These are Instagram’s hottest travel destinations for 2020

While most international borders remain firmly closed, you can still tour the greatest sights of the world via Instagram.

We know, it sounds silly, but Instagram has become the ideal spot for travel inspiration, with users posting pictures around the world of everything from sandy beaches and futuristic skylines to scenic landmarks and the world’s most luxurious objects and restaurants.
