Since our 10 rudest nations on the planet post earlier this month proved to be so popular, and since Lonely Planet has just released a list of the 10 friendliest countries in the world, we’d thought we’d also post something a little more positive. You may recall that last month we also highlighted those nations that were at the bottom of the rude list and I suppose you could suggest that ‘least rude’ might also mean ‘friendliest’. †If that were the case, our 10 friendliest nations according to Skyscanner would be as follows:
2. Caribbean region
3. The Philippines
7. New Zealand
Lonely Planet sees it somewhat differently, though. †Their list of the 10 friendliest countries is as follows:
Earlier this year, Forbes came up with a ’10 friendliest countries’ list of their own, which is again quite different:
1. New Zealand
3. South Africa
It’s interesting that not one country is common to all three lists, so it just goes to show there’s little in the way of agreement on the subject. †We have some countries appearing here that are on the earlier rudest nations list.
Which countries do you think are the friendliest?
