The Most Photographed Places in the World

Trover is a travel community of global photographers, documenting the discoveries they make on their adventures. It’s a treasure trove filled with tips and inspiration from real people on real travels. The data used for this infographic is likely to change as the Trover community grows.

Trover and Expedia have come together to highlight the most photographed cities on Earth, as captured by this community of travel photographers.

### #6 Seattle

Chihuly Garden and Glass

Put up against London, Paris and New York, Seattle is most definitely the underdog on our list of the most photographed cities on Earth!

Made famous by The Space Needle, which dominates the skyline, Seattle is so much more than just another successful city. In fact, the Seattle tourist board announced that 2017 saw 39.9 million visitors come to the metropolis!

Take a look at the unique Chihuly Garden and Glass, and the eclectic Experience Music Project. Or why not use Seattle as your base for an adventure to Mt Rainier National Park, which is just a few hours outside the city.

### #5 Singapore

Gardens by the Bay

Famous for being a melting pot of Malay, Indian and Chinese cultures, the city-state of Singapore boasts fusion food, Buddhist temples and botanic gardens. All this on a land mass just twice the size of the Isle of Wight!

So it’s no surprise at all to find that this island city welcomed its highest number of tourists yet, when 17.4 million tourists flew to Singapore from across Europe, the Americas and Asia in 2017.

The Gardens by the Bay, Marina Bay Sands and the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple are among the most photographed locations in this fascinating sovereign state.

### #4 Dubai

Burj Khalifa

Loved for its underwater restaurants, infinity pools and gold markets, Dubai oozes affluence and the promise of living like royalty like no other destination on the planet.

Enticing 15.8 million visitors to its shores last year, it’s clear that tourists are captivated by the stunning, iconic structures of the Emirate, which make it gleam like a diamond in the desert.

These include Burj Khalifa, the most photographed place in Dubai, and the Burj Al Arab, which holds the title for being the world’s first and only 7-star hotel.

### #3 Paris

The Eiffel Tower

Like a can-can dancer in the Moulin Rouge, Paris draws in wide-eyed strollers looking to get delightfully lost in layers of rich culture, beautiful boulevards and a powerful past.

Known as the ‘capital of love’, Paris attracted 23.6 million tourists in 2017, with its culinary celebrity and picture-perfect views.

Among the most photographed places in Paris are, of course, the Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum and Notre-Dame Cathedral. But the City of Lights has so much more to offer, including the glorious Luxembourg Gardens, and the mysterious labyrinth of the Paris Catacombs, hidden deep beneath the city.

### #2 London

Big Ben

A magnet for lovers of global cities, London has attracted people from all over the world for centuries, resulting in a multi-layered metropolis.

Whatever you’re looking for, you’ll find it here. Eritrean food? London has it. Deer in the city? London has it. A way to Hogwarts? London has it! So it’s no surprise that the city expects to receive over 40 million visitors by 2025.

From Buckingham Palace to the London Eye, there’s a no shortage of competition for the most photographed site in London. And while both these attractions come in close, the winner is, of course, Big Ben!

### #1 New York City

Central Park

From the bustle of Times Square to Manhattan’s emblematic skyline and, of course, Central Park, New York’s iconic attractions have starred in countless movies.

With visitors taking a slice of the Big Apple back home on their camera phones, it’s hardly surprising that New York is the most photographed city in the world.

Seemingly on every traveller’s bucket list, the city reported that it broke its own visitor record again last year, when it welcomed 61.8 million tourists to its exciting streets.
