Hatta is one of the most instagrammed spots in the world

If you’ve been on a trip through Hatta, you’ll know just how incredible and snap-worthy its scenery is.

The popular tourist destination is ranked in the top ten most Instagrammed places in the world in terms of road trips, according to a report by UAE-based Wecashanycar.

Owned by Dubizzle, the company analysed more than 12 million Instagram posts using the hastag #road-trip and found the top 20 most Instagrammable ones. The UAE spot moved straight into the top ten.

With a total of 25,929 posts, Hatta came in seventh place, and we can see why with its rolling mountains, centuries-old Hatta Heritage Village, rock pools, Hatta Dam and Hatta Reservoir Visitor Point. It’s even better if you go kayaking.

The number on spot went to Australia's Great Ocean Road with 87,190 posts, and the US’s Route 66 in second place with 62,680 posts.

As for what places followed Hatta, Italy’s Tuscany came in eighth place with 21,277 posts followed by Sicily with 14,628 posts and Scotland’s North Coast 500, which has 12,674 posts.
