The Most Instagrammable Landmarks in the World

Machu Pichu

When we head off on holiday, many of us love just switching off and spending some time away from our mobile phones and computers. However, for others it's an opportunity to do the exact opposite!

A study found that millennials take the 'Instagramability' (yes, we know it's not a word) of a location in to account more than any other factor when choosing a holiday destination. With that in mind, we decided to take a look at the most Instagrammable (again, not a word) landmarks around the world to help you get you Insta as on point as possible. If that's the kind of thing you're into.

Take a look at the infographic below to see the most Insta worthy places on the planet by the number of hashtags for each location.

New York's famous landmarks dominate the list, but there are a few surprises in there. For example, we'd expect the Empire State Building to have been higher, and we weren't expecting the London Eye to outrank the likes of the Coliseum and Statue of Liberty.

Also, we know that we've used a picture of Tower Bridge instead of actual London Bridge, but no one on Instagram seems to know the difference and it's actually Tower Bridge they're snapping!
