Melbourne is known for many things. The amazing coffee, the crazy hook turns, the edgy street art. And now, we can add that it’s a perfectly photogenic place, at least, according to social media. Money.co.uk have done some math and found that Melbourne is among the top 20 most picture-perfect places on the planet. All scores for the cities were calculated based on the traffic accumulated across Instagram, TikTok, and YouTube.
London nabbed the top spot as the most popular destination across all three platforms with 150 million posts on Instagram, 28 billion views on TikTok and 150,000+ searches on YouTube. Dubai is a close second with a humongous 65 billion views on Tik Tok. Paris rounds off the top 3.
We even beat out Sydney by just a little bit. Melbourne had a total of 35.3 million posts, and came in at number 15, whereas Sydney had about 35.1 million posts and came in at number 16.
