The top three Tourist destination countries now are France, the US and China.the World Trade Organization confirmed Today. Interestingly WTO (aA United Nations Body) announced that it expects one Billion Individuals will Travel Overseas to a Forein country this year 2012.

 
WTO also deliberated that the number of travelers will rise to 1.4 billion in 2020 and 1.8 billion in 2030.
 
For the current year 2012 the One Billion Traveler Milestone will be reached this fall.This figure is 4% higher than that of last year 2011.
We should feel better knowing that in 1950 only 25 Million People traveled abroad!
