Every year, the United Nations World Tourism Organization compiles and publishes the list of the most visited countries in the world.

To be honest, none of the entries will come as a surprise, although the order according to number of visitors is interesting.

Here are the most visited countries in the world.

1. France

France

France has headed the list for the past 3 years.

France is a country of elegance, fine wines, and historical diversity.2

What makes it one of the most visited countries in the world is a combination of what it has to offer and its geographical position as the crossroads which leads to Germany and the Low Countries, as well as to the Mediterranean nations and the Iberian Peninsula.

Enjoy high-brand Parisian fashion, sample the delectable wines of the vineyards, and embrace a sunshine paradise on the French Riviera.

Wander lavender fields in Provence, blow the cobwebs from the brain on Brittany’s beaches and cruise rivers through glorious countryside.

2. USA

USA

As well as being the center of the Western world, the USA offers something for everyone.

From the high-rise skyscrapers and Broadway shows of New York City to the warm nights of the celebrity-centric Los Angeles, crossing from East to West is like arriving in another country.

Millions have enjoyed the wonders of a road trip across the USA.

To put it simply, it’s one of the most popular countries for tourists as it just has so much to see and do.

Whether you want the thrills and spills of a Florida theme park, a gorgeous beach on the Gulf of Mexico, the history of the nation in Boston or the vast wonderment of the Grand Canyon, the list of attractions in the USA is seemingly endless.

3. China

China

China is one of the top countries to visit because it has opened its doors and embraced tourism over the last few decades.

The country leads the world in investment in tourism and it’s obviously paying off – China has jumped a place to be 3rd in the list of the world’s most visited countries.

Despite its authoritarian government, China is a country wrapped in a history dating back to the 1st Century.

There’s truly nothing like walking along the Great Wall or traversing the futuristic streets of Shanghai, which is slowly sinking into the water due to its immense weight.

And with its amazing natural attractions and fascinating culture and festivals, China is a traveler’s dream.
