According to the report in 2014 entitled "Tourism Highlights" World Tourism Organization, Algeria is the fourth tourist destination in Africa in 2013, with 2.7 million foreign tourists in 2013.
The WTO report states that "the cultural richness, with its museums, ruins and dialects, as well as the different nature of Algeria - consisting of its coastline, the mountains and the Sahara - are the main drivers of this club."
The crisis in the tourism sector in Algeria and the various shortcomings that plague this activity has not stopped draining about 2.7 million tourists, a figure up sharply compared to 2012, when 2.3 million people are displaced in foreign Algeria.

Tourism in 2030
"Tourism Towards 2030" (Tourism in 2030) is an updated version of the WTO on the long-term tourism in the two decades between 2010 and 2030 and is the result of extensive research that is part of the long-term forecasts regularly carried out by the WTO since 1990, the new study follows the publication of Tourism in 2020, which has become a reference point in the forecast world international tourism.
An essential part of this publication consists of quantitative predictions about what will be the international tourism demand during a period beginning in 2010, the reference year and ends in 2030 These updated estimates are supplemented by an analysis of the factors, social factors , political, economic, environmental and technological issues that have affected tourism in the past, and should act on the sector in the future. According to the report, it says that the number of international tourist arrivals worldwide is expected to grow on average by 3.3% per year from 2010 to 2030.
Over time, the pace of growth will gradually slow from 3.8% in 2012 to 2.9% in 2030, but the reference numbers will increase. In absolute terms, the number of international tourist arrivals are projected to increase to about 43 million per year, compared to an average increase of 28 million euro per year in the period 1995 to 2010, if the expected rate of growth continues, the number of international tourist arrivals worldwide will reach 1.4 billion in 2020 and $ 1.8 billion in 2030.
The number of international tourist arrivals in the emerging economies of Asia, Latin America, Central and Eastern Europe, Eastern Mediterranean Europe, Middle East and Africa will increase twice as fast (4.4% per year) than in advanced economies (+ 2.2% per annum). As a result, it is expected that by 2015, emerging economies welcome more tourists than advanced economies. In 2030, 57% of international tourist arrivals will cover destinations in emerging economies (compared to 30% in 1980) and 43% of the destinations advanced (compared to 70% in 1980) economies.
By region, the largest increase will be in Asia Pacific, where it is expected that the number of arrivals to increase from 331 million to 535 million in 2030 (4.9% per year). The Middle East and Africa should also see the number of arrivals has more than doubled in this period from 61 to 149 million and 50 million to 134 million, respectively. Europe and the Americas will experience, in comparison, more modest growth 475-744000000 and 150-248000000 respectively.
With faster growth in other regions, we will witness an increase in global market share to be owned by Asia Pacific (22% in 2010 to 30% in 2030), the Middle East (6% to 8%) and Africa (5% to 7%). As a result, Europe and the Americas will see their share of global tourism decline a bit 'more - by 51% to 41% and from 16% to 14% - mainly due to slower growth contemplated in the destinations confirms North America, Europe, North and Western Europe.
