Often thought of as a vassle of Spain. A country that is over a thousand years old with a ton of history and some of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. Some of the greatest sea food you will ever eat and home of one of the only good dictators. (he is dead)

The best country in the entire world!

Cabo the Roca - place where land ends and sea begins.
Sintra - simply a pearl. So many objects are located in this small city.
Fantastic food.
Not so many tourists and that's good.

10 Finland Finland

Everyone compared Finland always with Sweden saying like Sweden is the best country ever when Finland is the worst country ever. What's wrong with Finland?

Sweden is always at good places but why not Finland?

Ps:Sorry for bad English

Finlad is nordic country that was ruled by the Swedish and Russian before gaining independence. It has beautiful landscapes from farmside to lushy forests to hills and mountains.

Every kid thinks that Sweden is better.
that's not true at all.

11 Japan Japan Japan is an island country in East Asia in the Pacific Ocean. It lies off the eastern coast of the Asia Mainland (east of China, Korea, Russia) and stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea and near Taiwan in the southwest. ...read more.

Seriously, Japan goes through so much crap. Millions of people died under the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and yet newspapers put out crap like "We bombed the Japs! " and Americans could only cheer and scream for joy while innocents die and families have to bear the burden of their lost ones. Years later, they get earthquakes, tsunami's, and now a radiation leak. What do people do? Sit and turn their back on the suffering... People don't realize the incredible culture Japan has.

19Leviathan14, you have made a great list, Germany and Mexico are given so much stereotypes along with Japan. - Buddha

Japan is amazing, been there a few years ago. Its beautiful there and is just as good as any other country in the world. just like Germany Japan has its bad reputation to look out for but many people don't even think about Japan anymore and just consider Germany as the 'bad guy'(which is partly true). I don't think Japan is really UNDERrated but its not overrated at the same time. Many people love Japan including me and I don't get bashed for that like when I say that I love Germany. I love both countries and I am proud of it. They are both amazing and just as good as any other country. I'm not that kind of person that goes around hating on a country for what they did in the past or of that whats happening in the moment. I can dislike people when I know them but I wont judge a whole country based on their history and stereotypes. I like Japan, Germany, France, Norway, UK, USA, Mexico, Spain, Brazil, Portugal, Poland, the Czech Republic, Russia, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Canada, Egypt, ...more

Japan has to be the most hated and liked countries in the world (hated by the rich countries, liked by the poor countries). The only thing to hate about Japan is the stupid republic made after World War 2, who hides the good facts that Japan did and make up fake stories about the Japanese cruelty. Also, the republic can't think about good decision and do screwed up ideas. A humiliation to the people who died bravely in war and intelligent people who tried to change and protect the country. Other than that, there isn't much things to hate about Japan. I mean really.

Way underestimated. Good country and pioneer in video games!

12 Norway Norway Norway, officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a sovereign and unitary monarchy whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula plus the island Jan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard.

It's a very beautiful country with lots of things to see, though it's a very expensive country

Great economy. Happy people. Beautiful people. Beautiful scenery.

It has beautiful landscape, and is considered one of the countries with the most fjords and mountains. It is a very cold country with lots of snow, sometimes all year
Round.

Good looking flag

13 South Korea South Korea South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea, is a sovereign state in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula.

I hate the people who say "ooh, SK's the not-so-good version of China and Japan", where it's equally brilliant! I don't see why people miss it out like this. It's also got nothing to do with the North, so, by that logic, South Korea deserves a lot more recognition!

South Korea is the 8th richest country, yet no one knows them. It is as good as China and Japan, but people concentrate on the bigger countries.

Korea is underrated, because so much of their culture is mistakenly considered Japanese, when Korea introduced it to Japan first. Stuff like katanas, ninjas, certain foods

Definitely underrated. Why?
1.Foods and toothbrushes are already there for you in hotel, and great service.
2.Samsung
3.8th richest and 9th strongest military
Really UNDERRATED

15 Micronesia
16 Mongolia Mongolia

Lots of countries come to our country and steal out natural resources like uranium, coal, gold, silver, iron, bronze, and bunch of other stuff. IT is not fair because we are under pressure of our neighbors, especially, China! Did you know that Chinese males steal Mongolian women to make Mongolian population fewer so they can have our land, culture and people? Chinese government is super evil!

Mongolia is truly a land of beauty. Despite its small population, it should be considered a tourist hot spot. It has rich culture, rare wildlife such as wolves and snow leopards, and is often overlooked due to its location in between the popular countries of China and Russia.

A ridiculously beautiful country with the nicest people that I've ever met this country is so unique

One best answer, the shabu-shabu food and these people are super-friendly that people can get super cheap food here! Plus the Philippines never beaten Mongolia in
FIBA and way smarter than Filipinos and I'm Filipino!

I am Scottish. This country is immensely underrated. The Scottish Highlands have some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. Also good country for hikers + mountaineers.
10/10 should visit

Scotland has to be one of the most Unappreciated countries so tell me how many of you visited? It has the most beautiful scenery better than England still this country is looked upon on... - Animefan14

Scotland is awesome, we don't run around in the rain all the time eating haggis, that's stereotypical. And we don't always wear kilts. I've been to England, and they're similar.

I don't understand why Indonesia is so underrated. There's great food, such as different types of curries, sambal, and satay. Indonesia has an interesting culture, with walang kulit puppets, dances, and more. Biodiversity is high in Indonesia, with interesting animals such as the Komodo Dragon. Although I'm not Indonesian, I'd say that everyone should visit this country at least once in their life. - ethanmeinster

Hello from neighbouring Philippines! Votes for Indonesia. This country is underrated indeed, despite population, size, diversity, culture and history.

Thank you! Indonesia is beautiful and huge, with lots of amazing things there. And the food is REALLY underrated.

Colombia has a horrible, false reputation but it is a beautiful country, probably just as safe or even safer then other Latin American countries. Beautiful landscapes, people, everything. It is amazing.

Colombia is often over looked because of violence, drugs and crime but behind every thing that is said, Colombia is one of the countries with most fauna and flora. There are varieties of cultures and new things to learn everywhere. The best part are Colombians, their passion for their country and love for their nation is beautiful and contagious.

Beautiful music and beautiful scenery! Colombia is a large enough country to contain a huge variety of regions, climates, and cultures. Check it out!

29 Mexico Mexico

Correction: Mexico is not the most hated country around the americas, is the most envied country, South and central American envy Mexico because is more famous than their countries and have more culture and US people hates Mexico because they are ignorant.

Mexicans are the most hated people around Americas (That includes South America) due to the huge percentage of people with poor behavior, ethics, and attitude.

My homecountry, often being considered as underrated like Germany, people often connect Mexico to the Drug Wars at the border to the USA. But we're more than that! We are one of the strongest latinoamerican counry! - 19Leviathan14

Are you kidding me? Mexico is one of the most ambitious countries.This is the opposite of underrated.

Several other notable inventions were made by Hungarians who fled the country before World War II, including holography (Dennis Gabor), the ballpoint pen (László Bíró), the theory of the hydrogen bomb (Edward Teller), and BASIC programming language (John Kemény and Thomas E. Kurtz)

Financier George Soros was born in Hungary. He has given away some 45% of his net worth. In 2013, his charitable donations totaled US $734 million, according to Forbes.com, putting him No. 5 on their list of philanthropists, after Bill and Melinda Gates, Warren Buffett, and Mark Zuckerberg

42 Taiwan Taiwan Republic of China was established in 1912. After the Chinese Civil War (1949), the Chinese government relocated to Taiwan. Its capital was originally Nanjing but now it's Taipei. Mandarin is the most spoken language.

Not even member of the United Nations and mostly not recogniced as a sovereign country but a huge powerhouse in Asia, being one leiding exporter of high-tech goods. Together with South Korea considered "The little tigers of Asia". - 19Leviathan14

A lot of times Taiwan is mistaken by Thailand. Also due to the pressure from China, they are not even recognized as a ountry even though they have their own president elections, flag and national anthem. Although they all speak Chinese, Taiwan is very different from China and other Asain countries by its unique people, culture and food!

I'm Taiwanese-American, born in the U.S. but I have been traveling to Taiwan every year since I was a baby. The people are honestly, the nicest, most understanding people, the food is SO good, and the culture is so vibrant. My mom is from Dongshi so I always visited the countryside on my visits. It's a gorgeous country, and I'm so glad it's being recognized more and more.

Has higher gdp than most countries but isn't one in the first place...sad.

Honestly speaking Pakistan could have been in a bad situation now but they are strong economy wise and military wise. Their politicians are pigs, do not care a damn about their country or people. The politicians and certain public figures probably don't make things any easy for Pakistanis and the already tarnished image of Pak. This must change. If Pakistan is such a terrorist country there wouldn't be much left of it. There is plenty of beautiful things and people there. Pakistan is more developed than some of its neighbours, they are lucky to have such modernisation that actually improved their lifestyle and is making the place a safe and happy place to live and visit

People are so ignorant about Pakistan as a country when, if you actually have a look and not on the media and stuff, Pakistan has a mainstream side just like any other country can have. They produce excellent fashion, music, dramas, television, etc. They're people just like us with different lifestyles and cultures that's all.

If you look beyond the violence and oppression it's actually a very beautiful country.

This shouldn't be so low down the list

One of the best places on Earth, the economy is great, they have a political system that works, and their wildlife/nature is amazing. Oh yeah, and their all super-nice.

They are well-educated, intelligent, so kind, wealthy.
Even though New Zealand is such a small country, they actually got so many medals in London Olympic, also they have the world strongest national Rugby team.

Now they are storing their resource and using the intelligence to grow their wealth.

I feel sorry for New Zealand, I live in Australia and I realise that New Zealand is always called Australia or doesn't exist at all. I know a few people from there and they are brilliant, I've been there recently and most of the people there were much the same. All New Zealand gets in the spotlight is LOTR being filmed there, they deserve far more.

"A great little country that hardly anyone knows about"
