Most tourists ? Malaysia

Malaysia's tourism numbers are extremely skewed from back and forth trips from Singapore. The southern tip of Malaysia is directly connected to Singapore and that portion of Malaysia basically serves as suburbs/weekend trips/reverse commutes/cheap shopping for Singaporeans. They're doing this by number of entries which is why you have some crazy numbers for Singapore where Singapore contributes 13+ million visitors (more than half the total visit numbers that Malaysia's tourism board puts out) despite the country of Singapore having about 5 million people. I feel Thailand is much more of a tourism destination as people are actually coming all over in large numbers to Thailand for visits while Malaysia's larger visitor numbers are more an interesting technical quirk.

Vietnam is improving now. It reached a nadir after the war, but has improved since economic liberalisation in the 90s like China. The Vietnamese are culturally more like the Chinese than other SE Asians and are very businesslike.

This is true. Thailand has a more balanced range of countries, and they come from all over the world.

None really is as influential as South Korea and Japan.
But if you are talking about cuisines, must be the Thai cuisine.
Followed by the Vietnamese cuisine.
There are more overseas Filipinos and Indonesians than overseas Thai, but Thai cuisine is still much more popular outside of Southeast Asia.

Thailand is able to attract more intercontinental tourists than other southeast Asian countries, Singapore and Malaysia followed. Because of the many intercontinental flights to and from Bangkok, Singapore and kl. These are popular stopovers between Europe and Australia & NZ.

Singapore leads in modernisation in Southeast Asia.
