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 is the world's largest democracy. India has a population which is very diverse in almost all aspects. All men do not harass women. Not everyone is poor. The rate of crimes again women is more in usa and other countries compared to India. The population density here is far lesser compared to Japan, Korea, etc. some people say there are very less resources in India, what would you talk about Japan? India has human resource and we haven't used in a proper way yet. What government support do you need? Support your earnings? Give you money when you don't find a way to earn?
If the country is filthy or dirty it's because of those people who throw garbage on the roadsides in India while they don't drop a pinch of waste in western countries. If you have so much to talk about India, what did you do to make it better? If your not happy with it change it.
There are so many problems with the government because of the vast democratic setup. The decision taken must be ...more
Has huge problems with Hindu extremism and war mongering along with disturbing peace in the region. The social fabric includes have caste system which gives hierarchy to people, which is the example of how backward the thinking is in India. While all of India might not be so bad, its certainly safe to say most of it is and is best to be avoided. Especially if your a female.
Would never EVER live in India as a Muslim female. As a side note, It's shameful how the very group that built India's most beautiful architecture, introduced the food, the music, many languages, the heritage that the world loves India for today - those very people (Muslims) are shunned and disrespected in Indian communities. Shame on India.V 384 Comments
Why is this lower than India?
Communist people are trapped their and are killed for trying to go to another country
Do I have to explain?
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...V 97 Comments
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.
People of the country are good just little nomad, need a good leader and need technology and military advance so it can protect its people.V 14 Comments
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.
Country filled with terrorists and muslim extremists
I think every one should respect that God has given them such a beautiful country to live in. I would personally say the Pakistan is one of the best country in the world and if people can't respect it then they shouldn't be giving some rubbish information about Pakistan.

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 repetition ...more
I had been offered a job in China, but I refused and I don't regret. I wouldn't go to China even if I had all-paid expenses. Very racist, backward country. Their treatment of animals, especially those poor dogs is just horendous, unspeakable and sick. China should be boycotted by EVERY decent country in the world. I hope America nuke China. This country should not exist.
Worst country ever...

Not so perfect place to live but, Philippines could be considered to be a good place to live. Although, there are some problems that could happen in this place, there is also a 100% that you could survive in this place. Just don't be so complacent and always avoid too much closeness to its people. Always wear an amulet for protection and always expect the unexpected. As a total summation of my conclusion, Philippines doesn't deserve to be number 6. It should be number 15. Filipino people only hurts fellow Filipino people. Unless, you are a kid, most of the Filipino kids will bully you or discriminate you. But, I don't think that this only happens to Philippines. I know, most of the countries children will do the same. It's the nature of the children.
This accused, savage excuse for a country makes countries like Mexico and even India look like first world countries. This country is the worst of Southeast Asia and Latin America combined. The world would be better off if Kim Jong Un invaded this cesspool.
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.

Worse than Mexico.V 88 Comments
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.
There may be multiple problems with Japan, but that does not give anyone the right to be racists. Way too many comments on this entire top tens list are racist, over stereotypical comments, not only in the Japan choice.
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.
Lot's of poverty, dumb people, gangs, ugly areas, etc. - ndia2V 58 Comments
Stupid third world country. No sanitation, stupid locals and garbage everywhere. The people are poor and smelly.
Woahwoahwoah, I saw many comments here saying that Myanmar is disgusting, has rude people,etc. But excuse me, can someone be like, a bit patient about what they type because you shouldn't just point out others country bad! Myanmar has a respectable history, and if u read them, you'd be shooked. I mean it, and people shouldn't actually call a country stupid, because, well, it is very impolite to say so, and please, go learn some manners, learn to respect things and BE POLITE!
I think Myanmar is a pretty cool country.I was born in Myanmar and I love it here. Myanmar is cramped with shiny pagodas so tourists call this country "GOLDEN MYANMAR".
I live here and ya know how bad it is? The country smells like fish, No good hospitals, Literally everyonr is hypereligious, EVEN NO MCDONALDS! :(V 18 Comments
Why is Japan above this?
Stupid dictator destroying his own country just because the people there demanding freedom, poverty of every thing, not even a mega super earthquick can cause as much destruction, what a shame!

Iraq is Witch war Witch ISIS also I hate this country why The hell Russia isn't here I hate Russia so much than China Syria And Iraq also Serbia sometimes Mexico And north Korea
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 counturyV 11 Comments
Its because Bangladesh is a sick Japan
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 everV 23 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.
I think its ok I love ka'bah
Worst country, heat, Conservative clerics all around, I just hate that
Saudi Arabia made a Bad South park ripoff called Block 13.V 18 Comments
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
Atheist get executed There
Looks like you know nothing about Maldives. Hater gonna hate, but I am unable to imagine who would.
It's not that the country is bad, it's the local people living there. Honestly they are the most violent, simple minded, arrogant lot that you will ever meet.V 8 Comments
Religious freedom (although Christian Churches are required to fill out attendance forms and leaving Islam will result in imprisonment, but it's still pretty free).
Soviet Union-style Communist government (it has to go in my opinion).
Just as bad as modern Russian Federation.
How to fix the Problems:
GET RID OF THE COMMIE GOVERNMENT!
Dictator country!, they force you what to wear, listen, no parties no freedom, its the worst country EVER!
Do you know where is iran?!?!
Here is a real hell
Not a country
Not 10 in the lidt, first of all
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
Indonesians are the antithesis of the Chinese and Japanese. If a Chinese was brutally killed, I bet they would laugh and joke about it.
It's so bad I'm thinking of moving out of my own country
How is Japan worse than this!?V 27 Comments
Lots of hungry people who constantly hassle tourists for money. Kinda sad once you think about it though.
I enjoyed staying in Laos for a winter holiday, because it was warm and nice, but it's dirty. And they kept on wanting my money for some junk. - redhawk766
Laotians are the worst, they are the laziest people you probably have ever met and very selfish
Communist has never been goodV 6 Comments
Stupid K-pop "music" (more like ear cancer). This country is worse than Honduras.
Korea is the best!
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.
No, they don't my cousin lived there for years and they were nice to him. - VotebotingsucksV 39 Comments
Too racist and full of greedy people. Ugh please I'm so dissapointed of this country.
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
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

Why is this country not at least in the top 5? It is considered one of the worst nations to be a woman, plus, constant bombings and famines. It is nearly as bad as Syria but often tends to be overlooked.
The poor place is basically a drone testing range :/
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.

The worst country in the world. Check a few YouTube videos about their racism and you will be shocked
Best country in the world
An above average country. Small and peaceful. Less people, less crimes, less corruption
This country is so poor, it's worse than Mexico.
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!
The president of Vietnam is messed!V 8 Comments

I highly recommend going to Thailand before you display your opinion here. It is different for everyone. I have been there several times to many cities and all I have seen are extremely kind people, extraordinary food, and a culture that will blow you away. This is my opinion. Say what you want, but I LOVE THAILAND!
Thailand is the best place to live.
Thailand is a very nice countryV 6 Comments
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.
It's a heaven on earth.V 8 Comments
Kuwait is good and not too religious like Saudi Arabia! They friendly and rich! The Kuwait city is very rich and one of the happiest city! This whole nation is happy!

A independence country, with lots of freedom.
I'm a Canadian, I love Taiwan so much.
People there are narrow thinking square heads, very unfriendly and self centered, the country is only notable for the Palace Museum

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.
Children have to do a lot of homeworks every day, so they don't have much time for do whatever they want
Most polluted city in the world
Rude is part of criminal behaviour.

Religiously oppressive country, nothing much going on industry-wise apart from oil and gas.
This place blows! Best part about it was when I was there during 1975! Beautiful scenery, horrible people. Overall rate this country 2.5/5
It is a nice country. Beautiful.
