The world's unfriendliest country: Have you been here?

If you're hoping for friendly locals, don't go here


Rude or unfriendly locals can completely ruin a holiday. So if you're going away to cheer yourself up, there are a few places you might want to avoid.

A recent report by the World Economic Forum named Bulgaria, Venezuela and Russia three of the most unfriendly destinations for tourists.

Meanwhile, the friendliest nation of all is a freezing European country (can you guess where?) which topped the list for its warmth towards tourists.

The Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Report ranked 140 countries according to attractiveness and competitiveness in the tourist industry.

The friendliness of a country, or "attitude of population toward foreign visitors", was measured on a scale of 1 (very unwelcome) to 7 (very welcome) and the results are surprising.
