Just like to find out what are the reason to refuse our WHM visa and hopefully someone who has successfully appeal can help...

Refusal reason, using UK as a platform to earmn money to travel to other parts of Europe as travel plan shows >70% travel are plan outside uk. therefore working in uk is not treated as incidental...and it defeat the whm visa purpose...

They have given you their reason for rejecting your application. So act on it and file your appeal.

Hien is right - the reason your visa was rejected is very obvious.

Although the UK is part of Europe, your visa allows you to work in UK to fund your travels in UK, not other places in Europe. (Of course we all did travel around Europe, but you need to ensure that your application emphasises more on inter-UK travels).
