And the world’s most Googled attractions are...

Do any of your favourite attractions make the list?

From the smallest hole-in-the-wall spots in the most off-the-beaten-path destinations to the world’s most visited landmarks, Google can now be used to search for almost anything when it comes to travel.


Great Barrier Reef


But on the ubiquitous search engine, which tourist attractions are most sought out? 


Well according to new research released by Globehunters, in the infinite tapestry of tourist spots around the world, Disney rules, with Disneyland (Anaheim) averaging 1.7 million searches per month, followed by Disneyland Paris and Disney World (Orlando). 


Following this trio were a pair of somewhat older cultural magnets, Taj Mahal (India) and Machu Picchu (Peru), and the ever-popular Grand Canyon (Arizona). 


The world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa (Dubai), the Eiffel Tower (France), Yellowstone NP (Wyoming) and Niagara Falls (New York, Ontario) rounded out the top ten most searched attractions on the list. 


Only one Australian attraction made the top 30 attractions, with the Great Barrier Reef finishing in 29th spot (273,000 views per month).


What are your thoughts on this list? Any notable omissions?
