Google Shopping Searches World Map

If you’ve ever traveled abroad, you’ve probably searched the Internet for what certain items that you’ll want to pick up on your trip. Doing this likely involves a Google search for “How much does [Product X] cost in [Country X]?” or something similar.

Let’s start with the more amusing searches. It’s not at all surprising the people going to Cuba search most often for cigars or the people travelling to Belgium ask about the price of beer.

It’s not all laughs, however: People also want to know how much a funeral costs in Guyana, how much a kidney costs in Iran and how much slaves cost in Mauritania.
