Research has shown the people all over the world are now using Instagram to decide where they want to visit.

Nowadays, a growing number of travellers choose destinations based on the number of hashtags, selfies, food photos and other factors on the popular app.

As a result of this new trend, a foreign transport operator called Hoppa has compiled a list of the top 50 ‘Instagrammable’ destinations in the world for 2019.

This year’s list, topped by London, Paris and New York, features two cities from Africa - Lagos in Nigeria and South Africa‘s Cape Town.
