In fact, almost one in twenty of the 2,000 adults polled booked a beach holiday to the Greek island of Skopelos after falling in love with the blue skies and whitewashed Greek buildings.

A further 31 percent have ventured to the Big Apple after watching the original chick-flick Breakfast at Tiffany’s, the Sex and the City movie or 80s classic When Harry Met Sally.

The survey also revealed 14 percent of sun seeking individuals were inspired to visit Thailand after watching Leonardo DiCaprio in The Beach.
And a party loving 13 percent hot-footed it straight to Las Vegas after watching the outlandish antics of the 2009 film The Hangover.
