List of cities by international visitors

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a list of top 100 cities ranked by the number of international visitors, including all international arrivals by land, sea, or plane, for tourist or business purposes. Advisor Euromonitor and the corporation Mastercard define the concept of the foreign visitor differently thus their respective rankings differ.

Euromonitor counts a visitor only if a person spends at least 24 hours in the city. The growth column compares international arrivals to the previous year. For cities bordering directly on foreign territory, border crossings from country to country are not counted, such as Singapore and the neighboring Malaysia.[1]

Mastercard Global Destinations Cities Index counts a visitor only if a person stayed overnight at least once in the city. The income column shows the amount visitors spent in each city. For cities bordering directly on foreign territory, border crossings from country to country are not counted as international visitors.[2]
