How is the Uk overated? Or the US?

A country that is really overated is Monaco, yes there are rich people, yes there is a casino, but really what makes this place that much better than most other upmarket med towns?

Underated: many countries not overrun by tourists...the scenery of central africa is superb, and the culture something else (a bit of a shock at first), eastern europe can be utterly beautiful, Taiwan (my friend raves about the place but otherwise i never hear about it).

Overrated:

1. North America: U.S.

2. South America: Argentina

3. Africa: not really any country... seems like the world unfortunately has too many negative images of the entire continent to give a damn about overrating anything.

4. Asia: China

5. Australia and the Pacific Islands: Australia, Tahiti

6. Europe: Italy, France


Underrated:

1. North America: Mexico

2. South America: Brazil, Peru

3. Africa: every country

4. Asia: Philippines, India

5. Australia and the Pacific Islands: New Zealand and all the little tiny islands except the 1 mentioned above in the overrated list.

6. Europe: Portugal, Andorra, The Netherlands and every slavic country.

I would include Russia in this list however I didn't categorize it as it falls in 2 continents and is underrated in both continents imo.

how in the hell is the U.S. overrated? Have you people actually visited America or just seen it on t.v. and assumed it is? These overated/underrated thing is really immature. How can you judge an entire nation without fully experiencing the culture by visiting every corner of it? Who overrates the U.S. anyway..everyone outside the country seems to talk shit about it.

In Europe, Slovenia is truly an underrated country. I remeber being there on a one-day trip throughout the country and oh my, for being such a small country it had almost everything! From the shores of the Adriatic, the hills and forests near Ljubljana (one of the world´s smallest capitals), the great fields and plains near the border to Hungary and of course, the sub-Alpine-Alpine mountains in the north.

In Asia my vote goes to Libanon. Sure, there has been some political unrest after the civil war but it wasn´t called "The Switzerland of Middle East" for nothing. You are always near the snow-rich mountains and the palms by the sea, you reach everything in the country in no time (except for traffic jams).

What now strikes me is that I love these countries because of their small size and they have almost every type of landscape (sea, mountains, plains, hills, temperate climate etc) reachable in almost no time wherever you are in the country.

everyone thinks the US is over rated? i would say that either youv never realy got the chance to feel all of what the country has to offer or your just plain jelouse. i think the US is rated well becouse it is an awsom country. i know that might come across as ignorant but the bottom line is this country is practicly paved with gold .for those who have brains and are willing to work hard almost everything is for the taking. theres a reason why US citizens have a real county pride and can even come accross as snooty.every corner of the country is dif. and every city is unique. all kinds of terain. all kinds of entertainment from nyc to vagas to skiing the rockies to the grand canyon to beautifull beaches.you might find some hangups about the US but overall this country does not lack anything! the problem is that people dont know how good things are untill they loose it.and all they like to do is complain about things . you can give the people of the world the greatest country in history (US) and thell find things to complain about. somtimes people just piss me off . thats not to say other countys arent good. cuz other countries are cool as hell but to shit on the US is just plain Arragent. i wouldent say its overrated but i would agree about some of the other countries being under rated.

OOOOOOO someone seems to have a stick up his ass.

Get over it! Some people think the U.S. is overrated; it's an opinion.... GET A LIFE!

I've been to many parts of the U.S. and find that most (if not all of them w/ the exception of Chicago, Boston and the California coastline and interior) of the U.S. is overrated; you have a problem w/ that too bad!

The U.S. is a great country; it's just hyped up sometimes to levels that to me can seem a bit unbearable at times (considering my country is constantly overshadowed w/ yours)...
