Home to stunning beaches, gorgeous mountains, glittering lagoons and some rather stunning beaches, a new study by teflSearch has just named Croatia as the world’s most searched for travel destination.
Drawing in 2.71% of the total searches made, the Western Balkan nation beat off other competitors for the top spot on the list by a minuscule margin.
So how did they determine the results? The teach English abroad website picked out very specific search terms like ‘holidays in France’ and ‘holidays in Greece’, and translated them to the native language of each country. Each term was then measured by how often they were looked up on search engines like Google, Naver, and Baidu.
All the results were then broken down according to travellers’ home countries. Check out the break down below.
