If you didn’t know it already, Instagram is quickly closing in on Facebook as the main social media platform on which people share photos of their travels and daily shenanigans.
The pic-centric mobile app has just released figures on what iconic spots on Planet Earth are the most tagged in Instagram posts and it probably comes as no surprise that there’s a place in Dubai that’s made the top 20 list.
The Dubai Mall, the world’s biggest shopping centre, can now proudly claim a spot among the world’s Instagram elite. Hip hip hurray! Here’s the full list!
1. New York’s Times Square
2. Paris’s Eiffel Tower
3. London’s Tower Bridge
4. Moscow’s Red Square
5. Los Angeles’s Dodger Stadium
6. Istanbul’s İstiklal Avenue
7. Sao Paolo’s Parque Ibirapuera
8. Amsterdam’s Vondelpark
9. Barcelona’s Park Güell
10. San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge
