Hong Kong Becomes the Most Visited City in 2018, Followed by Bangkok and London

Hong Kong took the first place in the ranking of the most popular cities among travellers in the world in 2018. From the beginning of the year, 29.8 million people visited it, as per the data of the report of the analytical company Euromonitor International published on Tuesday.

Bangkok (23.7 million) and London (20.7 million) are also among the three most attractive tourist destinations. In addition, Singapore, the Asian “capital of gambling” Macau, Paris, Dubai, New York, Kuala Lumpur and the southern Chinese metropolis Shenzhen are among the top ten most visited cities..

Moscow is located on the 48th line of the rating – in the current year, 5.4 million travellers visited the Russian capital. St. Petersburg is on the 59th position with about 4 million tourists.

While Asian cities are the clear winners, cities in the Middle East and Africa regions, such as Jerba, Sousse and Sharm el-Sheikh have dropped out of the ranking in the past few years, mainly due to terrorist attacks and subsequent slumping demand. In contrast, strong growth was registered by Turkish cities, as the country rebounded from a turbulent 2016.
