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."
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.
As the title suggests, the real meat of the report focuses on how competitive countries are in developing their respective tourism industries. The overall index shows Switzerland, Germany and Austria leading the world in their "attractiveness and ability to develop their travel and tourism industries."
Spain ranked No. 4 followed by the United Kingdom, the United States, France, Canada, Sweden and Singapore. Haiti came in last along with other poor nations Chad (139th), Burundi (138th), Sierra Leone (137th), and Guinea (136th).
