World's Friendliest Countries: No 18


Ease of settling in: 26

Feeling at home: 42

Finding friends: 13

Few travelers need to be told what to see in Israel, where three major world religions — Christianity, Judaism and Islam — claim holy sites. It might be surprising that a country well known for strife ranks in the top 25 most friendly countries, but expats find Israel warm and welcoming despite its many problems.

It does rank lower in safety and security, but much higher for leisure options, reflecting the diversity of geography and attractions in the country. Expats also say it’s difficult to get used to the local culture in Israel, but travelers enjoy the passionate and vibrant culture in smaller doses.
