The 25th most visited city on Earth
In 2011 4.3 million tourists visited Budapest, that is 8.3 % more than the previous year. In 2010 Budapest finished in the 43rd place. The data for the list are collected in 2011, but they released the toplist just now, in 2013. Here come the top 25 city of 2011:
4 Kuala Lumpur
9 New York
19 Las Vegas
23 Los Angeles
Sure, Budapest can't pick up the fight with such popular places like Miami, Las Vegas or Dubai, but this result proves that Budapest has its own value, and because of the fantastic architecture, the historic spas, the attractions on the banks of the Danube, the rich gastronomy and famous hospitality this lovely capital has its place on everyone's must-visit checklist.
Euromonitor international expects the list of 2012 to be more exciting.
