The first step to having an Instagram-worthy vacation is to pick a picture-perfect destination. When it comes to travel, looks matter—so it’s important to choose a place that will photograph well. Some of my personal favorites include Paris, New York City, and Rome. But no matter where you decide to go, make sure it’s a place that you’ll be able to get some great photos.

2. Stay in a Stylish Hotel

When it comes to getting good photos, where you stay matters just as much as where you go. That’s why it’s important to choose a hotel that has style and personality. Not only will this make your photos look great, but it’ll also add an element of luxury to your vacation. Some of my favorite hotels are the Mandarin Oriental in New York City and the Hôtel de Crillon in Paris. But no matter where you’re staying, make sure your hotel is up to par—after all, you don’t want your photos ruined by an ugly room in the background!

3. Eat at the Hottest Restaurants

If there’s one thing that can really make or break a vacation photo, it’s the food. After all, who wants to post a picture of themselves eating at a dive restaurant? That’s why it’s important to do your research and find out which restaurants are hot right now. Eating at the latest and greatest restaurants will not only make your photos look great, but it’ll also give you something to brag about when you get home! 

4. Get Out and Explore

Of course, no matter where you go or what you do, the best way to get great photos is simply to get out and explore! Take some time to wander around and find the best spots for taking pictures—you never know what hidden gems you might find. And don’t forget to take some pictures of yourself! After all, what’s the point of having an Instagram-worthy vacation if you’re not in any of the photos? 

With just a little bit of planning, you can have an Instagram-worthy vacation of your own — one that will make all your friends jealous! Just remember to pick a picture-perfect destination, stay in a stylish hotel, eat at the hottest restaurants, and get out and explore! With these tips in mind, you’re sure to have a vacation that’s #goals worthy!
