TAIPEI (The China Post) — International travel website “Big Seven Travel” recently announced the “50 Most Instagrammable Places in the World 2021” list, among which Taiwan nabbed the No. 17 spot.
According to the website, this was due to Taiwan’s “culture and color” while tourist destinations such as Taipei’s National Palace Museum and Chiayi’s Alishan Mountain boosted its ranking as well.
The website claimed that the COVID-19 pandemic has led many to show a “greater appreciation” for travel. On their third annual list of Instagrammable places, Big Seven Travel scored and analyzed the “amount of hashtags received per destination,” “survey results from the social audience” and the editorial team’s input which culminated in the new list.
Leaping from No. 32 to 17, Taiwan was praised by the travel website as it claimed, “From the National Palace Museum in Taipei’s bustling capital to the hidden tea houses hidden deep within the rural jungles, there’s plenty of allure for an Instagrammer in Taiwan. “
“The country as a whole is loaded with culture and color perfect for your followers,” it continued.
In addition, the website added that “in Taiwan, you’ll find loads of metropolitan wonders like the MRT station in Kaoshiung and in the countryside, you’ll be met with even more beauty such as a sunrise at Alishan.”
The top three Instagrammable destinations of this year were given to Japan (No.1), the Philippines (No.2) and France (No.3).
