At the main entrance, look up and you’ll find a ceiling covered in floating multi-coloured umbrellas. Make sure you get a photo from above and below. Find your way to the Souk Dome to discover the 80-foot dinosaur skeleton, Dubai Dino. If that wasn’t enough, head to the aquarium and underwater zoo for selfies with sharks.
Lake Rotoiti, New Zealand
If you’re a fan of the wanderlust hashtag, this one’s for you. Located in the Tasman region of New Zealand, it’s all about the breath-taking view. This deep mountain lake is surrounded by endless green forest, which is the perfect backdrop for a photograph at the end of the wooden bridge.
Rainbow Village, Taiwan
Taiwan is home to small veterans’ villages which were given to retired soldiers after defending their city of Taichung. Many of these villages have since been demolished and rebuilt, but this village of just four houses is special. The last resident, Mr Huang, decided to paint the houses – using bright colours to paint vivid animals, characters and patterns. Now aptly named Rainbow Village with Mr Huang nicknamed Rainbow Grandpa, it’s become a tiny hotspot for travellers to get great snaps.
Where to stay: Millennium Hotel Taichung
Walt Disney Concert Hall, LA
You don’t have to love Mozart to enjoy this looming steel concert hall in downtown Los Angeles. Designed by architect Frank Gehry, it’s one of the more well-known destinations on our list, but that doesn’t make it any less worthy for your Instagram. The huge silver curves of the building create angles, shadows and reflections that are perfect to play around with in your shots.
