When it comes to booking potential travel destinations, it seems Instagram has got itself some pretty significant pull. In fact, a study by Tourism Management earlier this year found two-fifths of millennials choose a travel spot based on its “Instagrammability” – that’s almost half the millennial population.
Another trend that’s been having significant pull in 2018 is our growing appetite for exploring off-beat travel locations. While the Eiffel Tower and Positano beachfront will continue to flood IG feeds – people are now starting to look further afield when it comes to travel opportunities.
To find out which destinations are high on the list in 2018, Carphone Warehouse recently held a new study calling on users to rank the most beautiful, disconnected locations in the world. The study found the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador came in first as the number one “Most Instagrammable Location”, while one of the world’s most pristine and least-visited island groups in the world, Marovo Lagoon in the Solomon Islands, came in second place.
Below, we take a look at which destinations were voted in as 2018’s top 10 most Instagrammable off-beat locations in the world.
1. Galapagos Islands, Ecuador
