THE Republic fell to 13th spot in a list of the 50 most Instagrammable places in the world, taking a tumble from the top spot in 2022.

It lost out to Milan, London and Paris – which took the top three spots, respectively – in the 2023 ranking by travel publication Big 7 Travel on Wednesday.

The destinations were ranked in order of their visual allure and popularity on social media.

In a report on its annual hashtag tally, which is now in its fifth year, Big 7 said Singapore is a popular spot for Instagram users, and is known for its modern skyline, lush gardens and cultural attractions.

The publication chose the winners through a system that analysed hashtags and views on TikTok – for each destination, sample survey results of Big 7 Media’s audience of 1.5 million, as well as inputs from its global editorial team.

Singapore was surpassed by a number of other countries in the 2023 rankings, as it had a lower number of Instagram hashtags and TikTok views. Milan, for instance, racked up 22,058,065 hashtags and 97,000,000,000 TikTok views.

Singapore, in comparison, had 41,433,628 hashtags and 11,700,000,000 views.

Top 10 list:

> Milan, Italy

> London, England

> Paris, France

> Istanbul, Turkey

> New York, US

> Nepal

> Chicago, US

> Bali, Indonesia

> Sri Lanka
