Most Hated Asian Countries

The Top Ten
1 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

They're always making up their original history and accusing Japan for what Japan didn't do. Of course Japan did unfavorable things during WWII, which Japan has admitted and deeply regretted, however why should it apology for more than what it really did? South Korean people are all brainwashed by their government into believing anything miserable about their country is all attributable to Japan. The government had or still has hidden the fact from its people that it has already received a tremendous amount of money for war compensation from Japan, which it used up for building its financial foundation after the war. The alleged comfort women should ask their own government to distribute that money. They should know that they have been deceived by their own government regarding this issue.

2 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 Juche leader Kim Jong-Un, after inheriting the title from his father, Kim Jong-Il, who in turn inherited it from his father, Kim Il-Sung... read more

Whoever voted South Korea over this stupid, horrific communist dictatorship that is only run by the leader is absurd. Sure, they have a teensy tiny point with their nearly non-existent "hatred" between SK and Japan, but NK has propaganda against not only those 2, but also basically every NATO country all because Kim Jong Un said so. Seriously? I believe that this nation is more similar to a terrorist group than any other country. Heck, they care more about nuclear weapons than the actual well-care of the nation. South Korea is only here because of people who only care about the past. Whatever, I'm done ranting about this horrid "nation" called North Korea.

3 China China, officially known as the People's Republic of China, is a country located in East Asia. It is the world's second most populous country, boasting a population of more than 1.4 billion. China spans five geographical time zones and shares its borders with 14 countries, making it second only to Russia... read more

I'm a Chinese myself, with such a complex history and stand out government, crap that happens today in China is not Chinese people's fault. Things about bad manners, spiting and stare (not sure about stare though, country that doesn't have much immigrants has things like this happen), we Chinese don't like it either. But simply put, us peasant people (majority of us Chinese) were struggling with simply survival for almost 2 centuries, when there's no foreign nations try to kill us, our own people will try to kill each other other nothing. With history like this, people become selfish, and they told their kids to do the same, because that's how you survive.

4 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 the official languages of Pakistan. The world's second-highest peak (K-2) and ninth highest peak (Nanga Parbat)... read more

This country should be wiped of the surface of the earth.. As far as I'm concerned it should be the only country on this list, they live in the dark ages, their people are despicable lying ignorant and lets just say words can't quantify the worlds hatred for these lot... The world would be a better place without them...Shame on PAKISTAN

To all those narrow minded thinkers who say that Pakistanis are terrorists, I just want to ask them that:
Was Adolf Hitler (30 million victims) a Pakistani?
Was joseph stalin (40 million victims) a Pakistani?
Was mao zedong (60 million victims) a Pakistani?
Was benito mussolini (250000 victims) a Pakistani?
Was george bush (2 million victims just in Iraq) a Pakistani?
70 million people died in World war 2, was it started by a Pakistani?
No my dears of course they were not Pakistanis and not even Muslims, so first of all remove this double standard of terrorism from your bloody minds and those who think that 9/11 attacks were controlled from Pakistan, you should also remove this out of your mind, because its proved that 9/11 were done internally by your own bloody government just because they were getting no good reason to enter Afghanistan,.,.,.,.,.,.,.,.,.,.,.,. Think a thousand times before calling us terrorists,

5 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 voted to comment.
Japan should not be here. I visited Japan and everyone was so nice, helpful and friendly to me and my friends even though we were foreigners. I even stayed with a host family and they all treat me with such care and kindness. Most Japanese I met are very polite people. They may come across as cold and aloof due to their reserved nature. But my friend chatted with this old Japanese lady. She eagerly replied and even have her a gift the next day. My friend even lost his phone in the train but the police station contacted him a few hours later and returned his phone back to him.

6 India India, officially known as the Republic of India, is a country located in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area and the most populous country, with over 1.4 billion people. Additionally, it is the most populous democracy in the world... read more

So, I am from India and I'd start off by stating the things which I hate about this country as this is about hate. The uneducated people are the problem of our country. Illiteracy causes them to do things which harm the country on whole. Yes, people are narrow minded.. but not all of us are! I promise that you'd be welcomed warmly in my country. I mean how can you expect ALL the people in a country to be good! Masses bear hate Pakistan because it's planted in their minds that all the terrorist activities are by Pakistanis, to which I strongly disagree. Terrorism doesn't have a nationality. My country is trying to grow. We're trying to break the walls of narrow mindedness, racism, and all the other social practices which are irrelevant! We've comes miles against sexism and I am proud of it. I hate it when people are narrow minded but hey? They were never taught to have open minds! These people are usually of older generations who were not educated properly when they were young. We faced 200 years of imperialism from the British. They were racist then. But you know what? Although British are solely to be blamed for the pain and hardships our people went through, I don't hate British. I actually like them a lot. Past is in the past anyways. What I am trying to say is, stop judging the book by it's cover, come and check it out! India has the most diverse couture in the world and I swear here the Muslims are treated equally. Heck, we don't care about your religion or nationality or anything! If you're good to us, we'll be good to you. Simple. We're trying to improve. I promise we are, and I'm sure we'll get better. Till then, let's sit back and stop judging, yeah?

7 Israel Israel, officially the State of Israel, is a country in Western Asia. It is situated on the southeastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea and the northern shore of the Red Sea, and shares borders with Lebanon to the north, Syria to the northeast, Jordan to the east, and Egypt to the southwest; it is also bordered by the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip to the east and west,... read more

Israel hates Muslims. They always have. The government build settlements in Palestinian land, even though it's against human rights. They kill Palestine in there own homes and when Palestine retaliates they get called as terrorists
. America follows them like a lost puppy and spends billions on the country. I respect all religions and am british. However most people just don't like admitting the truth since Israel is home to some of the most holiest places in Christianity, Islam and Judaism.
Israel is very sneaky and small but very powerful. They would most likely unexpectedly cause world war 3.

Let's face it, everyone hates each other. We all act like a wolf to another human. We have our own list of friends and enemies. Impossible to create peace in a world like this, or maybe peace was never an option. Some of you just didn't care. Only a small number of people on the internet actually care and accept other race with open arms. And the majority of people clearly express their hatred towards other. Just face it, humans aren't angels no matter how good they are.

8 Saudi Arabia Saudi Arabia, officially the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), is a country on the Arabian Peninsula in Western Asia. It has a land area of about 2,150,000 km2 (830,000 sq mi), making it the fifth-largest country in Asia, the second-largest in the Arab world, and the largest in Western Asia. It is bordered by the Red Sea to the west; Jordan, Iraq, and Kuwait to the north; the Persian Gulf, Qatar and... read more

The royalty rules with an iron fist yet there's been cases where the royalty indulge in parties with sex and drugs? If you're not an Arab Muslim male, you're going to be discriminated in some way.

I think most of the problems with this country is due to the government (besides the gulf syndrome where every rich person feels the need to flaunt in every way). From supporting terrorist groups (funds groups, has similar beliefs with ISIS, is where Osama was born) to restricting women from driving (I don't think Sharia talks about cars, so this is something they decided on themselves), there's too many problems with this country. The only reason it's not Iraq'd is because of all that oil money.

People there practice Wahabbism, the ultra conservative sect of Islam (when the inability to reform is already a major problem with the religion), so religion there is a really big deal. Bottom line, Saudi Arabia is a pretty caretaker for the birthplace of the 2nd largest religion.

9 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

Really feel sorry for Filipino people for poverty and corruption they face in their country, lack of opportunities and very low standard of life. I would call it the poorest country in Asia. But the majority of people, when they travel to live abroad for work, the just go mad and bitter. The express very hateful and racist behaviors against other nationalities, it's impossible to work with them. They gossip badly, talk dirty about you in Tagalog in your face with other Filipinos, jealous about everything you do and represent, take any chance to stab you in the back, very happy to insult you and see you upset. It's nerve racking and very stressful to work in the company with majority of Filipinos. They are so racist and hostile and ill-mannered, as they feel very low about themselves (and it's not anyone's fault). As I have started working in Filipino company, I was kind, totally non-racist and treated my colleagues with full respect, care, always being nice to them. But if they see anyone nice with them from different nationality, they would try to find any bad reason that is not there, why you are treating them nicely, as they simply don't expect others to have a good nature. They left me no choice, but to become racist against them, I was humiliated an hurt that much. Shame on those people putting bad image on their nation, because there are probably some good Filipino people, educated, kind and cultured, but in my company that would be only 5%, the rest are arrogant, lying, hostile, vicious, jealous and narrow-minded people. Even PhD will not help if someone is lacking basic personal ethics and culture. Totally racist and lost nation, very stupid to treat others badly, feel sorry for them. Don't you ever work in international company with the majority of Filipinos, run away. Total loss for me there.

10 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.

Iran is home to one of the world's oldest civilizations, beginning with the formation of the Elamite kingdoms in the fourth millennium BC. The country's rich cultural legacy is reflected... read more

More than half of the population are under the line of poverty, their government funds crime all around the Middle East instead of funding education, health and other areas that would serve their people. I sympathise with the people of Iran, but if they want to turn things around and for the better they should do something about this corrupted regimen.

Iranians are very kind people, it is sad how Americans are commenting all these horrible things when their country is full of rude people, racists, gangs, drugs, idiots, spoiled people, and bad policing. Not to mention the world is basis ally ruined because of them. This does not apply to all Americans by the ones who are writing hurtful comments.

Iranians do not deserve to be treated how they are it is all because people get Iran mixed up with Iraq. And the terrorists who attacked the US embassy and on 9 11 did not have the citizens support I am half Iranian and half American but I fully support Iran

The Contenders
11 Afghanistan Afghanistan, officially the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, is a landlocked country located at the crossroads of Central and South Asia. Referred to as the Heart of Asia, it is bordered by Pakistan to the east and south, Iran to the west, Turkmenistan to the northwest, Uzbekistan to the north, Tajikistan to the northeast, and China to the northeast and east. Occupying 652,864 square kilometers (252,072... read more

Unfortunately Afghanistan shares a border with Pakistan and this is a huge reason for terrorism in Pakistan. The terrorist bully groups like Taliban need to go back to Afghanistan they are the responsibility of their own government. The USA waged war with Afg and created terrorists, not only Afghanistan but Pakistan has suffered greatly from this.

More than half the country's soil is made up of chopped body parts of their discriminated women.

Awesome country.. Britain, Russia, and even America can't conquer them. The Asian Highlanders!

12 Russia Russia, or the Russian Federation (RF), is a transcontinental country spanning Eastern Europe and Northern Asia. It is the largest country in the world by area, covering over 17,125,191 square kilometres (6,612,073 sq mi), and encompassing one-eighth of Earth's inhabitable landmass. Russia extends across eleven time zones and borders sixteen sovereign nations, the most of any country in the world... read more

Why is Russia here in the list? Though I don't like Russia, this shouldn't be on the list. Russia is both in Europe and Asia, but its capital Moscow is in Europe, so it is classified as the European country.

Russia invaded invaded Ukraine and took over the Crimea area recently. Putin wants to start a New Cold War with the US.

What? Russia shouldn't even be on the list. They are Europeans, not Asian!

13 Yemen Yemen, officially the Republic of Yemen, is a country in Western Asia, on the southern end of the Arabian Peninsula. It borders Saudi Arabia to the north and Oman to the northeast and shares maritime borders with Eritrea, Djibouti, and Somalia. It is the second-largest Arab sovereign state in the peninsula, occupying 555,000 square kilometres (214,000 square miles). The coastline stretches for about... read more
14 Syria Syria, officially the Syrian Arab Republic, is a Western Asian country located in the Eastern Mediterranean and the Levant. It is a unitary republic that consists of 14 governorates (subdivisions), and is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the west, Turkey to the north, Iraq to the east and southeast, Jordan to the south, and Israel and Lebanon to the southwest. Cyprus lies to the west across the... read more

The country is at war and the poor people are being killed by their own government, ISIS and Iran. Yet you hating on them?
We should show compassion towards the people and absolute disgust at their dictatorship regimen.

ISIS and Assad rule while the poor rebels desperately try to bring Syria to justice. Come on Luke Skywalker! Come to the rescue!

It is not a country, it is the world's most largest battlefield! It can be used for battles!

15 Turkey Turkey, officially the Republic of Turkey, is a transcontinental country in Eurasia, mainly in Anatolia in Western Asia, with a smaller portion on the Balkan peninsula in Southeast Europe. Turkey is bordered by eight countries with Greece and Bulgaria to the northwest; Georgia to the northeast; Armenia, the Azerbaijani exclave of Nakhchivan and Iran to the east; and Iraq and Syria to the south. The... read more

If we speak about modern Turkey it's dirty, unpolite, and it goes on. However if we speak about the Ottoman Empire, that gets it 500 years of genocide, without being able to believe your religion.

Refuses to acknowledge genocide against Christian Armenians and Assyrians by Ottoman Empire. Also colonized Northern Cyprus and gets away with it (the world is obssesed with demonizing Israel for 'settlements' though). Racist against Kurdish minority and antisemitic.

Horrible country and horrible, intolerant people. Armenian genocide, Cyprus, Kurdistan, Greece, need I say more?!?!?!

16 Malaysia Malaysia is a Southeast Asian country occupying the Malaysian Peninsula and part of the island of Borneo. It's known for its beaches, rain forests and mix of Malay, Chinese, Indian and European influences. The sprawling capital, Kuala Lumpur, is home to colonial buildings, busy shopping districts such as Bukit Bintang and skyscrapers including the iconic, 451m-tall Petronas Twin Towers.

I have to be honest here. Malaysia as a whole did not accomplish anything. They are one of the world's poorest nations. They are not known for anything yet they brag about their country like everybody knows them. Malaysians are so annoying, saying how their country is so great, and assuming that the world are 'interested' in their cringey accent, their cringey pimply asian faces, their cringey religious faith. If they were to be slapped by the truth: nobody cares about Malaysia. Malaysia is not great. Malaysia is boring. Malaysian people are uninteresting. Malaysia sucks as a nation.

They threats chinese and indian imigrants like a third class citizens. The laws are made up specifically to protect the malay people and discriminate the immigrants in all sector such education, politic, and economic.

The oldest civilization in malaysia's region is only dated back from 14th century, but they love to make a stupid claims to their neighbouring countries' properties and culture.

17 Vietnam Vietnam, officially the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, is the easternmost country on the Indochina Peninsula in Southeast Asia.

You either hate it or love it. Petty crimes and thievery can put off any tourists, but never have there been any major incidents here because of the people's tolerance to other culture.
Other might claim that food is unhealthy, but then again, many people visit it just for its food.
Sure the name communist trigger something, but at the end of the day, China is also communist and that does not stop people from loving it.
About eating dogs or beetles or snakes, it is just cultural. They eat seals in Greenland, whales in Japan and dogs cats in many other parts of Asia. The VNese are very tolerant to other culture, why can't you do the same to them?
The war is just too controversial. However, most of these guys have moved on. You mostly see on YouTube that the former enemies reunion in laughter, not in anger or battlecry.
Again, as a foreigner living here for 5 years, I can't say that I really love this country but surely I will never say that I hate it.

18 Iraq Iraq, officially the Republic of Iraq, is a country in Western Asia. Iraq is currently led by President Fuad Masum and Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi. 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).

Worst country. Hell on earth.

19 United Arab Emirates The United Arab Emirates, or simply the Emirates, is a country in Western Asia (The Middle East). It is located at the eastern end of the Arabian Peninsula and shares borders with Oman and Saudi Arabia, while having maritime borders in the Persian Gulf with Qatar and Iran. Abu Dhabi is the nation's capital, while Dubai, the most populous city, is an international hub.

It's a good country that their government respect every one live their or just visit no matter what his nationality or his religion or where he came from.It is not Islamic country that's mean we can wear whatever we want not like other Arabian countries. Also there are many jobs Opportunities for anybody.

20 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 it one of the most densely populated countries in the world. Bangladesh shares land borders with India... read more

I am not an Indian but I know that Bangladesh owes a lot to India...
First of all they got their freedom from Pakistanis because of India in 1971...
Even their national anthem has been written by an Indian,Rabindranath Tagore...
But the big part is their freedom and I've seen on social media and twitter that they disrespect the India's famous people and even the country... And yes they are not improving...

Corrupt, poor, prone to every disaster it's he'll on earth. Can't believe I'm the first one to mention this terrible place to live, at least economic growth is good but that's the only flip side.

Though I m from Bangladesh but I hate our govt. govt sectors are very corrupted... but people from Bangladesh are best among all over the world..

21 Indonesia Indonesia, officially the Republic of Indonesia, is a country in Southeast Asia. Ruled by the Dutch for over 300 years and Japan for 3 years and 6 months, the country gained independence in 1945, or exactly in 17th August 1945. Jakarta is the capital city, located in the island of Java. Major languages include Bahasa Indonesia (Indonesian), Javanese, Sundanese and Minangkabau. Islam is the largest... read more

All the comments already represents mine. As one of the local, I can't stop agreeing with the ugly facts in ny country. I hate my own community of muslims who discriminate other people who are not muslims while we're told to never do that, but they do it because of them being superior. I have many friends who are non muslims and with many other cultures, and we get along well just fine. We're the one who peace-loving and tolerant are overshadowed with those who uneducated about their own religion. I feel sorry saying this to my own country but corruption and racism case are disgusting..

Indonesia is the most welcome country for foreigners.
In fact, many Indonesian idolize foreigners, I.E. Japanese, Indian (refers to a country in south Asia) due too many Bollywood movies in this country, and off course white people (the most beautiful creatures in Indonesian's mind) due to Hollywood movies and American or European bands influence.
This is also third largest democracy country and the economic growth is fantastic, a good place for invest your money, and everything here is cheap.
What else do you expect from this country? Good place, many beautiful islands (if you love diving or surfing this place is one of the best), and good for business too.
This is so true, because I've been living in Japan for 10 years, and now it's been 15 years. I'm living in Indonesia as a businessman. And I'm half Indonesian half Japanese. compare Japan with Indonesia is a hard decision for me, but if I have to choose, definitely I'll choose Indonesia.
I also open one cafe in Gili, please come.

22 Thailand Thailand, historically known as Siam and officially the Kingdom of Thailand, is a country in Southeast Asia, located at the centre of Mainland Southeast Asia, spanning 513,120 square kilometres (198,120 sq mi), with a population of almost 70 million. The country is bordered to the north by Myanmar and Laos, to the east by Laos and Cambodia, to the south by the Gulf of Thailand and Malaysia, and to... read more

Thailand is a country built entirely on lies from its corrupt upper levels right down to its fake smiles. Thai people hate foreigners, especially black and Middle Eastern people and they only pretend to like white people so they can get their money. They genuinely believe that Thailand is the center of the universe and most of them know very little about the world outside their borders. They are ok with foreigners coming and spending money as long as they go home after but they don't want foreigners living there and seeing it for what it really is. Theyll blatently lie to your face and in the end of any altercation, they will gang up on foreigner like cowards and he will be the loser even if he was actually right.

They're rude, sensitive, and hypocrite. Most of them treat Caucasians as if they're some kind of divine, superior beings descended from heaven, whereas black people and Asian people (Especially South East Asians) are treated like skunks. In a tourism brochure it even says "Thai loves children, especially the ones with blonde hair and blue eyes". They also treat children poorly, pretending being nice to the adults because they have the money. Land of Smiles? More like Land of Fake Smiles.

23 Singapore Singapore, officially known as the Republic of Singapore, is a sovereign island city-state in maritime Southeast Asia. It is situated approximately one degree of latitude (137 kilometers or 85 miles) north of the equator, off the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula. It borders the Strait of Malacca to the west, the Singapore Strait to the south, the South China Sea to the east, and the Straits of... read more

A country you have to abide by your evil grand parents' rules. From outside mostly seems so great..but nothing's great - a made believe country...the Asian Israel (Rulers). People are warm and always seem to complain and share about their ministers and law makers every time people visit the country. Majority Chinese there wishing endlessly why they were not born Caucasian! Bought sportmen and sportwomen from anywhere around the world in hoping to get gold medals for international games...Owwhh, food wise are mostly claimed theirs but taste and methods of preparation are mostly copied from Thailand, Malaysia and Brunei...copy everything and claim its yours...Get wrecked!

Wow, I can see here majority here are Filipinos. Are you just jealous? And to those haters, you're are talking about mainly racism, but can you find a country that is racism- free? I agree that money is something that is very highly valued in society, but just because of that you complain so much(I'm saying this to Singaporeans). You don't realise how blessed you are,complaining and complaining. You don't see North Korea, how the people don't even get a chance to study, yet YOU here in Singapore complain about education, strict laws and etc.Have you stopped to think why we have all this?

24 Kazakhstan Kazakhstan, officially known as the Republic of Kazakhstan, is a country in northern Central Asia, with a sliver of its territory west of the Ural River extending into Eastern Europe.

They always act like they are better than anyone, have a very big ego. Living with them around is the worst, rude, stupid, lazy, agressive, playing loud sucked music with doors always opened to showed people how cool their music is. to be honest I have never had problem with russian people, but so many with people from Kazakhstan. (No racist here)

Really? People hate this country because of its name? Ignorance is among us.

If you don't like a name it doesn't mean anything! Look at your name first!

25 Sri Lanka Sri Lanka, officially the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka and known from the beginning of British colonial rule until 1972 as Ceylon, is an island country in South Asia near south-east India.

I personally would advice all the other countries who are willing to help Sri Lanka to refrain from assisting them further onwards since country itself is filled with thick headed narrow minded locals who have no idea of whats currently happening all around them. The middle class and the rich class citizens are treated very cruelly whereas normal decent English students are indiscriminated for their favourable behaviours. The next generation of Sri Lanka has been taught to obtain maximum benifits regardless of the existence of these resources which are misunderstandingly provided to them by foreign nations. They prefer to topple down those have been worth for them using them. Rascism does also have a prominent place in Sri Lanka up to a certain extent. This country is by far most the filthiest and the most disgusting destination for a typical human being. Humanity has been failed by these ignorant people of Sri Lanka.
