10 Instagram photos that will inspire you to travel

The 150 million active users and 16 billion photos shared on Instagram prove that it is without doubt one of the world’s most popular mobile apps.

Instagram was originally available only on Apple’s iOS devices, designed to take advantage of the iPhone’s high-quality camera and the trend for retro photography filters. Later it was released on other operating systems including Android and more recently, Windows. The simplicity of the app ensured its popularity soon exploded to make it one of the most downloaded apps on any device, with a loyal and dedicated following.

One of the best uses for Instagram is making good travel images look like great ones. So here at Holiday Hypermarket we are celebrating the perfect union of Instagram and travel photography with this collection of inspiring travel photos that will make you want to pack your suitcase immediately!
