World's Friendliest Countries No 21



Ease of settling in: 7

Feeling at home: 16

Finding friends: 8


Kenya is filled with dramatic landscapes to explore. Situated along the East African coastline on the Indian Ocean, it's home to an abundance of wildlife. In fact, visitors can take safaris to check out the annual wildebeest migrations.

However, Kenya has drawn the world’s attention for crime, terrorism and kidnapping, and travel there should be undertaken cautiously. The country ranks quite low in ease of travel, safety and security and political stability. For visitors who do want to explore Kenya, though, the people are quite friendly, with 85 percent of expats considering the local population to be generally friendly (compared to 68 percent globally).

World's Friendliest Countries: No 22


Thailand offers an array of places to visit, from lovely beaches to the ultramodern capital city of Bangkok to the ancient Buddhist temples scattered around the countryside.

One of four African countries on this list, Egypt is home to several monuments that date back to the time of the pharaohs. Giza's Pyramids and Great Sphinx, as well as the temples and tombs of Luxor, are all reasons to visit.

As the 15th-most populous country in the world, it's no wonder that locals know how to treat each other well. That said, issues with terrorism mean that visitors should travel with caution in certain parts of the country.

However, Greece is not without its faults. It ranks dead last in the survey's Personal Finance Index, so if you plan on making money here on your travels, think again

Pretty much anyone who travels to New Zealand reports that the Kiwis (local New Zealanders) are some of the nicest people. Here, the phrase, "She'll be right," is one locals say often as a way to express that things will work out.

This easygoing lifestyle and can-do attitude is simply fun to be around, and their humble nature makes them all the more charming.
