Top 10 Most Visited Countries In The World 2020

Worldwide tourism hit another high in 2018 and 2019. Globally, more than 1.4 billion trips were recorded in 2018. In particular, airplanes have made travel easier and more popular than ever. You can just get on a plane and then go anywhere on Earth you want, usually in just one day. That being said, there are some countries that are significantly more popular to visit than others. The reasons for this can be the weather, culture or the scenic beauty that a particular country offers to visitors. The following Top 10 ranking shows you the 10 most visited countries on Earth.

Quite a remarkable number, isn't it? Each of these countries welcomed at least more than 35 million foreign visitors to their county last year, while the most visited country on Earth even neared the 100 million mark. Most of the time there are specific cities and tourist attractions within the cities that generate the biggest wave of tourism for a country.
