Here are the 10 most popular travel destinations of 2019 according to the search engine
This week Google published the results of the so-called «Search in Year 2019», or the ranking of travel destinations that recorded the highest search volumes during the past year.
The ranking, which refers to the United States, still gives important indications on current trends. Obviously, it only takes into account data relating to online searches, therefore the destinations indicated are not necessarily the most visited ones physically.
Here are the 10 most popular tourist destinations according to Google.
Made up of a chain of atolls, the Maldives are famous for resorts, one on an island, overlooking turquoise waters and pristine coral reefs.
But a trip to the Maldives is not made of explorations, given the very limited spaces, which makes choosing a hotel the most important decision of the entire trip, and consequently also the most popular search in terms of numbers this year.
The United Nations World Tourism Organization found that Japan experienced the second highest growth in revenue from international tourism in September 2019, second only to Australia.
A mixture of temples, colorful parks and ultramodern scenarios, which make the hunt for previews on the territories one of the most impressive activities of Google.
3) Bora Bora
Crystal clear lagoons and white sand, Bora Bora is the ideal place for those who love to swim in an unspoiled maritime scenario and enjoy diving.
After the collapse of the early 2000s, it seems decidedly topical again, primarily in US Google searches.
4) Las Vegas
Here we must not be fooled, because although it cannot be denied that the destination is highly popular, the volume of research can often be referred to and directly connected to the vast literature that sees the city as a protagonist.
Numbers in hand, Mexico is one of the most popular destinations for Americans, which is also growing strongly among Europeans. This is why the fifth place in search is very close to it.
Mexico means above all a warm climate, low costs and an infinite series of possibilities ready to cover every preference, from history to sport, passing through social life and culinary specialties.
From sixth to tenth place: a lot of America and then Costa Rica
To follow, in the ranking registered by Google, the domination of the American stages stands out, with Alaska in sixth place and then New Orleans, California and New York.
However, Costa Rica closes in tenth place, characterized by a very low cost of living but a great deal of attention to tourism, in a country that can build on an economy with a strongly growing trend.
