Ten Most Visited Countries in Asia

The world is coming to Asia, or so it seems. The
increase in tourist traffic to Asia is apparent
by the fact that two of the worlds ten most
visited countries are Asian. Another stunning
fact is that the worlds most visited city is
also Asian Bangkok. Heres a list of preferred
Asian countries that the international traveler
is making a beeline for.
10. Japan  approximately 6,200,000 tourists a
year. Surprisingly, Japan is number 10 on the
countdown. This, despite the fact that Tokyo is a
world-class city, and Japan as a whole is
jam-packed with historical and cultural jewels
that would take a Japan travel guide days to go
through. Tokyo airport being one of the busiest
in world can be explained away by the sheer
number of travelers using it as a transit point
while flying across the world. The only other
explanation seems to be the fact that it is an
island, thus remote, and approachable by air only.

9. India  approximately 6,300,000 tourists a
year. India the East. A staggering number of
travelers fly into Indias various metros, only
to scatter around the countrys countless
historical, cultural and religious destinations.
The big draws are the capital city of Delhi with
a side visit to Agra for the Taj Mahal, the
beaches of Goa and the backwaters of Kerala,
Jaipur for it colorful and rich heritage. India
tour guides also point a large number of tourists
to pilgrimage cities like Varanasi and Amritsar.

8. Indonesia  approximately 7,700,000 tourists a
year. The beautiful and immensely popular island
of Bali can be held responsible for a majority of
this figure landing on the countrys shores.
People from the world over come here for the long
stretches of decadent beaches, beautiful Hindu
temples and resorts famous for luxurious
hospitality. Not in any way undermining the
beauty and cultural importance of the rest of the
archipelago, Jakarta, the capital city is also a
tourist magnet. A dedicated Indonesia travel
guide will probably take you to a number of other
breathtaking islands famous for water sports,
underwater activities, doses of ancient culture
and nature tours.
5
7. South Korea  approximately 9,800,000 tourists
a year. A whopping 10 million a year is quite a
feat for a country thats known mostly by its
capital city, Seoul. Seoul is responsible for the
lions share of this figure, but theres more to
South Korea that this sparkling metropolis. A
good number of travelers head to Busan and Jeju
Island after theyre done with Seoul.
6
6. Singapore  approximately 10,400,000 tourists
a year. Singapore has worked hard at increasing
its appeal as a tourist destination, adding two
mega casinos and theme parks amongst other unique
and novel attractions. Its proximity to the more
visited Malaysia and picturesque Indonesia has
definitely helped.
7
5. Macau  approximately 13,000,000 a year. The
Vegas of the East, Macau is home to flashy
casinos, which have made it the worlds leading
gambling centre. It does help that Macau allows
visa free entry to citizens of over 60 countries!

8
4. Thailand  approximately 19,300,000 tourists a
year. Thailands capital city of Bangkok commands
16 million of the 19 million tourists that visit
the country, making it the most visited city in
the world. Thailands secret lies in its
pristine beaches, pocket friendly tabs and warm
hospitality..
9
3. Hong Kong  approximately 22,400,000 tourists
a year. Hong Kong is near the top of the list
because of a technicality day trippers from
Mainland China hop across to shop at its glitzy
malls, taking advantage of Hong Kongs status as
a free port. Exclude these hordes and you still
have 9 million genuine tourists knocking on Hong
Kongs doors thats quite a feat for a tiny
city-state.

10
2. Malaysia  approximately 24,800,000 tourists a
year. Sipadan, Tioman, Langkawi Malaysia offers
some of the best beach destinations possible. Add
to this mix world class shopping in the capital
city of Kuala Lumpur and youve got yourself
nearly 25 million visitors a year!
11
1. China  approximately 57,600,000 tourists a
year. Top of the list with more than double the
footfall of number 2. China has only just started
opening up to international visitors. And the
world is flocking to its shores in hordes
Shanghai, Beijing, the Great Wall, the Terracotta
Army all only the tip of the iceberg. Chinas
age old history of ancient culture and traditions
is a magnet for foreigners looking for an exotic
experience of the mystical east.
