The study was conducted by Kuoni, a tourism website in the UK. They analyzed over 452,000 Trip Advisor reviews by people who most often reviewed sights as beautiful.

We analyzed TripAdvisor data for sights in over 267 cities around the world. Using the ‘Things to Do’ section of the TripAdvisor website, the sights in each location that had the largest number of mentions of ‘beautiful’ in their review were ranked as the most beautiful sights for the specific location.
