Around two years back I figured that it would be fun to share some of my travel photos on Instagram.
Besides sharing photos on Instagram, the site is a great place to see other people’s awesome photos. One of my favorite accounts is @paperboyo. I think that you really NEED to see his photos.
In October I was happily surprised to receive 10,000 Club Carlson points for this photo.
With millions of photos being posted each day, you might wonder, what city is the most Instagrammed?
If I had to make a guess off the top of my head, I’d probably guess a place like Paris or Las Vegas.
Conde Naste Traveler had an article with the 10 Most Instagrammed Cities of 2017.
I was definitely curious to find out which city took the top spot.
Here are the Top 10 Instagrammed Cities for 2017:
- New York, NY (for the second year in a row)
- Moscow, Russia
- London, UK
- Sao Paulo, Brazil
- Paris, France
- Los Angeles, California
- Saint Petersburg, Russia
- Jakarta, Indonesia
- Istanbul, Turkey
- Barcelona, Spain
I should’ve picked my home city of NY for the top spot but I think the lights of Las Vegas blurred my vision. The city didn’t crack the Top 10 list. My guess of Paris was more on point, coming in at #5.
I was surprised to see Jakarta make the list and it was interesting that the two countries to have two cities in the top 10 were the U.S. and Russia.
On a personal note, the only city in the top 10 which I’ve yet to visit is Jakarta, Indonesia.
What do you think about the most Instagrammed cities of 2017? Did any of them surprise you? Were you surprised not to see any particular city on this list?
