Top 15 Countries to Visit US

Seems tourism to the States is down for visitors from the UK, Japan, and Germany, at least over the past ten years. As you might expect the People's Republic of China leads the pack with a whopping 221% increase from 2000 to 2010. India is not far behind with 137%.

The rest of the list includes Canada, Mexico, France, Brazil, South Korea, Australia, Italy, Spain, The Netherlands, and Columbia.

  1. This list of tourists that came in are mostly travelers seeking medical treatment. However, some of them are getting health care packages that includes a tour to one of the country's scenic destinations.
