Here’s a Map That Shows the Top Tourist Attraction in Every Country

VoucherCloud, a money-saving mobile app, compiled a map of the most popular tourist attractions from each country around the world according to TripAdvisor’s top-rated “Things to Do” feature.

The map highlights the sights to see in 197 countries and is organised into four different types of attractions: historic, natural, religious, and tourist.

However, the map has unexpected surprises: for instance England’s tourists are flocking to the Harry Potter Studio Tour, and visitors in the United States care more about strolling through Central Park than seeing other natural beauties like Yellowstone National park or the vast Grand Canyon.

In Estonia, you are advised to visit the beautiful Old Town of Tallinn.
