Boracay Ranks Among 50 Most Instagrammable Places in the World – Big 7 Travel

Once again, Boracay has made it to Big 7 Travel’s 50 Most Instagrammable Places in the World this year! “The Philippines cannot be left off this list,” the global travel website said.

From second place last year, the resort island is now in the 39th spot. The 2023 list is based on their study of the number of hashtags/views per destination on two major social media platforms. And apparently, the famous tourist destination in the Philippines reportedly garnered 3,125,339 hashtags on Instagram and 801,400,000 on TikTok. That’s 804,525,339 in total!
