The Most Instagrammed Locations of 2017

By HarryTuesday 01st August 2017

As well as immersing yourself in a new culture, seeing how the rest of the world live, and discovering new experiences, travelling is also a chance to get some great holiday snaps.

1. Paris

Often hailed the most romantic city on earth, Paris is the ultimate place for loved up couples to take selfies along the Seine. But for the ultimate backdrop, walk to the top of the Eiffel Tower for that iconic Parisian view. You can of course take the lift to the top, but it’s not quite the same experience as walking! Later, stroll away from the main roads and find a little café on a side street for a romantic (and indulgent) chocolat chaud and macaron.

2. Hawaii

A little slice of paradise, Hawaii is the Aloha State that you won’t want to say goodbye to. Sun yourself on the beaches, and discover all the colours of the rainbow on the island. The sapphire ocean, emerald forests, burnt orange sunset, and pink flowers make this tropical beauty spot one of the most photogenic destinations on the planet.

3. Rome

Throw a coin into the Trevi fountain and wish for everlasting love, walk in the gladiators’ footsteps at the Colosseum, and experience the sacred Vatican City. Rome is the must-see destination for discovering fascinating history. Don’t forget to stop for some authentic pizza on your travels - every Instagram feed needs a food shot!

4. Alaska

Is it a wonder that Alaska is one of the most Instagrammed spots in the world? The luscious green forests nestled between looming snow-capped mountains make a spectacular backdrop to any photoshoot. In Alaska, be at one with nature when you go whale watching, see grizzly bears out in the wild, and devour salmon grilled over open flames in the great outdoors.

5. Athens

The capital city of one of the oldest countries in modern civilisation, Athens is a spectacular sight to behold. The brightly coloured flea markets are great places to snap some holiday shots, and pick up souvenirs. This city is designed to be explored. It’s a wonderful place to uncover ancient history that’s completely unique to Athens.

6. Venice

Of course, the classic thing to do in Venice is ride a gondola, but don’t think that that’s all this intriguing city has to offer. Discover the art of glass blowing on the island of Murano, and maybe even have a go yourself! But, it’s not just the art of glass making that Venice is famous for. See works by Picasso, Klee, Duchamp and many more at Palazzo Venier dei Leoni. Maybe these paintings will give you some inspiration for your next Instagram shot, and with Venice as your subject, with its famously beautiful natural light, you won’t struggle to snap your own masterpiece!

7. Thailand

For a truly enlightening experience, Thailand is one of the most beautiful places you can visit. Discover a state of zen when you relax on the picture-perfect beaches, or reenergize your soul and investigate all the bright and wonderful things the city has to offer. No matter where you go, the Thai scenery will leave you breathless.

8. Santorini

Santorini is famed for its gleaming white houses, domed blue roofs, sparkling ocean, and narrow, high steps that lead you up to fantastic views. It’s no wonder this destination makes for such a great Instagram shot. When you visit make sure you treat yourself to traditional meze, and explore the famous coves, as well as the towns.

9. Labadee

On the beach of Haiti, Labadee is the place to go for every type of holidaymaker. Whether you like high energy activities (would you rather whiz on a zip-line or a rollercoaster?), or just crave some time relaxing on the beautiful beach, you’ll feel right at home at Labadee. With soft sand and a cloudless blue sky, your friends will definitely be jealous of your beach snaps!
So, which destination will you and your Instagram account head to next? Beautiful beaches or manic metropolises? We can’t wait to see the photos!
