When it comes to popularity on Instagram, it is not all who rule on it.
In Kenya, Instagram rules the social media sphere. Around the world, cities rule the networks or on the other hand, top destinations dominate the social sphere in a big way.
The photo-sharing app has released data for its most-Instagrammed cities and locations of 2017 and New York is ranked No1 in the city list, with Moscow coming second and London third.
New York also dominates the locations rankings, too. Disneyland, Anaheim, USA, is the most Instagrammed location of 2017, but it’s Times Square and Central Park in at second and third.
And the other top 10 locations are Tour Eiffel, Tokyo Disney Resort, Disney’s Magic Kingdom, Musee du Louvre, Brooklyn Bridge, Disney California and Las Vegas Strip.
Instagram has also released the top 10 most-Instagrammed hotels in the world, with the No1 spot taken by the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.
It’s not a surprising result given that the property boasts one of the most stunning infinity pools anywhere in the world.
The rest of the hotel top 10 is comprised of mostly Las Vegas accommodation – the Bellagio in Las Vegas, The Venetian in Las Vegas, Atlantis The Palm in Dubai, the MGM Grand Las Vegas, the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, the Wynn Las Vegas, Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Fontainebleau Miami Beach and the Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino.
The most-Instagrammed museum, meanwhile, is the Musée du Louvre in Paris, followed by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, London’s British Museum, the American Museum of Natural History in New York, the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the UK capital’s Natural History Museum and in at No10 – LA’s Museum of Ice Cream.
The most-Instagrammed National Parks in the U.S are the Grand Canyon, Yosemite and Rocky Mountain, while the most tagged geo-locations in the UK are Tower Bridge, Hyde Park and Buckingham Palace, followed by Shoreditch, Notting Hill, Covent Garden, Wembley Stadium, the London Eye, Tate Modern and the O2.
There are no surprises at all in the UK top 10 cities list, with London in at No1, Edinburgh No2 and Manchester No3. The rest of the ranking is comprised of Brighton, Birmingham, Bristol, Liverpool, Leeds, Glasgow and Cambridge.
And the most-used travel hashtag of 2017? That would be #travel.
