Instagram has revealed which cities, hotels, museums and even hashtags proved most popular among its users in 2017.

Social media plays an increasingly important role in travel, a 2016 study revealing how flaunting is part of the millennial holiday experience. It therefore makes sense that one-fifth of millennials (British) are motivated to choose a holiday destination based on how ‘Instagrammable’ it is.

Earlier this year Jeremy Jauncey, founder of Beautiful Destinations, gave Culture Trip readers some tips on growing an Instagram community and how the future of travel on social media hinges on video and storytelling. Here’s Instagram’s most shared destinations in 2017.
