    This has to be the most incorrect report ever published. The French, in general, HATE tourist, and treat tourists with disdain, resentment and anger. How they can be number two on the list is none-sense. 2 from the bottom maybe. Even my French friends are laughing at this.

      I think that the last person who commented about the most friendly countries toward tourists is absolutery right. I’m French (at least half) and I can say that it is not a very friendly country with anyone who is not from here, including of course tourists.
      As for Spain, it might have become as they went through tough times in relation with their economy and tourism. So does it mean that a country has to go through difficulties to become a little bit friendlier to tourists?
      For me Brazil and the USA (the two countries I know best) are very friendly with visitors in general. I did not see what is their rankings.
