Each year MasterCard releases their Global Destination Cities, and this year, the most visited global city is once again London. The English capital welcomed over 18.82 million travelers receiving the crown five out of the past seven years the study has been conducted. Following close behind is Bangkok, which saw some 18.24 million travelers. No surprise, that New York and Los Angeles are the only US cities to crack the top 20. The MasterCard’s 2015 Global Destination Cities Index also shows that international visitor numbers and their cross-border spending have grown faster than world real GDP since 2009.
