The 16 Least Visited Countries in the World…Where’s Your Next Trip?

by Adam

Thanks to reader Dino for sharing The Russian Abroad by Olga, a travel companion she met on an Eastern European trip earlier this year. Olga has compiled a list of the 16 Least Visited Countries in the World, though there is no source as to where she obtained her stats. While it’s not entirely scientific (and I see several countries missing that probably belong on the list), it does contain multiple spots I hope to get to soon including Mongolia, the Faroe Islands, Bhutan, and Madagascar. I think St. Vincent might also have to be added to my Caribbean island list. Check out Olga’s post for pictures and full details for each location.

  1. Palau
  2. Mongolia
  3. The Faroe Islands
  4. Macedonia
  5. Liechtenstein
  6. Moldova
  7. Greenland
  8. Madagascar
  9. Monaco
  10. St. Vincent and the Grenadines
  11. Bhutan
  12. Belarus
  13. Kiribati
  14. The Solomon Islands
  15. Tajikistan
  16. The Marshall Islands

The Faeroe Islands

Thanks to Olga and Dino for sharing!

While a fun list, it’s definitely not accurate. Monaco (on the list) receives about 300,000 visitors a year. Tuvalu (not on the list) receives about 2,000.

The World Bank is the primary organization tracking these numbers:

Slightly unrelated question, but where is that picture from (with the waterfall)?? Thanks

@Brian – The Faroe Islands!

Palau is even limiting the number of tourists, i think this list is not even close to the reality.
