Least visited countries in the world
The least visited countries in the world, these destinations are located in Pacific Islands, the Caribbean and the Indian Ocean are among the nations that less tourists received in 2017 to 2018
One of the great problems of many destinations of the world is the invasion of tourists: in 2018 there were more than 1.3 billion of arrivals of people who traveled the planet, according to statistics of the World Tourism Organization. We always talk about the most visited: France with 86.9 million; Spain with 81.8, United States with 76.9; China with 60.7 and Italy with 58.3 but we also have to check the other end of the table, that of the countries that less tourists receive. Here they go:
Tuvalu has four coral reefs and five atolls. Only 2,000 visitors arrived in 2017 to 2018, to this island that can resemble the typical postcard paradise.
However, it usually appears in the news for an unpleasant reason: studies say that it would be the first country to be under water by global warming and rising ocean levels.
2. Kiribati and Marshall Islands
Some 6,000 tourists visited this archipelago of 33 atolls of coral and turquoise-colored lagoons. As you can imagine: a true paradise for snorkeling, scuba diving and other water sports.
Some come here because, being next to the world line of change of date, it is the first inhabited place of the planet to receive the New year.
The Marshall islands also accounted for 6,000 visitors. His name refers to Captain John Marshall, who along with Thomas Gilbert explored these islands in 1788.
Located in the Caribbean, this island of the Lesser Antilles dependent on the United Kingdom and southeast of Puerto Rico, was once a fairly popular holiday destination, but failed to recover from natural disasters like the passage of Hurricane Hugo in 1989, and especially the Eruption of the Soufriere Hills Volcano, in 1995, which buried to a large extent its capital, Plymotuh.
Anyway, the volcano is one of the strong attractions for most of the 8,000 tourists who visit it, as well as beautiful beaches, of course.
This island country in the South Pacific Ocean-known as the Polynesian Rock-received 10,000 visitors in 2017. It maintains a status of free association with New Zealand.
It is considered one of the largest coralline islands in the world.
5. Solomon Islands
Located in Oceania, these islands make up an independent island country, conformed by two archipelagos that, in total, add up to 990 islands. Beach, diving and wildlife observation are part of the activities developed by tourists who arrive here, which in 2017 to 2018 totaled 26,000.
The images that are repeated are divers, beaches of clear sands, turquoise and transparent waters and the green of the vegetation that accompanies the stage.
Another group of islands, in this case in the Indian Ocean between the coasts of Mozambique and Madagascar, received in 2017 28,000 tourists. It is a paradise of breathtaking volcanic landscapes, forests, fauna in which lemurs and fruit bats stand out, and extremely calm villages.
7. Sao Tome and Principe
Peace and tranquility characterize Sao Tome and Principe, a series of islands almost off the coast of Gabon, Africa, in the Atlantic, where you can see humpback whales and dolphins and enjoy diving sites.
Selva, the Portuguese colonial architecture and pristine beaches: that came to look for the 29.0000 tourists who came to the place last year.
It’s the biggest microstation in the world.
