Map of The Most Popular Countries in the World

It might come as a surprise to some that France is the world’s biggest tourist destination in the world! Receiving nearly 20 Million more visitors annually than the runner up, USA. Doubly impressive when you consider that the US is over fifteen times the size of France.

Here’s a map of the world detailing how many visitors each of these 165 countries gets each year.

France’s high-density of tourist attractions, museums, monuments, historical sites and rich culture make it the world’s most popular tourist destination.

The five least visited countries (that we have data for) are; The Solomon Islands (23,000), Moldova (11,000), Kiribati (5,300), Marshall Islands (5,000), Tuvalu (1,200).
