Russia is listed as number 2 but I will bet it is based upon people visiting Western Russia. I have never been to Western Russia but I have been to Siberia in Eastern Russia. Everyone was very friendly and appreciated the fact we visited them. The only problem we had was with immigration. We had all been pre approved for entry, yet it took hours to clear immigration. Four taxis had been scheduled for us and they had to wait. Eventually the taxis left and came back several hours later.

I think it's just all down to personal experience really.

Exactly. In parts of South America if someone asks you for directions, it is considered rude not to give them an answer. To say "I don't know" is very rude. Provide them with your best guess.
