Instagram’s most popular cities, locations and hashtags of 2017

What is the point of travelling the world if you can’t share it – or boast about it- with desk-bound friends back home?

Instagram, the popular photo-sharing platform, has become a fan favourite among travellers, who often post wanderlust-inducing photos from their worldly adventures to remind loved ones they’re on vacation – and very #happy about it.

The app recently released its year-in-review data, which included, among other stats, the most photographed cities, locations and museums, based on geotagged data, of 2017. Instagram’s data team also highlighted the top hashtags and filters used by its global community of 800 million users this past year.

The Big Apple and the House of Mouse took the top slots for most photographed city and location, respectfully, while Paris’s Louvre Museum was the most Instagrammed museum worldwide (no doubt thanks to tourists’ countless selfies with the “Mona Lisa”).

Here are a few of the site’s top lists:

Top Shot: Adagio | Photograph by David Bouscarle (@davidbouscarle) . “I woke up very early to capture the light on these beautiful mountains on the Isle of Skye in Scotland; you can see the Trotternish Ridge,” writes Your Shot David Bouscarle. “I had already [visited] the day before, but I had no chance. This time, the weather was very lenient. I used a telephoto lens, and some graduated neutral density and polarized filters to increase the contrast.” This image was selected for the December 1, 2017 Daily Dozen by Your Shot producer Matt Adams (@themattadams). — Top Shot features the photo with the most votes from the previous day’s Daily Dozen, 12 photos chosen by the Your Shot editors from thousands of recent uploads.
