Study Reveals The 15 Most Instagrammed Destinations In The World

Despite their roaring popularity on social media, these well-trodden spots haven’t lost their charm (or their ability to pull in likes).

Thousands upon thousands of snap-happy travellers have shared their #beachvibes, #sunsets, and #wanderlust on Instagram. The app is our go-to place for planning holidays and making friends jealous of our jet-setting, and we’re never short of inspiration.

Sometimes we’re in the mood to get away from it all, but when we’re looking for a quick digital ego boost, capturing a selfie in an Insta-famous location is sure to do the trick. These well-trodden spots are immortalised on countless social media accounts across the globe, yet they haven’t lost their charm (or their ability to pull in likes).
