I came across this article on several websites this week. A new study by the World Economic Forum asked the question, “How welcome are foreign visitors in your country?”
The report found Iceland was the most welcoming nation. Having been there 2 years ago I can definitely agree with that. Everyone we met over there was genuinely nice and went out of their way to help us.
The 10 top and bottom countries are listed below. Let me know if you agree or disagree with the results.
Bosnia and Herzegovina
*Note that Bosnia and Herzegovina, Ireland and Burkina Faso all scored a 6.6. Also scoring a 6.6: Barbados, Canada, Thailand, Mali, United Arab Emirates, Singapore, Malta, Yemen, Belgium and Rwanda.
*Note that Mongolia scored a 5.5, a score also shared by China, Korean and Saudi Arabia.
If you are interested in visiting Iceland, the easiest way to get their from Ireland is with Wallace Travel. They organise 3 trips a year from Dublin. All the details are here
