Who are the Happiest People in the World? Photo Travel Story
When I got married in the Pacific island nation of Vanuatu it was listed the happiest place on earth here.
So what’s the secret to happiness in Vanuatu? Is it the simple island lifestyle, the strong family connections or the bright clothes? Could it be the balmy tropical weather and stunning scenery? Or maybe it’s all of those things.
Here are some photos I took of some happy ni-Vanuatun people while I was traveling through. I hope their happy faces make you feel happy too.
What country do you think has the happiest people in the world?
This is great! So interesting to see a people who don’t need stuff or money to make them happy.
Not Scotland!! There are many hilarious people there but many grumpy folks too… especially on rainy days. I find people in Sydney very jolly, but have yet to see a man with a flower behind his ear. So Vanuatu wins!
Some people are happiest when they have something to be grumpy about.
Oh dear, that’s so true:)
It must be something to do with the weather!
I wouldn’t have expected it (given an fairly recent and especially ugly war), but Cambodia! We found almost all the Cambodians we talked to to be absolutely open, happy, and smiling.
I have yet to visit Cambodia, it sounds fantastic and happy, friendly people are always a huge drawcard for my travels.
It’s true! The people of the pacific Isles are a blessed people and it’s a treasure to be around them!
