Taken from this article (Mental Floss) (http://mentalfloss.com/article/90393/every-countrys-most-popular-tourist-attraction-one-handy-map)

I'm a bit surprised that Iguazu Falls (is that how you spell it in English? :lol:) is cited as the most popular tourist destination in Brazil. It's popular, but I would have thought that the Sugarloaf Mountain in Rio would have been the favourite among tourists. Foreign tourists, at least.

OK, data collected from Trip Advisor users?

Are these representative of all vlasses of tourists? Or just a bunch of younger people with time and money for tripping?

I have no idea, are you wondering because according to them in Britain the most popular tourist attraction are the Harry Potter studios? :lol:

I'm assuming that most Trip Advisor users are in the younger demographic, it being an online site and all. Most people above a certain age seem to have some sort of resistance to using the internet.
