Top Instagram users – 5 city travel Instagrammers

For me, travel blogging isn’t just about writing great articles or unique tips. It’s about sharing great photos too. Instagram is my favourite way to see other people’s travel experiences and get some inspiration for my next trip. Hey – there’s a #travelporn hashtag for a reason, right?! Here are my top instagram users who post pictures of their cities and why you should follow them.

Instagram grid lindaberlin

#1 lindaberlin, Berlin

Having spent our first few days as a married couple celebrating with a Berlin mini moon, I have some particularly fond memories of this city. Lindaberlin‘s images of this wonderful place show a different side throughout the seasons. If there’s one thing I love the most, it’s her eye for the incredible Berlin architecture.

Instagram grid ypldn

#2 ypldn, London

I lived in London for six years and barely saw half of the beautiful stuff ypldn finds and posts on his Instagram! A London tour guide in the flesh, it feels like he’s taking you on a virtual tour of the city’s most vibrant and artistic places as you scroll through his feed. He knows a thing or two about Art Deco, and there are plenty of beautiful examples to see.

Instagram grid newyorkcity

#3 newyorkcity, New York

A fashion and city Instagram user, Newyorkcity is new to my follow list. I was struck by her eye for giving just a ‘glimpse’ in her photos, so you feel like you’re getting a peek into the excitement of New York. If you love the city’s skyline already, you’re about to fall even deeper into it.

Instagram grid mikekus

#4 mikekus, Bath

From Vegas and Sicily to Bath and even Chichester, mikekus’ instagram feed is packed with delightful images from all over the world. The images of the UK are my favourite, however. I have been on a Bath city break, but through his pictures it kinda feels like I’ve been there longer. Add him to your follow list if you want to see a side of the UK that you’ve never seen before.

Instagram grid lyricyst

#5 Lyricyst, San Francisco

Ahh, San Francisco, you are lovely to photograph. Lyricyst does it so well too, particularly ‘top of the hill’ views from all over the city. Another great eye for structure, he also manages to find amazing graffiti and hidden messages across San Francisco. He’s recently been to Tokyo, so expect some stunning temple shots too.

    I can say that Paris is a perfect place for instagram. The architecture is perfectly match for the instagram effects. I have a little obsession with vintage. These images are divine and amazing. I wanted to try to post something like this. Your photos inspire me a lot. Thanks for sharing!

    I’m a big fan of Instagram, too – I always end up following people in the same city I’m in though and don’t find much wanderlust but will definitely add some new cities to watch! There are some great photos in this collection, thanks for sharing!

    And I’m @travelsofadam on Instagram :)

      I’ve usually followed Twitter friends and people in London too, then I kept seeing amazing photos on the popular page and thought – I need to broaden my Instagram horizons! I’ve noticed I’m planning more getaways since though ;)
