5. @lonelyplanet

We love Lonely Planet’s Instagram account because they feature many amateur photographers’ photos on their well-curated page. Their bio reads: “For 45 years we’ve been helping travelers to explore every day.” They also invite amateur photogs to tag their shots with #lonelyplent or #mylpguide to be featured on their page. This allows followers to find these lesser-known travel and adventure photographers and join in on their experiences around the world. They offer great comprehensive guides on destinations all over, from Africa to Asia and everywhere in between. Plus, not they don’t only focus on top travel destinations. They also offer guides for things such as solo travel and travel scams. In addition, they have helpful tips on how to navigate getting lost in a foreign destination and more.
