Travel publication Big 7 Travel revealed its 2020 list of the “Most Instagrammable Places in the World”. Cities in Southeast Asia, namely Singapore, Bali (Indonesia), and Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) made it to the top 20, ranking 5th, 8th, and 14th respectively.
The destinations are ranked in order of their visual allure and popularity on social media.
To compile the list, Big 7 Travel selected the winners by analyzing the amount of hashtags per destination, surveying the publication's 1.5 million readers and conducting a vote among a panel of travel experts.
“These are the places where you'll find sweeping stretches of coastline, historical monuments, kitsch cocktail bars and more street art than you can possibly imagine,” said Sarah Clayton-Lea, Big 7 Travel’s head of content, in a statement as quoted by The Jakarta Post.
Singapore was described as “a serious hub for travel in Asia” with “colourful buildings, futuristic bridges, and ‘a cloud forest’”, while Bali was described as “paradise” with white sandy beaches, waterfalls, cute swings and floating breakfast.
