Instagrammers across the world upload countless pictures of stunning locations almost every day. But which destinations among these are the most popular? Read along as Sarah Merchant tells you exactly that!
Gone are the days when people clicked photos for Facebook. It’s the decade of Valencia, Walden, X-Pro and “who has more followers”. So, it’s only sensible that we list out the top 10 Instagrammed places in the world. This list has been drawn on the basis of the geo-tagging feature used by Instagram users.
Here’s a look at the places most visited by Instagrammers ……
1. Disneyland, Anaheim, CA
Built under the direct supervision of Walt Disney, this park serves as an entertainment paradise for kids and adults alike. The castles, the princesses and the rides transport you to a different world altogether. No wonder, it stands at the top of the list.
2. Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles
Dodger Stadium may not have appeared on TV as many times as it has on Instagram! Third oldest ballpark in Major League Baseball, the Dodger Stadium is the home ballpark of Los Angeles Dodgers.
3. Times Square, New York
Images of colourful lights from the electronic billboards reflecting on the faces in the crowd is shown quite often on TV. That is Times Square! Standing third in the list, the center of New York is on everyone’s travel wish-list.
4. Siam Paragon shopping mall, Bangkok, Thailand
You may wonder why a shopping mall is all over Instagram, but Siam Paragon is different! Easily one of the largest malls in Asia, it comes equipped with a movie theater (large enough to accommodate 15 screens), an aquarium (the largest aquarium in South East Asia), an exhibition hall, an art gallery, an opera concert hall, a large bowling alley and a karaoke center, pheeww! Siam Paragon stands proudly on number 4!
5. Gorky Park, Moscow, Russia
Gorky Park named after Maxim Gorky opened all the way back in 1928. This amusement park covers an area of 300 acres and has a river inside it. Since its opening, Gorky Park has made appearances in books, movies, video games and now of course, Instagram.
6. Musée du Louvre, Paris, France
Paris + historic castle/fortress converted into a museum + River Seine = the perfect recipe for making any location photogenic! Still got any questions why Musée du Louvre stands 6th on the list?
7. Red Square, Moscow, Russia
Red Square is one of the prettiest town squares you will ever see! Fountains, statues, castle-like buildings form the Red Square. No matter what the season is, Red Square never fails to enchant its visitors.
8. Madison Square Garden, New York
Every performer/musician’s ultimate dream! This multi-purpose indoor arena in Midtown Manhattan is used for professional basketball, ice hockey, boxing, concerts, ice shows, circuses, and other sports and entertainment events. With concerts and games happening here every week, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out how Madison Square Garden ended up on this list.
9. Yankee Stadium, New York
Considering Baseball is a religion to Americans, it would have been surprising if the home ballpark for the New York Yankees of Major League Baseball didn’t show up on the Instagram list. This stadium also serves as a home ground of New York City FC of Major League Soccer.
PS: New York City FC is Frank Lampard’s and David Villa’s official club.
10. The Dubai Mall, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
If you haven’t heard about the malls in Dubai there are high chances you live under a rock. The Dubai Mall is the world’s largest mall with over 1,200 stores, an ice rink and an aquarium. Out of the million pictures or so more than half are clicked at this mall!
