If you’ve ever wondered which country was the most popular tourist destination, wonder no longer — this map shows which countries get the most visitors every year. Australia doesn’t even crack the top 40.
It might surprise you to find out that France is the most popular destination, welcoming in 81.4 million visitors every years. That’s nearly 20 million more visitors annually than the US, which comes second. Fairly crazy, given France is 15 times smaller — but then it is full of wine, cheese and culture. Pretty irresistible as combinations go.
It’s a shame the colour scale on the visualisation — put together by Move Hub — is absolutely awful — but fortunately there’s also a list of the top 20 below. Any other surprises catch your eye?
