Quoting bwiiian

That is quite a surprising list

It really doesn't say anything about tourism. Only about number of arrivals within the SE Asia region (so I guess as such it's a more accurate answer to the original question of this thread than most). The percentage of people arriving in one country and only staying for one or two days before moving on (whether to other SE Asia countries, or to Europe/Oceania) might be much higher than in another country, which will completely skew this number compared to that for the country which most tourists spend the most time in.

Yep, that's why Malaysia and Singapore are high on the list.
Many people probably cross the border for a day or so, to go shopping or working.

In that document it also had a chart on the US$ spent by visitors in the listed countries.. and it also had stated that the number of inbound tourists in Malaysia may not literally mean that it had more tourists as they may be attributed to Thais and Singaporeans crossing Malaysia by land to reach the other country... this is shown by the lower US$ earned by Malaysia compared to Thailand...but for the other countries the ranking remains the same...

I guess in Singapore also Malaysians just go in and out of Singapore everyday as you'd see in it border area...
