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.
I've been to nine of the top ten countries on this list and none of them come close to being as rude and socially inept as Poland/Poles.V 42 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.
I wanted to go to US but I changed my mind all thank to Trump.
Literally every kid there has such a big ego and thinks there country rules the world. Most kids also think that being mean will make them "cool"V 62 Comments
They assume they are superior to everyone just because their schooling systems are better. Very arrogant people who think they can say whatever they wish just because they live in the UK. I had someone tell me once that they're "superior to me, because America has a crappy schooling system." What?
UK in the past: Stupid African nations, your resources are all MINE, HAHAAHAH! We will make you slaves so you suffer.
UK now: Oh, look at those African nations struggling, let's spend our entire GDP on trying to force their lifestyles to be like ours. Let's destroy all of their diseases so they overpopulate! Oh no, the stupid African nations are overpopulating, let's introduce birth control. Oh no, they're starving now, let's shove food down their throat so they don't. Oh no, we wasted all of our money trying to help these countries that I ruined, guess I'll leave the EU.
The UK was once pretty rude, thinking that they were stronger and superior to other countries as an excuse for colonizing them, even driving Native Americans to near extinction, yet they have gotten better. Sure, they still haven't gotten over the fact that nations should be able to govern their country the way they want, but at least they're trying to help.
It depends on which part of UK
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.V 18 Comments
The French have no business in the hospitality industry, because the very idea of being subservient to the needs of others they consider beneath them...as they make clear at every opportunity.
French people have zero manners and zero lack of any form of politeness. They give off an image to the world that they are highly cultured and educated when they are not. I find the French like the Americans: greasy bellies, ignorant, dumb, unpolite, racist, etc.
Uneducated, rude, bad manners, French kids are some of the worst behaved countries in the world. Horrible people. - tigerbw
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.V 33 Comments
Italy it's not rude. Some people think that italian rude but when I went to italy lots of people were nice
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.
Haha, these comments made me laugh. I am an Italian and I know we are xenophobes and proud! We want to keep our country italian not globalized! Dear leftist scumbags, look what happened to Germany, France and UK where let migrants into their countries. - ItalianPatriot
If you do not believe Italy is inhabited by the most rude, lazy, savage and stupid people, is simply because they speak only italian and so it is impossible for any foreigner who does not understand that barbarian language decipher the obscenity that they say. If you are a foreigner, a young attractive woman, a minority, or simply a civilized person, be ready to get offended, arrassed cheated, robbed or worse if you go in Italy.
We have been there once and it is one time too much. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!
I worked in the restaurant industry (USA). Germans are always rude and never tip. Party of six and $200 bill? No tip. I guarantee it. They think they are better than us because we're fat, uneducated, and stupid. At least us Americans have table manners.
Very uneducated. - tigerbw
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.
Arrogant and rudeV 17 Comments
Bro only the government some of the people who live there is nice
These crazy, fat and ugly lechers are racist towards everyone but russi and china, yet Kim eats food from all over the world and went to school in Switzerland.
I don't know place just seems like hell to me.
Kim Jong Un. Enough said! - Userguy44
Kim Jong Un is bad, very true. But the government of North Korea is just an egg on a roof. - FuziionV 8 Comments
Bulgaria actually is a nice country with kind people.
No way! Bulgaria is a wonderful country and I met helpful people there.
I have a lot of international coworkers from around the world and bulgarians are definitely the rudest bunch.
I am Bulgarian and I can confirm we're really rude hahaV 4 Comments
One of my relatives one said that they decided not to go to Qatar due to rudeness
Entitled and disrespectful
The Hungarian people seem to be angry towards literally every other nation in Europe (except Poland). No idea why this nationalism comes from, but I'm not planning to visit Hungary ever again.
I will no longer choose this country for holiday. For some reason I found hungarian people rude and anti foreign mentality. Seems they dislike tourists...
I'm Russian. And Russians are indeed rude. But when, in my presence, somebody talks about how rude the Russians are, I always say: That's because you have not been to Hungary. True champions. Everybody else is vying for second place and lower.
Equal opportunity haters: Americans, Russians, Austrians, Blacks, Muslims, Jews - everybody intensely hated.
Nasty, wining stock.
Unfortunately hungary is full with rude people especially Budapest the capital.V 13 Comments
Mean rude if needed
Can't speak for the country, but without exception, every man I have met from this countrybor culture is abrupt, ruse and ahoet-tempered.
Well, my family came from China. It's like anywhere else. Some rude people and some nice people.
They are very rude, you better learn mandarin or have a guide who does if you plan on going there. I also once saw a guy being beaten by 3 other people on the middle of the street and everyone was just looking, not the kindest bunch. (I was in chengdu)
The don't know what is manner at all.
Cut in the line, no personal space, never say excuse me, sorry, or thanks.
There has no rules.
It's obvious. they got no manners, they are just filthy bugs in human formV 17 Comments
Boi look at the Serbian politics!
Serbians are very nice people! They're far more nicer than stuck up Albanians!
No way! Serbs are really nice people and I am suprised how helpful they are.
I don't think that Serbian people are rude. Among the slavic people serbs are the kindest!V 1 Comment
Well the Czech people are kind hearted and helpful. Prague is a wonderful capital city and there are lot of tourists from evrywhere around the world. My experience about the Czech republic is very positive, and I have some friends from the Czech repuplic also. I only can recommend this country to everybody!
I'm Czech, I love being helpful and all but no one ever repaid it to me, people here only care about their sake and always seem really annoyed by their jobs. I don't even enjoy going anywhere, especially in the main city.
Got stones thrown at me for speaking german by a guy who was in his mid twenties with his daughter standing next to him laughing. I never go there again.
I am Czech and most Czechs are selfish, ignorant and rude. It a remnant of socialistic culture, where everyone cared only about himself or closest family. Sure, there are many people who are nice and helpful, but every 4 years the selfishness crystalizes in parliamentary elections. Also Czechs like to cheat and have very low morale profile.V 4 Comments
So racist. So disrespectful to other Africans.
Most rude country in Africa
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.V 10 Comments
It should be in top 5 rudest countries Full racist people You guys will be surprised that I just met 4 to 5 good people in last 2 years over here.99% aussie's are frustrated, rude, rasict.
Australia should be in the top 5...
I'm Australian and I'm very kind to others.V 12 Comments
It's very rude to scam.
How though? - Luckys
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.
I lived her all my life and they never ever discriminate me, one of the most polite people, they are super peaceful and loving towards anyone who comes by them.
I have lived here for 12 years. Beautiful place - awful, awful people...the rudest ever with terrible manners, bad grammar, and terrible spelling. The South Island people are much nicer, but to be completely honest, the people are terrible. Workplace bullying is rife, along with something called "Tall Poppy Syndrome" - (look that one up)...in other words, if they are envious of you, they chop your head off. An incredibly Passive Aggressive society. Horrible people.
I have attended school there for 9 years (I'm from Canada) and I have been bullied throughout the years, plus no one is very friendly. New Zealand is a nice place to visit but I do not recommend living there.
Lmao get real here. There's other countries who are far racist than new zealand haha. - KateCollins
Kiwis are very rude. They grow horns out of their forehead when you ask them about the weather. They cannot resist rugby with potatos and pepper sauce. And they call everyone idiots. People called Rose and Sophie are particularly rude, and will never stop critizing other people.V 4 Comments
Russians are the meanest people on the earth when sober. When drunk, they get worse.
Rude, loud and bad tourists, who insist you speak their language where ever you are.
80% of Russians are very aggressive people! Be careful there!
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!V 9 Comments
They hate our country where we live in Canada
I don't like the way how all Arab countries treat women! They're DISCUSTING!
I'm scared of this country.V 3 Comments
Too rude to my body
At least not all Argentinians are like that! Gosh
I will no longer be having India on my travel list. Not until I feel safe to do so. Not impressed with the governments actions towards people like the Muslims and the killing of Kashmiri people. India must own up to their actions and work from there rather than put blame on Pakistan, a country much smaller than them. Shame, the rich Mughal history of India is to die for to explore but I'm afraid this isn't the India I apparently once knew.
INDIA basically IS the mother of all rude countries. They call themselves the mother/father of other countries, am I not right? "Bharat mata" hail mother India? It really irks me how arrogant India is and I am better off not going there or associating myself with these kind of people that have arrogance in their blood. Once in a while you will definitely find some good Indians though.
Well Indian people are guest-welcoming and I did not find them rude they were helpful and nice. I haven't heard a bad word or insult to me as a tourist. I had a great time in Jaipur, Rajastan part in India.
India has several religions in the country ( Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Christianity, Sikhism, Jainism, Zoroastrianism, Baha'i faith... )
I agreed what the hindu and sikh views tells about the dark age / Kali yuga, we are living in this era of moral falling. Almost every countries have hard time and difficulties from politican, economical, society, religional or enviormental problems.
Hope I didn't sound offensive or hypocrite with the religious part.
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.V 23 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
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
Mexicans are the most rudest people and RACIST! in School has the worst Education Systems bad culture ignorant people out of my entire life! I hope may not survive in a few years.V 1 Comment
Hindu can't live in Pakistan.
Pakistanis are not rude, you'll met the odd people here and there in your lifetime as you would with any other nationality. What matters is that Pakistani's are known to be extremely hospitable that's what these people meant be them being extremists. Also how the fork does terrorism link with being rude - just a side statement that Indians (the ones who are best at making these comments) are obsessed with Pakistan. Lol.
Literally all they care about is their religionV 5 Comments
Swiss people are the devil and the world would be better off without them.
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 got mistreated there! I asked for steak and they sent me pork!
I just HATE em!
I hate shadman as he is a pervert. He is Swiss too.V 4 Comments
BURMESE people DISCRIMINATE SKIN COLR, RELIGION, ETC. EVENTHOUGH THEY DISCRIMINATE THE SAME RELIGION SAME RACE BY COMPARING WITH SKIN COLOR.
Greeks are nice people! Greece should ranked at the top 10 least rude country.
I'm Greek and I'm nice, not rude.
I spent my holiday in Greece (2015) and I had some good memories. The local people in Athene were NICE,KIND,and HELPFUL and not just the capital, also in the greek islands were friendly people. The landscape and the mediterran areas were wonderful. I haven't heard any cruel or racist word to my skin color or appearance. Unfortunatley I can't tell this from my country! :( Greece supriced me positive way. God bless and save Greece and the greek people!
They think they are the best people in the world just because they have great history but new age Greeks are racist and rude.V 8 Comments
Okay so I’m half Sudanese half British not trying to insult my country but it’s just president,he does not do anything
Islamic Republic (Khartoum as capital), lead by a terrible dictator.
Not to be confused with South Sudan which has enough suffered the barbarity of the government of Khartoum.
I accidentally voted it. But I'm Sudanese and if I tell you one thing, they are very welcoming people. So shut your big mouths up you haters😠
One of the worst in the world.
Plastic surgery capital of the world
Very funny, I went to South Korea and everybody were nice, and they don't eat dogs or get a plastic surgery, so shut up if you didn't go there - Votebotingsucks
They tend to expect more from you, they get plastic surgeries just to get a career. They woud bully you for any slip up.
"SUPER judgemental and up your ass."
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..V 5 Comments
I don't really think Japanese people are that mean... SURE there are some rude people but most people are pretgy nice and welcoming. They probably just want to know you more and they want you to learn the Japanese culture.
The best products and food and places ever
When my dad went to Japan he was just coming out of the airport when these Japanese guys just started picking on him because he is white! Rudest country ever
They may be nice in public, but they are never nice in Social Networkings. Racism are friends with the Japanese in Social Networking.V 1 Comment
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
Racist to those who can't speak Filipino
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 MisplacedV 5 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?
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.
Sweden is far from being a rude country, I live in Sweden, and I can say that everyone I meet are so kind! - darthvadernV 3 Comments
Yes please! Canadians suck and think they're superior.
