France: World's Most-visited Country

The World Bank compiled data for nearly every country in the world, primarily counting a "tourist" as anyone traveling to a country other than the country of their primary residence and whose main purpose in visiting was not work-related.

Given the lack of standardized counting methods at every country in the survey, there are slight discrepancies from country to country.

Outside of France, which took the number 1 spot with nearly 81.5 million visitors in 2011, the United States came in second with 62.7 million visitors, the Huffington Post reported.

In third, China, with approximately 57.6 million tourists.

Top 10 most-visited countries in the world are:

1. France

2. USA

3. China

4. Spain

5. Italy

6. Turkey

7. UK

8. Germany

9. Russia

10. Malaysia
