The Top Ten
I lived there for years. I've traveled most of the world and lived in four countries (including the hilariously #1 on this list - a straight hater vote). Without question Polish people are some of the most base, tactless, ignorant, arrogant, deluded, shallow, racist, anti-semitic, lying, thieving, backstabbing, complex-riddled, and you got it, RUDE people on planet earth. Making it worse, they actually think they're wonderful, as many of them are also the least Christian, 'Christians' you'll ever meet. This is only funny the first ten times they tell you how lovely they all are (and start criticizing your country as many are also 'global/cultural' experts). They are on these kinds of lists for a reason. Yes, there are some exceptions, but every cool and thoughtful Pole I knew there hated it and was either planning an escape or was trapped there because of family.
Very rude and egocentric people, nationalistic and blinded from self appreciation. Should be higher on the list.
Catholics from the middle age thinking and doing, racist against any migrant or even refugee.
It's not true. FILIPINOS should be the number most rudest people in the world. I Hate FILIPINOS a lot 😡😡😡😡😡😡 I have experienced how rude the FILIPINOS were. So they should be number one rudest people in the world. They are too proud to be monkey 😆😂😁V 20 Comments
Absolutely ridiculous, France, UK and USA are among the most multi cultural countries in the world, in France more than 170 countries are represented, the tensions are more between some ethnics part than else. The French people are kind anyway and France stays the most visited country, so rude you say? Just because you don't know anything at all and just believing in stereotypes as any mindless guy.
France is my favorite country and I am Irish!
France has an amazingly diverse culture, and the language is easy to learn, not rude at all.
Honestly, France is the most visited country in the world, so as a tourist who doesn’t speak French at all, it was so dificult for me to order my food or to ask a route. Nobody speaks English and apparently no one makes the effort to understand you or helping you.V 25 Comments
Totally absurd. I've travelled and lived in a number of countries. When you're strictly talking about people and character here (not politics or power) American's, in general, are some of the most helpful, friendly, kind, creative, open, tolerant, honest, and fun people on earth. Every possible race, color, nation, religion, orientation, and creed can be found in even smaller cities, in the middle of nowhere, in the US. It's the melting pot of the world and it's diversity is unmatched anywhere Are there rude Americans? Of course. It's not perfect. But there is no way it's objectively one of the 'rudest' countries on earth.
Ridiculous comments left mostly by people with intermediate level English pretending to be Americans - or people who've never been there and are haters. There is absolutely no way any globally well traveled, remotely honest person thinks the US is even in the top 10 on this list. Clowns.
Although I'm American citizen, but I have more respect for non-American citizens than American citizens (only those who never been outside of USA). All the stereotypes about certain people come from Americans themselves. They are most ignorant people because most never travel outside of USA. They say that Chinese are good at maths, however, this only applies to Chinese Americans, not native mainland Chinese. They make rude jokes about people based on skin colour, hair colour and other physical traits. Racism is always persistent in United States since slavery of Africans. Americans are so arrogant that they put more emphasis on individualism. They do have strongest military, but they withdrew from recent wars like Iraq. They have the largest prison population due to gun killings, property destruction and crimes against humanity. Not all Caucasians are Americans because they can be from Europe, Canada or Australia. Americans are mostly prideful pricks who are always arrogant.
I think it's one of the rude country because likie there's a lot of bullying going on and that means that a lot of people are rude.V 36 Comments
Cons: Rigid, arrogant, not very good taste in clothing, cold, grumpy and often not as efficient as the theory says (that's for the Swiss instead). Oh, and arrogant for no reason (they are not the most good looking or the brightest people in the world, are they? ).
Pros: the new generations become more and more open to the English speaking people then the older ones, the latter of whom not being able to speak any other language.
I can agree! I'm from Germany and German people are often rude and grumpy.
Very arrogant, extremely cold and rude people! Efficiency and good work is a myth. People should not believe that. Wondering how the numbers show a powerful nation in Europe. Maybe in numbers but not on live quality.
They got their rudeness from the Nazis - infinitecirculationV 10 Comments
Very rude and some can be very negative and abusive and even violent. Very good at not minding there own business. Can be often arrogant. And think the world should all be like them.
Traveled extensively and found, Brit drivers most courteous, but London rip-off, watch your prices and change carefully. France, locals great but watch out for err non-locals, danger violent thieves. USA, most people great but too many hands out for tips for no reason, NYC great but every where do a deal. Asia, everyone wants to do a deal, possible USA influence. UK, USA and France definitively not the rudest.
Like many other countries, the UK definitely has some problems, but I have always found them to be very friendly and personable. However, they do need to address their tendency to be ridiculously strict with their 'rules' and relax their pants on some issues. Recently, at a run-of-the-mill highstreet cafe in York, England, a waitress came to my table and admonished me for sharing half of my sandwich with my husband. Apparently if my husband wanted a sandwich, he should have ordered one for himself, sharing is not allowed (what). She ignored the fact that he had already eaten his full meal. Seriously though...correcting adult customers? Let it go, you're not SuperNannyNation. Apart from that, they're usually warm and friendly.
Never met so many rude people until I moved here...and I'm American! - catlvrV 13 Comments
I'm Italian and don't listen to these idiots, Italians are not arrogant, they just have pride and confidence in themselves. When it comes to rudeness, it depends at the location. The south is full of short tempered and egotistic people, but the north is the complete opposite. Italians are not nasty and not demoralizing and they do not think they are best at everything, what the hell are these lunatics talking about. They're certainly not deranged, some people just need to explore and educate themselves more because most of these comments are completely false.
Italy (along with Romania) are probably the most deranged Latin nations when it comes to people.
Pros about Italians: good taste in clothes, personality (when common sense rules the person), many men and women are very good looking.
Cons: literally no manners; no professionalism in business.
Rudeness can be bafflingly subjective. While smiling may be a common way to greet someone, in Italy it could be interpreted as insincere we discovered when travelling across the country. When I wanted to ask directions our first impression was that nobody was willing to help us, or in such an unintelligible language. When we tried to make contact nobody smiled and looked really helpful or approachable. Only later I learned that in Italy smiling at strangers can be interpreted as making fun of them.
No! Get rid of Italy!
Italians are so helpful and polite. Very attractive people and very romantic language. Been there three times never had problems, always wanting to help a hand.
Italian Bengali are even more polite and friendly - infinitecirculation
Not better than Italy, same kind of behavior towards foreigners and outside world.
Refuse any immigration, close-minded.
I'm starting to see a pattern here-the people commenting here aren't actually commenting on how rude the locals are to tourists, but are really just venting about the country's attitude towards immigration which is why countries such as Poland, UK and America are around the top.
So I have a message to all the Africans, pakistanies and butthurt Muslims-not even country in the world is entitled to treat you like a snowflake and let migrants from your area and so called "refugees" walk freely into our countries
What should I say..
Hungary is hungry
I am not sure about 10%. I think 0.000000...1 % maybe not bad people
Would be number one on this list if it wasn't for the fact the other countries get more visitors and therefore more votes.
the absolute worst people I have ever met, maybe 10% of them are nice and decent people but the majority are unbelievably bad.
Go to a restaurant in Prague.. And you'll be shocked
You want to live in Czech republic? You must speak Czech fluently
No more than Italy or Sunotisaja
Czechs are sometimes rude people,Although they are helpful.
I came across Egyptians during a work assignment and I'd say they certainly are short tempered and rude relative to any other people I've come across.
Egyptians are the most rudest, impolite & loud people I ever saw. They don't have respect for any one what so ever.
Most uncivilized people in the earth..V 8 Comments
Tourists from China are often commented as being rude.
There so mean and impolite.
Chinese And Japanese Can Be Rude, NO Respect Or Manners But Sadly That's How There Bought Up. We Cannot Really Blame Them. When I Opened A Door For A Teacher In College She Just Snorted At Me.
Some of the Chinese are rude, racist harsh, throwing rental bicycles, but some of them are quite nice to people.V 8 Comments
Kim is the rudest man Alive even ruder than the grinch - Dvafan2
Yo this should be number one... NOW!

There is Many Nice People in North Korea. Just because The Leader is Bad Doesn’t mean that Everyone Living There is Bad.
It depends what island you go to and what area, North island especially in Rotarua, Hamilton and Auckland there are very rude and racist people there, but in the South Island the more south you go the nicer the people
They are very rude and over all jerks no manners what so ever
I live there and I'm canadian they are so racist!
I'm Greek and I'm nice, not rude.
They think they are the best people in the world just because they have great history but new age Greeks are racist and rude.
Rudest people I have ever met in my entire life
Are you serious? they are really friendly - infinitecirculationV 6 Comments
I just got back from my trip to the Balkans and most of the people in these countries where super kind but when I went to Kosovo they where worse then the French they think that if you have the money to go there your just there to shove it in there face that you have money!
I know a man from Kosovo that lives in North America. He told me he doesn't trust women, or believe them. And he cheats on all of his girlfriends. He has a few of them at a time. And he hates Serbs.
Why isn't this in the top ten. I live in kosovo, and everyone there is so mean, like once I walked around the supermarket and the casheir was so rude to my mom,however the kids at school are nice, I think its just the adults that are mean
Gross attitude and a mentality coming from the medieval era. Russia, you may have big balls and great power all over the world, but you really need to grow up. Seriously!
Not helpful at all, very rude not only to foreigners but among themselves. If someone shows kindness, watch out they want to rob you.
Depends on the area.
It's pretty obvious we're not going to like people who associate us with drugs and Putin.V 5 Comments
Gossipy. Vain. Enjoy pecking orders. Vicious. Even those who deny it are casually racist, sexist and homophobic. Very enjoyable people if you know what lines not to cross.
Not only rude but arrogant.
Yeah some people are very rude and racist
Much worse than every other country on this list should be in top 10. Drug cartels and lots of people carry guns especially tour guides which in my opinion is scary!
Canada shouldn't be on this list nor Austrailia they are safe and the people there are amazing! Usa and Russia should be 1 and 2 Russia because their people are just begging for money. Usa because they ask where your from and before that they could really care less about you then they ask you where your from and if you say any country that's well known and liked they will be all nice to you and beg for money! I blame TRUMP. But Mexico in 38 should be bumped to 4 or 8, Horribly rude all those spics. All other countries are well rated though except Canada and Austrailia. they are extremely nice!
This is one of the most soulless country I've ever been to. And I'm saying that because of the Swiss. I've never seen such a rude nation anywhere in this world I've been travelling through for a while. Swiss tend to live in their own bubble, have an extremely rude behavior and believe the entire universe revolves around their country, which is clearly wrong. And the racism is at a very, but very high scale.
Pros: extraordinary landmarks, amazing food, it's great place to make money, perfect infrastructure, high linguistic variety, chocolate, watches, high efficiency in business.
I'm half Swiss. The people you meet here tend to look very nice and BE very nice to you if they don't know you, but once they get to know you better (and especially, if you're from another country), they will verbally abuse you and put themselves very high on the scale. I'm more Polish than Swiss, and I don't understand how Poland is #1 on this list. We tend to be very nice people, shame that most of us choose not to learn other languages. Switzerland is all fine, but (some) of the people... - redhawk766
The Swiss just don't have any personality.
I am from Bern (the Hauptstadt (capital). I have met good very nice fellow 'Schwyzer Lüte' and some bad apples as well. Still, as I was born there CH is special to me.
I would say that the USA in my experience is most likely the winner for being the rudest and most obnoxious place on the Third Planet from the Sun (especially with D J Trump as their new President)!
At least not all Argentinians are like that! Gosh
That's the rudest country in Europe ladies and gentelmans. I waited to use toilet then a guy said "get out its not a public toilet" like 4 times. I was all nice to him even asked with hello sir but the people here are just horrible. Every taxi driver wanted to scam me for like 10 euro, I was in 4 restaurants and in 3 of them waiters were absolutely rude and wanted to scam me, I wanted to smoke a cig but I had no firelighter so I asked a bodyguard at havana club if he can lend me firelighter for a while and he said not for you. Island itself is nic but people here are more than horrible. I do not recommend this racist and selfish country to anyone.
Rude, Arrogant, Gropers, Letchers and Ignorant. Thank God it's an island and they can't affect the rest of the Med!
We drive horribly and lots of traffic and we accept too many immigrants (Arabs). But Malta is not that bad as a country.
Too much immegrants and Arabs and muslims, They can steal your money and be very rude to you and bad service, we had experience at one restaurant called D'office Bistro in Valatta, And the waiter was very bad and rude to us and tried to steal our money with fake bills and his name was Khodor Bayan.V 1 Comment
Yeah they terrorisms are rude.
Literally TERRORIST country!
Never respect other religion except sunnis.
It is normal, the vast majority of Romania are Roma. Gypsies do not want to go to work or school. They are a nation of banditry. As you see Roma have NO history or good culture. Their culture is the streets and travelling; cunning, and steal before moving on to the next town.
Please thankyou and sorry do not exist in the romanian vocab, if you use them you are seen as strange!
Bigot, out of the normal world, high arrogance level related to no way of understanding the real issues, rejects categorically the scientific evidences.
Against any kind a morality.
If you are not old, man, catholic, better white Italian or having Italian roots and having no problem with pedophilia and homophobia (being yourself not heterosexual...) pass your way, in the other case you will enjoy the entertainments there. Welcome to Paradise! - ~~~
Because this is the Capital of the church of babylon, which literally hacked the original, spiritual christianity.
Devil is so confident nowadays,
and the "pope" francis got very well connections with Argentine fascist elite, please google it people : read about his past.
Still there are few decent Christian people out there,
somewhere in monasteries, vegetarians and praying to Jesus sincerely.
This fake church will fall soon.
Not all but many Indians (YouTube doesn't lie, just check all the comme- actually don't..) are utterly disrespectful towards people who say nothing to them in the first place. Specifically they go head over heals to insult Pakistanis at that moment there's a superiority complex that "we are bigger and better than you". Please control your foulness and egotism, you can't see another people achieving and bringing positive contributions in their society. You do you, India has many improvements to be made so invest your energy in more beneficial things. Happy 15th August.
There Vocabulary Is Disgusting, Always Rude And Racist And Get Funny About There Skin Colour. I Had A Friend Who Was Indian, He Was Polite And Friendly. But When We Fell Out He Said That I Commented On His Skin Colour.
Many think of Pakistanis as undeserved of any respect and Need no excuse to constantly bully them and some people can say the most vile things so, when Indians are respectful then I am surprised. I will not painting all Indians with the same brush but I have always noted this fact sorry
Please stop judging Indians. they are much more polite than several other nations.V 12 Comments
Swedish people never say "thank you" or "sorry" and ignore people they meet, just pretending they don't see you.
They don't care for others. If you step on their feet and you say "sorry" they just give you a rude face and goes away fast.
Maybe it's the weather there which at times makes the Swedes inhospitable to the point of being positively hostile. My oddest Swedish experience was when a stocky, well-dressed man wanted to start a fight with me on a 'posh' niteclub dancefloor because I had accidentally bumped against him...did I mention I'm a 5'5'' girl? In fact, the guys there can give the impression of generally being a bit rough with their womenfolk. Overall, I think the Swedes are okay, but sometimes they're just a bit dark and surly. Maybe they're really cuddly underneath all that moodiness.
They are Syrians who will rape you if you are blonde womanV 2 Comments
Very untrustworthy people that are always trying to get some extra money from you. Had a terrible experience and will be happy if I never go there again. Airport is a disaster too!
When I try to study, every single kid in my class start running around punching each other and screaming swear words while the teacher does the same.
The rudest people in the world, everybody trying to get more money from you any way they can, never smile,never ever go there again
Can't u see it?
I know right? Korean are usually the backstabber, and all people I met from Korea are messing stupid. All they care is about themselves, and they are so rude to other countries... Korean boys are so much ruder than other country boys, and I suggest you guys... STOP HANG OUT WITH GOD DAMN KoreaN!
People are so rude in Korea, and I had a Korean best friend. They tend to make everything dramatic and emotional, and they hate other country people. The parents are so gossipy, so Korea should be at least top 15..
Racist against other asians and foreigners
Very racist and thinks dark people are poor or a terrorist. They think being white means you are rich which is stupid. Had some Korean freinds and they are rough, show offs and snobs. Should be 3rd on the list.
They are so mean to Albanians and Kosavans
After living here for two years, I now think of them as the rudest people I've ever met, BUT what seems rude in my country seems to be acceptable here so I believe different countries and people have different ideas on what is rude and what is not.
Should be Number 1. Rude, Disrespectful, Careless, Dirty. They only seem to care about 1. Money, 2.Themselves, 3. How their hair looks. Their so called "Pinoy Pride" is completely Misplaced. The most dysfunctional People and Country. I am disgusted by them. - SIC
Should be at Number 1. Rude, Disrespectful, Careless, Dirty. They seem to only care about 1.Money, 2.Themselves, 3.How their hair looks. Their "Pinoy Pride" is completely Misplaced
Disgusting education less, culture less ass pinoy breeder country. they never respect everyone especially the women, no wonder there's a lot of cheap ass ugly prostitutesV 5 Comments
Women are extremely rude (says a guy who's always had more female friends than male ones). Overall, relationships between people are very shallow and the Irish generally can be pretty fake about everything. Everything or almost everything revolves around drinking and I still doubt Czech Republic has the highest alcohol consumption rate. Their only quality is they are much more polite than many, many other nations. Should I even mention how ridiculously has the crime rate increased lately, especially in Dublin?
Why do people think Ireland is all about the drinking and partying? Its actually a very religious country and they have a very strong and interesting history. I like it there. ( I am American) I have been to Ireland for Irish Dance, and the flight we took, our taxi driver, and the guy at the hotel were all very nice, not to mention everyone we met in stores and stuff. Very neat country!
Really? How did Ireland become a contender here? Seems an unlikely candidate.
They are really rude. They cannot accept that they did not won. I was really shocked by it. I've always thought that Germany people are rude, but no. They're extremely jealous people in my opinion. Some od them arennit like that, byť most od them are the same.V 1 Comment
I'm surprised its number 24. In my opinion it should be number 4 or 8. Extremly racist people. Your never welcomed here. I came to Australia since 2006 and I've been called Muslim and people always told me to go back to my country. The number of times I've seen people getting bullied and me getting bullied is mind blowing. Very sad to see a good country be filled with such rude people.
It depends on what part you visit, like I'm Australian and yet I'm not arrogant or mean to people!
Some parts of Sydney are really rude,
I live here an a lot of people are incredibly rude! Nobody makes an effort to make a space for you on a path when you're walking towards them. No one says thank you when you keep a door open for them. Bundaberg is the worst place in Australia however. We've been all overV 7 Comments

Rude people against celebrities athletes
while nice people against dictatorship and there too many chapmen that sell things much more expensive than their exact value and guarantee for goods and technologcal tools doesn't mean anything at all
Money money money, all they care about. They will fleece you dry and laugh at it in your face
For me, they doesn't think before speaking, and says that they have been celebrating Lunar New Year long time ago, and was said they were celebrating before Chinese celebrates it. what YOU GUYS STARTED CELEBRATING SINCE THE INDEPENDENCE DAY AND YET BEING so ARROGANT! LOL
Yeah Friendly or Rude it's depend on Money
Met many very polite people in South Africa - but when a South African wants to be rude to you, boy do you know it.
Actually South Africa is pretty average as far as manners go compared to Africa as a whole. You get used to how they do things in SA after a while. But its true that the whites do still have a massive superiority complex.
Never met so many ill mannered people in my life - unbelievable!

Amsterdam is a wonderful international city. Outside of that, the rest of the country is hideously rude.
Amsterdam: Absolutely anti-tourist mentality, unhelpful and rude.
I think it’ s wonderful in the Netherlands
I can agree! I'm from Netherlands and Dutch people are often very rude and arrogant. What also horrible is: The Dutch use "cancer" as swearword!
What I think is: the Americans are much friendlier than the Dutch. - guyvanvolen
Rude and arrogant, obnoxious and very rowdy, uneducated and uncultured animals, should be among the top! they are very noisy and pesky and all over social media! Asian terrorists, ISIS protectors
Should be on the top, they're unfriendly and racist
People just aren't polite.
People are so unacompanied and not polite.
Well they cover women from head to toe
I've worked here and they are really rude, Pervert and sex maniac. They are praying 5 times a day but after that they will still go back to their animal like attidue. This place is Not safe especially for women.
Never Go Here.
