International tourism, expenditures (current US$) in 2010 - Link

International tourism expenditures are expenditures of international outbound visitors in other countries, including payments to foreign carriers for international transport. These expenditures may include those by residents traveling abroad as same-day visitors, except in cases where these are important enough to justify separate classification. For some countries they do not include expenditures for passenger transport items. Data are in current U.S. dollars.

United States: $109,975,000,000 - Population, total: 309,349,000 - $356 per capita

I thought this article might be interesting.

http://www.med.govt.nz/about-us/pdf-...25KB%20PDF.pdf

NZers have 46 trips per 100 people overseas trips annually. Higher than Australia, Japan and the US, but lower than A lot of European countries and Canada.

The British seem to be the ones who go abroad the most.

And the Brits seem to be EVERYWHERE. Aussies are a bit thin on a the ground in places like Turkey or Peru, but I feel the British are pretty well represented everywhere on earth.

When I was naming small countries, like Liechtenstein and Andorra, I should have thought of Luxembourg.

Although I wonder if small nations, small enough a car or train can get you from the geographic center of the country to another nation in say an hour or two, ought to be treated a bit different.

Naturally citizens of small countries like Belgium, Denmark, Switzerland...

Drive 2 hours from the capital, and you are abroad

I dont think Canadians "travelling" to America and vice versa counts, same goes for Europeans travelling in Europe.

I think Australians would be the most well travelled because we're so isolated from the rest of the world we genuinely are interested in seeing the world we're so seperated from.

3-5 (not in order):
Swedish, Swiss, Norwegians

6-14 (not in order):
New Zealanders, Singaporeans, Israelis, Canadians, Koreans Belgians, Finnish, Hong Kongers and Taiwanese.

and the English, Germans, Japanese, French, Italians and Americans should be there but don't know where to rank them because they all have big populations compared to the other countries on the list.
Japanese people are very not well-traveled, at least not internationally. They prefer staying at home.

Outbound Departures(2015):
Japan - 16,213,763 (population: 120 million)
Korea - 19,310,430 (population: 50 million)
Taiwan - 13,182,976 (population: 23 million)
Singapore - 9,125,931 (population: 5 million)

I also found this:


So the winner is Singapore, at least in the Asia-Pacific region. I guess most Japanese people are just not interested in going abroad, despite the ability of doing so.


Frankly I think it's very hard to measure the statistics in Europe. You can literally just bike to a foreign country within a few minutes.
