In Asia, the most popular Instagram destination is Jakarta, which came in sixth place globally, according to research by airport bus company Hoppa. 

People would go to great lengths just for a great Insta pic these days, so if a destination has the credentials of being “Instagrammable”, it would almost certainly appeal to a large group of travellers.

In Asia, the most popular Instagram destination is Jakarta, which came in sixth place globally, according to research by airport bus company Hoppa. 

This is followed by Tokyo, Singapore and Hong Kong.
