Tuvalu, The World’s Least Travelled Country


After studying which is the least visited country in the world, Thomas Brag of Yes Theory booked himself a flight to visit the tiny nation of Tuvalu, which is located in the Pacific Ocean, midway between Hawai’i and Australia. At first, Brag was unsure about what to expect from this tiny nation, but after 24 hours on the island, he fell in love with the people and the unique and amazing culture of Tuvalu.

Yep, I travelled to what the internet deems the least visited country in the world. The reality is that the statistics behind this are far from perfect. Many of these small countries don’t actually count how many people come visit. So it’s very hard to really tell which country truly has the least visitors. Either way, I went to Tuvalu, which is somewhere in the bottom of the list… and my experience was shocking.

Sadly, the islands of Tuvalu will be one of the first to sink if the oceans rise with global warming.

Tuvalu has about 11,000 residents and sadly one of the first countries to be forecasted to disappear as a result of rising oceans caused by climate change. Since the day I found out about this country I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it wondering what the people are like what there is to do in a country without any tourism infrastructure and wanting to go tell a story about this country that could possibly disappear very soon.
