Colombo is the top must photograph destination

Colombo, Sri Lanka is an Instagram users' favourite destination.

A study commissioned by Huawei has revealed that the capital of the South Asian country has topped the poll of must photograph destinations, followed swiftly behind by Kobe / Yokohama in Japan and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park, Uganda.

The Isle of Harris in Scotland is the only destination in the United Kingdom whilst Europe only has one entry too - Baden-Baden, Germany.

Justin Costello, Huawei director of marketing for UK and Ireland, said: "It's interesting to see that Gen Z are keen to get out and explore the world by treading their own path - enabling them to share with friends their experiences in these new 'must shoot' destinations on social media. Being able to stay connected no matter where you are in the world, and being able capture to scale, colours and beauty of these amazing locations so you can share your major life experiences through the power of photography will always be important to those who have firmly caught the 'explorer' bug."

The study also revealed that young people aged between 18 and 25 like to go to more off the radar locations so they can be the first to discover the place, whilst 40 per cent of people believe where they live would be a nice place for Instagram fans to visit.
