Top 10 Best Countries to Visit

The Top Ten
1 United States The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the... read more

Don't argue, "Oh, they're so racist, I never want to go there!" First of all, over half of the country is Democratic and supports Muslims, LGBT rights, and believes in equal rights.

And the reason why it's at the top is because of its variety. People are always arguing that countries like the Bahamas are beautiful because of their beaches, which I always find pathetic. The United States has something for everyone. Lush jungles with colorful plants, freezing bays with small huts, bustling cities with billboards and stores surrounding you, beautiful blue beaches with bouncing dolphins, peaceful towns bordered by mountains - anything you want!

2 France France, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories. The European part of France, called metropolitan France, extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to... read more

I'm sorry, but the US first? Since when does the US have a more interesting background than countries like Italy or France? Since when does the US have better food than France? France is an amazing country.

Paris, the city of love, the city of lights, the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre Museum, the city of fashion, because excuse me, but the USA didn't create fashion. Italy, France, and the UK did.

But what about the south? The beautiful beaches, Cannes, people, food, life... Then we have Mont Saint Michel in the north of France, and the center with mountains. So many beautiful places! France is the most visited country, so why is it here? It should be in the top three (at least).

3 Italy Italy (Italian: Repubblica Italiana) is a sovereign state and unitary parliamentary republic in south-central Europe.

Italy covers an area of 301,338 km². With almost 62 million inhabitants, it is the third most populous EU member state. Located in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, Italy shares... read more

Why is Italy not first or at least third? Italy is beautiful and so full of life. I'm Canadian, and really, people need to snap into reality and realize France is not the best country in the world. France is so stereotypical.

I went to France, and I will never go back. Anyway, Italy is my favorite place, more than my own country! Ti voglio bene.

Italy should be in first place. It has good landscapes, like all the beaches, for example. It has good food. It has the best monuments and art cities.

Only Rome is as good to visit as the United States. I understand France, but the United States shouldn't be at the top.

4 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

My aunt, her husband, and my two cousins live in Brisbane. When I was two years old, I visited them with my mother. It was a great time!

We stayed there for half a year, and now, 11 years later, I realize that Australia is definitely my favorite country to visit. I hope to visit my aunt and my cousins again.

I was in Sydney for two weeks. There was so much to do and nothing that I didn't enjoy. The Harbour Bridge, the Opera House, the Botanical Gardens, and many other attractions are all there!

And I would recommend some very fine restaurants, beaches, and tourism ferries. I loved Australia when I went there. So I reckon that you will too!

5 Canada Canada is a country in North America that is next to the United States, and it's the 2nd largest country in the world by area (size is 9.985 million km²). This country has 10 provinces, and 3 territories. Canada became a dominion on July 1, 1867. Its 10 provinces are: Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec,... read more

CN Tower, Great White North, Arctic Beauty, Niagara Falls, the Canadian Rockies, evergreen wilderness, the lakes, St. Lawrence River. Polar bears, anyone?

The great lushness of the taiga forests bears enough beauty to marvel at.

Gorgeous country, great food, kind people, many nice landscapes, and activities. It's multicultural, so you're bound to find someone to help out if needed.

I live in Ontario and love Canada. It's an amazing place to camp in the wilderness. If you don't love animals, you're not Canadian.

6 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 live in California, and it's no match for the mighty Japanese culture! I will admit, San Francisco is great (LA is way too smoggy and weird), but if you ever go to Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Yokohama, Hiroshima, and more, you will realize the intense beauty and spiritual depth, coupled with a wild nightlife as well. It's just so great!

The people are very polite, the food is amazing, and the technology they have is simply incredible. The girls are more than special, and the anime and manga industry is rapidly growing thanks to Japan. The beauty of Sakura trees, temples, and shrines is breathtaking. Lastly, it has everything America has and more, like amusement parks, beaches, mountains, and snow, not to mention the amazing nightlife of Tokyo!

7 United Kingdom The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly shortened to United Kingdom, UK or Britain is a Sovereign State located of the Northwestern coast of Europe. It is a Parliamentary Constitutional Monarchy currently lead by Monarch Queen Elizabeth II and its current prime minister is... read more

The United Kingdom comprises four countries: Scotland, England, Wales, and Northern Ireland (or the Republic of Ireland). From London, you can take a train to France (Paris) and then a boat to Germany and Spain. It's like an all-in-one vacation to all of Europe, or an easy flight to Canada, America, or Australia. Britain has toured the world and has connections to almost every country, being a country made out of countries itself.

Truly the center of the world and history, London features the Churchill War Rooms, National Gallery, Piccadilly Circus, and British Museum. The best, most ethnically diverse, and delicious food is in London, and the people are very nice.

Cornwall has beautiful beaches and coastline. The Midlands offers beautiful countryside.

Scotland boasts the most rugged and beautiful mountains, and Wales features great national parks with lots of hiking and pubs. The UK is the best place in the world.

8 Germany Germany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806... read more

One of the most highly advanced countries in all of Europe. Basically, the Japan or South Korea of Europe.

Now, Germany is the second most visited country in Europe after Spain. They overtook France.

France is the most visited country in the world, ahead of Spain and Germany. Just saying.

9 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

India is a mix of a lot of different cultures. You'll be surprised by the forts here. It has a very natural look, unlike some countries that look picture-perfect. It also has a lot of greenery.

The food is definitely something you should try. India has beaches, mountains, rivers, and deserts. The Taj Mahal, one of the Seven Wonders, is in Agra.

Every city is different from the other in some way, making it a very popular tourist destination. You should definitely try coming here.

India is one of the best countries in the world, with beautiful scenery, exciting animals, a beautiful ocean, and the opportunity to get a beach house. You can see many attractions such as the Taj Mahal, the best attraction in the world, or relax in an ocean-view beach house.

Or sign up for the military and serve and protect the country! For India!

10 New Zealand New Zealand is an island country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean.
It is situated 1,500 kilometres (900 mi) east of Australia across the Tasman Sea and roughly 1,000 kilometres (600 mi) south of the Pacific island areas of New Caledonia, Fiji, and Tonga. New Zealand's capital city is Wellington,... read more

I agree, hardly any crime, no racism, fresh air, and you don't need to travel for miles to get to the sea. It's the biggest city by land mass in the world, with a cool culture, kind people, great food, attractive people, and anyone would love to live in this beautiful country where The Lord of the Rings was filmed, and soon The Hobbit.

Our everyday scenery can beat the likes of any other country hands down. And best of all, it's first world!

Amazing country to visit, only it's so far from the rest of the world.

The Contenders
11 Spain Spain, or the Kingdom of Spain, is a country in southwestern Europe with parts of territory in the Atlantic Ocean and across the Mediterranean Sea. The largest part of Spain is situated on the Iberian Peninsula; its territory also includes the Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean, the Balearic Islands... read more

The reason I like Spain is because it is guaranteed sunshine (mostly) and only a short flight away.

Another decent place with 1,000 and more beaches and nice islands. World's #2 in non-domestic tourism.

Spain is the best country to visit. Here we can see the beach, mountain, culture, running bulls, museums, good food... and perfect sun.

12 South Africa South Africa, officially the Republic of South Africa, is the southernmost sovereign state in Africa. It is bounded on the south by 2,798 kilometers of coastline of Southern Africa stretching along the South Atlantic and Indian Oceans, on the north by the neighbouring countries of Namibia, Botswana... read more

I live in South Africa, and depending on where you go, there are no poor people, and Ebola is a global issue, which, by the way, we were not affected by. As far as I know, that disease started in West Africa. People have a completely different perspective of South Africa compared to what it is really like. Keep in mind that there is a very big difference between the continent of Africa itself and the country South Africa.

13 Croatia Croatia, officially the Republic of Croatia (independence since 1991), is a sovereign state at the crossroads of Central Europe, Southeast Europe, and the Mediterranean. Its capital city is Zagreb. It is a member of the European Union. During the Cold War it was part of Yugoslavia. It is a cultural... read more

It's such a beautiful place, and their beaches are gorgeous. I've been there about 8 times and I already want to go back!

14 Norway Norway, officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a sovereign and unitary monarchy in Northern Europe whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula plus the island Jan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard... read more

One of the best countries to visit in the world, no contest. Norway's quality of life is considered one of the best in the world. Its crime rate is so low that crime happens very rarely. The citizens in Norway are friendly towards tourists and are even fluent in English.

Norway has several gorgeous and breathtaking places worthy for tourists to visit, especially the Northern Lights. Their public transportations are actually clean, and their cuisine is also one of the most delicious in the world. Not to mention their beautiful cold weather, a perfect escape from hot countries. Clearly, Norway is a great country for anyone to visit. It is totally worth it.

15 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

A lot of shocking and unimaginable things could be seen, found, and experienced in the Philippines. I remember a friend telling me that his first experience there was indeed "culturally shocking," as if it was the world turned upside down.

But as shocking as it is, the Philippines ironically offers the most heartwarming reception that any person could get. So much so that even the term friendly turns out to be an understatement. In short, it's not just a place that gives one an awesome experience of Mother Nature. It might as well be appropriate to say that it's a place that could change you.

16 Greece Greece, officially the Hellenic Republic, is a country in Southeast Europe. It is situated on the southern tip of the Balkans, and is located at the crossroads of Europe, Asia, and Africa. Greece shares land borders with Albania to the northwest, North Macedonia and Bulgaria to the north, and Turkey... read more

I cannot believe that Greece isn't even in the top 10. It has fantastic islands for a great time in the summer, friendly people, exciting weather, the best food in Europe, and many other great things.

Also, Greece is one of the most ancient and historical countries in the world. We all must be proud of this country because it has contributed significantly to culture and humanity.

I do not understand why this is not first. The other countries would not be what they are today without Greece. Wake up call, they created civilization! Greece by far surpasses all but sadly, people will deny what they know to be true.

Seriously, England? I can't help but laugh.

17 England England, previously the Kingdom of England, is a constituent country of the United Kingdom along with Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

England can trace its history as far back as the 10th century, but modern England didn't start till the Norman Invasion of 1066. In 1535, England annexed... read more

I am ashamed to say that although I am British, there are so many places I have not visited here! My favorite places are Cornwall, Devon, Isle of Wight, Wales, The Cotswolds, and Salisbury.

Also, Bath for a day trip is amazing with the Georgian architecture and, of course, the incredible street music.

I live in London and all these monuments are amazing! I visit the countryside often, and it is brilliant. Nice country.

18 México Mexico, officially the United Mexican States, is a federal republic located in North America. The country is located between the U.S. and Central America, and is known for its Pacific and Gulf of Mexico beaches and its diverse landscape of mountains, deserts, and jungles.

If you go to any beach, you'll realize what a nice country it is and how intense its pre-Hispanic history is. I dare say the pyramids are even more exciting to explore than those in Egypt.

Not only beaches and history. Mexico offers a wide range for every taste, from tropical rainforests to the desertic north.

Viva Mexico, with its rich culture, delicious food, good music, and gorgeous landscapes. Almost all weathers are found in this country.

19 Ireland Formed in 1916 after the Easter uprising, Ireland is a small country with a population of roughly 5 million.

Beautiful place to go if you love nature and want to see the sights. Amazing natural cliffs, beaches, and hills. Also, fun castles!

Where I live, we get like 6 tourist buses today, and they all love it here!

I live here and am glad that we are getting so much praise!

20 Switzerland Switzerland, officially the Swiss Confederation, is a federal republic in Europe. It consists of 26 cantons, and the city of Bern is the seat of the federal authorities... read more

Switzerland has amazing hotels and great sites to visit. You can do everything from zip-lining to swimming in lakes. You can go on long hikes to see the mountains and nature.

This is a great country to visit if you love the mountains and nature. It also has the best chocolate in the world.

21 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 would like to see Cristiano Ronaldo and other famous Brazilian soccer players compete in the FIFA World Cup 2016! That would be fun! And then we can go to the beach in Rio, then watch the big parades!

I lived in Brazil! It's a good place, especially if you like the sun. There are many good and pretty beaches, but there is a bit of crime in the big cities like Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.

Hugs

The most friendly people and one of the most beautiful countries.

22 Namibia Namibia, officially the Republic of Namibia, is a country in southern Africa whose western border is the Atlantic Ocean. Its capital city is Windhoek. It shares borders with Angola to the north, South Africa to the south and Botswana to the east.

The most beautiful country in all of Africa. Wish I could go there one day!

23 Iceland Iceland is a Nordic island country in the North Atlantic Ocean and the most sparsely populated country in Europe. Iceland's capital and largest city is Reykjavík, which (along with its surrounding areas) is home to over 65% of the population. Iceland is the only part of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge that... read more

Absolutely stunning with the nicest people.

I want to see their geysers and volcanoes! Too bad its food supposedly isn't anywhere near as good as that of other European countries, though.

24 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,... read more

Turkey is home to Istanbul, one of the most ancient cities in the world. Istanbul has been a capital city for 1,600 years, a significant city for 3,000 years, and a settlement for 300,000 years. Istanbul is priceless and unlike any other city in the world.

Besides, Turkey is the bridge between Asia and Europe, has four seas, and three climates. Turkey is a place for everyone.

I loved Turkey and how friendly everyone was. Although I am British, they did not detect an accent and assumed that I was from Finland or Denmark because I could be understood!

I love Turkey so much! The meals are so yummy. When I say I'm Japanese or I'm from Japan, the great Turkish people try to hug us. They speak some Japanese words and tell us some historical episodes that make us interesting.

Love y'all.

25 Fiji Fiji, officially the Republic of Fiji, is an island country in Melanesia in the South Pacific Ocean about 1,100 nautical miles northeast of New Zealand's North Island.

I went there twice when I was 5. I went swimming in a huge swimming pool with rocks that I rested on when I got cramps. I met nice kids there, and the food was spectacular, especially the watermelon.

They sold Coco Pops at the snack bar, and the hotel was so comfortable. Who wouldn't like Fiji?

Fiji is awesome. Beautiful beaches, great weather, friendly people. What else is there to like?
