Besides countries that always attract tens of millions of tourists every year such as the US, France, Thailand, South Korea, etc., many countries have unspoiled landscapes but very few tourists come. Here are the countries with the fewest international tourists in the world that you may not know.
Tuvalu, also known as the Ellice Islands, is an island nation in the South Pacific Ocean, located between Hawaii and Australia. Tuvalu’s area consists of reefs and coral islands, and the jungle area is only about 26 km² (about 10 sq mi) (fourth-largest among the world’s smallest countries and territories, after the Vatican – 0.44 km²; Principality of Monaco – 1.95 km² and Nauru – 21 km²).
Based on historical documents, scientists have proven that the Polynesians were the first inhabitants to set foot on Tuvalu. By the end of the nineteenth century, Tuvalu was under colonial rule. For a long time (1892-1916), part of it was under the protection of the British government.
In 1916, part of the Gilbert and Ellice Islands became a British colony. In 1974, the islanders voted to divide the colony into two regions: the Gilbert Islands became an independent Kiribati nation; The Tuvalu Islands are dependent on Great Britain. In 1978, Tuvalu joined the member states of the British Commonwealth.
The fourth-smallest country in the world is an island in the Pacific Ocean known as Ellice Island. Tuvalu has everything to become a tourist paradise such as tropical climate with warm sunshine, long blue sea and white sand with rows of green coconut trees, residents here are also friendly and hospitable but do not understand why only 1000 tourists come here each year making this the least touristy country in the world. Maybe it’s because it’s too close to Hawaii, the world’s tourist paradise?
The Republic of Sierra Leone is a country located in West Africa. Sierra Leone is bordered by Guinea to the northeast, Liberia to the southeast, and the Atlantic Ocean to the southwest. Sierra Leone covers an area of 71,740 square kilometers (27,699 square miles) and has a tropical climate, with environments ranging from savanna to rainforest. Freetown is the capital and largest city. Other major cities with populations over 100,000 include Bo, Kenema, Koidu Town, and Makeni.
The early settlers of Sierra Leone included the Sherbro, Temne, and Limba peoples, and later the Mende, who called the land the Romarong, and the Kono people who settled in the eastern part of the country. In 1462, the Portuguese explorer Pedro da Cintra arrived here and named the country Serra de Leão, which means ‘Lion Mountain’.
Sierra Leone is a country located in West Africa, which is a poor country, people still have to live very difficultly. The Ebola epidemic has caused a significant drop in visitors to the country, making it one of the least visited countries. But now that the epidemic is over, along with attractive offers such as promotions, discount codes, top travel coupons, visitors can freely visit this place, enjoy the white sands, swamps, stilt houses, and romantic hills.
Kiribati, officially the Republic of Kiribati (Gilbert: Ribaberiki Kiribati), is an island country with a tropical climate located in the central Pacific Ocean. The country has a total of 32 atolls and one high atoll, spread over an area of about 3.5 million square kilometers, scattered around the equator, and bordered to the east by the International Date Line.
The name Kiribati is the local pronunciation of the word “Gilberts”, which comes from the country’s main island, the Gilbert Islands. Kiribati gained independence from Great Britain in 1979. The country is a member of the British Commonwealth, the International Monetary Fund, and the World Bank, and became a full member of the United Nations in 1999.
This island nation located in the Pacific Ocean was also known as the Gilberts during British colonial times. It has had a traumatic history due to the second world war. But the beautiful scenery and warm climate here are no joke.
Although only about 5000 visitors have set foot here and are one of the least touristy countries, the coral reefs here also make anyone who comes here extremely satisfied.
Montserrat is a British Overseas Territory, located in the Leeward Islands, part of the Lesser Antilles chain of islands in the Caribbean Sea. According to recent measurements, this land is about 11 km (equivalent to 7 miles), about 16 km long by road, and 40 km of coastline.
The name Montserrat today was given by the famous explorer Christopher Columbus during his second voyage to the New World in 1493, after the name of the Montserrat mountain range in Catalonia, Spain. Montserrat is also known as the “Pearl of the Caribbean”; It evokes the Irish coast and the Irish ancestry of some of the island’s inhabitants.
During the reign of King George of England, the capital of Plymouth was severely damaged, most of the islanders had to evacuate to other areas to avoid the “waking up” of the Soufriere Hills volcano (this mountain later erupted. in August 1995).
Today, while Soufriere Hills is still active, danger still lurks in Plymouth and surrounding areas (cargo harbor, WH Bramble airport). More than that, the danger grew, the blockaded land expanded, stretching from the south coast to the desolate valley of Belham. This area also includes St. George, which famously attracts tourists by its beautiful volcanic landscapes and its devastation to the capital, Plymouth.
Montserrat is in the Leeward Islands in the turquoise Caribbean Sea. In addition to long sandy beaches and azure waters, Montserrat also has a long history as this is the island that was discovered by explorer Christopher Columbus in 1493 and he was the one who gave the island its name. Although not attracting many tourists, the special thing about Montserrat that makes many people crazy is the view of the volcano still active, and the last eruption was in 1995.
Above is a list of the countries with the fewest international tourists in the world. It is hoped that these countries will soon adjust their tourism policies, open many promotions, discounts and coupons to attract tourists to save money while traveling, invest in infrastructure to promote their full tourism potential and attract more international tourists and bring great revenue to the national GDP.
