To be honest, it's not that they're "super nice" or anything, it's that Western countries have become so damn spoiled we've lost a piece of ourselves we once had. They've simply remained the same.
This is actually pretty accurate in my opinion. I have friends/family in Sri Lanka. Every time I've been there I've noticed that the people generally seem much nicer than westerners, even though their quality of life is much lower. I've met beggars on the street and people who have lost their homes and family to the tsunami and yet they seem to be happier and more cheerful than your average British person. They somehow manage to stay positive, even in the worst of times.
My Sri Lankan friends have said that they welcome any problems and difficulties into their lives instead of fighting it, and just accept whatever happens instead of letting it get them down. Easier said than done, but still a very respectable attitude towards life.
