These Are The World's Most Instagram'ed Cities Of 2017

For the 'gram!

What's the point of going on an expensive holiday if you can't show off and rub it in the faces of your friends back at home, right?

The popular photo sharing app, Instagram, has given travellers an avenue to share pictures of their adventures with their loved ones, to remind them that they are enjoying their holiday while you're stuck behind your desk at work (ugh!).

The social media site, which has more than 500 million active users daily, has just released its 2017 statistics and these beautiful cities made the list of the most Instagram'ed this year:

#10 Barcelona, Spain

Home to the La Sagrada Familia and, uhh, Lionel Messi, the beautiful Catalonian city is famous for its modernist landmarks designed by world-famous architect Antoni Gaudí and several Roman archaeological sites.

#9 Istanbul, Turkey

The most populous city in Turkey, Istanbul is one of the more popular holiday destinations in the world. Its Old City boasts breath-taking landmarks influenced by the many empires that once ruled the city.

#8 Jakarta, Indonesia

When we said only one South East Asian city made the list, you thought it was Singapore, huh? Jakarta is the capital city of Indonesia and is home to many Dutch colonial buildings. We are actually surprised Bali didn't make the cut.

#7 Saint Petersburg, Russia

Saint Petersburg is known as the cultural center of Mother Russia, and these Instagram photos show! The beautiful city is home to several impressive (and of course, super beautiful) landmarks, such as Church of the Savior on Blood, the Mariinsky Theatre and the iconic Bronze Horseman statue.
 

Снег тут не растаял, да и Спас во всей красе без строительных лесов. Поэтому быть этому архивному фото в ленте. ✔️ А вообще хочется уже нормальной зимы, чтобы снег выпал и вот такой красивой, снежной пеленой пролежало до конца февраля 😅 Мягкие зимы, конечно, мне тоже по вкусу, но с такими северными ветрами со сладостью вспоминаешь зимы сухие, южные, сибирские. А какая зима вам больше по душе? ❄️☃️❄️ #bЕgООd

#6 Los Angeles, California

Ah, the land where all your dreams come true. With its always-nice weather, countless surf beaches, iconic landmarks and endless celebrity sightings, it's really not a surprise that L.A. is one of the top Instagram'ed cities this year.
 

Until you take a chance in life you'll never really know who you are

#5 Paris, France

There's no way Paris is not in the list, right? The City Of Love is one of the most visited and Instagram'ed cities this year, thanks to its 19th century cityscape which boasts landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower and the Gothic Notre-Dame cathedral. Oh Paris, we're in love!

#4 Sao Paulo, Brazil

Sao Paulo is the only South American country to make the list, and we can see why. One of the most populous countries in the world, Sao Paulo boasts a rich architectural tradition. The São Paulo Cathedral is truly a sight to behold.

#3 London, United Kingdom

The land of Prince Harry and double decker busses cracks top three in the list. We are pretty sure the 'Big Ben', the Buckingham Palace, the Tower Of London and the London Eye are permanent fixtures in your Instagram feed.
 
 

讓生活越來越好的, 不會是某個瞬間, 而是蟄伏在平淡中的每一個日常。 ✣✣✣ 不要等中樂透的時候, 不要等成功的時候, 不要等身強體壯的時候, 不要等白馬王子/真命天女出現的時候... 想做什麼就去做, 做不到, 就珍惜擁有的, 然後繼續耕耘, 因為你真正擁有的只有現在。 否定現在, 就等於持續發出負面頻率, 告訴宇宙給你更多不滿足的「現在」, 而「未來」往往是「現在」的積累。 就像人不可能一瞬間生病、不可能突然變胖, 一定是日積月累提供促成結果的條件。 難怪佛家說:「放下屠刀,立地成佛。」 重點不只是「放下」,而是「當下」。 當你準備走在善道上,我們都是未來佛。 福雖未至,禍正遠離。 #珍愛每一天 #文字 #words #positive #london #allwehaveisnow

#2 Moscow, Russia

Looks like Russia is the place to be this year, huh? The capital and most populous city of Russia is known for its magnificent, colourful, onion-shaped domes such as the Red Square and the St. Basil’s Cathedral. You better be Putin Moscow in your travel list next year.
 

Хочу новогоднее настроение в ленте 🎠 • Поймала себя на мысли о том, что у меня нет страны мечты. Ну просто нет места, от которого у меня трясутся коленки и имеется страшное желание там побывать. Мне кажется, что практически у каждого человека найдётся место, где бы он хотел побывать Но не у меня И от этого даже как-то грустно и в какой-то степени обидно, так как, да, я безумно хочу снова поехать в три долины во Францию, как в детстве. Но это - повторить то, что уже было, вспомнить сладкие моменты счастья, восстановить в памяти картинку, а не исследовать новое. И не сказать что я какой-то избалованный ребёнок, повидавший все на свете и обкатавший полмира. Нет, вовсе нет, вообще нет! На моем счету всего 19 стран, и это, поверьте, вообще не много. 1/3 Европы, Азербайджан, Израиль, да и Египет, вот и все (подсчитать все можно в приложении Been) И вот я сижу и понимаю, что хочу увидеть огромное количество стран, но одной определенной нет ☹️ А у вас?

#1 New York City, New York

Well, the Big Apple is the big winner this year. The home of the Empire State Building, the Central Park, the Statue of Liberty and popular YouTuber Casey Neistat tops the list of the most Instagram'ed city this year, and we can't argue that because look at these pictures:
