Tourist attractions are like celebrities – it is hard to resist the urge to take a selfie with them if they are next to you. However, some attractions seem to have a greater selfie-appeal. A new research by AttractionTix has found that the most popular selfie attraction is Paris’ Eiffel Tower. Moreover, the iron structure surpassed last year’s leader in the ranking – the Colosseum.
According to the ranking, there are nearly 11,000 selfies with the Eiffel Tower on Instagram alone. What is interesting is that this is not the only Paris-based attraction that made to this year’s list. Disneyland Paris is the 7th most popular tourist selfie background. Moulen Rouge, one of the world’s most famous clubs, is 15th.
Disneyland Paris is not the only Disney spot on the ranking. Florida’s Disney World has also made it to the list of top selfie attractions. Moreover, it is the second most popular tourist location for selfies. It is just 1,000 selfies away from the Eiffel Tower.
However, the true selfie leader is London. The UK capital dominated not only the top 10, but the entire list as well. Big Ben is fourth with 8,780 hits, while the London Bridge is 10th. Other London attractions that can also be seen in ranking include the Buckingham Palace (11), London Eye (12), Tower Bridge (16), Madame Tussauds London (22), The Shard (23), Tower of London (24), London Zoo (25)… and that goes on and one. It seems that if you want to have the ultimate selfie collection, you just need to go to London!
