Published on : Friday, October 4, 2019

Many travelers like to plan their vacations based on which cities and countries are moving up concerning annual international visitors.

 

In this regard, the UNWTO has made things a lot easier for travelers who like to visit the trendy vacation spots.

 

The UNWTO published their International Tourism Highlights report for 2019. It shows which nations saw a jump in tourism, as well as the ones that saw a decline.

 

Ecuador witnessed the best increase of 51 percent with 2.42 million visitors, compared to 1.6 million visitors from a year ago. The historic Galapagos Islands were instrumental in attracting visitors. The beautiful location attracted around  276,000 tourists in 2018.

 

Other countries witnessing major upswing include Iran (49.9 percent), Egypt (36.6 percent) and Uganda (31.9 percent). Surprisingly, the UK went down by 3.5 percent. This is in spite of the Greater London area bringing in 19.09 million for the year 2018. Only Bangkok, Thailand saw more international visitors at 22.43 million.
