Top 10 Dirtiest Countries In the World

The Top Ten
1 India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world. Its capital is New Delhi. Some other major cities are Mumbai, Chennai, and Ahemdabad. The most spoken languages are Hindi and English, but there are 22 official Indian languages.

India has a beautiful culture, a truly peaceful and harmonious national religion known as Hinduism and great food! But however, there is a sad truth that this country struggles with immense poverty in many areas. Almost half of the population defecates/poops in public because they are too poorly educated to know how to use a toilet, and many also litter and spit on the streets as they are unaware of the risks of plague and disease. This is also prevalent in other neighbouring countries near India such as Pakistan and Bangladesh, who also struggle with high amounts of poverty and poor education.

I believe that India is not dirty but actually, Indian people are dirty. Cities like Delhi, Varanasi, Kolkata are like dump yards where you can't even breathe with ease and it is because of careless Indians living there. They are dirty, careless, lazy and superstitious. Indians follow a simple rule - "We are dirty, Our surroundings should also be dirty". Indians are like pigs living in garbage heaps. They don't bathe regularly, throw garbage wherever they like. For Indians their entire country is a dump yard. No body takes responsibility for their personal sanitation. They are reproducing like rats and exploiting nature for earning more. India is like a hell on the earth which will go worse in future.

The dirtiest country in the world very poor and on poverty has millions of beggars who poop on the road. They have no toilet there. Electricity in city places goes off at certain times of the day. No electricity at all in rural places. They live with animals like animals. Animals like cows, goats and sheeps walk around freely on the roads. Street thugs with daggers would chop off a man's head based on their religion or if someone insulted their leader (usually someone they idolize like a movie star). Then there's corruption in the top ranks. And poverty in every part of the country. Wouldn't say the dirtiest because there are worse countries in Africa.

I am Indian and I agree this is the filthiest country on the planet. cows, dog other animals roaming on the streets going everywhere people go on the street railways tracks in open in general sewers are overflowing open drainage system, pigs, garbage air population this is complete catastrophe people calling beautiful are either ignorant patriots who don't want to acknowledge the problem or haven't seen the real side politicians are really corrupt they only care to bag money in no measure is taken! I'm glad Google put it on number 1 at least somewhere it's no. 1!

2 Pakistan Pakistan was established in 1947 and is located in South Asia. Islamabad is the capital city of Pakistan. Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar are other major cities of Pakistan. Urdu and English are official languages of Pakistan. World's second highest peak (K-2) and ninth highest peak (Nanga Parbat) are located in Pakistan.

Slow down there bunny buns. Pakistan has cleaner places than some places I've seen in the west e.g. Islamabad, defense areas and northern Pakistan can be the most lush places ever. Pakistan needs a system for rubbish collection off streets and homes but what are you guys expecting? Pakistan ain't got bin men lmao.

My parents are from Pakistan and honestly every time I visit. All you see if chickens and cows crossing the road or some dead goat on the floor with trash everywhere like come on people littering is bad... smh... not to mention they think it’s normal to toss trash on the street and then after that they burn the trash which is worse cause it stinks...

The dirtiest country in the world.I think it will overtake india and be the first dirtiest in the world within months..
i think that the country is beautiful and as it was also a part of india in the recent century but the people living there are really dirty minded and full of terrorism

It is a disgusting place...Not to be mean,it's the people's fault. They don't care about their country, they just want to put down other countries and show their country is better. Also, crime rates are very high in Pakistan which also makes it very worse to live in it. In my opinion, with all due respect,I think Pakistan should be number 1.

3 Somalia Somalia, officially the Federal Republic of Somalia, is a country in the Horn of Africa. The country is bordered by Ethiopia to the west, Djibouti to the northwest, the Gulf of Aden to the north, the Indian Ocean to the east, and Kenya to the southwest. Somalia has the longest coastline on Africa's mainland. Its terrain consists mainly of plateaus, plains, and highlands. Hot conditions prevail year-round, with periodic monsoon winds and irregular rainfall. Somalia has an estimated population of around 15 million, of which over 2 million live in the capital and largest city Mogadishu, and has been described as Africa's most culturally homogeneous country. Around 85% of its residents are ethnic more.

Whoever said that somalia is a trash can, please stfu. There are some places in somalia that are dirty, but it really is beautiful

Dirtiest country in the world's list this country's name should really in 1st place.This is really very dirty country.

I agree with Google, Somalians don't bath regularly, what more their sorrounding

Somalia = trash can

4 Bangladesh Bangladesh, officially the People's Republic of Bangladesh, is a country in South Asia. It is the eighth-most populous country in the world, with a population exceeding 163 million people in an area of either 148,460 square kilometres (57,320 sq mi) or 147,570 square kilometres (56,980 sq mi), making more.

It was Dirty. But it's changing it's dirt musk very progressively. If you visit now it may seem very wonderful to you. You'll love it. People of Bangladesh are so clean by heart and beauty. Dirt is a creation from nature. Bangladesh is going to be one of the cleanest countries in the world very soon.

Bangladesh is a developing country. If u go now or later you will love it. People who call it poor are wrong.
Doesn't matter who is poor matters on personality. It is filled with wonderful creatures and it's all so beautiful.

Bangladesh is a country of Indian subcontinent, to the east of India on the Bay of Bengal, is a South Asian country marked by lush greenery and many waterways.

Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and Myanmar they are all the same!

It is currently ranked 160th in the Institute for Economics & Peace's Global Peace Index, making it one of the most dangerous countries in the world (behind only South Sudan, Afghanistan, and Syria).

Iraq is not all the bad things people say. Before iraq was a beautiful country until other countries made conflict, and also your racist because my family came from this country

Iraq is just a complete desert, it gets dirty a lot because they get frequent sandstorms.

Really horrible country

The Philippines covers an area of 300,000 km2 (120,000 more.

Philippines is an icky and disgusting country. Everywhere especially in the cities people just throw their trash anywhere. Filipinos have zero discipline. No wonder Manila is super filthy, they don't even bother trying to clean their city. Manila is also filled with so many slum areas that make the city even more dirtier. Philippines is a dirty and disgusting country in every aspect. The citizens are so lazy that they just throw their trash everywhere, such undisciplined people.

I vote not to underestimate my country but it is the way to comment here.
I'm a Filipino. I agree, in all of the words you trashed to us. But here's my opinion, Philippines is a country with 7,641 islands overall. So in short, our country is far away and separated from each other so we don't have cooperation with the people living here. There were trash on some places but do not include all. You should be ashamed in places which doesn't even have an island but not concerned in their dirty country.

Philippines is pretty much a tidy place. But besides if you go to YOUR province then it will be dirty. The country is part tidy and part dirty at the same time. Just look at Tondo and other dirty parts of the Manila neighborhood. That's just plain disappointing to see such a smelly traffics and some trash on the concrete ground.

I must say, I haven't been there; but 2 of my uncles, their wife and children and this rich Filipino would agree and one of the uncles and his daughter said it is not clean.

This one uncle likes the Phillipines, but can say bad stuff about the Phillipines, and his daughter lived there for most of her life and she loves the Phillipines, and said some parts are dirty.

9 Iran Iran, also known as Persia, officially the Islamic Republic of Iran, is a sovereign state in Western Asia. The capital city is Teheran and the major city is also Tehran. The country's official language is Persian.

The country's rich cultural legacy is reflected in part by its 22 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the third-largest number in Asia and eleventh-largest in the world. Iran is a multicultural country comprising numerous ethnic and linguistic groups. more.

I think the guy yelling stuff is a bot, but there are some dirty areas. However, overall, this place deserves to be MUCH lower on the list.

Go to iran if u want to be killed or be looted the grace of your girls

Dirty country with dirty people

ME either I love this country

10 Venezuela Venezuela, officially the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, is a federal republic located on the northern coast of South America.

A Venezuelan flatmate: He washes his socks and underwear once a week, shirts once a month, pants and outfits never washed in 1 year... never clean the apartment's shared areas - stole shampoo and shower gel from the hotel he works, never use soap (bar or liquid) to wash hands after using the toilet... he smells like hell...

Caracas is very dirty don't go there

The Contenders
11 China China, officially the People's Republic of China, is a country in East Asia. It is the world's most populous country, with a population of more than 1.4 billion. China spans five geographical time zones and borders 14 countries, the second most of any country in the world after Russia. Covering an area more.

Smelly, chemically polluted with heavy metals and other industrial waste. Don't dare drink the water. Smog so fowl shortens life spans. These are just the things we know about. The CCP hides an immense amount of environmental atrocities.

Speaking strictly about their food preparation, STAY AWAY. They not only understand "clean" they don't respect their customers enough to make sure the food is clean and prepared properly.

When people think of China being dirty, they think of just the sweatshops there being dirty. Well, no, so much of such a very densely populated country is just dirty.

I don't believe india is on No 1! Like its not acceptable so I believe pakistan or china should be No 1

12 Libya Libya, officially the State of Libya, is a country in the Maghreb region of North Africa bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the north, Egypt to the east, Sudan to the southeast, Chad and Niger to the south, and Algeria and Tunisia to the west.

Some other major cities in Albania are Durrës, Elbasan, Vlorë, and Shkodër. Albania gained its independence in 1912. more.

These people call pakistani people dirty. What about themselves? I live in Scandinavia and never visited another so dirty country as Albania.

We aren't that Dirty.. I lived in Tirana and people recycle more than lots of other Nations, such as Portugal

Albanian recycling: Throwing litter on streets and in the Mediterranean sea.

Very unhygienic people.

16 Brazil Brazil, officially the Federative Republic of Brazil, is the largest country in both South America and Latin America. At 8.5 million square kilometers (3,300,000 sq mi) and with over 214 million people, Brazil is the world's fifth-largest country by area and the sixth most populous. Its capital is Brasília, more.

This one should be highest in the list. People takes out rubbish at the streets as it is common and fair. General attitude of "it's not my concern". Dirtiest and smelliest rivers at the cities; the sewers are dejected at the beaches. At Carnival the country turns a giant trash bin. People are always trying to take advantage at the situations, so if there are rules of any kind they gladly disregard it, including the correct disposal of trash.

Okay, it might not be the dirtiest country in the world, but man the country seriously suck, there's litter everywhere, the people have no ethics. Just compare the streets of Brazil with the ones in Argentina, Chile and Uruguay on street view and you'll see the difference.

Brazil is hell. People there are horrible and evil

Produce the most smog and pollute the world with plastic and cancer products... mad cow disease. Less people compared to China but use the most gasoline... Polluting the world with GM crop.

The people here are so stupid and making anything they want to do, specially throwing garbages anywhere.

The surroundings are dirty and even worse are the minds of the people. Racism and so on.

Are you joking. The USA is the safest cleanest country in the world. Everyone dreams of living here.

19 Mexico Mexico, officially the United Mexican States, is a federal republic located in North America. The country is located between the U.S. and Central America, and is known for its Pacific and Gulf of Mexico beaches and its diverse landscape of mountains, deserts, and jungles.

Mexico is an excellent place for tourism but when it come to education it is very poor. The roads to are also not that clean

Ugliest country I've ever seen Because there is always crimes happening in Mexico and people there kill people.

Some of the buildings were having a very huge absolutely messy destruction in Mexico.

Mexico Is a nice country because they have really good tacos and nice statues

I'm from Singapore and I Approved this! When I visited Jakarta and Manado for church ministerial work, the citizens laugh at me when I asked "where's the trash can? " and they said in Indonesian (I understand a little bit) "you don't need it. Just dump it whatever you want" Also their brain is filled with garbage though (just the people I mentioned. No offense)
What's wrong with this people? I will die in dysentry if I live in Indonesia

I’ve been here (Bali and Lombok) and I saw locals leaving plastic bags (of that meat balls with sauce that they eat) and glass bottles (beers and even petrol) at the beach. Houses, roads, empty lands, all surrounded by rubish. The last event in Lombok at Segar beach (04/02/2018) left thousands of plastic small things around the area (I have photos) and those ones were all locals. They are dirty, they don't care about their own land and blame tourists. So sad! I don't wanna come back again!

I visited Jakarta. The city square looks good but, the urban area very dirty. I also went to Semarang. The village looks clean. And Surabaya, I think Surabaya is the cleanest city. Surabaya had good sidewalk better than Jakarta

When I went to Batam I look out of the bus window and its like the Democratic Republic Of The Congo burnt tree's and a lot of sand when I got to the hotel I accidentally drank the tap water in the bath and I got Nausea, Dizziness and Fever.
Oh why did I visit

Protected areas such as Cross River National Park and Yankari National Park have waterfalls, dense rainforest, savanna, and rare primate habitats. One of the most recognizable sites is Zuma Rock, a 725m-tall more.

Nigeria is very dirty because it is full of impoverished people who throw their trash everywhere. The fact that Nigeria has the most homeless people out of any country in the world makes Nigeria even more dirtier.

It is not that dirty

22 Guatemala Guatemala, officially the Republic of Guatemala, is a country in Central America bordered by Mexico to the north and west, the Pacific Ocean to the southwest, Belize to the northeast, the Caribbean to the east, Honduras to the east and El Salvador to the southeast.

The unfortunate result of overindustrialization and totalitarianism. The dictator does not care about us or the kind of environment we live in. He doesn't care that the pollution is so bad that it is becomming a SAFETY ISSUE! All he cares about is staying in power and sending a JAS-39 or 2 to bomb us every few days!

I understand poverty exists there, but it costs nothing to clean up, they seem to of given up! Filthy place
