    Those are estimates on international visitors only. All visitors to Singapore are international whereas half of NYC's are domestic and therefore excluded from the report.

    NYC visitor statistics.

    Total Visitors to NYC 2000-2010* Visitors (international and domestic) to New York City
    2010: 48.7 million
    2009: 45.6 million
    2008: 47.0 million
    2007: 46.0 million
    2006: 43.8 million
    2005: 42.7 million
    2004: 39.9 million
    2003: 37.8 million
    2002: 35.3 million
    2001: 35.2 million
    2000: 36.2 million

    lol...what relevance does domestic visitors play? It's the foreign ones that matter more. How the hell do the French attract so many tourists? And not just to Paris.

    Singapore is an important layover hub. Just because people check in to the airport, doesn't mean they're actually visiting Singapore.

    Ya know, I can only judge it from having been absent from it: but I lived in Kuala Lumpur for 6 months, so I had plenty of opportunities to go to Singapore. But all the other places north of Malaysia were so much more appealing to me that I never went.
