Top 10 Most Beautiful Countries in the World

The Top Ten
1 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

Paris is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, but France is more than just visiting a few cities. Every region, every little village is so beautiful, different, and rich in history.

The French Riviera, the Occitanie, Normandy and Brittany, the Loire... everywhere is worth visiting.

Beautiful scenery. The French countryside, the city of Paris, the south of France which is warmer like Spain. French people are so very attractive and stylish. Outside of Paris, they are nicer than people give them credit for.

2 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

I'm half Japanese and half English and live in London. I visit Japan often, and once I'm there, I find it hard to leave. However, it's sad that the country is ruining its beautiful countryside and ancient buildings with massive crops and unattractive concrete buildings. Some people have realized this and have tried to stop it, but maybe it's because of the population decrease. I don't know. If you want to get away from these problems, visit Kyoto. It's a small city that has laws preventing the replacement of historical buildings, construction of buildings more than eight floors, and the erasing of countryside around it. It's so beautiful there. Even an American General in WW2 asked his higher command not to bomb, attack, or drop the atomic bomb on this city. YOU MUST GO!

3 Italy Italy (Italian: Repubblica Italiana) is a sovereign state and unitary parliamentary republic in south-central Europe.

Italy covers an area of 301,338 km². With almost 62 million inhabitants, it is the third most populous EU member state. Located in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, Italy shares... read more

Italy is a beautiful country with beautiful people. North Italy and South Italy are very different. The North is cold with mountains, and the South has beautiful beaches, farmland, and valleys where they grow wine.

I've been working as a flight attendant for twenty years and have had the chance to visit many beautiful countries, but every time I set foot in Italy, I discover new things to see. I'm not talking about the "same old" Rome, Florence, and Venice. Italy is composed of many different regions which were once independent and are now united under the same flag. So, it's like visiting various nations in just one country. Of course, Italy has its flaws, but it is definitely the most beautiful country in the world.

4 United States 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... read more

The US is beautiful. We have freedom, liberty, democracy, beaches, oceans, mountains, volcanoes, tundras, and, of course, trees, including some of the tallest in the world. History, grasslands, deserts, tropical places, forests, rocks, great technology, amusement parks, national parks, beautiful styles of buildings, sightseeing places, and fun, nature, snow, weather, hiking, rivers, lakes, entertainment, a lot of people, a rich and powerful country, big, successful, and even more than you can think of. The U.S. has everything you could want to enjoy. It's a popular country, which is why the US is the most beautiful, greatest, and best country in the world.

5 Canada Canada is a country in North America that is next to the United States, and it's the 2nd largest country in the world by area (size is 9.985 million km²). This country has 10 provinces, and 3 territories. Canada became a dominion on July 1, 1867. Its 10 provinces are: Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec,... read more

Canada is a beautiful country but has fallen in so many ways due to the corrupt, incompetent government of Justin Trudeau. He has created massive division, staggering federal debt, and is always involved in self-enrichment through his endless participation in corruption schemes and scandals.

Canada is beautiful and peaceful. Like the U.S., they have mountains, farmland, forests, and leaves that change in the fall. I especially love the Rockies, British Columbia, and Newfoundland. Canadians are kind and polite.

6 New Zealand New Zealand is an island country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean.
It is situated 1,500 kilometres (900 mi) east of Australia across the Tasman Sea and roughly 1,000 kilometres (600 mi) south of the Pacific island areas of New Caledonia, Fiji, and Tonga. New Zealand's capital city is Wellington,... read more

New Zealand is a beautiful peaceful country. Beautiful countryside with sheep and mountains. Kiwis are very chill and full of life. They have a cool accent and a great sense of humor.

In New Zealand, the whole world is on show. It boasts tropical islands, rolling green fields, magnificent mountains, fjords, snow and breathtaking ski fields, beautiful beaches, limestone caves, glow worms, rainforests, caverns, extraordinary rock features, volcanoes, hot pools, some of the world's most spectacular waterfalls, and even a desert. No other place has such concentrated diversity.

7 Greece Greece, officially the Hellenic Republic, is a country in Southeast Europe. It is situated on the southern tip of the Balkans, and is located at the crossroads of Europe, Asia, and Africa. Greece shares land borders with Albania to the northwest, North Macedonia and Bulgaria to the north, and Turkey... read more

I'm going to be very honest here. I've been to France. I've been to Italy. I've been lucky enough to travel all over. But there's just something about Greece that makes me love it more than the others. The landscape is absolutely breathtaking, with stunning mountains and beautiful beaches. The history is also incredible. You can literally go on a walk and stumble upon some sort of ancient ruin. It's steeped in history and culture. Also, for some reason, the food in Greece was my favorite out of everywhere in Europe. So fresh and super affordable. I once bought a full meal at a restaurant in Nafplio for 2 euros, which is about 4 CAD. If you were to go anywhere in Europe, I recommend Greece. I would love to spend the rest of my life there.

8 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... read more

Switzerland is beautiful and rich. The Alps are amazing, the cities are clean and well-kept. Beautiful forests covered in snow. It's kind of rich and snobby, but it's a great place to be.

Switzerland has everything to offer, from the Mediterranean area in Ticino to the medieval bridges of Luzern and the Rhine Valley, with the Alps dominating the landscape. It includes many different and beautiful cities, lakes, valleys, rivers, and mountains. Switzerland is like a union of smaller "countries," aka cantons, each being unique and different, making the country very diverse and interesting.

9 South Africa South Africa, officially the Republic of South Africa, is the southernmost sovereign state in Africa. It is bounded on the south by 2,798 kilometers of coastline of Southern Africa stretching along the South Atlantic and Indian Oceans, on the north by the neighbouring countries of Namibia, Botswana... read more

South Africa is beautiful and diverse, with so many diverse cultures living there. Nice beaches, cool cities, and beautiful savannas with cool animals.

South Africa is one of the most diverse places in terms of wildlife, landscape, people, and history. The people of South Africa take great pride in their country, and with places like The Kruger National Park, Cape Town, and Johannesburg, all holding a wide range of activities, this country deserves a visit by everyone.

Four of the ten oldest mountain ranges in the world are found in South Africa, including the breathtaking Waterberg and the stunning Makhonjwa range, the oldest in the world. Surrounded by Cape Town is one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature, Table Mountain. South Africa has been rated the finest wildlife destination on earth and is Africa's most biodiverse. The list goes on and on!

10 Iceland Iceland is a Nordic island country in the North Atlantic Ocean and the most sparsely populated country in Europe. Iceland's capital and largest city is Reykjavík, which (along with its surrounding areas) is home to over 65% of the population. Iceland is the only part of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge that... read more

No wonder Iceland is so expensive!

There is so much to see: the most beautiful landscapes, glaciers, food, and people! The waterfalls are amazing, as is the hidden beach, the Blue Lagoon, Reykjavik, and many other things!

Also, this one is in the top 10 of most beautiful countries in the world. People just don't know about Iceland. This is just a website where you can vote for yourself. My experiences say enough!

My favorite country.

The country is beautifully located and has rich beaches and people. I loved the people - all of whom were forever nice and kind. The landscape, the ice, and the ring road were all beautiful and captivating. Don't forget their airline too, which is cheap and welcoming.


The Contenders
11 Norway Norway, officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a sovereign and unitary monarchy in Northern Europe whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula plus the island Jan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard... read more

Beautiful, peaceful country with beautiful people. Tons of mountains, ocean, forests, and snow. The people are kind of shy, but they will warm up, especially with some alcohol.

Best food in the world, long daylight during summertime, and always an activity for everyone. All basic services are free, making it the safest place in the world to visit. Did I mention that you are allowed to walk wherever you want, also on private grounds, and camp wherever you want as long as the distance from a house/cabin is 150 m?

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

It is home of the famous Gurkhas whose name come from a small district in Nepal called Gorkha. The name Gorkha came from the legendary Indian sage Gorakhnath who did spent later part of his... read more

A country with diversity and beauty, ranging from lowlands to the highest peaks. The country itself is a world in itself, surrounded by the beautiful Himalayas and biodiversity. Lakes, rivers, glaciers, that refreshing breeze, and awesome warm welcoming faces all make Nepal a beautiful country. It's a country that is not only blessed by natural beauty but also by the kind-hearted people who love to live in harmony.

With fewer cheaters and great supporters, you forget your tension with the smile of people welcoming you to their place, and you feel alive looking at the gorgeous scenarios around.

Nepal is definitely one of the most beautiful countries in the world.

13 Spain Spain, or the Kingdom of Spain, is a country in southwestern Europe with parts of territory in the Atlantic Ocean and across the Mediterranean Sea. The largest part of Spain is situated on the Iberian Peninsula; its territory also includes the Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean, the Balearic Islands... read more

I'm Peruvian, and I love Spain. Spanish people are very nice and friendly, and their culture and architecture are great.

Spain is one of the most diverse countries in the world.

Spain is the most beautiful place I have ever been!

14 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

I was amazed when I visited this country. The stunning landscapes, the people, their culture, and the cuisine. People living there must feel so privileged, but they don't because they dream of sunny islands which can get so boring after a while.

Germany should definitely be higher up in the list, at least 6 or higher. First of all, Germany's history is just full of history! And the landscape, as well as their food, is remarkable. They are also known as one of the cleanest countries in the world. Whoever voted for Greece is... okay, because I agree their food is nice, but the weather is weird and the cities aren't really that nice, to be honest.

15 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... read more

There are a great number of landscapes in China. You can ski and enjoy a frozen world in northern China because it's very cold there. Similarly, you can swim in the sea and enjoy an interesting vacation in southern China because it's in a subtropical area. I believe that you can have a great time when you travel in China!

I am from China, and I think China is definitely one of the most beautiful nations in the world. China is one of the oldest countries in the world, so there are many interesting places to go, and I think China is really attractive for foreigners as well.

16 Austria Austria was Celtic (Hallstadt) then as Noricum, part of the Roman Empire, Alaric, who took over Rome, studied at a monastery near Vienna. In the Middle Ages, the Holy Roman Emperors moved to Vienna, then Austria became separate. Medieval documents from Eastern Europe as far as West Ukraine were often... read more

Considering the fact that in Austria, nature remains in peace, while other countries make a tourist attraction out of everything. In Austria, you can find pure nature and people who would not give this up for any price imaginable. Austria is Europe's New Zealand. If you take your time to reach all those places far away from Vienna, you would rank it as number one.

Between the alpine village and the beauty of Vienna, what is there not to love in Austria?

How is this all the way down here? It's so awesome there!

17 French Polynesia

French Polynesia, with about 120 of the most beautiful islands in the Pacific Ocean.

Spread amidst the Pacific Ocean, halfway between Tokyo and Chile's Santiago, are the French Polynesian archipelagos, five in total.

After visiting French Polynesia, and seeing its mixture of spectacular mountain peaks, wild and lush vegetation, and the clearest waters ever, any traveler will understand why Tahiti is often called the "Isle of Love" or "Paradise on Earth".

Splendid area, so many islands, volcanic and coral, surely the most beautiful atolls we have ever seen. Polynesians are so kind, tranquil, and they speak such a typical French, so charming.

18 Botswana Botswana, officially the Republic of Botswana, is a landlocked country in Southern Africa. Botswana is topographically flat, with up to 70 percent of its territory being the Kalahari Desert. It is bordered by South Africa to the south and southeast, Namibia to the west and north, and Zimbabwe to the... read more
19 South Korea South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea (ROK), is a country in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula and sharing a land border with North Korea. Its western border is formed by the Yellow Sea, while its eastern border is defined by the Sea of Japan. South Korea claims... read more

I can see the sunrise from my hotel room. It rises up behind the city. Very beautiful. And the people are nice too! Cool country!

South Korea is a very beautiful country, and they have the most wonderful K-pop band, BTS. They are very friendly, sweet, and cute.

Korea is a powerful and exciting country. It is the opposite of Japan.

20 Costa Rica Costa Rica, officially the Republic of Costa Rica, is a country in Central America, bordered by Nicaragua to the north, Panama to the southeast, the Pacific Ocean to the west, the Caribbean Sea to the east, and Ecuador to the south of Cocos Island.

Simply the best place on this planet.

21 United Kingdom The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly shortened to United Kingdom, UK or Britain is a Sovereign State located of the Northwestern coast of Europe. It is a Parliamentary Constitutional Monarchy currently lead by Monarch Queen Elizabeth II and its current prime minister is... read more

England, Scotland, and Wales are absolutely beautiful countries filled with breathtaking landscapes.

Places like York, Edinburgh, Bath, Conwy, Chester, Lichfield, Cambridge, Oxford, Canterbury, Exeter, Durham, Ely, Lincoln, Salisbury, Truro, Winchester, etc., truly look like something out of an English fairytale or novel.

The rolling countryside of England, the landscapes and castles of Scotland, and the verdant scenery of Wales are much celebrated. The thatched cottages of England and the castles of all the British Isles have inspired immense creativity in poetry and painting.

The countryside manor houses and the beautiful Cotswolds of England are not only stunning but are also filled with treasures and history spanning thousands of years.

Even the more industrial cities like Manchester, Glasgow, Liverpool, etc., have their own beauty and interesting history.

22 England England, previously the Kingdom of England, is a constituent country of the United Kingdom along with Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

England can trace its history as far back as the 10th century, but modern England didn't start till the Norman Invasion of 1066. In 1535, England annexed... read more

England is one of the most underrated countries in Europe, in my opinion, simply because everyone goes to London and thinks they've seen England. In reality, London was bombed in WW2 and lost 60% of its beauty. England has so many beautiful landscapes. There's nothing more that represents civilization than the English countryside with its quaint villages, churches, cottages, manor houses, etc., all built from local craftsmanship and tradition for centuries.

England is a green and pleasant land. It boasts stunning landscapes, villages, architecture, historic sites, coastlines, beaches, castles, countryside houses, landscaped gardens, etc. The world's history runs directly through England, and England itself has been one of the most influential nations in history, having experienced some of the most tremendous historic ages that produced some of the greatest architectural styles.

23 Scotland Scotland is a country that is part of the United Kingdom and covers the northern third of the island of Great Britain. Scotland is the most mountainous, and least densely populated country in the United Kingdom.

What! Scotland is amazing! It is a land that hosts the UK's last remaining real natural zones! From the Outer Hebrides to the Scottish Highlands to Loch Ness to Mount Ben Nevis, Scotland is magnificent. It is such a shame that it has always been hiding behind England's and Ireland's backs. Scotland forever.

Wait, what?! No. 21?! Beautiful countryside, coastline, mountains. Stunning place. Should be top 5.

Hauntingly beautiful. Marking it below its neighbors to the south and the UK as a whole beggars belief.

24 Philippines The Philippines, officially the Republic of the Philippines, is an archipelagic country in Southeast Asia. It is situated in the western Pacific Ocean and consists of around 7,641 islands that are broadly categorized under three main geographical divisions from north to south: Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao... read more

The thing is, the Philippines might be somewhat poor but it has so many beautiful places. Unlike Japan, which has traditional buildings and unique cultural aspects, the Philippines excels in the beauty of normal scenery such as pristine beaches, mountains, and other awesome landscapes. Filipinos strive for success, and the result? Epic malls, outstanding singers, and youth congregations that exemplify the true meaning of values. Also, they have the most beautiful people, which is obvious in their dramatic telenovelas compared to the usual American soap operas and complex Korean shows. The Philippines is not only beautiful. It's the BEST.

25 Bhutan Bhutan, officially the Kingdom of Bhutan, is a landlocked country in South Asia at the eastern end of the Himalayas. It is bordered by China to the north and India to the south. Nepal and Bangladesh are located in proximity to Bhutan but do not share a land border. The country has a population of over... read more
