The stats for HK/Macau/Zhuhai/Shenzhen/Guangzhou are all going to be massively inflated because many people cross these borders daily between the mainland and HK/Macau

But would that count as tourism?

For many nations, no. But it depends on your definition of "tourism," and where that money goes.

I'm from HK. And for your reference, there are countless people from mainland China coming to HK/Macau for a 1-day trip, and some of them happen to do it once a week for shopping. It's sometimes vice versa, and it is still to some extent tourism

part of why it would be much more interesting if they just counted every overnight stay regardless of whether or not the visitor crossed an international boundary (or in the case of Hong Kong and Macao, crossed an internal division within the country). Doing otherwise introduces and arbitrary variable and makes the results highly inconsistent.

and all of these cities in the EU/Schengen Area are now just as easy to travel between as any two cities within any other country. Actually easier. There is a border checkpoint between Hong Kong and the rest of China, unlike traveling between Vienna, Prague, Munich, and Budapest.

Should be worth 3 points, although maybe there's a rounding issue:

Muğla?! It's not a very interesting place, near many more attractive coastal tourist cities. I have trouble believing it made this list.
+1

Mar 11, 2017
It has coastal subcities as Marmaris, Bodrum, Fethiye etc.. They all in Muğla. But you're right the city center of Muğla isn't interesting. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/4/4f/Mu%C4%9Fla_districts.png/350px-Mu%C4%9Fla_districts.png "Muğla Merkezi" is the city centre of Muğla.

Would be much more interesting and relevant to see a quiz on cities by total number of tourists (international and domestic), but I know that data is hard to come by. I've looked. Most of these European cities would not make it on to such a quiz. Little silly to count someone from Malmo visiting Copenhagen more than someone from Boston flying to Honolulu. Even if the bridge toll for the former trip might cost more than the airfare for the latter.

Only overnight visitors count.

So what? Even if you were driving from Malmo to Copenhagen you could still stay overnight if you wanted to and this would count while a family from Anchorage taking a trip to Miami or one from Beijing going to Guangzhou does not count.

Nope, the English spelling is Brussels, the Dutch one is Brussel and the French one is Bruxelles. The French version has two Ls but then you would need to write it fully in French.

Walla Walla, Washington's "world famous" Marcus Whitman Hotel is advertising on this quiz of most visited world cities. Looks nice in the carefully taken pictures. I see neither Walla Walla nor anywhere in South America like Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Lima or Montevideo on the quiz map being clogged by you hordes. Where should I choose? I know where Bugs Bunny would go.

Penang is an island, and a province, but not a city. Penang's main city is George Town. I have my doubts abut Ha Long as well, because "Ha Long" will refer to visitors to the amazing islands of Vietnam's Halong Bay. As happened to us and a gazillion other tourists this month when we visited, the trip to the bay, and those islands, bypasses Ha Long city completely.

Same could be said for Bali and Phuket. Though there is a "Phuket Town" on Phuket, it's not where the tourists go.

well technically the bay and the islands themselves are parts of the Halong city, so you still visited the city haha
