I appreciate your effort to represent a lot differences among contries, but as brightside.me is very respectful, I must disagree with this text. Some of the comments are true but some. aren't. In Europe, you can easily find open stores, bakeries, malls on Sunday's. You can negotiate for the price on markets, somewhere even in smaller shops and so on. AND in every single country there are transporting, traffic rules everywhere, very neat laws and they are respected and followed. Brightside, I like you but please do some better research first. All of above is very easy to find out. Greetings from the Europe.
P. S. Never generalise those kind of facts. Not recommended.
All the facts about Europe are wrong...
I must mention that I am extremely disgusted that a publication has not verified any of the facts. You are just publishing stereotypes. Perhaps, it will be a bright idea to change the publication's name to Darkside.
You should be ashamed and issue public apology
Agree. The strongest person don't need to stand in queue is totally false.
you're just butthurt
Im from Europe. And just for fact here are a looot of different countries. And in most of them the stores ARE open on sundays, but not the whole day. they are open even on hollydays but again not the whole day. Everywhere you can pay witg cash, i never even use my credit card, and coffee is the same price wherever you sit (bar, table outside) but are different from city to city. Usualy when you must "order" a bus, yes, they will look at it as a reserved spot and they are usualy the ones who travel very far, but we have a loot of buses everywhere so its not difficult to find a ride. For internet.. its wi fi everywhere so all you need to do is ask (in store, bar, etc.) for pasword or they are just simply open to use. I am from Slovenia. we have Italy, Austria, Hungary and Croatia as our neighbours and the things are preaty much the same but at the same time totaly different. Saying all the Europe is the same is like saying all the Usa is the same. Nope. Different countries, different people, different prices,... Sorry for my slopy english.
All the things mentioned about our INDIA is not true. Its just a bad publicity.
Has the author ever been to Europe? Nothing written is true. All shops are open on Sundays in the UK for starters.
the things written about India and south Asian countries is not only wrong but also very disrespectful and rude.
We absolutely use curtains in Sweden. Also stop writing Europe. It’s a big place. If you are going to write something wrong at least specify the country.
I'm from Indonesia (South East Asia), and I found that this article is pretty offensive. In Indonesia, we take off shoes before entering the house due to hygiene issues. but you don't need to take off your shoes when you're entering the shops/malls. well, I agree with most comments here. please do some research before you got your articles published. don't generalize every stereotypes you know.
"In Asia, nobody is in hurry" - did you just summarize the daily life of an entire freaking continent? I can tell you that everyone who has a job or classes starting in less than 20 minutes in more in a hurry than any seppo.
"In Europe, an internet connection may be very expensive." - huh?
"In Europe, not a single store is open on Sunday. You can’t even buy bread.'' - Again, American propaganda, as you all seem to believe that we're a big entity under socialist regime... I've lived in several European countries in Southeastern, Western and Northern Europe and most supermarkets are open on Sunday. You just have to, you know, get up and WALK there.
"In the streets of Southeast Asia, there are a lot of wires everywhere. Aside from looking bad in photos, they are often damaged, so people have trouble using the electricity." - from what I've seen in some travel videos, there are a lot of ugly wires in many places all over the world. Including USA
"Only the luckiest people manage to not get a stomach virus during their first week in India" - disrespectful comment
"The Berlin underground is divided into zones. The fine for going into a zone with the wrong ticket is €80." - The Zone division, not just for the underground, but also tramways and buses is common in European cities. I bet it's a thing in some Asian and African big cities too.
Most Danish apartments don’t have bathrooms, only showers. And the shower might not be in the bathroom, but is sometimes in the kitchen. - I live in Denmark, never seen that
Almost none of these are true.
Wow Bright Side! You managed to offend half the world in one article! I suggest you start travelling yourselves rather than rely on hersay, jokes and stupid references or stop writing articles about things you know nothing! Whether you are americans and proud of it or not that does not give you the right to spread lies and misinformation about other countries and continents.
Whats the name of the 4 year old who penned this article?
even the 4 year old won't be this disrespectful
I agree with the rest above. Maybe some of it is true but just a very small amount. I live in Sweden and nothing of it is true :/
I am from Serbia and those facts are wrong. Stores 24/7 can be found easily, paying in cash...coffee the same price etc. All the best.
You really need to gets your facts checked about India before posting them.
Hi. In Singapore, chewing gum is banned due to irresponsible disposal of it. I live in Singapore and everyone smokes cigarettes everywhere. They will only be fined if they smoked in places like malls and any other closed public areas. And also, in Asia, not all countries have electricity wires suspended. At least i know for sure Singapore doesn't. All these 'facts' are too general and SUPER OFFENSIVE, especially to asians. Oh and btw, Asians are VERY RUSHING. Why else do you think ppl dont want to q and wait patiently in lines in India and traffic rules are broken? You think we are all very chill n dont care about anything? You think we are dumb? Never been so offended in my life! Also, if you dont know what the Indians are saying with their head gestures, then learn the language! Lemme teach u some tamil. Aama is yes. Illey is no. Theryaley is im not sure or idk. Ta-da! Done! NOW STOP CRITICISING ASIANS!! I normally love brightside but pls stop posting 'facts' about other countries that are not even a quarter true!
P.S. Asia is a HUGE part of the world, in case ur too ignorant to know. NEVER OFFEND US.
P.P.S I'm 14 and smarter than y'all.
So wrong about labor hours in Greece. We actually work twice as much as citizens of the rest EU and we get pain less than half of them.
What a crapload of nonsense... Almost all "facts" about Germany are false, and what do you mean by "in Europe"?!?? We are a bunch of around 30 different countries and nations, all with completely different settings and traditions! Same goes for "Asia". WTF?!???
whatever is written sbout India is 100 percent true !! great list !! 👍👍
Missed the mark on Norway, Sweden and Denmark. Wtf you trying to say Danes dont have bathrooms?? Thats mental. And Norwegians on the bus? We might stand instead of sitting next to someone, personal space is a big thing, but in front of each other? That's just completely off. I work in public transport, and I'm Norwegian. This is all false.
