Actualmente ocupan el puesto numero 6 en el ranking pero al parecer tienen preparado un plan para mejorar y asaltar quito puesto. Pronto pillaran a Espain que creo que es el numero 2 !!! :
Ahora ya en serio, cual es el plan de Espain para mejorar en turismo? Me refiero ademas de
Esta claro que UK recibe millones de turistas pese al clima, no creis que nuestra patria podria esforzarse un poco en potenciar el turismo cultural y no el de playa (=galeses e ingleses nortenios borrachos en las playas) ? Creo que seria un forma de hacer dinero mientras ecnontramos ese tan ansiado "nuevo modelo productivo".
Es muy triste que hables con un ingles y solo conozca de Espania la Sagrada Familia y Benidorm. No todos conocen la Alhambra y por supuesto no tienen ni puta idea de la existencia de otras ciudades como Toledo o Salamanca que creo que tienen un gran potencial para atraer a muchos mas turistas extranjeros. BBC News - UK must do more to bring in tourists, says Cameron
UK must do more to bring in tourists, says Cameron
The UK must work to become one of the top five tourist destinations in the world, David Cameron has said.
The country was not "doing enough" to rise from its current sixth place, the prime minister added.
Speaking in London's Hyde Park, he urged people to be more "proud" of the UK and seize a "huge" opportunity to attract overseas visitors.
A report last month suggested tourism's contribution to the economy could grow by more than 60% to £188bn by 2020.
The number of jobs directly and indirectly linked to tourism could rise by 264,000 to 2.89 million in that time, said the study for Visit Britain.
'Back from brink'
Mr Cameron said measures to help the industry would be speeding up the process of getting visitors' visas for the UK in India and China.
He said: "I want to see us in the top five destinations in the world. But that means being much more competitive internationally.
"Take Chinese tourists, for example. We're their 22nd most popular destination. But Germany is forecast to break into their top 10. Why can't we?"
He added: "If we can't always beat Germany at football, then we can beat them at tourism."
Mr Cameron said: "For every half a per cent increase in our share of the world market we can add £2.7bn to our economy and more than 50,000 jobs.
"At a point when our economy is coming back from the brink - we just can't let this sort of opportunity pass us by."
'Up our game'
In a criticism of the former Labour government, Mr Cameron said there had been too much emphasis on marketing "Cool Britannia", rather than on the UK's heritage.
Conservative MP John Penrose is compiling a report for the prime minister on whether it is possible to encourage UK citizens to spend more of their money at home, rather than abroad.
Mr Cameron said he hoped the country could "up our game" to increase the proportion from 36% to 50%.
The United Nations ranks the UK as the sixth-most visited destination in the world, behind France, the US, Spain, China and Italy.
Domestic and overseas visitors put an estimated £115bn a year into the UK. Foreign visitors' spending could almost double from £16bn to £31bn by 2020, according to Visit Britain.
