The Bucket List: 7 of the Least-Populated Countries

Summer is peak travel season for many of the world’s most popular destinations. Not only can this translate to higher airfare and accommodation costs, but increased crowds and longer queues for museums, monuments and other attractions. The seven destinations in this week’s Bucket List column are among the world’s least-populated countries and territories, all with local populations well below 100,000 as of their last census or most recent estimates. While we can’t guarantee solitude, whether you visit in summer or at another time throughout the year, you will be slightly off the well-beaten tourist path visiting any of these destinations.
