When I installed Instagram on my iPhone for the first time, I thought it is just another photo editing app with awesome filters. But later on, I realized that it’s actually an amazing photo sharing application and since then I got hooked. Instagram, with no doubt fueled my lust for travel and it helped me discover destinations that were off my radar. I made a list of some of Instagram worthy destinations that I personally visited and discovered through Instagram.

1. Ninh Binh, Vietnam

Ninh Binh is just two hours away from Hanoi and conveniently reachable by public bus. Climb your way on top of the Hang Mua hill for the best views of the limestone mountains similar to Ha Long Bay, only inland.

Beautiful and underrated. Dubbed as the inland Halong Bay. #ninhbinh #hangmua #tamcoc #vietnam #travel

2. Cappadocia, Turkey

Cappadocia is an all season tourist destination and one of the most beautiful Instagram worthy destinations. Its out of this world beauty and topography is often described as moon-like or from a different planet. Riding a hot air balloon is a must!

3. Guilin, China

This humble county in China boasts heaven on earth beauty of Karst mountains that cuts through its mighty rivers. Head early before the sun rises in Xianggong hill to see the best panoramic views of this paradise.

4. Koh Tao, Thailand

Koh Tao is a popular diving destination in Thailand. However, for non-divers the island has plenty to offer. Take a short boat ride to the nearby Koh Nyan Guan and climb the hills to catch this amazing view.

5. Mount Bromo, Indonesia

The sunrise view from Mount Bromo in Indonesia is one for the books. It’s easy reachable by 4×4 vehicles and one of easiest hikes I’ve ever done.

6. Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland

This beautiful valley in Switzerland boasts several waterfalls and amazing views of the Swiss Alps. It’s a popular destination for base jumpers and other adventures for adrenaline junkies out there. This is among the best Instagram worthy destinations that offers limitless photo opportunity due to it’s massive and diverse natural beauty.

7. Luang Prabang, Laos

This Unesco Heritage Site by the mighty Mekong River is among the best places to ride a bicycle while exploring around its french colonial architecture that harmoniously blends with its colorful Buddhist temples. Take a tuktuk and make your way to Kuang Si Waterfalls to get a feel of Laos’ untouched nature.

9. Zakynthos, Greece

Truly an Instagram worthy destination, Zakynthos is gifted with many beautiful beaches surrounded by blue waters of the Ionian sea. The most popular and one of the most photograph beaches is Navagio (Shipwreck) Beach. The only way to go to the beach is to take a boat from the port. The beach has been popularized by the Korean drama, Descendants of the Sun.

10. Riga, Latvia

This capital of Latvia is the biggest city among the Baltic States that were previously under the Soviet Union. A lively city with an amazing architecture.

11. Chiang Mai, Thailand

Do not miss the Yi Peng festival which takes place annually around October or November following the Buddhist calendar. Visit the elephant sanctuary and learn how Chiang Mai is doing a good job in taking care of these gentle giants.

12. Tbilisi, Georgia

A beautiful city at the eastern most side of Europe bordering with Russia, Turkey and Armenia. The cobblestoned old town reflects a long history, with periods under Persian and Russian rule. Its diverse architecture encompasses Eastern Orthodox churches, ornate art nouveau buildings and Soviet Modernist structures.
