Most Underrated Countries


The Contenders: Page 2

21 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

As a person who lives in America, I could see how American people do not really know about South Korea. People think it's just middle country or poor country even though South Korea is actually one of the most developed country. Also SK has great history and attractions, Americans don't know them and just say SK is just not so good version of Japan and China. I'm not sure it is same in other western countries or asian countries, but I can say SK is so underrated in America.

It is known as the Phoenix of the world since it has sunken under the ocean and has been destroyed by wars 7 times . In advance, more.

Used to be in the shadow of Turkey and Israel, now being in the shadow of Syria. Lovely people and a nice culture. They did a good job becoming independent from imperial France and Great Britain. - 19Leviathan14

Rich history and culture

23 Serbia Serbia Serbia, officially the Republic of Serbia, is a sovereign state situated at the crossroads between Central and Southeast Europe, covering the southern part of the Pannonian Plain and the central Balkans.

Beautiful woman, crazy people...

24 Ukraine Ukraine Ukraine is a sovereign country in Eastern Europe, bordered by Russia to the east and northeast, Belarus to the northwest, Poland and Slovakia to the west, Hungary, Romania, and Moldova to the southwest, and the Black Sea and Sea of Azov to the south and southeast, respectively.

Ukraine is the largest country that's entirely in Europe. Which means there's a lot more to Ukraine than just Chernobyl

25 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.

26 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.

Taiwan is a part of China. - golin

27 Tanzania Tanzania Tanzania, officially the United Republic of Tanzania or simply U.R.T, is a large country in Eastern Africa within the African Great Lakes region.
28 Pakistan Pakistan Pakistan was established in 1947 and is located in South Asia. Islamabad is the capital city of Pakistan and is known as the world's second most beautiful capital city. Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar are other major cities of Pakistan. Urdu and English are official languages of Pakistan. World's second more.

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

No matter who says what, Pakistan is a very strong country. A nuclear power, one of the largest Army and top rated Airforce, very bright and English speaking work force, highly capitalistic and a trading nation.

Strong Military, Nuclear Weapons, High-tech weapons. The economy is also very underestimated.

That will be the day when people see past the ignorant media rhetorics

29 Ireland Ireland Formed in 1916 after the Easter uprising, Ireland is a small country with a population of roughly 5 million.

Always in the shadow of Great Britain, or should I say England? They make the second-best beer in the world after Germany and we're cheated by France in the 2010 Qualifiers, but we kicked the French asses for them haha! - 19Leviathan14

Ireland has all the green landscape

Turkey is bordered by eight countries with Greece and Bulgaria to the northwest; Georgia to the northeast; Armenia, more.

Was once one of the greatest powers in europe and still the ultimate power in the middle east. - AbdRahmanSalah

Turkey is just amazing, I go there every year, and it's the best in the world.

The powerhouse of the Near-East, the "China" of Europe, huge economical growth and a holiday paradise in the Mediterranean area after Greece's econmy screwed up. - 19Leviathan14

Filipinos are known for being hospitable.You can find the best nurses in this country.Also, they are rich in natural resources.The beaches are like paradise and you can really say that the water is as clear as crystal.Beautiful Philippines.

Most people know only about Malaysia and sort there are far more places to visit here, even we filipinos don't recognize the beauty of our country much.

Philippines is A beautiful country! ABUNDANT IN NATURAL RESOURCES!

This place is where my family came from I came from america but I'm not adopted

32 New Zealand New Zealand

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"

These comments about aid and stuff hurt me. - DontMessWithDaddylonglegs

34 United States of America United States of America The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the more.

Thank you. Please, everyone suddenly is hating on America now. Sure, we do a lot of horrible stuff as do all countries. Everyone talks about how we're "overrated" and whatnot, when really we do a lot of great things and if it weren't for us, a lot more countries would have fallen apart A WHILE AGO.

This should be higher. People claim that USA is overrated but the only people who overrate it are just a handful of Americans. The rest of the world HATES America! This is coming from a non-American

I'm not saying the USA isn't a great country, because it is but it definitely isn't underrated

They keep on going into everyones business like russia. That is why russians are all like we will make america bleed for what they have done.

35 North Korea North Korea The Democratic People's Republic of Korea, also known as North Korea, is a country in Eastern Asia. Its capital is Pyongyang. It is currently ruled by the dictator Kim Jong-Un, after inheriting the title from his father, Kim Jong-Il, who inherited it from his father, Kim Il-Sung. more.

Out of all the countries in the world, North Korea seems to have the best tourist attractions including starving families and a fat leader who is more of a hermit than me, and that's saying a lot. South of North Korea, is South Korea, which is clearly a highly powerful nation in many ways and is much better than North Korea, but that doesn't change the glorious fact that eventually the USA will fall and Kimmy will prevail!

This was sarcasm. North Korea is a failure.

The best better country of the best world

Guys stop the sarcasim of course North Korea is the best country in the world geez you guys are dumb

Not Korleea

I was tempted

36 Greece Greece Greece, officially the Hellenic Republic, also known since ancient times as Hellas is a country located in southeastern Europe.

Just because of the crisis, Greece is so underrated. Greece is an amazing country, with a beautiful language and friendly people.

Many people underrate them cause of their economic and bad political faults but they should remember that this nation was having the most of the today known scients developed 3000 ago.

The islands there are perfect

38 Romania Romania Romania is a sovereign state located in Southeastern Europe It borders the Black Sea, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Hungary, Serbia, and Moldova. It has an area of 238,391 square kilometres and a temperate-continental climate. With over 19 million inhabitants, the country is the seventh-most-populous member state more.

Probably the best and most beautiful country in Europe and most underrated in Europe and the world. It has breathtaking landscapes, the largest part of the Carpathians and Danube, kind and happy people, very beautiful and intelligent girls and the hard working poeple.

A great country. Ignore the sterotypes. Romania is a country worth visiting and severly underrated. Enough said!

39 Switzerland Switzerland Switzerland, officially the Swiss Confederation, is a federal republic in Europe . It consists of 26 cantons, and the city of Bern is the seat of the federal authorities . more.

Switzerland is one of the best countries I know

Beautiful mountains to hike, wonderful people, great food, lovely cities, ecofriendly, natural cool breeze, cool innovations, extremely peaceful, what more could you ask for?

40 Australia Australia Australia, officially known as the Commonwealth of Australia, is a country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands. Australia has a very warm climate and is very dry. The country's official language is English.

Okay I don't understand how the US was voted more underrated than Australia. Look I don't think Australia is underrated in any way nor overrated - It gets what it deserves in most cases. Australia's influence is felt all around the world and so far I have not seen a western country do as well as Australia in is connections with many countries. For example it is obvious that the country would have strong ties to North America with the United States and Canada (With Canadians even saying that they feel the closest to Australians) Europe with Britain and Ireland with two surprising connections as Australia has the largest speaking Greek population outside of Greece and the same can nearly be said for Poland. (Another surprise to many is that Germany allows dual citizenships for very special cases with the country) As Australia is close to Asia it is no doubt that it would get along extremely well with China, Japan and Korea, but little players in Asia like Hong Kong, Singapore, Papua New ...more

Greatest country in the world. Beautiful beaches, beautiful buildings, breathtaking natural wonders everything is amazing. The people are lovely, the weather is perfect and everyone is so inviting and also it is a very multicultural country. Obsessed with their sport and have some of the best arenas in the world. Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), Rod Laver Arena, Adelaide Oval, so many great arenas. The best sporting events; Australian Grand Prix, Australian Open, Melbourne Cup, Tour Down Under, Sydney to Hobart bike race and the Boxing Day Test Match. The cities are very interesting, amazing buildings and scenery. Melbourne is a must for any traveller, anything that is needed for a holiday is Melbourne. Food is also incredible! Especially the coffee!

Just full of beer drinking racist Yobbos
