Travel is a great way to learn and gain new experiences. It can also enable you to amass an impressive collection of photos along the way. Here are 10 iconic travel destinations on Instagram and some pointers on how to get the perfect shot.
Brooklyn Bridge, New York City, USA
For the iconic shot of the bridge flanked by brownstone buildings on either side, venture to the corner of Washington and Water Streets in Dumbo, Brooklyn. Avoid rush hour and be careful of traffic.
Pyramids of Giza, Egypt
The best time to visit is when the complex opens at 8 am to avoid the crowds, harsh sunlight and heat.
Eiffel Tower, Paris, France
Popular places to take photos of the Eiffel Tower are on the Banks of the River Seine or at Place du Trocadéro.
For a sweeping view of the hot air balloons over the valley, head to none other than the Panoramic Viewpoint in Göreme.
Sydney Opera House, Australia
At Mrs Macquarie’s Point you can get a view of both the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Antelope Canyon, Arizona, USA
You’ll have a choice of visiting either the Lower Canyon or Upper Canyon. As both are situated on Navajo Nation tribal land, you’ll need to book onto a tour because there are no self-guided options.
Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia
The world’s biggest salt flat spans for hundreds of miles. Devoid of hardly any features, it makes for the perfect backdrop to create optical illusions and play with perspective. Grab some mates and get creative.
Lake Bled, Slovenia
The waterside boardwalk is great to capture shots of Bled Island. Whereas for an aerial shot,try the Mala Osojnica viewpoint or Bled Castle.
Head to Oia for the famous Blue Domes of Santorini
Rice Terraces, Bali
The most iconic is the Tegalalang Rice Terrace, a short distance from Ubud.
