This is a list of 100 cities in the world ranked by the number of international visitors, including all international arrivals by land, sea, or plane, for tourist or business purposes. Since the two sources of advisor Euromonitor and the corporation Mastercard define the concept of the foreign visitor differently, their respective rankings differ. In addition, the lists can be based on different source data.
