Got everything with plenty of time left... but very surprised that Australia and Switzerland send more than China. I would have thought China would be in the top 10.

Give it time, I'm sure they will be in a few years. Although I was expecting Australia to be higher up myself - they do seem to gravitate back to the motherland! :-)

Really surprised about India and Pakistan with all the expats and second generationers there that still have family. Most of the first and second generation Indians and Pakistanis that I know living in the USA get visiting relatives every couple of years.

but this in the UK. Most Indians and Pakistanis stay as a family, they don't have 50 states XD

So of the 14 countries that send the most tourists to the UK, 11 of them come from the European Economic Area - so let's make it more difficult/expensive for them by leaving it. Brexit - the gift that keeps on giving....

You should add The Republic of Ireland as a type-in for Ireland because Northern Ireland is already technically in the UK, and "Southern Ireland" of the Republic of Ireland is actually what you are referring to

You would really type out 'The Republic of Ireland' over 'Ireland'. Ireland is much shorter, and Northern Ireland doesn't count because it is not even a country.
