MOST INSTAGRAMMABLE PLACES IN NEW YORK

Having checked off New York’s Bucket List, on my latest trip to New York I came determined to find the most instagrammable places in New York City. And I did! Discover them below.

1. DUMBO

Before you ask, DUMBO means Down Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass, and the above photo can be taken in Washington St. (location here). As you can probably imagine, it gets full of people, so either come early or be prepared to wait and play with your camera a bit.

2. Cha Cha Matcha

With now three locations across Manhattan, the pinkness of this place plus it’s colorful drinks make for great pictures! The picture above was taken on the Lafayette St store.

3. Pietro Nolita

For those looking for more pinkness, this fully pink restaurant makes awesome pics. You don’t need to dine there to get a picture, and can get one outside.

4. L’Apartement Sézane

This clothing store always has flowers on its store front that make for a beautiful insta shot. The clothes are beautiful as well, but last time I visited there was a long queue to get in!

5. Elizabeth Street Gallery

It’s façade is actually from an old bakery, but today it is a gallery selling slightly overpriced unique objects. Makes for a nice picture!

Let’s face it – the Flatiron building just looks great in photos! Get that Flatiron shot.

7. Albanese Meats & Poultry

Also an old façade which is actually a butcher from 1923. If you look inside, you might see it’s owner, Moe Albanese, who is over 94 years old!

11. Yellow Taxis

Ok, I know this is technically not a spot, but let’s face it, the best NYC instagram pictures most of the times picture a yellow taxi. Just make sure you don’t get run over trying to get that perfect shot!

12. Brunch! 

Again technically not an actual place. New York has great brunch spots. And who doesn’t love a brunch shot? This picture was taken at abcV which was also super yummy! Try to seat outside for better lighting.

THAILAND: PAI BUCKET LIST

Pai Bucket List

Pai is a cute little town in Northern Thailand. So many people recommended it to me! I was tight on time so only spent one full day there but honestly, I would have spent more. It’s just so unique. It has a hippie, jungly and even slightly beachy vibe (even though there is no beach). There are no pressures and no pretensions in Pai! This is what I would recommend you do when visiting.

MR FOGGS HOUSE OF BOTANICALS

Mr Foggs House of Botanicals-1

Mr Foggs House of Botanicals

I heard about Mr Foggs House of Botanicals opening and I thought: a House of Botanicals? I need to visit right away! After doing some research, I learned two things. First, there are many Mr Foggs, and this is the newest one. Second, Mr Foggs is part of the same group as the must-visit iconic bar Cahoots so this made me even more eager.

Upon arrival to Mr Foggs House of Botanicals which is located on a corner of Fitzrovia, we were greeted by the lovely doormen and let in. We quickly learned that the downstairs area of the bar is walk in, while upstairs is reserved for bookings. Both areas have different cocktail menus. The downstairs area is filled of lush greenery and nice people chatting, and most are standing up. If you were to try and imagine how the area looks like, it is a little bit like if there were a bar inside of the Kew Gardens’ greenhouse. If you look up, you’ll find bird cages filled with plant and flowers which hang from the ceiling.

If you only have time to visit one city in Poland, make it Krakow. This city is rich in culture and history, it has beautiful architecture, it’s super cheap and it’s fun. It also has interesting and key places to visit nearby, one of them being the hard to digest but not to be skipped, Auschwitz. Below I outline the best things to do in and nearby Krakow, as well as accommodation and transportation tips.

Explore Krakow’s Old Town

Make this the first thing you do. As soon as I got to Krakow I did a free walking tour of the Old Town. The tour guide was super knowledgeable and took us to many beautiful sites including the Main Market Square & St Marys church, Cloth Hall and Townhall Tower, the remains of medieval city walls with Barbican and St Florian Gate, St Francis Church, Bishops Palace, the Papal Window, Wawel Hill, Wawel Castle and Wawel Dragon.

I ended up doing a bunch of free tours with the same company, they always had Polish guides which made a lot more authentic.
