What better way to memorize your travels than by taking selfies and posting them on Instagram? But doing that isn’t enough. You have to visit the most Instagram-friendly destinations to make your profile stand out from the rest.
There’s a lot of debate on which destinations around the world have the most “gram appeal”. If researching isn’t your thing, then we have an article just for you. We’ve done the math and came up with the 5 most Instagram-friendly destinations to visit. With all that said, let’s start with the list.
There isn’t a more unique country in the world than Japan. Not only is the island home to some amazing destinations, but the history of some of these attractions dates back centuries.
There’s quite a lot of spots to make the perfect Instagram selfie while sightseeing in Japan. Suwa Takashima Castle is one of those. What makes this destination one of the most popular spots in the world to take a selfie is the unique way the castle is built. Namely, the castle sits on a man-made moat that used to deter invaders centuries ago.
Nowadays, travelers visit Suwa Takashima Castle because it is one of the most unique buildings in the whole of Japan. Another popular Instagramable attraction includes Kyoto’s Fushimi Inari-Taisha.
There isn’t a country more beautiful than Italy. The Mediterranean coast is particularly popular when it comes to taking Instagram selfies. More so, the coastal towns of Amalfi, Positano, and Portofino are popular wedding destinations. Apart from the beauty of the Mediterranean, the eternal city and Italy’s capital, Rome, is a must-visit destination.
The culture and history behind the many buildings and wonders of the city will make your Instagram account jaw-dropping. If you prefer to go further north, then you have to visit Milan’s Duomo di Milano. Not only is this the world’s second-largest church, but it makes for some awesome Instagram photos.
Everything about Dubai screams “big”. Dubai is home to the tallest building in the world, the biggest shopping centers, the biggest resorts, etc. The country cannot be summarized in a few Instagram photos. If you’re visiting Dubai, make sure to pack extra storage space on your smartphone or camera as you’ll be taking lots of photos.
What makes Dubai such an Instagram-friendly destination is the fact that it’s very different than the west. Influencers and celebrities cannot wait to sample the Middle Eastern culture and post photos from their travels and adventures to their Instagram profiles.
No doubt the very best destination to take a selfie while visiting Dubai is the Burj Khalifa. Sitting at a jaw-dropping altitude of 2722 feet, managing to take a photo on top of the tallest building in the world is truly something. Not many get the chance, but not many try.
If you’re particularly afraid of heights, then the Miracle Garden is a worthy substitute.
Despite India’s big cities being one of the most overpopulated places in the world, there is true and natural beauty in India. India’s countryside is home to some of the most amazing sights you’ll ever see. The lush greenery, high mountains, and colorful villages are some of the best destinations to take a selfie.
If dwelling in the big cities is your cup of tea, then you have to visit one of the many city markets. Not only will you find all kinds of strange items but you’ll also find colorful spices, trinkets, and traditional clothes. The Gateway of India is yet another high-traffic destination for Instagram selfies. The century-old monument in Mumbai is a regular feature in many celebrity Instagram shots.
What’s not to love about the Maldives? Crystal clear, turquoise waters stretching over golden sands is a clear description of paradise on Earth. Make no mistake about it, if you happened to be visiting the Maldives, then you’ll be making some of the hottest Instagram photos.
