The most frequently visited countries in the world

posted in: Travel 0

More than 1 billion and a half international tourists travel to all continents of the world every year.

Traditionally, the top three most popular countries are France, Spain, and the United States of America.

Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus are ranked 16th, 30th, and 86th respectively – out of 216 countries that provide tourism statistics to international organizations.

The most dynamic growth in tourism is in Thailand, which is ahead of the UK at 9th. The increase in visits is also driven by the massive expansion of Asian low-cost airlines, which have significantly reduced airfares to this popular destination, which until recently was less affordable.

Darina's work can be found in several international publications. Hello! I'm Darina Logvinova. My life is full of interesting events. And I want to share this with you. My passion is to travel. Perhaps there is nothing more surprising and impressive than discovering new countries, new cultures, cities, uniquely beautiful places. Travel is life. This is what always gives strength, energy, and desire to go forward. It's so hard to wake up early for work, but it's so easy - to the airport or to the train =) I am also a fan of psychology. I believe that it is impossible to have a harmonious relationship with yourself and with the people around you, without understanding anything about our inner world. Many world-famous authors set out their thoughts in books, they are very smart and talented people who share their knowledge and experience. There is nothing easier than buying a book and learning something new from the geniuses of psychology. Our feelings and emotions are very multifaceted. We all perceive the world in different ways and we need to be able to respect and understand this. Everything that we wish will certainly come true, you need to be able to dream about it correctly. The universe does not limit anyone. It is full of supplies for each of us. Psychology is a very important science for humanity. The more the world develops, the more people understand this. The more we are tolerant to ourselves and to all people, the more good there will be in our lives and in the whole world. Development is the driving force behind humanity. We simply cannot afford to stand still, otherwise, our life loses all meaning. Every day, discovering something new for ourselves, we move forward towards our goals.
