Best Travel Hashtags You Can Use On Instagram

instagram hashtags

With 600 million monthly active users and 400 million daily active users, Instagram is one of the best social network to share your content. And when it comes to travelling, Instagram can be your best bet to promote your photographs.

Much like Twitter, Instagram also lets you add hashtags on your photographs to let people find your content. There is no need for you to think like an Instagram expert when using hashtags, but using them strategically can prove beneficial in increasing engagement rates on your profile.

Based on my research, I'm sharing below the best travel hashtags you can use for your travel photographs.


Hashtag your destination

First of all, your followers are interested in knowing which place a photograph was taken. When you use location specific hashtags, chances are high that people interested in that location or travelling there will like your photograph.

Some examples include:

#mexico
#bali
#paris
#london
#madagascar and much more

To find more related hashtags for a location, go to the search bar in your Instagram and look for the location. A lot more suggestions will pop out.


Hashtag what's around you

Describe what are you capturing? A sunset? Mountains? Ocean? Fishes? According to Huffington Post, these are the most popular hashtags on Instagram anyway.

#ocean
#Sky
#mountains
#nature
#food
#night
#luxury


Describe the moment

Was the place you visited good? Was the food you had delicious? Share it with a hashtag:

#funny
#amazing
#stunning
#breathtaking
#cute
#love
#pretty


Hashtag what you're doing

Were you cycling or hiking on mountains? Were you relaxing on the beach? Share it using these hashtags:

#running
#relaxing
#hiking
#camping
#swimming
#spa


General travel hashtags

Apart from the specific hashtags, these are some general hashtags which you can use on your photographs:

#travel
#passionpassport
#vacation
#travelgram
#traveldiary
#trip
#tourism
#tourist

Though some of these hashtags like #travel are a bit cluttered, but use them anyway because that's what you're doing.


General Instagram hashtags

Because Instagram is so popular, hashtags specific to the service will also help increase engagement on your photographs. You can use hashtags like:

#instalike
#instamood
#instadaily
#instagood
#igaddict
#igdaily
#instalove


How many hashtags can you use?

The best answer to this question is: it depends upon you. You can use upto 30 hashtags per post though. Make sure the hashtags you use are relevant to the photograph you're sharing.


How to remember what hashtags to use?

Well, there are many apps out there to make your life simpler. Use these apps to find suggested hashtags for your photograph and take a note of them. Personally speaking, I find these apps a bit limiting because they will delete some hashtags keeping their relevancy in mind.

For my photographs, I write down the hashtags I want to use for a photograph and which will help me garner most likes.


The rule of thumb?

Here's how I will sum up this post. Tag the destination, the moment, the feeling and what were you doing there. Next, just add a few generic Instagram hashtags to maximise the reach.
