Welsh tourism is set to skyrocket in 2016 as Wales is now an ever more popular destination for tourists. But how popular is Wales and why? 2014 hosted 932,000 international visitors, spending a huge £368 million whilst they were here. 111,000 visitors hailed from France and 92,000 travelled over from Germany. These figures show a steady increase from 2010 when only 637,000 Europeans decided to pay us a visit.
