The Countries that Border the Most Countries
|China borders 14 other countries. The same as Russia. That make them great travel hubs.|
Two countries actually share the honor. Both Russia and China border 14 countries each. Including each other. Russia is the biggest country in the world, but China actually has longer land borders. Sharing borders with so many countries will create challenges with regards to border controls, but certainly also opportunities when it comes to trade and tourism. And from a traveller’s viewpoint, both Russia and China are great hubs for travel to all of its neighbours and beyond.
Russia is also the only country that separates Norway from North Korea. How about that for some quality trivia?
