Most Googled Travel Destinations

When most people travel, be it for a family vacation or a group adventure, it all starts with some research.  For some people its a detailed exploration and fact finding mission; for others, its just enough to make a decision to book or choose somewhere else to go.  Either way, Google is almost always the first source used when travellers are considering a destination.  In addition to looking for prices and deals, they search for reviews, weather conditions, accommodations and food options, tours and ticket prices, and what type of traveller the destination is suited to.

Given the fact that you’re here on our Go GlobeHopper website, it’s proof that, as a traveller, you’re seeking information.  But have you ever wondered just how many other people are looking for the same information with their sights set on travelling to the same place?
