Abstract. There has been research regarding relationship between human personalities and visiting places using Big Five Factor (BFF). However, other factors such as Social media usage, Hobby, Gender, Age, and Religion and so on are regarded as also major factors which effects the choice of visiting place of a person. Using questionnaire designed by authors, these factors as well as BFF were prepared for this research. The visiting places were collected by a smartphone app called SWARM and classified in 10 categories. In sum, personal data of 34 participants had been collected for several months. To figure out the relationship between these factors and visiting places, random forest technique of ensemble method was used.
