Tuvalu – the least-visited country in the world

Published on : Thursday, September 7, 2017

TuvaluThe island of Tuvalu in the South Pacific is the least-visited country in the world. It welcomes merely 2,000 tourists a year and is a paradise that Britons may not realize that it exists.

Escaping the usual tourist traps of Paris and Rome can be difficult for many families on holiday. Going off the beaten track can mean a much more relaxing holiday and a better option for escaping the bustle of tourism.

Many countries throughout the world now including Italy, Croatia and Greece are even protesting the number of visitors it welcomes with anti-tourism marches, making travellers seem less welcome.

Hence, those looking for a slice of quiet paradise should head to one island instead. And Tuvalu can be a splendid choice!

Attracting just 2,000 visitors a year, the UNWTO officially stated that it welcomed the least number of visitors in 2016. This is actually a 100 percent increase from the 1,000 tourists that visited the island in 2014.

However, similar islands close by like Samoa attracted 120,000 visitors in that same year. With a population of just 11,000 people, many may question how Tuvalu stays so hidden from many travellers.

However, with just three flights a week, no card machines and no tour guides or operators, many may struggle to spend a holiday there as it is labelled one of the least developed regions in the world.

The island has couple of guesthouses and hotels that British travellers will have to stay in. It is also one of the worst places to have been affected by climate change, with the U.N. listing it at risk of disappearing by the end of the century.

Still, with its virgin sandy beaches, blue seas and an average temperature of 30 degrees all year round, it should be on every Britons bucket list.
