  1. 1. Top 10 famous countries in every continent By: Michaella N. Anez
  2. 2. ASIA
  3. 3. 01 JAPAN Japan is number 1 in the list because- Japan scores high in all areas, and especially in “Entrepreneurship,” “Movers,” “Power,” and “Cultural Influence.” Abe’s Japan has been trying to come off two “lost decades,” a period of sluggish economic growth that followed the burst of multiple asset bubbles. Investors have taken notice. Together with India, Japan’s equity markets have been among the top Asian performing markets over the last five years. JAPAN IS RANKED 1 IN ASIA, AND RANK 5 IN WORLD RANK. CAPITAL OF JAPAN IS TOKYO AND KYOTO.
  4. 4. 02 SINGAPO RE Singapore receives high scores in “Movers,” “Entrepreneurship,” “Cultural Influence” (Culturally significant in terms of entertainment, fashionable, has an influential culture, modern, prestigious, trendy), and “Open for Business.” SINGAPORE RANKED 2 IN ASIA AND RANKED 16 IN WORLD RANK. CAPITAL OF SINGAPORE IS SINGAPORE. Singapore is a city, a nation and a state..
  5. 5. 03 CHINA China scores high in four areas, “Power,” “Movers,” “Heritage,” and “Entrepreneurship.” China’s high scores in all three areas, especially in “Entrepreneurship” is an encouraging sign for the future of the world’s second largest economy. Entrepreneurship will help China make the next leap forward, from imitation to innovation, which will make its growth sustainable. CHINA RANKED 3 IN ASIA AND RANKED 20 IN WORLD RANK. CAPITAL OF CHINA IS BEIJING It was in Tian'anmen Square on October 1st, 1949, that Chairman Mao Zedong proclaimed the establishment of the People's Republic of China, with Beijing as its capital...
  6. 6. 04 SOUTH KOREA South Korea receives high score in three areas, “Entrepreneurship” (Open to the global economy, educated population, entrepreneurial, innovative, provides easy access to capital, skilled labor force, technological expertise, transparent business practices, well-developed infrastructure, rule of law), “Power,” and “Movers.” SOUTH KOREA RANKED 2 IN ASIA AND RANKED 22 IN WORLD RANK. SEOUL IS THE CAPITAL OF SOUTH KOREA...
  7. 7. 05 INDIA India scores high on three criteria: “Movers,” “Heritage,” and “Power” (A leader, economically influential, politically influential, strong international alliances, strong military). Meanwhile, India has maintained a stable political and macroeconomic environment, reformed the tax system, and fought corruption with de-monetization. These policies have helped India’s economy outperform most emerging markets in per capita GDP (Gross domestic product) growth, while bringing inflation and unemployment down. INDIA RANKED 5 IN ASIA AND RANKED 25 IN WORLD RANK. NEW DELHI IS THE CAPITAL OF INDIA
  8. 8. 06 THAILAN D Thailand scores high on four criteria: “Adventure,” “Movers,” “Heritage” (Culturally accessible, has a rich history, has great food, many cultural attractions), and Open for Business. Still, Thailand has yet to find its old glory days, remaining an emerging market. THAILAND RANKED 6 IN ASIA AND RANKED 27 IN WORLD RANK. BANGKOK IS THE CAPITAL OF THAILAND.
  9. 9. 07 MALAYSI A Malaysia’s scoring profile is very similar to that of Vietnam. That means that the country scores highly in the “Movers” and “Open for Business” criteria, though that hasn’t helped its equity markets, which have been underperforming those of other Asian countries over the last five years. MALAYSIA RANKED 7 IN ASIA AND RANKED 34 IN WORLD RANK. Kuala Lumpur IS THE CAPITAL OF MALAYSIA.
  10. 10. 08 INDONESI A Like Vietnam, Indonesia receives high grades on “Movers.” But it ranks highly on another criterion, “Open for Business” (Bureaucratic, cheap manufacturing costs, corruption, favorable tax environment, transparent government practices). A business-friendly environment and falling corruption and debt levels has helped Indonesians catch up with other Asian countries and become better off than Filipinos in per capita income in recent years. INDONESIA RANKED 8 IN ASIA AND RANKED 43 IN WORLD RANK. JAKARTA IS THE CAPITAL OF INDONESIA
  11. 11. 09 VIETNAM Like the Philippines, Vietnam ranks average in most criteria, but it ranks highly on “Movers,” which counts for 10% of the ranking, and includes such things as “Different, distinctive, dynamic, unique,” which have fueled Vietnam’s robust growth rates. Investors have taken notice. In the last twelve months, Vietnam’s equity markets were among the top performing markets of Asia. VIETNAM RANK 9 IN ASIA AND RANKED 52 IN WORLD RANK. HANOI IS THE CAPITAL OF VIETNAM
  12. 12. 10 PHILIPPINE S While ranking average on most criteria, the Philippines is ranking high on the “Adventure” criterion, which weighs for 3.7% of the score and includes such things as “friendly, fun, pleasant climate, and scenic.” Apparently, Duterte’s Philippines has maintained something from the glory days of the 1960s, though it has been bypassed by one Asian country after another in per capita GDP. (GROSS DOMESTIC PRODUCT.) PHILIPPINES RANKED 10 IN ASIA AND RANKED 45 IN WORLD RANK. MANILA IS THE CAPITAL OF THE PHILIPPINES
  13. 13. AFRICA
  14. 14. 01 MOROCCO The most visited country in Africa is Morocco. This Northern African nation saw a whopping 12.3 million visitors in 2019, making it the most visited country on the entire continent, The culture of Morocco is sure to be a big drawcard, considering there is nowhere in the world quite like it. The sights, sounds and colors of the medina is enough to leave you mesmerized. Then there’s the food, tagines, plenty of spice and endless sweet pastries to finish off the day. Some of the highlights of Morocco include Marrakesh, one of the most chaotic and charismatic cities in the world. Then, of course, there is Fes, a historic city with so much culture. RABAT IS THE CAPITAL OF MOROCCO
  15. 15. 02 EGYPT In 2019 there were an impressive 11.3 million visitors to Egypt, making this the second most visited country in Africa. The main draw cards in Egypt are of course the Egyptian pyramids, the pharaoh’s tombs and the Luxor temple dating back thousands of years. CAIRO IS THE CAPITAL OF EGYPT
  16. 16. 03 SOUTH AFRICA This country comes in third on the list, but it is the front runner for safari-goers. South Africa remains the most popular choice for a safari, where you can spot the big five and spend some time out in the wilderness. As for the total visitors? There were 10.5 million visitors to South Africa in 2019! CAPETOWN IS THE CAPITAL OF SOUTH AFRICA ( PRETORIA, Bloemfontein)
  17. 17. 04 TUNISIA Next up is Tunisia, with 8.3 million visitors making their way to the Northern African country in 2019. Tunisia is famous for its ancient cities, the Saharan desert and its hot desert temperatures. It has also been dubbed by some as the “next Morocco”, for being slightly less under the radar and a more affordable option just a short flight from many of Europe’s major cities. TUNIS IS THE CAPITAL OF TUNISIA
  18. 18. 05 ZIMBABWE There are many reasons to visit Zimbabwe, but most of them start with safari and end with the Victoria Falls. This landlocked country in Southern Africa is still one of the most popular choices for safari goers in search of the big five. The game viewing in Zimbabwe is second to none, but the Victoria Falls are unlike any other. As one of the world’s largest waterfalls, they extend some 1,708 meters in length.
  19. 19. 06 Côte d’Ivoire With beach resorts and rainforests as far as the eye can see, the Côte d’Ivoire (also known as the Ivory Coast) is a popular choice, especially for European travelers. With a French-colonial legacy, the country has long been a favorite for travelers in search of the sea, sun, and beautiful temperatures found in West Africa. Yamoussoukro IS THE CAPITAL OF Côte d’Ivoire
  20. 20. 07 UGANDA Uganda has been living in the shadow of Rwanda, which has quickly become the top choice for mountain gorilla viewing. But it is here in Uganda where you can have the same experience for much less, given the less-developed nature of the country. It is (perhaps to contrary belief) safe to visit Uganda and visitors will be delighted by how much raw beauty lies within the country borders. KAMPALA IS THE CAPITAL OF UGNDA
  21. 21. 08 KENYA Over in East Africa, Kenya tops the list for the most visited country. This is where one of the most famous films on the continent, Out of Africa, was filmed. The Maasai Mara has become one of the most popular choices for safari-goers. NAIROBI IS THE CAPITAL OF KENYA
  22. 22. 09 MAURITIUS If you’re looking for a more tropical getaway when visiting Africa or perhaps a destination to tag on to your safari, look no further than Mauritius. Here you will find beautiful beaches, mountainous treks and world class diving. PORT LOUIS IS THE CAPITAL OF MAURITIUS
  23. 23. 10 ESWANTINI Landlocked in the center of South Africa, eSwatini (formerly Swaziland) has long existed in the shadow of South Africa. This rounds out our list of the most visited countries in Africa. MBABANE AND LOBAMBA IS THE CAPITAL OF eSwatini.
  24. 24. NORTH AMERICA
  25. 25. 01 CANADA At nearly 10 million square kilometers or over 3.8 million square miles, Canada is the largest country in North America and the second-largest country in the world (Russia is the first). However, with a population of around 38 million people, it is only the 37th most populous world country due to much of its northern geography (80%) being uninhabitable. Canada's official languages are English and French, with Quebec being the main French-speaking Canadian province. OTTAWA IS THE CAPITAL OF CANADA.
  26. 26. 02 MEXICO Twenty-two percent of North and Central American citizens (130 million people) live in the country of Mexico, making it the most populous Spanish-speaking country in the world. Mexico borders the Pacific Ocean on its west coast and the Gulf of Mexico on its east coast. Its area is just under 2 million square kilometers or 761,600 square miles. MEXICO CITY IS THE CAPITAL OF MEXICO
  27. 27. 03 USA In between Canada and Mexico lies the United States, where over half of the entire North and Central American population lives. The United States is home to over 330 million people and spans an area of over 9 million square kilometers or nearly 3.8 million square miles. Although there is no official language in the United States, 78% of its population speaks English, while a significant minority (over 13%) speaks Spanish. WASHINGTON DC IS THE CAPITAL OF USA
  28. 28. 04 Antigua and Barbuda Antigua and Barbuda is one country comprised of two main islands and many smaller islands, and its total area is 442 square kilometers (170 square miles). Ninety-seven percent of the country's population (under 100,000 people) lives on the island of Antigua, and the majority of the population speaks Antiguan and Barbudan Creole. Antigua and Barbuda are part of the British Commonwealth, a voluntary association of states that are now sovereign but primarily used to be British colonies. SAINT. JOHN’S IS THE CAPITAL OF ANTIGUA AND BARBUDA
  29. 29. 05 BAHAMAS The Bahamas, formally known as the Commonwealth of The Bahamas, include over 700 islands and islets. Nearly 400,000 people live in The Bahamas, many of whom are descendants of freed slaves after Britain abolished slavery in the early 19th century. The total area of The Bahamas is 13,943 square kilometers (5,358 square miles) and its official language is English, as it is also a member of the British Commonwealth. NASSAU IS THE CAPITAL OF BAHAMAS

  32. 32. 08 DOMINICA Even though only 0.01% of the North and Central American population lives in Dominica, it's still quite popular for tourists to visit. Dominica has just over 72,000 citizens living in 751 square kilometers (290 square miles). Unlike the similarly-named Dominican Republic, Dominica's official language is English, and it is located close to Venezuela in South America. ROSEAU IS THE CAPITAL OF DOMINICA.
