I tried Valletta for Malta, I think the city should count as no other destination is given as the country.

Yes! Sorry, the data has it called Malta, I forgot to change it for the quiz.

This is tricky as half of the island is one big conurbation without a single centre, there are many places that are closer to the airport and/or bigger than Valletta. Birkirkara is three times larger, Luqa is closest.

On further note, it's simply wrong, nobody calls it Valletta airport. Also, while no other destination (besides Singapore) is listed as country, there are a few shown as islands - Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, Tenerife.

It's sad that Orlando is on the list. Perhaps the most overrated vacation destination in the world (or is that Las Vegas?)

Orlando is great. A singular unique place unlike anywhere else you can possibly go to. What are you talking about? Las Vegas would definitely get my vote as most overrated tourist destination in the USA. Probably not in the world, but I'm not sure where that would be. Though it's also a fairly unique place, just not in a good way IMO.

crap.. forgot the airport was in Larnaca. I knew that. I tried Nicosia, the capital. I tried Limassol, where the seaport is. I even tried Cyprus, hoping you'd be generous and accept it the same way you accepted Malta- but I couldn't remember Larnaca.

Wow. 1.29 million to/from Reykjavik. When the whole of Iceland only has 350,000. Lots of tourists and transit I guess.
