Some people just can’t live without social media nowadays, especially Instagram. So, it’s no surprise that they’re constantly documenting what they’re eating or where they are going every day.
As a Malaysian, we’re proud of the amazing plethora of food our country has to offer, as well as the breathtaking sceneries places we have which are all definitely Instagram-worthy material.
But have you ever wondered where does Malaysia stand in the eyes of the world on the Instagram platform?
According to a study on ‘The Top 50 Most Instagrammed Destinations in the World
’ by Hoppa, Kuala Lumpur ranked 39. Leading the list this year is London, followed by Paris and New York.
But if you take into account the Instagram categories, we are ranked top 10 in two categories that we excel at – food and scenery
Kuala Lumpur placed fourth
in the scenery category behind Santiago, Bueno Aires, and Kiev.
In the food category, we placed seventh
, just ahead of Singapore, Abu Dhabi, and Melbourne. Tokyo topped the list.
Other categories in the study include selfies, sexually suggestive posts (umm, what?), and couples.
The research is conducted based on the number of posts published on Instagram from March 2018 to March 2019 which contains popular hashtags from various destinations.
Well, who knows that next year we can improve our ranking especially in the food category considering the number of yummy and Insta-worthy food from various cultures we have to offer.
