If you'd been to Russia you might believe the figures. Even in April in the freezing cold we kept bumping into people with cameras in Red Square, even though it wasn't a good day for taking photos. Anyway, Russia is huge with lots of borders so presumably there are loads of people who can simply cross the border into Russia for a cheap and easy holiday. Though I agree, the visas are far too complicated...

Donetsk tourist numbers don't affect the total much, but the loss of Crimea does (even if they tried to count the visitors there and add them to Ukrainian total - the numbers have dwindled from what I hear). And the average tourist avoids a country with a war going on, few bother to check the details. Slovenia had just a very brief war, but for many years it was avoided due to "war in Yugoslavia".

No Israel? I tried it but can't see it...Israel with all the Christians and Jewish people visiting as well as Muslims--less than Ukraine in war or Croatia? UAE? ASre there that many rich rich people? Ir is it the young girls kidnapped into prostitution? People reporting the girls being kidnapped from Iraq and Syria are vague about where the brothels are that they keep the young women and girls in...Wonder if UAE is the answer... Men go to religious leaders in towns in Iraq and in refugee camps in and out of Syria and try to bribe them to identify young girls (8 and up) who have lost their male relatives in war. Sometimes, in Iraq, they offer marriage but place the girls in brothels instead. In Syrian refugee camps, they are breaking in at night and kidnapping young women. They are kept in strip clubs and brothels. If families find them, they may be kidnapped right back. Nuns are operating safe houses for girls who have gotten free...hiding and protecting them ...

As has been explained elsewhere, European countries dominate because they're all close together and it is the continent which on average has the most disposable income for travel. If you're in the UK, it's easy to visit France or Spain. From Italy it's a few hours to the Dalmatian Coast in Croatia. By contrast, Australia is a long, long way from any developed countries with large populations. Only NZ and its 4 million people are in easy travelling distance from us, and you still need to catch a three hour flight - unlike in Europe where you can jump in the car or on a train and be in another country in no time. Given all this it doesn't at all surprise me that Australia doesn't make the list. Brazil is a bit more of a surprise, but the countries closest to it have much less disposable income than European countries.

Why is everyone so surprised about Australia? I mean it's remote and far away from the standpoint of most people. If I wanted to get to Australia for example it would take me almost a day to get there including stops cause no plane travels that far without running out of fuel. Expenses probably play a role too. I can see that some countries don't seem like the obvious choice but they are close to other big tourist spots or it's cheap to get there even though they might not be around the corner.

Dear Carry, Actually, I can see that you did zero research before posting this comment. I can assure you, Australia is a lush beautiful country. Why would people want to go Australia? Hmm... Let me think... -Uluru, the biggest monolith in the world -Sydney Harbour bridge, a beautiful, huge bridge over Sydney harbour -Bondi Beach, one of the best beaches in the world -Sydney Opera House, an amazing structure again on Sydney harbour -Royal Botanical Gardens, public gardens overflowing with greenery Not to mention the zoos, parks, mountains etc. And we have a huge variety of animals, like koalas, kangaroos, birds, emus, platypi. Also, all this was off the top of my head, so who knows what else. Please educate yourself before assuming that people won't want to go to Australia. Expenses certainly don't stop most people. This is an outdated quiz, by the way. As of 2016, there were 18.9 mil arrivals across Australia's border. Remoteness often beckons people, anyway. Have a good day :)

I think if you require someone to speak your language before you'll be nice to them, you're not very nice. I've traveled to about 40 countries, speaking at least 30 languages between them - am I really supposed to learn all 30 languages before I travel to those countries? That's obviously not a reasonable expectation. On a quick SE Asian jaunt an Australian might pass from Malay-speaking countries, to Thai, to Khmer, to Lao, to Vietnamese, to Tagalog. And yet in all those countries I've found people very pleasant, regardless of my inability to speak their languages. It's not out of lack of respect that I don't learn their languages - it's that I'm not nearly intelligent enough to become that level of polyglot.

While I am very sad for the Ukraine (I doubt they'll be on this list after later data comes in), I'm so happy for Croatia's recovery. (Game of Thrones has certainly helped!) When I spent a summer there, they were just out of their own war of independence, but NATO was still fighting Serbia. Apparently it had always been a booming tourist destination in the past, but the coast was pretty ghost town-y in 1999. The only tourists who still went were Germans! Aside from one group who had family there (and spoke Croatian), I was the only American I came across. It's a beautiful country, full of warm, gregarious people.

For all those wondering why UAE. That's because UAE has Dubai, one of the biggest tourism city in the world. And it has been so for over 2 decades, when Dubai diversified and became the tourism, business, entertainment & sports capital of west and mid Asia. Google Dubai Tourism, and you will then know what Dubai is.
