Most Instagrammed Tourist Attractions

At TravelBird, we love inspiring our travellers to seek out new adventures and create memories that can be shared with friends and family. Many people, especially those in the Millennial demographic, use Instagram to both seek and share #wanderlust #inspo. Hashtags are used not only to document journeys, but to make it easier for those interested to find content they love.

Instagram is a barometer of where Millennials are travelling to. By using common hashtags of popular sights, monuments and attractions, we created a rank of the most hashtagged destinations in the UK and around the world.

Below you will find the top two destinations in each region of the UK and below that a worldwide table of the most hashtagged destinations.

1. For the following countries; USA, Denmark, Sweden, Belgium, Switzerland, Netherlands, Austria, Norway, UK, Finland, Germany; two of the most popular destinations in each region were sourced.

2. Using the Instagram API, we then looked at which destinations produced the most hashtags in the local language, as well as their translations into English and other languages we could master, and related hashtags. For example, when looking for #Disneyland, related hashtags which were also searched for include: #TheHappiestPlaceOnEarth #disneylandpark and so on. However, we excluded results from tags such as #Disney or #Anaheim because while they are related, they may not refer to the specific location of interest. We used the sum of these searches as the number presented in our results.

3. We then added the tags together. The number of tags is a sum of all of this values.

4. The average age of Instagram users comes from a report of the PEW Research Center on Mobile Messaging and Social Media 2015: http://www.pewinternet.org/2015/08/19/mobile-messaging-and-social-media-2015/

5. The country-specific inbound tourism stats correspond to combined data from the UNWTO and the OECD. For more information visit: http://www.e-unwto.org/ and http://stats.oecd.org/

6. Wrongly spelt hashtagged destinations were not taken into account.

7. For several attractions we only counted one tag per user. Multiple tags by the same user were not counted as individual tags.

*Yellowstone National Park appears twice as the area it covers lies in two states.
