NO.1 HALONG BAY, VIETNAM

NO.2 UBUD, BALI

BOOM you've got it. Caption 'RICE, RICE BABY ;) ' You're welcome.If you've got a little more adrenaline in your blood swing away on the famous Bali Swing. The ultimate swinging into 2021 post and a hell of a good time whilst you're at it. Filming content whilst feeling content. What a combo.
NO.3 KOH TAO, THAILAND
Forget about the busy backpacker streets full of travellers off their face, Thailand has got plenty of Insta hotspots. One of our favourites is Koh Tao so make sure you head there if you really wanna really spark up your feed. Found in the Southwest of Thailand, there is so much more to Koh Tao than just a popular diving destination. Take a sunset stroll along the beach (stop off at a few beach bars), and you might be lucky to get that golden shot.
NO.4 ANGKOR WAT, SIEM REAP
Travelling in Cambodia is like stepping back in time thanks to the insane ancient history that fills the country. In particular, Angkor Wat temple which has to be one of the top places to capture those snaps on your adventure here. It's even better when you head there for sunrise so make sure you don't have too much of a heavy one the night before cos it is so worth it. Unless you can handle your hangovers of course. If you are not an early riser then don't worry as the sunset is just as impressive. Our good friend @backpackwithme sure knows how to get a good shot here. Go check her page on Insta cos she sets the bar high.
NO.5 CHIANG MAI, THAILAND
There are so many things to do in the Chiang Mai, so make sure don't miss out on coming here. Spend a day caring for the big friendly elephant’s and get your heart pumping zip-lining through the jungle. You don't just need to travel here for the Instagram snaps, but to have fun and realise your adrenaline as well. It's a win-win.
If you are heading out in November make sure you do not miss the Yi Peng festival where the sky is lit up by lanterns. (Magical moment and especially to get those sick pics!)
NO.6 PADAR VIEWPOINT, INDONESIA
Another one of our top 10 Instagram worthy hotspots is Padar viewpoint in Indonesia. Boyyyy it's a real show-stopper to brighten up your news feed. Head off the beaten track in Indonesia to get a slightly different experience than just your everyday classic traveller to find this impressive view. It's a bit more difficult to get to but the bumpy boat rides and sweaty walks will be well worth it when you get there.
7. HOI AN, VIETNAM
Hoi An is nothing but a cute and colourful little town with so much character to it. Try not to get too tipsy on the local rice wine while you're here so you can take a cycle ride around the streets. Line your stomach with some of the local street food, and then you can get back on the drinks again. It's also quite fun to get your very own tailor-made suit or to have a traditional lantern making class if you're feelin' like doing something a bit different. Oh, and if you hadn't guessed, it's a great place to snap up some colourful pics too.
NO.8 KOH RONG SAMLOEM, CAMBODIA
Imagine waking up to the sound of waves on your own private beach and spending your days swinging in sea hammocks. Sounds bliss, right? Get yourself to Koh Rong in Cambodia and you will honestly feel like you are in paradise. The seawater is so clear if you opened your eyes underwater you'd be able to perfectly see the colourful fish everywhere, and the surrounding white sandy beaches will make your photography skills look like you're a professional. well, you can at least pretend, hey. Relax on the swings in the sea and sip on ice-cold cocktails and enjoy yooo self.
NO.9 PINK BEACH, INDONESIA
Sandy beaches are great, right? But there is something really cool about lying on a PINK beach. Maybe because it's a very rare sight, or maybe because it looks cool in a picture, but either way, Pink Beach in Indonesia looks even better in real life so you definitely won't be disappointed.
NO.10 KAWASAN WATERFALLS, PHILIPPINES
For the first time canyoners and waterfall lovers, the Kawasan Falls will be just up your street. Located in Badian, the falls are home to 3 natural waterfalls, which are found within a luscious green jungle. At 65 feet tall, canyoneering here is not for the faint-hearted, but if you’ve always wanted to cure your fear of heights, there’s no better way to do it. Or if you're like Aggie, pop on your swimsuit and hang out in the trees.
