Most Helpful Guy
The rudest: Probably Egypt. The shopkeepers there are incredibly annoying and rude. If you walk into their stores but you decide not to buy anything, they don't let you walk out again. One day I went shopping in this town outside of our hotel complex with my mom and my little sister. My sister was around 8, I was around 12 years old. My dad and big brother stayed at the hotel. So together with my mom and little sister, I went into some shops but we didn't buy anything, so the shopkeepers got really angry and aggressive. Some of them called my mom a "whore" and a "bitch" when we left the store without having purchased anything. One guy even walked afterwards in the street, yelling loudly and he started pulling us by the arm. My sister and I were still children, so it was very scary. Eventually he tried to pull my sister by the arm and she started crying because she was so scared. At that point, my mom lost it and she showed her whole motherly protectiveness by shouting at him at the top of her voice. He seemed a little surprised and backed off - but not without calling us all kinds of bad names.
The thing I really hated about Egypt is that the people there handle their poverty very badly. I do feel bad for these people and I understand their lives aren't easy but that doesn't justify you to act like a complete asshole towards western tourists.
Friendliest: Here I could name several countries but my absolute number one is Bali. The people there are relaxed, they're tolerant and above all, they're incredibly friendly. They're the complete opposite from the Egyptians. The people in Bali are also very poor - but they are also very humble about it. They love to show you their country and they don't hate you for being a rich westerner. And if you ever offer them a little gift, such as inviting them for a beer, they are very thankful. In terms of friendliness, kind-heartedness and civility, Bali is really exceptional.1
