Most Visited Countries/Cities In The World

I thought this might be an interesting read as to which destinations are the most popular around the world.Here is a list by world tourism organization as to which Countries are The Most Visited By Overseas Tourist Arrivals.

http://geography.about.com/od/econom...stinations.htm

1. France - 79,500,000
2. United States - 62,300,000
3. China - 57,600,000
4. Spain - 56,700,000
5. Italy - 46,100,000
6. Turkey - 29,300,000
7. United Kingdom - 29,200,000
8. Germany - 28,400,000
9. Malaysia - 24,700,000
10. Mexico - 23,400,000**
11. Austria - 23,000,000
12. Russia - 22,700,000
13. Ukraine - 21,400,000

Interesting to see places like Switzerland, Australia Missing.Surprised to see Mexico and Ukraine that High.France has been leading the list for quite some time now.United Kingdom might have been higher if not for Pound Sterling.

Now for the Most Visited Cities By international Tourists.Here is a list by Forbes.

1 London (20.1m)
2 Paris (18.1m)
3 Bangkok (11.5m)
4 Singapore (11.4m)
5 Hong Kong (10.9m)
6 Madrid (10.1m)
7 Istanbul (9.4m)
8 Frankfurt (8.4m)
9 Dubai (7.9m)
10 Rome (7.9m)
11 Seoul (7.9m)
12 New York (7.6m)
13 Amsterdam (7.4m)
14 Kuala Lumpur (6.9m)
15 Milan (6.7m)
16 Barcelona (6.7m)
17 Vienna (6.2m)
18 Shanghai (5.5m)
19 Taipei (5.4m)
20 Tokyo (5.0m)

Well surprised to see Newyork City a little low.It should have been up with London and Paris.London maybe The best Tourist city in the world because it has a plethora of Attractions.

Re: Most Visited Countries/Cities In The World

So about 70% of people who visit my country go to London, seems about right.

Re: Most Visited Countries/Cities In The World

I'm surprised countries like Ukraine and Austria are visited this much,Thought nobody cared about most of eastern Europe "other than Turkey".Other than that I'm not surprised by any of these.

Ulfric Stormcloak; not a racist, not a megalomaniac, not a savage, but a hero with heart & ambition.

All hail to Ulfric you are the High King
In your great honor we drink and we sing
We're the children of Skyrim and we fight all our lives
And when Sovngarde beckons everyone of us dies

We drink to our youth to the days come and gone
For the age of oppression is now nearly done
