Last year, CheapOair.com noticed a trend in travelers picking their destinations based on “Instagramability”. This year, the online travel agency and leading provider of cheap flights sees no sign of this movement slowing down. To help travelers plan their trips, CheapOair has selected its top picks for the most photogenic destinations to visit during the summer 2019 travel season.
Sardinia: From your best friend to your great-aunt, you’ve probably noticed that everyone has already been to the Amalfi Coast. Be the talk of all your followers this summer with a trip to the island of Sardinia, one of Italy’s best-kept secrets. The trendsetting Instagrammer will enjoy spectacular beaches, hidden coves, and of course, the freshest seafood the Mediterranean has to offer. Average airfare for summer travel from the US to Sardinia is $1,167*.
Baja California: Skip hectic Napa this summer and head south of the border to Valle de Guadalupe, Mexico for winery tours. With its Mediterranean-like climate, the conditions are perfect for producing big, bold reds that are starting to get a lot of attention. As tourism grows, so does the food scene which makes Baja California the perfect destination for the foodie Instagrammer this summer. Average airfare for summer travel from the US to Baja California is $502.
Myanmar: This Southeast Asian country has it all. From limestone mountains and rice paddies to breath-taking beaches and temples. This summer, the fashionista Instagrammer should choose a colorful outfit when visiting the white-washed Hsinbyume Pagoda to really stand out. Average airfare for summer travel from the US to Myanmar is $1,157*.
Bulgaria: This former Soviet-bloc nation is finding its footing within the European Union and is starting to attract Western travelers. The off-the-beaten-path Instagrammer will appreciate the limited number of tourists and the ability to form a deeper connection with the locals. Plus, the many free walking tours available make it a budget-friendly destination. Average airfare for summer travel from the US to Bulgaria is $995*.
Alaska: If you’re an outdoorsy Instagrammer, you’ll surely enjoy the moderate temperatures and myriad of exciting activities Alaska has to offer in the summer. Plus, in June and July you can take advantage of up to 22 hours of daylight to make the most of your visit. Don’t miss out on one of the quintessential Alaskan activities of visiting a glacier. You may even get to see “calving” as the region goes through the summer melt. Average airfare for summer travel from the US to Alaska is $570*.
Jordan: Thanks to the fame brought by Indiana Jones, Petra has long been the pinnacle of the adventure Instagrammer’s bucket list. However, if you’re looking to stand apart from the rest, set your sights on Wadi Rum. In addition to the red-rock desert landscape, you’ll feel extra interplanetary with a stay in a desert bubble. Like Petra, Wadi Rum has also been the location for many movie sets. Average airfare for summer travel from the US to Jordan is $1,216*.
