Most Instagrammed tourist spots

The Covid pandemic has brought about a new appreciation for travel. With various worldwide lockdowns bringing a halt to many holidays for Brits, a strong feeling of wanderlust is creeping in, with many of us eager to pack our bags and head to the next bucket-list destination.

Naturally, with Instagram becoming the new photo album for travellers, many draw travel inspiration from this social platform. We are in lockdown inside our homes, where we are using our phones more, and social media and digital usage has increased in the past year. 2020 has truly been a digital year as accessibility has improved and our desired holiday destination is just a click away. 

With more than 95 million photos uploaded on Instagram daily, our new research looks at the overall number of hashtags for tourist attractions.

The Maldives currently boasts 8.8 million hashtags and images uploaded to the photo-sharing website – more than any other tourist destination or attraction around the globe. 

France’s Eiffel Tower scooped second place, with 6.5 million photos shared on Instagram with the attraction’s hashtag, followed by Times Square in New York with 4.4 million images.

With limited options available for holidaying amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, the Maldives has become the destination of choice for many, including influencers. 

While many holidaymakers decided to go on a staycation within the country, the Instagram profiles of many celebrities were filled with photos from their vacation in the Maldives, putting the island nation in the spotlight.

Closer to home in the UK, in our list of 20 must-visit tourist attractions, London offers some Instagrammable tourist hotspots. With Big Ben in sixth place with 3 million hashtags, followed by Tower Bridge in ninth place with 2.4 million and then Hyde Park in tenth place with 2.2 million hashtags.

Have used MyBaggage twice and will continue to use them in the future. The customer service team are super helpful and I had two bags collected from very remote locations and both processes ran smoothly. The bags are fully tracked and both arrived securely and signed for. Five stars!

A painful reminder

While I'm grateful I found the service and grateful for whatever help they actually provided, the reality is that DHL did all the actual work and that the only reason I needed to use a service like My Baggage was because Thai Airways wanted to charge me $1500 dollars to add a second suitecase to my flight. In the end it cost me $500 dollars to ship my suitcase to a new location plus the time I lost organizing my belongings so that I would have what I needed until my second suitecase arrived plus the time I spent finding the service and filling out documents, etc. So while I am relatively grateful, it's a painful reminder of a bad experience overall. Super stressful. I hope you'll never need to use their service.

Mostly everything went well

Everything went well. The only issue was that DHL didn't pick up the bags when we understood they were going to. It was very difficult to contact them. However when My Baggage was contacted they got onto it right away. Relieved my stress for sure.

Everything went as planned

Everything went as planned. I am happy that my daughter received her parcels at the University of Bath as planned before she arrives. The cost of this services was very affordable and I will use them again.

Grateful

This ended up being a blessing in disguise for our travel. We had all 3 of our flights rescheduled the day of international travel, had we not shipped our bags, we would be embarking on a 30 day journey with no luggage. The only comment non positive was the inability to definitely pinpoint the time of pickup.
