Euromonitor International unveiled the Top 100 City Destinations Ranking 2017 Edition1 at World Travel Market (WTM) London, the leading travel and tourism event worldwide.

According to the report, Asian cities dominate the global destination rankings thanks to the unstoppable rise of Chinese outbound tourism demand.

Hong Kong is the most visited city in the world, followed by Bangkok, which overtook London in 2015.

The top ten most visited cities are:

  1. Hong Kong: 26.6 million visitors
  2. Bangkok: 21.2 million visitors
  3. London: 19.2 million visitors
  4. Singapore: 16.6 million visitors
  5. Macau: 15.4 million visitors
  6. Dubai: 14.9 million visitors
  7. Paris: 14.4 million visitors
  8. New York: 12.7 million visitors
  9. Shenzhen: 12.6 million visitors
  10. Kuala Lumpur: 12.3 million visitors

The performance of European cities has been hampered by the Eurozone and migrants’ crisis, as well as Brexit and terrorist attacks. Despite the uncertainty, some European destinations, in particular Greece, Italy and Spain, have profited from unrest in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).

Performance in the MENA region has fluctuated greatly in recent years, however, Euromonitor forecast data shows a recovery for the region in 2017 and beyond.

While MENA’s main challenges remain wars and border disputes, Sub-Saharan Africa is looking to do the reverse: opening borders and enhancing collaboration with the African Union for a plan towards seamless borders.
