In need of some travel inspiration? Joyce Khoh shares the top travel Instagram accounts we should all follow right now.


Being an avid social media user myself, I rely on Instagram quite a bit (or a lot) to fuel my wanderlust – especially when I’m stuck at university or too broke to travel.

Personally, I feel that there’s so much one can take away from Instagram – by following these Travel Instagram accounts, you get new insights about places you’ve never even heard of and what they look like, which could help you plan your next trip.

Even though there are thousands of travel Instagram accounts out there, what I look for in deciding which accounts to follow is how interesting/beautiful the pictures are, the photography skill/photo quality and how captivating the stories they tell are.

In no particular order, here goes:

National Geographic Travel (@natgeotravel)

This is probably one of the most famous travel Instagram accounts out there, due to National Geographic being such an accomplished magazine. It features posts from various photographers and features cultures all over the world – making it extremely diverse and interesting.

Dylan Furst (@fursty)

An outdoor, adventure and lifestyle photographer who features mostly landscapes and his road trips.

Daniel Kordan (@danielkordan)

A landscape photographer who photographs mostly nature, he features places such as Greenland and Antarctica, which are less commonly travelled to.

City Best Views (@citybestviews)

As its name suggests, it features stunning city views from all around the world. Great for planning for your next Uni break!

Steve Mccurry (@stevemccurryofficial)

Another of my personal favourites, Steve’s a well-acclaimed photographer who photographs and tell stories about people from all around the world – his works usually span conflicts, vanishing cultures, ancient traditions and contemporary cultures alike – yet they always retain the human element.

John Wingfield and his dog, Millie (@johnwingfield, @milliethegolden)

Similar to Dylan and Mason, John’s a landscape photographer who goes on many road trips with his cute dog, Millie (who has an Instagram account too). For all dog-lovers out there, this is for you! His works are stunning and beautifully capture the great outdoors.

Just a girl and her stick.

What’s the story morning glory?
