Madrid.- While France is set to remain the world’s most popular tourist destination, Spain is expected to replace the U.S. as travelers’ second choice.
Each year, the United Nations’ World Tourism Organization puts out an analysis of international tourism growth in destinations around the world, and preliminary figures for 2016 already reveal global tourism has increased as much as 7% percent worldwide, with France and Spain taking the lead.
Mediterranean destinations in Europe helped the continent record the most gains in tourism so far at an 8% increase for its international arrivals in 2016, matching directly with Africa, which also saw an 8% increase.
