Worst Asian Countries to Live In
The Top Ten
India is a overpopulated Hell. No proper infrastructure, no jobs even for educated, no respect for human beings, Rich people sees poor people as livestock ready for being exploited. No government support, government support only rich and people with influence in government. It does not matter whether you are engineer, doctor, or MBA You will not get good job unless you have some some reference or political influence for the job you are trying. In recent years Indian job market is almost collapsed with pay scales going down or stagnant with very high inflation, no wonder why Indian economy is not growing. Indians in general lack entrepreneurship skills, but more-ever most indians don't have financial support to convert their entrepreneuual dreams into reality. India have resources only enough to support 250 million people, not 1.25 billion people. So there is 100 extra people for every 125 people. If india does not care for its problems then soon indian society and economy is going to ...more
India will suffer from further overpopulation problems even they surpassed China. Almost every corner of India will be overcrowded. Resources will be more limited especially for tourists. Many Indians will starve as one of the consequences of overpopulation. Families will have to wait in long lines for immune shots. There will be traffic jam on every street. These are the disadvantages of living in India.
There are multiple reasons why I would say that inspite of being an Indian.
1. Corruption- Anywhere you go, government offices, schools, private organisations and most importantly the people themselves are corrupt to their bones. Everyone including me wants to make money, but here making money assumes a negative sense and people try to squeeze people out for money. Example, a school leaving certificate in India is so difficult to obtain, that you need to file a police report and have to bribe the cops, then go to the school administration and bribe them again so that you get your stuff on time. A person with economic constraints finds it terrible to lead a daily life, forget about making it big.
2. Lack of civic sense and social apathy.
People litter, spit and drive stupidly with sheer inconsideration for their fellow beings. Government has to spend heavily on cleaning up the mess and educating programmes for people. But still they don't budge even an inch. ...more
India is a a very big country. There are parts like most developed counties of Europe.. example Chandigarh...there are parts like underdeveloped countries of Africa... example Patna...Indian also like to blame their own country in front of whole world and blindly follow USA..media is the main reason for it..there are racism towards dark south Indian from fair north Indian..they insult people of west Bengal calling Bangladeshi..they insult People of North east part calling them Chinese...Indian praise white British like gods although they are the reason of many problems inside the country.. including India Pakistan permanent hatred...cities like Bangalore women have full security and freedom like Western women... whereas in villages women mainly get raped and suffer like slave.. politicians and common people are highly corrupted and just wanna rob fellow Indian and leave permanently for Europe or USA.V 333 Comments

I'm a child of South Korea (emphasis on South) who does not even know the basics of history. However, I know that North Korea has spread absolute chaos to the entire world. Definitely the worst place to live in. by the way, I'm only 13...

I think here the problem is due to illiterate and uneducated people. If here will be a good education then this country can be developed. Someone should see this. First thing is to spread peace in all, end the and war.
Has many political disturbances.
Poorest country in Asia.

I am a Hindu and I am a proud Pakistani, our country is down in few things only because of our government, and because of India's conspiracies... But we have way many positives... people here are living well... it's our media only that makes it look bad... This country is rich with resources, it has a marvelous beauty, the people are very kind, it's festivals, just everything, our education system is way better than India's... my father was in pak army, and I'd join it too... may our country get rid of all it's enemies... - lovepakistan
India's conspiracies? Better education system? Stop making stupid baseless comments.
It is the main source of terrorism...!
I am a Muslim and I hate my country Pakistan it sucks. No electricity extremely hot or cold. Terrorism. Security issues unstable political state and unwanted hassle with neighbours. Pakistan has become China's slave and no one respects Pakistan in the international stage. Lack of jobs no booming economy like India ; China ; Indonesia or even Bangladesh. Corruption. I hope authorities take action and don't blame India for all our issues.
Waste hell. An idiotic country, always trying to fight with india.V 90 Comments
Who cares about football? ISIS has executed thousands of innocent people including children, because the victims want to believe what they believe, instead of the crap that their government wants them to. - benhos
They try to think of themselves as the most westernized Asian country but I think they don't know English because instead of using the word westernized they should use terrorized
To dangerous and new wars are always coming also if you are not a Muslim you awfully die badly. it is also that they blow up peoples homes and leaving them to die. What a horrible countury

I have lived in China for 4 years, and this is what I can say:
- Constant propaganda
- Almost nobody speaks English, because they don't want to learn. And their language is extremely hard to learn, because if you say something wrong, they laugh at you, and that kills your self esteem.
- Banned are: Google, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat.
- They spit and always make that throaty, disgusting sound in the streets. Not counting the times I had a butt up my face, wondering, "will he fart on me? "
- Air pollution is awful, the case why now that I live in Switzerland, I'm still skeptical about the air (even though Switzerland is the nicest, cleanest country I've ever lived in)
- People push to get into the subway. I've been pushed and squeezed while I was trying to get in.
But it's an interesting country, nevertheless. I liked traveling in China, exploring the lands, trying their food. And some people I've met at ...more - redhawk766
Worst country ever, I was sent there on a project by my company for 2 years, just came back home recently. While there I basically could have lived in a bubble and never have to deal with the annoyances, but I am an open minded and curious person so I made the BIG mistake to try to meet local people and fit in with society. Here is what I have found:
-Xenophobia and racism are mainstream sentiments. Non-Chinese people are being singled out on a normal basis even if they speak the language and know about the local customs/etiquette. Having a normal exchange with local people is nearly impossible, everything has to be a dick waving contest. Most Chinese people automatically make assumptions based on your race or nationality.
-Sickening nationalist sentiment, "China this, China that", look down on barbarians (everyone else) and claims of racial superiority based on rather shaky national myths. “Facts” in China are accepted through wishful thinking or sheer ...more
I have many great Chinese friends, so this doesn't include every Chinese citizen, but AIMS:
1) AIR POLLUTION - sometimes over 20 times worse than Japan's
2) IMPOLITE - the subway doors open and the people can't get out
3) MEDICAL CARE - hospitals always crowded with patients feeling symptoms from air pollution
4) SPIT - there is no day you won't see someone who almost hits you with saliva
Bad to live in, but GOOD to travel in
I bet most of these people down there HAVEN'T BEEN TO CHINA. - 50V 65 Comments
Okay, okay, calm down here people, I am a filipino so you expect me to know about this place. I will show my patriotism and be hones with what I am saying here.

There are nice people, super awesome beaches and great sceneries. Yes that's true but I still don't recommend to go in this country for many many good reasons:
For white people : If you are white in this country you will flash even if you dress down and many people will bug you. Everyone will look at you because white people are very rare there. You will see very few white people in major big cities but that's about it. In countryside (barios) you wont see any. Most Filipino women dream to be with a white man so it will be very easy for you to meet some.
Security: There is no security in this country. It's almost a country without laws. Nobody respect the laws and the police don't do their job. They are not qualified nor professional. If something bad happen to you, you're on your own. The Filipino Government is very weak. Dealing with Filipino Government employees can be a huge challenge. They are payed very cheap so they do what they want. We can't rely on ...more
Worst country in SEA in terms of economic development and infrastructure, very corrupted government, dangerous in some areas (slums), food is terrible, some people will try to cheat on you (Taxis, hotels etc..).
Friendly and open minded people, English is widely spoken, Living cost is low, Cheap booze.
Philippines is calm with nice people friendly like the Spanish, it’s literally the Asian Spain nice places and nice people with crap government like Spain.V 72 Comments
Traffic and insane people. Most of the Bangladeshies even don't know what's pollution. Noise, air, water pollution is everywhere. They don't know about waste disposal and I guess they don't even care. Political situation is the worst. Politicians knows only how to gather money from the population. We pay tax but there is no benefit. I don't hate Bangladesh, but I hate these insane population. As a Bebgali I just hope and wish that they will learn to care about Bangladesh.
Dirtiest people ever
I don't think you have to be so rude
Insanely corrupt country,
We people pay tax, but get nothing in return.
There is no life security, no pollution controlling, worst ever traffic in cities, no laws work here other than bribery, foods are adulterated grossly there is none to see or oversee, all government departments are extremely corrupt and corrupt to the bone. no human rights, if you don't belong to any political parties or some sort of influential community, there is no right for you, nothing, instead you get slapped for everything you want or claim, both government and private organizations nobody hesitates to exploit, cheat, deceive. This country has becoming worst hell ever.
I hate their human rights policies.
No one actually know the real situation in Myanmar then locals. It is not just burmese people's fault, the Muslims are really rude too. (Ruder than burmese people) U haven't even heard them swearing.
It is not that bad as you saw, but until 2011 it really bad since Myanmar was under military persecution. Now NLD's in government I hope good thing happen in Myanmar now. One thing I hate about Myanmar is only Buddhism come first and Christian come last, they build pagoda in Christian state. They are just like Japan during WWII, they are rapist and brutally murderer.
Worst and most brutal country in southeast asiaV 12 Comments
Dictator country!, they force you what to wear, listen, no parties no freedom, its the worst country EVER!
"MORAL POLICE" piss you off all the time!
As an iranian with armenian origins I can safely say it surprisingly isn't the worse country. I mean sure you get treated very differently than "Muslims" but at least you have basic rights and are treated equally among the people. So that's gotta count for something.
Iranian people are richV 18 Comments
As a Muslim I really hate Saudi Arabia. They take Islam to the extreme and don't follow it themselves. Women are given a lot and I mean A LOT of rights in Islam. These pathetic Saudis just make up their own version of our religion and give the real Islam a bad name. That's the same problem with all the terrorists out there. Islam strictly condemns the killing or murdering of an innocent person, Muslim or non Muslim. These terrorists destroyed the true meaning of the word jihad and made people from around the world think that Islam is what they are when in reality that is not true.
Worst country, heat, Conservative clerics all around, I just hate that
Is the worst country ever.

This is the worst country on the planet. They are drug addicts, among every 5 people one is a drug addict. They are rapists and have low IQ 82 . Full of corruption. No one follows the rules because even the police are rapist drug addicts. It's a pure failed country
No human rights. Children are murdered by their own mothers. Majority of the parliament use illegal drugs and hire foreign prostitutes.
The most wicked person among this nation is now the president, and he supports Israel.
The people here are racists of their own kind. People who come to work here are persecuted, raped and even killed because of their race, sex or religious beliefs.
They think the world revolves around them. They are so racist and evil that when a country like India offers them financial aid they reject it but accept it from the Chinese.
People here are filthy, and filthy minded. The words they use against their best friends will make you vomit and I don't even want to ...more

Are you kidding? Japan is an amazing place, I love it. The people are nice, the technology is advanced, the food is great, the lifestyle is good, the culture is fascinating, the facilities are good, and the stuffs there are very well-made. I know that Japan still has its own cons, but still Japan is a good country.
To me, North Korea is the worst country in Asia.
I agree that Japan doesn't deserve to be on this list, because Japan's a great place with great people. It's not right to say that Japan is bad whenever there are good and bad people everywhere all over the world it's not just one place. There are plenty of good people in Japan and everywhere else in this world you just have to find them.
I'd love to vacation for awhile in Japan, but living there would be hell, since their government is almost as bad as ours. - benhos
Japan like to show off about technology so everyone will love japan.Japan is the worst countryV 48 Comments
Racism, religion fanatics, corruption, and bad school system. As a Chinese living at Indonesia, I often hear a lot of racist comments about Chinese (not everyone is racist). And as a Christian, I have to hear crap from fanatic people who force Muslim to me (not saying every Muslim is like this, I also met a lot of nice Muslims who is kind even to other religions, but I also met a lot of crazy fanatics). The school system is basically piece of crap, "Full Day School", a lot of homework, bad school facilities (I went to public school once because there's a family problem, and yeah, it's really bad. For the private school, the facilities are really great, but the school fee is very expensive and usually it's Christian/Catholic school, so most of the people prefer public school), not mentioning the very low education here (most of people here only made it until junior high school, and some only made it to elementary school or they never been to school at all). The country's ...more
Religious extremists and racism are two of biggest problems in Indonesia. And yeah the ignorant people pretend to care but not. Other than that Indonesia is an OKAY country to live in. - wackonicko
The people in Indonesian is very nice and very smart people, BUT, the government is rubbish they are corrupt and stupid. But Indonesian is not bad to live in.

Sri Lanka is a poor country and there are so many beggars on the street, etc, etc. There are good people and there are bad people. But, there are good rules here. Gay and lesbian marriages are illegal. Incest is illegal here as well unlike in America. These are the things that I love about Sri Lanka. Children could be taught to do the right things without the parents being sent to prison for child abuse. There are no gay and lesbian couples kissing on the road. I have to agree that there were a lot of rape incidents here but that isn't a huge problem compared to things like homosexuality and incest. There are homosexual couples here but it isn't legal and it would be a really stupid thing to do to start protests asking for it to be legal. Even if it was to be made legal, then majority of the people would be against it, which would be a good thing. Some idiots here tend to pick up bad qualities from people in western countries without picking up the good ones. But overall, this is a ...more
We have some money problems, but live in peace. Realty is, this is the one best country to live.
I'm an Australian, working and living in Sri Lanka. My job requires me to travel and I've lived in 14 different countires in the last 16 years. This is probably the second best country I've lived in after Germany (And Oz). The people are great, all the urban areas are pretty well developed. The rural areas have to be improved though. Main positive is definitely the people, very friendly and polite.
Sri Lanka is best than united states of America.The army forces in sri lanka is the powerfulest in the world and they also defeat the hardest enemy force l.t.t.SRI LANKA is a Buddhist proud country.In 1765 they have defeat netherlands and in 1845 they have defeat Englands and in 1605 they have also defeat portugees.SRI LANKA IS THE POWERFULEST,LOVELYEST AND THE BEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD THAT NEVER SECONDEDV 9 Comments

Bahrain is VeRY good
They are arrogant and think Chinese people are monkeys. They claim that Confucious was korean which is absurd. Hate how South Korea wants to be so "asian". South Korea is an asian subculture and will always be one. China and Japan are better asian nations.
Bad attitudes are happening in this country. Hates its own neighbor. High class. Pointing at weird looking foreigners. Arrogant.
This is kinda what people have to change here but we shouldn't look at this country bad because not all people do that. - ashlyn
I love this country bur if I went there they keep pointing and calling me a black monkey because I'm a filipino
You don't want to know the adventure with the selfish and misunderstanding people, when I was switching in South Korea to get on my plane and fly to China. Although, when I remember the story, I laugh about it.
Those people are so selfish and so misunderstanding. - redhawk766
Racist government, always say we Chinese go back to China, Indian go back to India. Government treats us like crap.
I always thought that your country is better in handling racism than mine. Chinese Indonesian here. Shocked - wackonicko
Democratic? My a**. Race do importance to control a country, Indonesia is crap, Malaysia is crap as well. Look at which race is the most in this two country, and look at result and people of the country. Two country is poor, the people is poor, and the government try to make it worst. If all other race such as Chinese or Indian or other leave this country, and left all those racist one, I can guarantee that this country will soon, become stone age.
Not only that, The Police never catch the robbers and thieves especially the motorcycle. It will be harmful for Children aged 15 and below who went to school alone and Public Transport is very horribly maintained.
If Children were not aware, it will also harmful for them. Most tourist will not going to visit Malaysia again

Racist white Jews who stole Palestinian land. Hostile people, disgusting people who keep on pulling the 2nd world war card and say "oh look what to us"the say they are the"only" democracy in the Middle East but really that's a lie cause look at the way they have oppressed the rights of the Palestinian people. Apartheid state we needs to be sanctioned like the old South Africa.
It's not even a country. Just land taken by force and then called it's own country. Heck some of the other legitimate countries don't even consider Israel as a country...

It is a nice country. Beautiful.
I am from Nepal. Our country is very small, its locked between the two biggest countries in the world I.E. India and China, our country is not even the size of one state of India so it will take some time to develop. The crime rate is very few here as compared to other countries in Asia like India and Afgansthan. There are bad people in every part of the world also in Nepal but mostly people are good and satisfied with whatever they have. Many tourists visit our country, people are poor but very few people die of hunger. However most die due to lack of health care :(
Yes 100% true. People are very friendly and generous
I've visited many asian countries. I was shocked to see Nepal being wonderfully clean and peace place even though they have a such corrupt and weak government. There is somewhat pollution in their capital city, Kathmandu, but it's not bad as it's in India and Chin. Beautiful mountains, rivers, forests, flowers and most importantly people. I can't wait to visit it again.

With similar GDP per capita to Switzerland, our living environment is worse than the third world. Corruption is never shocking to local people. Foreign people might not be able to understand how much unfairness the government created after the casino industry started to grow. The government also stole our living standard and probably transferred it to a tremendously huge number in their bank account somewhere overseas.
The worst environment in the world.
People only care about gambling and don't have a social life. They are also very unfriendly and don't want to communicate with other people. I know people from macau and they often insault other countrys and think they are the best.

Well, Vietnam is messed up right now, all thanks to the Communist (aka North):/The south had lost the war and the north took control of Vietnam (current flag:the red one with a big fat yellow star on it) ever since. And life in Vietnam isn't pretty either. I watched this vietnamese channel here in the US (SBTN, is what it is called), and they show a person getting beat up in public, just because they speak out that the policy didn't like. Basically, now you don't have rights over there:(And if you ever see a vietnamese person having the a yellow flag with three red stripes on it (South Flag), means they still consider that flag as flag of Vietnam. I belong to that flag:)
So, right now isn't a perfect time living there:(So this is right (rating).
Vietnam's a great country and all but 2 things, 1. Communism and 2. They are poor due to the war. and all of this wouldn't happened if it wasn't for the stupid French!
Vietnam is a safe country but only 3 things that I don't like about it. First the stupid communism, second I can't breath well in the some kind of big cities, third the education is not very good enough.
I lived in vietnam for 6 years now and, what a horrible experience I have had.
Diseases and sanitation, people greed and ugly hearts, bad expats came to take... I live in Hanoi, but I assume the southern part is not much better. Country is in very bad shape for normal humans to live in.
Singapore is awesome! I do not agree that Singapore should be on here.
Singapore is not perfect, but I don't think Singapore is as bad as some people think. I actually think Singapore is pretty nice to live in and I have been to Singapore for many times.
Singapore is turning Orwellian. There is no privacy. Every move you make will be tracked soon as they're heading towards a cashless society. Straight out of George Orwell's 1984. The only good thing are the infrastructures but forget about human rights and privacy. You don't get any there.
