I really don't know why nauru wasn't on there, i just wrote down the countries/territories listed in the source

Looks like the dataset used doesn't have anything for Nauru. But yes, it has fewer visitors than anything on this list.

Fun quiz, although that website does note "We’re not counting war-torn countries like Libya, Syria, Somalia, Afghanistan etc. where tourism is virtually impossible". You could add a note about that.

Yeah, Somalia was the first country I typed. Couldn't believe it when it wasn't accepted. The US State Department's travel advisory for Somalia is basically "bring a body bag."

I think there are many Chinese that visit North Korea, but now due to Coronavirus there are almost no tourists. Really strange

No data for North Korea. Don't know why, but I could make a few guesses..

Since the source gives no information on what year it was published, and does link their source for the data, I would consider taking it directly from worldbank. That said, the fact that they don't have consistent years, (with several of the top 50 countries being more than 20 years out of date!) plus the fact that covid absolutely tanked 2020's numbers, plus the fact that 8 countries have no data at all, makes me question whether even that would be a satisfactory solution.

Tourism is extremely volatile at the best of times. A quiz like this is more of less guaranteed to be out-of-date within a year. Ideally, you could find something which could aggregate data from the past, say, 10 or 20 years into one number to account for that, but far too many countries (especially those with very low tourism) seem to have little or no data on the subject in the first place. I applaud the effort, but have to agree that some of the omissions here make me question the result.

To be slightly more specific, the dataset does not include any entry at all for Afghanistan, Equatorial Guinea, Kosovo, Liberia, Nauru, North Korea, Somalia, or South Sudan.

It actually does include data for Syria, which had far more tourists in 2019 than anything on this list, and Libya, whose most recent entry is from 2008 - the last year it was considered safe to travel (*if* you count that number, it also has enough visitors to escape this list).

It would be reasonable to assume that the 8 N/D countries and Libya are all in the 50 lowest by 2019/2020 data, but you couldn't exactly sort them with any degree of certainty.

I know, this definitely needs an update.
