If you want to visit a country where the people are happy and willing to spread their joy you might want to consider the newly released UN report which divides countries into happiest and unhappiest locations.

Here are the top five happiest countries in the world according to the UN report.

  1. Denmark
  2. Finland
  3. Norway

  5. Canada

On the other site are the world’s unhappiest locations, all of which not surprisingly are poor third-world countries where violence, a lack of education and generally poor living conditions exist such as Togo and Burundi.
