As the year slowly comes to an end, many platforms are releasing their annual reports. And who better to release one than the world’s largest search engine company? When Google says it, you gotta believe it! So on today’s hot-list, Google ranks the top 10 most searched tourist destinations in the world. Let’s globe-trot in our arm chairs, shall we?


1. Italy

Whoop! The home of art, wine and good food made Google’s #1 this year. Wouldn’t be surprised if Serena Williams’ impulsive lunch date with husband, Alex Ohanian did the trick!

2. Paris

No surprise there! The city of love is definitely one of the top spots in the world, regardless of time and season. Love always reigns 🙂

4. Bahamas

Everyone loves the beach! The Bahamas provides an all-year round summer-like weather, which makes its beaches always better.

Plus, it’s home to world-class scuba diving and snorkelling sites, like the massive Andros Barrier Reef.

5. Ireland

Ireland is best known for its picturesque villages, stunning tracks, trails and waterways. The music is unique, food is good and the people are ever friendly too.

Still the best place in the world for all sorts of gambling and naughty lifestyles. Plus, because “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas”, this Sin City would continue to attract numbers.

7. Bora Bora

Home of white-sand beaches and turquoise waters is French Polynesia’s finest Island, Bora Bora. Some say the island is so nice they had to name it twice, haha.
