Bonus List

LARGER COUNTRIES WITH THE MOST TOURISTS PER CAPITA

See last week's list for all countries and dependencies with the most tourists per capita.

This week's list only lists countries with at least 10 million people. Still, among these countries, there are five that have had more tourists in 2002 than residents. Nearly all of them are in heavily touristed Europe.

The figures below for a country are tourists based on the multiple of the country's population. Thus, if a country had 10 million residents and 20 million tourists (visitors), the value assigned would be 2.
