The Least Crowded Locations on Earth

You will have plenty of leg and elbow room if you visit one of these locations.  Don’t expect to have to stand in lines at shops or wait for service at restaurants.  MarketMAPS takes a look at some of the least crowded places on Earth, with land to people ratios that are just astonishing. 

 Greenland

Despite its name, there isn’t much greenery in Greenland.  Three times the size of Texas, Greenland is mostly covered by Earth’s second largest ice cap.  Its 58,000 inhabitants clutter mostly in coastal communities.  Greenland’s economy and population aren’t expected to grow much over the years; although travel to Greenland has been up recently due to an increasing number or travelers seeking out the world’s less-populated areas.  If you want to get around in Greenland, you’ve got two choices: air or water.  There isn’t much in the way of roads.

Falkland Islands

The Falklands, off the coast of South America, are a UK territory and have housed a British naval fleet since the 1800’s.  At various times there have been Argentine, British, Spanish, and French settlements on the islands.  Roughly the size of Connecticut, the islands have a total population of about 3,000.

Mongolia

Mongolia is home to about 3 million people.  That may seem like a lot, but considering that the country is roughly the size of Alaska, that averages out to only 2 people per square kilometer.  The population is condensed in urban areas, while desert and grazing lands are as empty as they were in Genghis Khan’s time.  But people seem to like the open-space.  In 2011, National Geographic Traveler named Mongolia one of the 20 best destinations.

French Guiana

It is said that squirrel monkeys are more abundant than people in this South American country.  The French territory is about the size of South Carolina and home to only 200,000 inhabitants.  While the northern coast is densely populated and relatively modern, the rest of the country is tropical rainforests.  Indigenous people still live in its jungles.  Making improvements or any sort of advanced infrastructure is almost impossible because of the landscape.
