20 Best Countries to Visit and Stay to Avoid World Disorder

The harmonious operation of a society without violence or conflict is what describes peace. It is equated to the absence of hostility, or the existence of healthy international relationships, justice in political relations, recognition of equality and safety in matters of economic and social welfare. Because peace is always what we so loved, as it is an indispensable ingredient to man’s happiness, we are willing to do everything to help preserve it, even sacrifice to defend it, or even go to places where we can likely find it.

As we find ourselves troubled, it is reassuring to know that there are still places on earth that we can go to avoid most sorts of fear, conflicts and disorders that have been hounding us. In this article I am showcasing a handful of countries which are not only good performers in world peace but are also excellent places to experience the wonders of their nature and hospitality of their people. Take a look at this wonderful collection and be amazed by its majesty. Also, if you want to build a travel website to showcase your travel images you should check this article about travel themes for WordPress. Enjoy!



Countries to Visit

1. New Zealand

New Zealand

New Zealand boasts of scenic mountain chains, breathtaking coastlines, indented fiords and lush rainforests. It is a haven for those who seek peace and relaxation away from fatigue and stress. It ranks first in Global peace index which makes it the foremost destination of those who seek refuge from societal disarray and confusion.

2. Iceland


This Nordic state flaunts the first-rate literacy, longevity, income, and social cohesion by world standards. Its people enjoy peace and stability insofar as it is a very peaceful nation with avowed policy of neutrality.

3. Finland


Is the eighth largest country in Europe in terms of area and the most sparsely populated country in the European Union.  Winter holiday in Finland is perfect for hardy skiers. One of the high scorers in Global Peace Index, this nation is definitely one of the places visitors would love to stay for a long time.

4. Japan


Japan is blessed with the abundance of beautiful scenery that nature has to offer. It has one of the world’s lowest crime rates. A stay in Japan will surely be one the memorable moments that one can only hope would last forever.

5. Canada


Canada is the second largest nation in the world but it is also one of the most sparsely populated. This North American nation is truly a haven for those who are weary and tired because it pampers visitors and would even invite them to stay and enjoy life away from global upheavals.

6. Denmark


Denmark is nestled between the Baltic Sea off its east coast and the North Sea off its west coast. This friendly country has a charm and appeal all of its own and is a mix of forests, ancient castles, busy cities and sprawling countryside. Once the place of mighty Vikings, Denmark is home to peace loving and wonderful people who made the nation great in all ways. It belongs to the top of a the list of peace loving nation prepared by Global Peace Index.

7. Germany


From the high Alps in the South, the Bavarian plain, and the flowing hills of central Germany to the coast of the North and Baltic Sea all look like a miniature train landscape packed with the nicest of old towns, medieval houses, gothic churches and small villages. One of the highly industrialized nations on earth, Germany has one of highest standard of living. You may find it odd that I added Germany due to its history, but I would not believe future World Disorders to spawn around Germany.

8. Australia

Pinnacles Dessert

The season in Australia is as diverse as the country itself.  One can ski and snowboard down Victoria’s powdered slopes or snorkel and dive the balmy waters of Queensland’s Great Barrier Reef.

9. Bhutan


Bhutan, the Land of the Thunder Dragon, is no ordinary place. Besides the stunning natural scenery, the enduring image of the country for most visitors is the strong sense of culture and tradition that binds the kingdom and clearly distinguishes it from its neighbors.

10. Costa Rica

Costa Rica

From active volcanoes and white sand beaches to lush rainforests, Costa Rica has it all. It has a very stable political makeup and a stringent adhesion to neutrality. It is one of the good performers in Global Peace Index.

11. Switzerland


Known for it’s pristine beauty, Switzerland is always the destination of many visitors from all over the world. The Swiss Alps beckon everybody for the sheer breathtaking beauty. With known history for neutrality Switzerland is not likely to be dragged to any armed confrontation with any nation of the world. It’s friendly stance towards any nation thus is welcome sign for you to stay and enjoy what life is in the safe embrace of the Swiss Alps.

12. Spain


Spain is splattered with many gleaming beaches, flamenco bailors (dancers) swirling in color and bullfighters who show off their courage in the bullrings. Spectacular green mountains seem to glide into the wild blue Atlantic in the north. Historic, solitary castles and medieval towns are found in the interior. White villages glitter in interior Andalucía. These are just some of the gems this peaceful and friendly Iberian nation has in its bosom.

13. Chile


Chile is a pretty safe place for visitors. It is a politically stable country, and travelers don’t need to take more than the common precautions. This South American nation is indeed one of the destinations that you must consider if you want to go on vacation.

14. Ireland


Ireland lies to the northwest of continental Europe and is surrounded by hundreds of islands and islets. To the east of Ireland is Great Britain, separated from it by the Irish Sea. There  are three World Heritage Sites on the island: the Brú na Boinne, Skellig Michael and the Giant’s Causeway. One of the top ten in the world in Global Peace index, staying in scenic Ireland will undoubtedly be a great experience.

15. Malaysia


Malaysian jungle in Borneo is home to orangutans, granite peaks and remote tribes. This nation has an impressive variety of microcosms ranging from the space-age high-rises of Kuala Lumpur to the smiling longhouse villages of Sarawak , and the calm and powdery beaches along its coastlines. A place like no other, this peaceful and friendly Southeast Asian nation is a hospitable and accommodating host to visitors.

16. Portugal


Portugal is defined as a Mediterranean climate, and is one of the warmest European countries. Its northern landscape is mountainous towards the interior with several plateaus indented by river valleys. Rich in culture and history, this progressive state in the Iberian Peninsula, is a homely attraction to visitors being a good performer in terms of peace and friendship.

17. China


China is a land of striking contrast with the glittering skyscrapers of Shanghai on one side and the rustic and gloomy environment in the interiors. Rich in culture, arts and history, this vast place has all the good things everybody needs for leisure and relaxation. Taking a visit to this immortal place of wonders is surely everybody’s dream.

18. France


Famous for its wines, France is a very good place to visit and stay if you want to go away from your life’s boring routine. Experience the soothing tranquility of its countryside and at the same time engage in a memorable night out in Paris by combining a visit to the Eiffel Tower and Seine River cruise. Don’t also miss the grandeur of the Versailles Palace and Gardens side by side with the visit to the Louvre Museum. A stay in this country is surely be a worthwhile experience.

19. United Arab Emirates


The UAE is  a melting pot of cultures. People of all nationalities, flock to this nation in the gulf to work and relax on its beaches, posh hotels, and other amenities of pleasure. Located in the place where earthquakes are rare and shielded at the same time by the Indian subcontinent, the Arabian Peninsula, and thus the beaches in UAE are safe havens to get away from worries and stress.

20. Kazakhstan


The landscape of Kazakhstan is diverse. The northern forest-steppe turns into steppe, half-deserts and deserts in the South. If you are enthralled by the emptiness and mystery of the steppe, it is your first port of call in you Central Asian adventure, and there is much for the intrepid traveler to enjoy. In general, Kazakhstan is a very friendly country where foreigners are respected as hospitality is one of the Kazakh main traditions.

Philippines are one of the best tourist destination in the world. Where you can see the most beautiful beach in the world the ”Boracay” in Aklan. And also you can see the one of the 7 wonders of nature the ”Underground River” in palawan, where it is in second spot. Theres a lot of things here that you will be fun !!! Filipinos are so hospitable :) because ITS MORE FUN IN THE PHILIPPINES :-)


keara June 10, 2013 at 10:42 am

Just came back from my 9th trip to India. Again I felt totally safe – during the day as well as in the evening hours, in the countryside as well as in the cities. I guess it is a combination of strong family ties, a pride in India’s tradition of hospitality, which most Indians want to uphold, and an omnipresence of people that function as a shield against violent crime directed at foreign visitors – despite wide-spread poverty.
Yes, tourist strongholds such as Agra and Varanasi have their share of touts and hasslers but head to India’s lesser known areas and you’ll discover a very different – a welcoming and helpful – attitude toward foreigners.


Moon December 2, 2012 at 9:43 pm

I absolutely adore Malaysia. Not being biased to my own country, but where else can you find safety, culture, nature and leisure at one place? I find that tourists pouring to Malaysia would prefer to visit the beautiful beaches, islands and mountains rather than metropolitan KL. But one should also visit other cities like Penang, Malacca, Ipoh, Kota Bharu for the best culturan experience, ever! It’s mixture of Malay, Chinese, Indian and European influence at once. Nevertheless, Sabah and Sarawak do offer exquisite cultural experience at their clean cities as well as the awesome jungles, caves, beaches, islands and diving sites. You would need to come here a lot of times because it has a lot to offer!


ria November 24, 2012 at 2:03 pm

my favourite countries are-spain , switzerland , france and u.s.a.
i think they hve’nt shown the best picture of france , which they should.
and u.s.a should also be in the list but spain on top.
new zealand is awesome.


Nad November 13, 2012 at 7:21 am

Glad to know Malaysia on the list. Yes :) Malaysia one of the beautiful ever country with the tropical rainforest. You will find peace in here. Malaysia also the best country in culture, the environment, and also the good people will easily to help you when you need a help :)


German November 8, 2012 at 8:54 pm

Argentina is by far much more interesting than any of the countries listed here.


Rickboy October 15, 2012 at 11:05 pm

Wonderful photos!
I felt safe in Malaysia but found it less inspiring than other south-east Asian countries. Nature has been severely damaged in parts of Malaysia due to slash-and-burn land clearance, and the country lacks the awe-inspiring temples, palaces and monuments that other countries in the region offer.
The UAE is the dullest country in terms of scenery I have seen. Neighbouring Oman has more variety and a more authentic character and is just as safe.
But otherwise, many good choices!

Disclaimer: Minh Bui is from Laos.


Minh Bui September 19, 2012 at 10:14 am

Absolutely lack of Laos, the most peaceful country in South East Asia with beautiful Luang Prabang
I dont think China ans Malaysia are 100% suitable to this top list.
Disclaimer: im not Laos people.


Rolexmonger September 17, 2012 at 11:49 am

Well, it is so nice to see my favourite country in the whole world posted in number one spot. Without a doubt, New Zealand has it all if we are speaking about natural beauty. There is no nation on the face of the eartch that is quite as pretty as this one. Social problems aside, the landscape itself is made for the immortals, if such exist, let alone Kiwis, who can stand to improve.


jake September 10, 2012 at 7:32 am

Sulawesi island ,lombok island,bali island and raja ampat in papua wud be the best … Iv been there twice !!!!


kai October 26, 2012 at 12:24 pm

what with islamic terrorist groups,what about the bali bombings, where have you been


GRACIE August 12, 2012 at 7:15 am



Esava Tabua March 11, 2013 at 2:36 am

I think Fiji islands should be there too…one should visit the islands and see it to himself the beauty of the islands !!


Sam August 10, 2012 at 6:12 pm

I agree with some, but Spain really? Yes because bullfighting and open racism are very peaceful. Totally agree with New Zealand being Number One but I do think that Scotland and England should be on here, a bit too obvious choices in some places.


kyle May 20, 2013 at 12:33 am

I knew ireland would be up there…


abdullah August 8, 2012 at 10:56 am

united arab emirates should be at the top


Raj July 22, 2012 at 2:44 am

Ipoh in Malaysia is the best town,cheap ,lots of hills around and relax place.


Tom July 16, 2012 at 9:11 am

I recently left the USA, and now live in Denmark. Nice to see its on the list, Sweden and Norway are also stable countries, surprised they did not make it. All the scandinavian countries provide a high standard of living, higher than that of the USA even.
I do feel much safer in Denmark, Danes are very nice, and helpful. Most Danes know English. Only the weather would be the only drawback, Scandinavian winters are harsh. Denmark does not use the Euro, which is good, it has escaped the worst of the crisis in southern Europe, and its economy is still growing, not by much, but it still is. Many farms litter the Danish landscape and many are self sustaining, Denmark gets most of its power from renewable energy. And the public transport system is excellent. Taxes are high but you get what you pay for. :-)


Mike July 11, 2012 at 10:51 pm

I absolutely loved Spain the most out of the several places that ive gone to. Listed on this website, ive been to france, germany, Spain, portugal and switzerland and i hope to travel to many more!


Faith October 21, 2013 at 5:51 am

Wow you’ve been a lot of places, and im embarrassed to say that i have not been anywhere but Germany when i was a kid because my parents were in the military. I must ask, financial wise, how much would you need to take a nice trip on the trips you’ve been on and how long did you stay for. I have 2 small kids and a husband i would want to take along, plus i home school my children and would love to go different places for them to explore. Thanks and hope to hear from you soon.


Patrick June 26, 2012 at 7:14 pm

Peter, Welcome to Malaysia.


petter June 27, 2012 at 1:53 pm
petter June 26, 2012 at 2:52 pm

wished to be in japan and china…


Oliver June 4, 2012 at 10:36 pm

Well i ve travelled around a lot.. you want something missing? LEBANON the pearl of the middle east the beauty of the perfect combinaison of occidental and oriental cultures.


Stevie June 4, 2012 at 6:05 pm

FYI, Borneo jungle is in Kalimantan, its in Indonesia NOT Malaysia. :)


Patrick June 5, 2012 at 9:08 am

Stevie, Borneo is an island; consisting of 3 countries (Malaysia, Brunei and Indonesia) that is East Malaysia ( State of Sabah, State of Sarawak; and Limbang & Lawas District), Brunei and the Kalimantan Provinces of Indonesia. If you are referring to jungles as a whole then it is Borneo jungles.


Mason May 24, 2012 at 9:22 am

Well I live in New Zealand, the most beautiful country by FAR. There is no reason to be worried about the rising sea levels at all, everyone here is so friendly, everything is so beautiful, the busiest city in our country is Auckland and that has less than 2 million people! it may be so far away from the rest of the world, but we are the most ahead of time, and it has beautiful untouched landscapes. The best time to come is spring or summer, and Kiwi Christmas on the beach, playing cricket, are amazing! It is well worth going that bit further than Australia, we are nothing like that country no matter what anyone else says.


Lydia February 13, 2013 at 4:12 pm

This sounds superbly awesome when the country I’m living is expecting a population of 6.9million within the next 20 years.

Greetings from Singapore!


Boris September 3, 2013 at 3:13 pm

I’ve been in many countries and I would put Peru on the first place to visit! There are so many wonders of the world…. Machu Pichu, Nasca Line, Titicaca Lale …. In Lima museum you’ll see a skull of alien!!! Really fantastic place. Just make sure you won’t get high attitude sickness.
