These are the 16 most Instagrammed places across the world for 2016


You’re not the only one who likes to document their vacations and staycations on Instagram! In fact, geotagging is so popular that it’s prompted the photo sharing app company to release a list of their most Instagrammed destinations. You’ve probably seen some of these spots through a hazy sepia filter or the list is practically a compilation of beautiful must-visit destinations that should be on your travel bucket list. From Spanish cities to fantastical theme parks, this list has everything a traveller could want!

16. Barcelona center
Barcelona’s fabulous architecture forms the very photogenic backdrop to a number of pictures taken in the capital of Catalonia.


15. Tower Bridge
Few things are as quintessentially British as the historic Tower Bridge of London. Whether as part of the city skyline or by itself against a lovely sunset, this bridge is a mainstay on Instagram.


14. Los Angeles International Airport (LAX)
We didn’t think LAX would make it to this list, but perhaps loads pf pre-departure selfies (and probably some celeb photos) put this airport on the Instagram map.


13. Madison Square Garden
Now this is a more predictably entry. The popular New York location is not only a huge event venue but also celeb-spotting paradise.


12. Colosseum
Rome’s Colosseum is the largest amphitheatre ever built and with its familiar shape and silhouette it’s a perfectly instagrammable tourist hub.

7. Las Vegas Strip
Did you think people only go to Vegas to have Hangover-esque shenanigans? The neon strip with its OTT lights and wild energy has been a faithful constant in Insta pics for ages!


6. Louvre Museum
It can’t get any more French than the Louvre! Whether it’s the architecture you admire or the art inside, it can be hard to take a single step without wanting to snap a picture of something!


5. Eiffel Tower
The Eiffel tower has been a classic symbol of romance for years and years and this year it has the distinction of being the most-Instagrammed single location outside the United States this year.


4. Times Square
The giant signs, the screens and the crowds all make this New York landmark totally iconic. When in New York you have to celebrate New Year’s here in true East coast style!

3. Central Park
The city’s most famous Central Park takes the third spot thanks to its massive popularity with Insta-happy photographers.


2. Universal Studios Properties
This collection of theme parks gets a huge number of visitors each year and with a wide array of sights and sounds on offer, it’s not surprising at all that the Universal Studios attractions are a staple of Instagram pictures.

If Disneyland is the happiest place on earth then surely everybody loves saying cheese while they’re there! Disney now has theme parks across a range of destinations, but the ones in California and Florida are also the most Instagrammed spots in those states.
