ARTinvestment.RU   29 апреля 2019

In the list of world sites that do not meet the expectations of business and leisure travel, also includes "Manneken Pis" in Brussels, "the little Mermaid" in Copenhagen, Moulin-Руж, Notre Dame and the leaning tower

this writes the newspaper Independent. Experts interviewed 2,000 passengers of easyJet. Meeting with the "Mona Lisa" in the Louvre is not delighted, almost 9 out of 10 of Britons surveyed. Almost as many were against visit checkpoint Charlie — now-closed border wall divided Berlin. Closes the top three disappointments Manneken Pis in Brussels. Respondents were almost unanimous in the opinion that look there on that.

However, a lot depends on the representativeness of the survey. British tourists — is very different. As well as Russian. Like the French. EasyJet — is a low-cost airline, which seldom aristocrats. So the findings of the survey, rather, a natural result of the popular vote.

in addition, because the article is still not clear, by what criterion do people have voted against attractions. Whether they saw them and they did not like. Whether "seen on Instagram," and the desire to watch never showed up. Rather, the second. Because the list of things Britons would like to see in the first place the Northern lights in Norway, lake Como in Italy Tulip fields in Holland. Of cultural sights there is only the Acropolis and the Coliseum.

Well, at least that-то.

Unusual side result of this research was information about how people choose where to go. It turns out that the majority decides about the place of visit under the impression from other people's photos on Instagram. And one of the reasons — to make your beautiful photos. Well, that explains a lot. The "Mona Lisa" they catch something. A dense group of Japanese and Chinese tourists next to a small picture is unlikely to get close enough to make a normal selfie.
