GCC countries score on friendliness index

GCC countries score on friendliness indexSeveral Gulf Coast countries scored high on a poll run by HSBC about the friendliness of their nations.  Despite recent political unrest, Bahrain scored highest at #13, based on factors that had ex-pats consider their experience of language-learning, integration into culture, and ease of befriending locals. The UAE landed at #23, and Saudi Arabia and Qatar came in at 24th and 25th respectively.

The USA came in 4th, with South Africa at 3rd and Bermuda at 2nd.  The friendliest nation in the world is apparently Canada.  There had to be a minimum of 30 expats surveyed to make the list, so only 25 countries were on it.
