It’s probably not too shocking to learn that China is the
best-traveled nation in the world. Its citizens spend over a
quarter of a trillion dollars on tourism around the world, which is
more than the
US
and Germany
— second and third place, respectively — combined.

Sharing the continent with Canada
and Mexico,
it’s no surprise that US citizens count those two countries among
their most frequent travel destinations. An estimated 35.1 million
people cross the border into Mexico each year, and 14.3 million
visit Canada. Canada racks up equally impressive numbers as it’s
the sixth top traveling nation. Canadians log an average of 632 air
miles per person each year, with the UK,
Cuba,
and Germany as their favorite international destinations.

The ratio between tourists and a country’s population might be
a good predictor of how frustrated the locals get by overwhelming
swarms of tourists. But that’s a study for another time. As far
as these ratios are concerned, the small European principality of
Andorra tops the list. With a total population of 80,000, Andorra
sees about three million tourists each year for a ratio of one
local for 39 tourists. Macau, of
the south coast of China, experiences a similar trend with a ratio
of 1 local for 27 visitors.
