BahrainBahrain is among the top 10 most popular nations in the world in terms of tourism per capita, said a new survey.

 
With a total of 2,900 visitors annually per 1,000 citizens, the kingdom positioned ninth worldwide and was the only GCC or Arab country to be showcased in the study carried on by travel website TravelMag.com.
