Which tourist landmarks would you most like to wake up next to? A survey of the British public has revealed some of the favourites and there are a few surprises.
Figures show that the Great Barrier Reef – located off the coast of Queensland in north-eastern Australia and is the largest living thing on Earth – is the favoured view to wake up to in the morning.
The survey of 2,000 Brits found that 28% would like to wake up looking at the coral reef system, whilst other popular landmarks included the Eiffel Tower (24%) and Sydney Opera House (19%).
Other landmarks that featured included Hulopoe Beach in lanai, Hawaii, Shoshone Falls in Idaho, Big Ben, The Statue of Liberty and the Hollywood sign.
There were also some unique choices further down the list, including Saint Basil’s Cathedral, located in the Red Square in Moscow, Russia, and Sa Pa Terraces, in Vietnam.
Included in the survey, was also what view people would like to open their curtains to in the morning, with a deserted beach coming out on top – attracting 45% of the vote.
One if four of those surveyed would choose to wake up to the countryside, whilst only 15% wanted to wake up with a city view.
Views of the countryside were mostly preferred by the over 55s, whilst views with waterfalls were extremely popular amongst 16 to 24 year olds.
Other views included a lake, snowy mountains, rainforest, hot spring, dessert and also an African plain.
The survey was commissioned by online interiors retailer Curtains.com, as part of their ‘Beautiful Mornings campaign’, which commissioned photographers to showcase mornings from every time zone across the world.
