Top 10 Countries with the Friendliest People
Canadians are usually kind, friendly, compassionate, self-disciplined, unassuming, and tolerant. However, it is the unfriendly attitude of people here in Toronto that really needs to change. Hubris doesn't mean greatness!
Canadians are stereotyped as the nicest people on Earth. I've lived in Canada for my whole life and I can definitely say that this is true!
Canadians are called the most polite and have very little war. We are pround of our country and will strive for the best!
There are very nice people there, but, Justin Bieber is not nice.
Norwegians are one of the friendliest and kindest people in the world. They accept people of all races, therefore, making them one of the least racist people in the world. They are also friendly to tourists and foreigners, helping them if they need some help.
Lovely people, lovely country. Norwegians are one of the nicest people anyone can meet. They are very friendly to anyone; they do not discriminate others.
Norwegians are really friendly and kind. They respect all races; they don't hate anyone.
The best country ever
Greeks are the best people! They are friendly,kind and sooo sweet! I've been to many countries but Greeks are special ones.
I love greek people. Moved to Greece 1 year ago
I love Greece. Respect from China.
I am Chinese and I think Indians, especially Sikhs are some of the friendliest people in the world. Sikhs are generally kind, courteous and charitable people. I never met a Sikh I didn't like.
"I traveled to India a year ago, asked a person way towards Chandani Chowk. He invited me to his home, we had the lovely Indian tea, and he was with me all the time we travelled through Chandani Chowk." -John Bruski, BBC World News
This is how friendly Indians are.
Nicer than canada, people always say how nice canadians are but a lot of them are rude and get angry at you easily, and wont help strangers or anything. (And I'm a canadian! )
India's not known for their happiness and hospitality so what's with this ranking? Indians are actually the most miserable souls
We are generally friendly and kind, but also very reserved and Shy. So it might be a problem getting to befriend us, but Try to start and talk too us and we will be happy to answer and be social. P.S people never talk in the busses so don't talk there (;
From your random guy at Aarhus. Jutland
Denmark should have been in the top ten at least. I have been in Denmark and the people are very friendly and helpful.
Iceland is actually the safest country in the world to live in. I know lots of people say the best country in the world to live in is the US, mainly cause of the freedom rights there. But look at Iceland and its people. It's like no one here wants to commit a crime. The Icelandic is more friendly than the world thinks.
Icelanders are so loyal. I have an OC named Fridrika and she was made to represent most Icelanders, so she has a good sense of humour and loves people just like real icelanders LOVE you ICELAND greetings from Australia!
Should be number 1
How is Norway above the United States? Of course, we have jerks here, but the majority of the people are awesome! Especially in the deep south.
They are very friendly. Don't listen these two idiots with comments. I'm living on Canadian side of the border. But visited 25 countries in USA. Nice people. New Mexico is little less friendly. California, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, Nevada, Washington, New England, New York, Florida, Texas... Best people ever. With respect to Canada. Both are very nice.
The US people are nice because they get TRICKED by these people from other countries. A person from another country will ask an American do you mind going out and getting their umbrella then when they come back. OPPs their WALLET is gone. What I'm saying is the AmericanS are too friendly
Eh it depends on the state. I am American, and I believe that South Carolina is a happy, friendly state.
Some confuse the politeness with traditional behaviour. Of course, there are many Japanese people who are very friendly but due of still being a strict and conservative society it seems they're always friendly. The fake smile as example can mean everything. Examples -
- The person is nervous and doesn't want to lose its face.
- He/She wants to sell you something.
- You did something awful and he/she actually thinks you're rude. etc.
Japan people are very much friendly they talk to people in nice and pleasant way.
Every Japanese I have met so far are very nice and polite!
What how are they so giggly and polite all the time crazy...
Yes...Australians are friendliest people..I have Australian friend and he is so kind and friendly..
Come here and see, we have the friendliest people!
Australians are probably the most kindest people you will ever meet.
Worst country ever, Philippines is not way friendly many Filipinos allows bullying and harassing them, (Example: The offensive word: bobo, dulldog, tanga, gago, king ina mo, death-to-ching-chong etc.) you think them they are friendly but there a fraud using or being a English speaker. If you want to friend a Filipino, many other countries living but they are trapped and cursed. So goodluck to enjoy wasting your time until you grow old and losing money, job and family.
Definitely should be number 1 it has the most beautiful women in the world (one of which I married by the way) a very loving and friendly people.
Philippines have hospitable and friendly people oh come on this should be no. 1
Yes because I'm from united states this place is very hospitable.
We like French with or without foreign origins. Despite what you made read here or there, young people speak English well but also other European languages or even Russian, Japanese, Chinese, Arab.. especially in shops of large and medium cities. What I like with French, they have a lot of parties everywhere celebrating any anniversary or else, singing, dancing and inviting you to join... I did not find that in some other countries around.
I like French people, I visited about 8 different regions and they are all different (like their architecture), they are more or less open at the first contact, but some minutes after the icebreaker, they are friendly and warm. Easily they offer you a glass of wine or cup of coffee, don't refuse it.
A really nice melting pot of lots of different cultures and origins.
In France over 167 different countries are represented which makes France the most mixed European country.
And France with its different territories all over the world gives you such a marvelous panel of people.
I was in Paris last November and apart from one person at a Metro Station ticket office, everyone was very friendly, polite and helpful - I think it may have something to do with being polite as a tourist to begin with? France and French are too much stereotyped- And I'm British.
I'm walloon and we're nice. Nicer than our neighbours. Except perhaps the Netherlands (great guys).
The opposite of rude.
Finnish people are friendly and helpful, but they are very shy and quiet.
Very nice people
Italy covers an area of 301,338 km2. With almost 62 million inhabitants, it is the 3rd most populous EU member state.

Existing as a unitary State since the Risorgimento (renaissance or resurrection) in 17 March 1861, Italy is a republic since the abolition of the Italian monarchy by referendu, in 1946. ...read more.
How is New Zealand not on the top? They have some of the most friendly people ever in existence! They are very welcoming and hospitable.
Should be at the top. Number one. The country is beautiful and people's heart are too. God bless and take care of New Zealand.
New Zealand should be number 1! They're friendly, laid-back, humble, caring and funny. What's not to love?
The best and nicest people I have ever met.
I visited both:
Las Palmas de Gran Canaria for 15 days and they were the best days in life by all measures. Every one was happy, helpful and amazing. Yep, they don't speak much English but that was not an issue for me cos I was able to manage with my little Spanish.
Madrid was for only a day cos I had a long layover. It was wonderful city with wonderful nice people as well.
I don't know why Spain is not number 1 on this list.
In every place I was: airport, supermarket, malls... Every one was ready to help no matter how busy they were.
Cops, especially Policia Nacional were super friendly, helpful and professional. The same thing applies for Policia Frentera = immigration police.
I felt I'm home and I'm really missing that wonderful country but all I know is that it's in my list any time I get vaca tion.
England was a real opposite and a terrible miserable jail.
Everybody was angry, rude, mean and jerk.
I felt like I was in the custody of the Soviet KGB.
Met Spanish guy(online) and he treated me so nicely even though on my bad points.It gave me a feel like how he could be so nice and so I found no more way to embrace his swag.It was really an extreme feel that made me long for him the whole day.I am still missing that one Spanish guy.
Love is in the air!
Sri Lanka is a very friendly country with the most friendliest people. Sri Lankan people treat foreigner like their own siblings.
I've visited most countries in Europe and the Irish were the friendliest and most generous people by far. They're very genuine, I guess I'm partial to them because my grandmother was from there and was the kindest person I've ever known.
This should be so much higher! I'm from the United States and when I went to Ireland the first time I was shocked by how friendly and kind the people were. I'll be going on my 4th trip to Ireland next month and couldn't be more excited
Why isn't Ireland in the top 10? When I visited Ireland I was shocked that mostly everybody was so kind! I've visited England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales but Ireland was the kindest.
Even if their flag is like Italian one, Irish are friendly people, not like the arrogant Italians, who we didn't expect to find, but the reality is far from movies.
