5 Of The World's Most Photogenic Locations
Thinking of exploring somewhere new this year? We've done the legwork and found you the most Instagram-worthy travel destinations:
In Ålesund, you can visit the Town Mountain and the viewpoint Aksla. From this location, there is a panoramic view of the archipelago, the beautiful town centre, and the amazing Sunnmøre Alps. Walk the 418 steps up from the Town Park, go by car or take the City Train up to Fjellstua.
Fjellstua has got an outdoor restaurant, café, and a platform to enjoy the view. To go up to Aksla you can either take the 418 steps that go up from the Town Park or you can drive Borgundfjordveien/Fjelltunveien all the way up.

La Paz, Bolivia
There are few cities with such an extraordinary setting as lofty La Paz. At 3,640 metres above sea level, Bolivia’s de facto capital has serious altitude. Only 15 minutes from La Paz lies the Devil’s Molar, yes, that means it looks like a devil’s tooth with cavities, although some would argue that it looks more like a dinosaur. No matter what you think it resembles, we can all agree that it is one crazy-looking volcano!
You can take a taxi there from La Paz and tell it to wait or go back via minibus after (until 6.30 pm). Try to go as early as possible to avoid missing the bus and hiking after sundown. El Muelle lies at 3825m above sea level and overlooks both La Paz and the Valley of the Moon. Why not make it a week away?

South Tyrol, Italy
Without a doubt, this is the most beautiful lake in the Dolomites. This turquoise lake surrounded by steep mountains is located in the nature reserve of Fanes-Sannes-Braies and has a breathtaking alpine backdrop. The area is perfect for walking or boating. Like many places here, it’s known by two names as they speak two languages in this area: Lago di Braies in Italian, and Pragser Wildsee in German. Both names are used regularly for this amazing lake in the mountain district.
It is a beautiful lake and photos of it with its boathouse on stilts and stunning backdrop of mountains have been doing the rounds on Facebook and Instagram for years. Hotels.com offer 2% in free donations when you book through Give as you Live Online!
The Sassi di Matera are two districts of the Italian city of Matera, Basilicata, well-known for their ancient cave dwellings. The "Sassi" has been described as "one of the most unique landscapes in Europe", so definitely one you'll want to include on your grid!
Matera used to be one of Italy’s most deprived cities – so lacking hope that God was said to keep well away – but in 2022 it will be the World City of Culture. It has been reported that more than 25% of the city's housing is available to rent on Airbnb, meaning a trip here won't break the bank either! You can book through Airbnb via Give as you Live Online and raise up to £43.00 for charity in the process!
Marina Bay, Singapore
This may be one of Singapore's most-photographed hotels with its instantly-recognisable triple tower design, but you won't regret a trip to the poolside bar with stunning views across the Bayzone. The infinity-edge pool stretches across the top of all 3 towers and is a must-see in the city.
There's plenty to do in the surrounding area too, with the hotel directly linked to Singapore's premier shopping mall and the ArtScience Museum, which features the incredible permanent exhibition, Future World.
