If you are currently planning your trips for this year, here are eight destinations to visit for a perfect Instagram page that will surely spice up your account and attract more followers.
1. The Maldives
The island nation of the Maldives is no doubt the most ideal place to flex your lifestyle and all its luxuries. The Maldives is a breathtaking island chain with perfectly planned and contrived resort options and UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
With its exciting plethora of sights and locations, nothing can beat the Maldives if you are looking for spots to snap your profile photo for Instagram and show the rest of the world how you enjoy life and its finer things.
Waldorf Astoria has an Itaafushi property where you can take photos on the beach, in your overwater bungalow, or on a boat as you explore the sparkling royal blue and sea-green waters.
2. Bora Bora, French Polynesia
Many people dream about going on a vacation to Bora Bora, and no one can blame them. The volcanic island located in French Polynesia, an archipelago of the Society Islands, is filled with valleys that blossom with hibiscus, verdant tropical slopes, and white sandy beaches complemented by emerald waters with corals and colorful fish swimming around them. You might even see some giant manta rays up close if you are lucky.
Bora Bora is a true paradise for all the romantics out there, thanks to the luxury spas and resorts dotting the island that offer amazing overwater villas. A coral reef-protected turquoise lagoon and sand-fringed islets, or Motu, surround Bora Bora, known for its exceptional scuba diving and snorkeling opportunities.
3. Tulum, Mexico
Tulum never disappoints, whether you just want to take some snaps for the ‘gram or you have always wanted to visit one of the Seven Wonders of the World. The place boasts clear blue waters, gorgeous white sand beaches, eco-friendly views, jungle-surrounded swimming pools, and ancient ruins, all of which can be enjoyed with some tequila shots on the side.
Don’t miss the chance to take some photos with the ancient Mayan ruins in the background. Grab some refreshing drinks at the enchanting cocktail bars in Tulum. Soak under the sun in a resort and let your skin get a lovely bronze tinge.
4. New Zealand
Almost everyone’s bucket list includes New Zealand for a reason. It is one of the world’s most beautiful destinations that remains almost untouched to this day. Its population density is relatively small compared to its sprawling ecosystem of beautiful wilderness.
New Zealand’s popularity as a tourist destination skyrocketed after it was chosen as the setting for the visually stunning Hobbit and Lord of the Rings trilogy films.
With New Zealand offering extreme diversity when it comes to natural beauty, you can look forward to capturing all kinds of Instagram snaps you have always dreamed of. The country has got you covered, whether you are into the sighting of rare wild animals, trekking in the wilderness, hiking majestic mountains, or simply enjoying serene island life.
5. Ghent, Belgium
While Ghent may be unheard of for most people, taking a day trip to the area is one of the things you shouldn’t miss doing if you are in Belgium.
The port city used to be a prominent city-state during the Middle Ages and has now become a cultural hub and university town.
Medieval architecture dots its pedestrianized center, including the 12th-century Gravensteen Castle as well as the Graslei, which is a row of guildhalls located near the Leie river harbor.
While the small size of Ghent gives the area a cozy feel, it is still large enough to be vibrant. Unlike most of the cities in Europe, there are no crowds of tourists here. However, with several good museums, a selection of quirky bars, and gorgeous canal-side architecture, Ghent is a city you wouldn’t want to miss during your Belgium trip.
6. The Islands of Greece
Many people fall in love with Santorini Island’s romantic sights, often featured in the movies. However, it is just one of the numerous jaw-dropping islands of Greece that will surely take your Instagram to a whole new level.
Greek islands are famous for their exceptional combination of offerings that are a joy to behold. These include whitewashed villages, verdant forests, interesting animal life, serene lakes, lush valleys, towering cliffs, pristine beaches with crystal-clear waters, inky waters, and rugged mountains.
Going on boat and yacht cruises is the perfect way to visit these beautiful Greek islands. The cute villages and white cliffs of Milos, in particular, are some of the most Instagrammable spots you need to check out.
Venice is one of the world’s most romantic cities. Rather than streets crisscrossing the area, a series of canals is what the Venetians use to move around the city.
Unfortunately, Venice is sinking by the year as it sits below sea level. With the city’s future threatened by global warming, it gives you all the more reason to include it on your now or never list. For all you know, it might no longer be around once you have finally decided to visit.
With stunning historic architecture and a one-of-a-kind experience you won’t find anywhere else in the world, the city of Venice is where you can relax during your gondola ride while taking snaps for the ‘gram of a tradition that might soon disappear.
8. Algarve, Portugal
Stunning white beaches, caves, villages, and cliffs are some of the things you cannot help but fall in love with in the Algarve. Most of the sights and attractions in the area are also considered romantic sites for couples and lovers. The Algarve’s dazzling beaches are the perfect destination for romantic getaways.
Capture Instagram-worthy shots in the cute small villages dotting the coast, the lagoons, and the gorgeous beaches. Check out the amazing rock formations, rocky cliffs, birdlife, and, of course, the historically important landmarks such as the Sé Church and the arches.
