With so many countries in the world to travel to and explore we can be spoilt for choice. But which countries have been the least popular amongst travellers?
The world is a vast place with 196 countries that cover our wonderful planet. As inquisitive humans we have left little surface area that is unchartered: from the peak of Mount Everest that borders Tibet and Nepal to the depths of the Mariana Trench based just south of Guam.
It could be said that we have to be smart with our relatively short time on Earth. There are very few of us that are able to visit every country in the world or even a quarter of all countries for that matter. We have to make a conscious decision and choose what we are able to see and experience.
Maybe it’s the unique culture, the beautiful landscapes or the food that draws us to certain places than others. Whatever it is we seek, our planet has given us so many diverse options to explore.
So what are the least visited countries in the world? Below is the chart ranking the Top 15 least visited countries in the world (in 2016) according to The United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO).
