These Are The Best Vacation Spots for Instagram Cred

Get your passport ready.

Summer is just around the corner and that means it's time for a change of scenery — trading the city and sky scrapers for somewhere sunny with a nice view. While we aim to book everything months in advance for cheaper prices, we also want to make sure that where we're going is the place to be. Let's be honest, there are plenty of places to vacation in the summer. We can just take a train or a short flight to the nearest beach, but not just any location is going to fulfill wanderlust or, more importantly, up your Insta game. 

Check out 5 influencer-approved destinations that will increase your Instagram cred and earn you some envious double tabs:

Marrakesh, Morocco

The whole city of Marrakesh is perfect for exploring, whether you're seeking out culinary delights, shopping sprees at the souk or simply enjoying the warm weather on a rooftop while watching the sky turn orange. It is also a top spot for fashion and travel bloggers to get those picture-perfect shots, and there's one place in particular where everybody flocks to: the pool of the seven-room Riad Jasmine Hotel has become a destination on its own right thanks to Lauren Bullen of @gypsea_lust and her partner Jack Morris of @doyoutravel, who made a poolside breakfast chic again. 

Turks and Caicos

Revolve Clothing just flew the hottest crew of style stars to Turks and Caicos for a sea, sun and fun trip full of fabulous beach attire, naturally. When you're not on a yacht or taking selfies by the sea, you can enjoy a spa day at one of the luxury resorts with clean, modern designs – and even a clear glass pool or two. The itinerary for this Revolve trip included morning yoga, fabulous lunch in a cabana and some serious Bae Watch time on the beach. If you head to the Caribbean this summer, remember one thing: you have to pose in your swimsuit on a jet ski. It's mandatory. 

Phuket, Thailand

One of the most desirable destinations in the world, this southern city in Thailand has welcomed style makers from all over. Rent a private speed boat and picnic on an isolated island for a more serene getaway. If you want to be among the crowd, Koh Phi Phi will do the trick – but the be sure to stay at Sri Panwa to rub shoulders with local celebs and international bloggers. The hot spots for an Instagram pic are undoubtedly the infinity pool, with an endless view of the Andaman sea, or the Baba Pool Club where you can dine and chill in the pool at the same time. 

Santorini, Greece

Greece is always a good idea. But, thanks to Chanel, we feel like it is going to be #trending big time this summer. While you're enjoying the clear blue water (and sky) during the day and watching the sun set from a sea-facing terrace, be sure to do an Instagram post with a backdrop of the gleaming white houses and lapis blue domes. Don't forget to break up the palette with a selection of brightly colored swimsuits – the chalky buildings are just the perfect backdrop to fun, funky bikinis. 

Positano, Italy

Italy's Amalfi coast offers breathtaking scenery, wherever you're headed. But Positano has been a favorite for many influencers and we can certainly see why. The cascade of terracotta-colored houses is gorgeous, and whether you are on a boat, dining on the cliff or sunbathing on the beach, the orange and yellow buildings will be the most eye-catching thing on anyone's feeds — earning you automatic double-taps.
