New data from Google has turned up which destinations are googled the most — and popular places such as Paris, London and Rome aren’t even in the top five. 

According to Google’s 2016 data, people were most interested in visiting Reykjavik, Havana, Toronto, Mexico City and Tokyo, writes Laura Parvan for Travel Wires

Google has also provided some insight into who is searching for each of these places. 

“As Iceland is the ideal destination for adventure travel and Northern Lights spotting, trips to Reykjavik were preferred by women in their 20s and 30s,” writes Parvan. 

Cuba has enjoyed a surge in popularity, so it’s not surprising people are searching for Havana. 

“With the renewed diplomatic relationships between USA and Cuba this year and the first Florida-Havana commercial flight launched in August, people began to show their interest in the Caribbean island nation. According to Google report, men in their 30s and 40s were the ones searching for this destination,” says Parvan. 

Tokyo is also enjoying a boost in popularity.

“Since the country has just raised its tourism goals for the next 4 years, the tech-friendly Tokyo will probably not be the only destination in Japan that will appeal to travelers. For now, Google's data indicated that people searching for this destination are predominantly men, aged between 24-35,” writes Parvan.
