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.
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 was raised in California inland and demoralizing is seen as normal from the beginning. You can tell from all there abuse in my writing. Think of the melting pot but just of the abusive people of the world. The education system forces "personal responsibility on unknowing children" mainly to dazzle the student body so rich and wealthy can walk out with an education, where the confused can suffer. The religious institutions are just as abusive. They will promise wholesomeness and it's a lie, most are ran by psychologist for free labor and other disgusting crimes. Being "bad" is seen as "cool". All these people have The land of World Star Hip Hop is the rudest place in the world. Why do they do this? because when there is a large neglected population there are large groups of rich and wealthy. Mexico is just as awful, they intend to make everyone poor by the pope demand. - coffeebook
US does a cruel thing call rattlesnake contest in which rattlesnakes are kept tourchered then killed then children make hand prints out of the blood. Not only this but there are school shootings and they keep insulting other countries mostly Britain
DEATH TO THE QUEEN!
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.
Nah, France is VERY RUDE! Some lady was hostile to someone at the counter in Ibis Budget when they were asking about the prices, so the customer left and didn't want to book a room anymore. Another thing, they have no manners. When you want to go get off a train, they won't make way for you to get off the train properly. They are worse than UK in my opinion.
They are really mean to travellers and foreigners.
Whenever I hear anything about france I think of my french class I have at school and then I get reALLY stressed
By far the rudest country in the world. People are dumb and professional backstabbers.
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.
Italy it's not rude. Some people think that italian rude but when I went to italy lots of people were nice
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 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.
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.
That bad government
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.
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.
Not better than Italy, same kind of behavior towards foreigners and outside world.
Language is trash
One of my relatives one said that they decided not to go to Qatar due to rudeness
Entitled and disrespectful
Hungary have rude, crazy and hateful people. This country is cursed for sure.
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...
Unfortunately hungary is full with rude people especially Budapest the capital.
When I was little, me and my family would always go to this restaurant after taking the train. Whenever I had a sad look on my face, the waiters would cheer me up. Once, when the waiter served the food, he tapped my shoulder behind me and smiled while doing a silly face.
They would do anything to ensure their happiness of their costumers. I was very fortunate to not meet anyone rude, like what some comments say...
No manners, no values, violent people, rude people, people who have no basic hygiene or education. Awful nation!
Creator of poison food and fake products.
Lack of good people
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.
Go to a restaurant in Prague.. And you'll be shocked
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!
You want to live in Czech republic? You must speak Czech fluently
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.
Serbians are very nice! I'm confused?
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.
So racist. So disrespectful to other Africans.
Most rude country in Africa
Egyptians are the most rudest, impolite & loud people I ever saw. They don't have respect for any one what so ever.
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.
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 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'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.
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
Racist, sexist, ignorant and so full of themselves
Land of online scammers and cybersex
I don't like the way how all Arab countries treat women! They're DISCUSTING!
They hate our country where we live in Canada
Russians are the meanest people on the earth when sober. When drunk, they get worse.
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!
Depends on the area.
Rude, loud and bad tourists, who insist you speak their language where ever you are.
They are kinder people than the people in Spain.
Too rude to my body
At least not all Argentinians are like that! Gosh
Indians are simply extremely rude!
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.
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.
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
Sadly some of the most ignorant people in the world. Stating that Mexico is the toilet of the world seems about right
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
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.
BURMESE people DISCRIMINATE SKIN COLR, RELIGION, ETC. EVENTHOUGH THEY DISCRIMINATE THE SAME RELIGION SAME RACE BY COMPARING WITH SKIN COLOR.
Swiss people are the devil and the world would be better off without them.
Nah, I think it would be better off without you. The world doesn't need hate like yours. - RogerMcBaloney
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.
Greeks are nice people! Greece should ranked at the top 10 least rude country.
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
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😠
Okay so I’m half Sudanese half British not trying to insult my country but it’s just president,he does not do anything
One of the worst in the world.
If I have a business in my place I will not work on this country. Once you step foot on their mainland, it's like they own your soul, it's like you had debt to them so even though they will shout, throw or say mean things to you. And also the most I hated and worst phrase they always use is 'I'm a Kuwaiti your living in my country so your working for me'. what like a dog.
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.
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..
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!
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.
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! - darthvadern
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 Misplaced
I'm from Lithuania the people can be abit racist in the country side more with the old people and people can be quite rude if you don't know the language or waste there time
Don't go to Quebec unless you wanna get screwed by those filthy French people
These people need to shut uPPP
You know they rude when you see them go on the internet and talk about the US.
Yes please! Canadians suck and think they're superior.
The Netherlands is a beautifull country! Love Rotterdam!
Horrible, ugly, disgusting nation. - tigerbw
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.
