The Top Ten
1 Australia Australia, officially the Commonwealth of Australia, is a sovereign country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands. With an area of 7,617,930 square kilometres (2,941,300 sq mi), Australia is the largest country by area in Oceania and... read more

Australians come from every race and every culture. 29.9% are 'Australian' while everyone else is from diverse backgrounds. The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders have been in Australia for many years. A lot of the people are non-white, and some are. Australia is indeed ought to be the most multicultural country in the world.

I grew up in Australia as an immigrant and was granted naturalization to become a citizen. But I lived in a quite diverse suburb in Brisbane with a majority of my friends being Chinese, Indian, and Sri Lankan. Almost every one of my friends is also from New Zealand and South Africa. Basically, I think Australia has the highest migration rates in the world in terms of multicultural diversity.

2 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

It is a country that comes in the list of linguistic diversities. It is a home for all the possible religions you can think of. And it is one of the countries having the richest cultures and festivals. It also shows an amazing quality of cinema, diverse ancient civilizations, and architecture dating back to the times of Egyptian civilizations. According to the 2017 census, it is the world's largest growing economy.

Climate, Landscape, Language, Culture, Religion, Cuisine, wildlife, Clothing, Physique... Tell me the country which offers variety in all these?

The fact that only one-fifth of their population is actually born in Canada is spectacular. If you ask, Canada does not have a primary culture that is considered Canadian. Instead, it is cultures coming from all around the world that Canadians share. Canada is a country that runs and lives off immigration. Due to the size of the country, they need individuals to make more babies or to immigrate.

Canada ranks in the top five of the safest countries with a growing economy, especially coming from Calgary. Canada is, in my opinion, the best country for a family to move to. Everybody is polite and nice in general, jobs are easy to find (may vary from province to province), and it offers free healthcare. Overall, Canada is the most multicultural country out there, with over 100 different ethnic groups.

New Zealand is so slept on. We are a VERY multicultural country. We accept, embrace, and love our indigenous culture and people. We not only celebrate their culture but also other Pacific Islands, Indian festivals, and Chinese New Year. Tell me what other country recognizes and praises its indigenous culture. I rest my case.

The mix of cultures in Auckland is amazing. Auckland's North Shore is home to large South African, Korean, and European communities, while parts of South, East, Central, and West Auckland have large Pacific Island, African, Vietnamese, Chinese, and Cambodian communities. Our suburbs are ethnically diverse, which makes Auckland unique.

I'm Malaysian. I speak English, Malay, Mandarin, Hokkien, and Spanish. I can do that in a single sentence. Often, foreigners argue that it's because I went to an international school, but that's not the reason. It's the nature of Malaysians. Many college friends attended public school and can speak the same number of languages, if not more, than me.

Malay, Chinese, Indian, Iban, Kadazandusun culture, and more flourish in Malaysia. You can get all kinds of cuisine within one block of shops. In one street, you can see a mosque, Buddhist temple, Hindu temple, and church all having prayer sessions at the same time.

You can see Chinese wearing Baju Kurung (Malay traditional outfit), Malays wearing sarees (Indian traditional outfit), and Indians wearing cheongsam (Chinese traditional outfit) even on an ordinary day. It would be shocking if a Malaysian said they knew less than three languages. It would be practically impossible for a Malaysian not to have tasted another culture's food. Even as a vegetarian, I have access to over 300 vegetarian restaurants nearby serving various cultures' foods.

18 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,... read more

I like to call Brazil the giant multicultural center. We may not have a lot of people speaking many different languages, but our version of Portuguese has a mishmash of all types of languages. African culture is huge, and there are places in the south where European culture is really big.

A giant Asian, and most notably Japanese, presence exists in "Liberdade," a district in São Paulo. The indigenous people are also very relevant. Almost everyone has a Black, indigenous, Latin, European, and sometimes Asian descendant. It's crazy how those cultures got together to form Brazilian culture.

But unfortunately, there are some groups trying to make people believe that Brazil is a racist and misogynist country, which is total BS.

19 Belgium Belgium, officially the Kingdom of Belgium, is a country in Northwestern Europe. The country is bordered by the Netherlands to the north, Germany to the east, Luxembourg to the southeast, France to the southwest, and the North Sea to the northwest. It covers an area of 30,689 km2 (11,849 sq mi) and... read more
