The Most Visited Cities in the World
Hong Kong racked up 26 million visits.
With an imposing skyline and close proximity to Chinese mainland, Hong Kong was the most visited city in the world for the second year in a row in 2015, according to recently released statistics.
Euromonitor International attributed the high number of arrivals in part to the large number of people in China who have disposable income for traveling. Hong Kong has the glamor and excitement of an international metropolis, making it a popular destination for many Chinese tourists.
Bangkok has long attracted tourists from around the world for its rich cuisine, access to Hindu shrines, and proximity to secluded beaches in neighboring towns. Visits to Bangkok went up by more than 1 million people in 2015.
Fourth and fifth in the rankings were Singapore and Paris, respectively.
