Most Desired Travel Destination

Report
Which Destination Would You Prefer to
Visit on Holiday?
BY ANNIKA DREGO AND RONA SCHWITTER
Method of Collecting Data
 For our assignment we surveyed 100 people within
the ages of 13 to 15 on which destination they would
most like to travel to.
 We achieved this by using a website that allowed us
to devise a poll which we used to obtain our
information. We then sent the poll to our classmates
via facebook.
Hypothesis
 The options on our poll were the UK, the USA,
Thailand, Mexico, Greece, France, Japan, New
Zealand, India and Spain.
 We hypothesised that the most popular travel
destination would be the UK because it has a large
impact on the music scene and there are lots of
popular tourist locations. We thought that New
Zealand would be the least popular as it is similar to
Australia and seems less interesting in comparison
to the other countries featured in our poll.

votes.
The UK was third most popular with 12 votes.
Fourth most popular were Japan and France, with 10
votes each.
New Zealand and Thailand both came in fifth, with a total
of 8 votes each.
Both Spain and India were in sixth place, having six votes
each.
Lastly, Mexico was the least popular destination, with only
two votes.
Discussion
 We think that the USA was the most popular travel
destination because it is well known for its food, it is
cheaper to shop there, has many successful tourist
attractions and is one of the central hubs of the
world.
 We also think that Mexico was the least popular
destination because it is a well known fact that
Mexico is one of the dangerous countries on Earth,
with high rates of homicides, drug dealing, robberies
and kidnapping. It also doesn’t have many popular
tourist attractions.
Conclusion
 We successfully surveyed 100 students of Cheltenham
Girls High School between the ages of 13 to 15 on which
destination they would most want to travel to.
 Our hypothesis was proven wrong. We thought that the UK
would be the most popular destination and New Zealand
would be the least popular one, but in fact the USA was the
most popular whereas Mexico was the least popular.
 We could have improved on our report by repeating our
survey several more times for reliability, but the timeframe
we were given, made it difficult for us to achieve this.
