It's just been discovered that one of the world's most Instagrammed road trips is the UAE's very own Hatta. That's practically on our doorstep! Well, not entirely - that would defeat the purpose of a road trip. But the good news is it's only a short drive away, and makes for a wonderful day out thanks to picture-perfect views - as research has shown. Hatta has been posted on Instagram 25,929 times, excluding any pictures that weren't tagged. Even cooler? Our neighbouring Hatta ranked higher than Tuscany, Italy, which is home to the well-known Amalfi Coast and Garden Route. Go, UAE!
Though classic road trips like Route 66 and Australia's Great Ocean Road still reign supreme, the UAE is on the rise with Hatta and its mountainous terrain sitting comfortably at number seven, sitting a mere 3,000 posts behind the Pacific Coast Highway in the USA.
The research was conducted by Dubai-based wecashanycar and data was collected from the top 20 most Instagrammable trips over the last 5 years.
