It's hard to know which countries would welcome you with open arms and which ones keep you at arm's length, but the World Economic Forum has made this evaluation somewhat easier.
Tucked inside the organization's 517-page "Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Report 2013" is a chart about how countries feel about foreign visitors. It ranks 140 countries on a scale of 1 to 7, with 1 being "very unwelcome" and 7 being "very welcome."
Iceland and New Zealand topped the list with scores of 6.8 each followed by:
8. Bosnia and Herzegovina
10. Burkina Faso
And the least friendliest? Bolivia ranks at the bottom with a 4.1 ranking, followed by:
3. Russian Federation
8. Slovak Republic
Incidentally, the United States came in at 102nd with a score of 6.0.
There's a lot more in this report that examines economic factors rather than crowd-sourced opinions in its findings. Countries were evaluated based on a combination of statistics, travel and tourism institutions and experts.
