FRANCE AS THE WORLD'S
TOP TOURIST DESTINATION

In 2015, France attracted over 83 million foreign tourists, making it once again the leading tourist destination in the world. Of these international arrivals, many tourists mentioned food and wine as reasons for choosing to visit France. 

This rich gastronomic heritage was recognized when the “gastronomic meal of the French” was included in UNESCO’s Intanglible Cultural Heritage List in 2010. Moreover, the French tourism industry accounts for around 7% of it’s annual GDP, making it a key contributor to France’s economic growth.
