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.

Here is the full list of our top 20 list.

Great Service. Would Use Again.

My Baggage doesn't deliver the baggage (DHL does) so not going to rate them on that. They do organize and have an easy to use and functional website that takes care of the admin side. And when there were changes that required customer support, they were quick and easy to respond/work with. Would use them again.

Super Quick..Luggage arrived within 5 days

Travelling made easy with less luggage to carry. I recently re-located to Sydney and of course did not want to carry 2 heavy suitcases with multiple flights through Asia. The experience MyBaggage provided was effortless and quick. My luggage arrived within 5 days and was delivered straight to my door. I even had to change my address and the DHL delivery guy was so accommodating, there was no hassle. The user experience on the website was so easy to use and detailed all the instructions very clearly. I'm not usually one to write a review, but with this experience, I can't wait to use again.

My experience with My Baggage was excellent.

Pick up and delivery went very smoothly and the package was delivered in good condition with no breakage or damage. As a first time international shipper I had many questions, all of which were answered quickly and helpfully by at least four different people in customer service.
