Machu Picchu First Place: the Details

On the Go Tours, a tourism company,  compiled data from Instagram users worldwide, finding that the hashtag Machu Picchu reached number 12 among the most popular on a global level and: number 1 in South America! This means that the wonderful Inca citadel is the most photographed destination in all this part of the continent, more than traditional top places like Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires.

Thus the Inca sanctuary is included in a global elite of premier destinations for tourism according to Instagram users, which is led by the Eiffel Tower, the Big Ben, Colorado’s Grand Canyon, London’s Eye and the Empire State Building in New York City (these are the top five).

This is one more of the recognitions and massive praise the Inca citadel has won lately; actually, the number of visitors, both national and foreign, is increasing every year, and expectations are quite high this year. And for the year 2021, the number of foreign tourists visiting Peru is expected to reach between 6 and 7 million. On 2017, Peru has already become the favorite destination in South America for Americans traveling to this region, with 598.685 visitors.
