Iceland is great, but cold. I was there in the summertime and it was 15○c. And I was told that it is the warmest it will ever get! But then again if I lived in Dominican Republic I'd love to travel to Iceland from time to time...:)

Playa del Anywhere for a cheap price. (No offence to Dominicans. It's just that the average Canadian tourist - no different than most tourists from the colder, richer world - don't care much about local anything. It's how many stars for the resort and what's the all-inclusive price. My guess would be that less than 2% of Canadians don't get picked up by resort shuttles from the airport.)

Actually, the most surprising thing to me is that there are so few other destinations in Latin America, aside from Cuba and Mexico.

Canadian here. Surprised Venezuela/Colombia aren't on here, not to mention India.

Venezuela is quite dangerous right now while tourism in Colombia has been growing steadily for the last several years but isn't quite as big yet as the others on this list. India has a lot to offer tourists but often is more expensive than the other countries on the list and continues to have big problems with rape and poor hygiene.

I actually am quite surprised India isn't here, but less because of tourism and more because of the enormous Indian diaspora in Canada.

At first I thought CUBA? Then I realized that only WE hold 50 year grudges and Canadians can actually travel there.

It was actually really weird this year travelling around and meeting quite a few Americans. I wonder if Agent Orange will change that.

Cuba was my third to name right after US and Mexico. Pretty popular, and it's not because of the cigar industry.

@lazerquiz People in Iceland aren't "boring" as you put it, that's kind of an offensive comment.

I gathered that he meant that Iceland as a country is 'cold, close, boring', but complimented the icelandic people as being 'nice folks'.

Most travelers to China are recent immigrants from China who are going back and visiting family. Non-ethnic Chinese are typically no more than 10-20% of any direct flight out of Vancouver or Toronto, max. And often much less.

Amazing that almost two thirds of Canadians visited the United States in a single year in 2015. It's a truly jaw-dropping figure that tells a lot about how close the countries are. You just don't see numbers like that with any other country, barring micronations and city-states.
