Traveling is all about the memories; selfies are a great way to document those memories. If you have an Instagram account, you’ve probably taken one or two selfies while traveling. Selfies can be fun and exciting, but they can also be boring if there’s not anything interesting around you to take a picture of. That’s why we think it’s important for you to know where some of the best places in the world are for taking selfies!
The Eiffel Tower
The Eiffel Tower is a must-see for any selfie-loving traveler. It’s the perfect spot for snapping a picture of yourself as you gaze out into Paris and take in its beauty from above, but there are some things to consider before heading over there.
You should go at sunset, when the city lights up with golden colors–it’ll make for some amazing photos! If possible, try to visit during off-season if possible so that crowds are smaller and less overwhelming (and quieter). When you get there, don’t forget your camera app or whatever else makes it easier for you take selfies!
Times Square, New York City
In New York City, there is no better place to snap a selfie than Times Square. This major commercial intersection and neighborhood stretches from West 42nd to West 47th Streets in Midtown Manhattan and is named after The New York Times Building, which sits right at its center. If you want to take an iconic picture of yourself with the bright lights of Broadway behind you, then this is your spot!
The Statue Of Liberty
The Statue of Liberty, a symbol of freedom and democracy, is a must-see attraction for any visitor to New York City. The statue itself is located on Liberty Island in New York Harbor.
The easiest way to get there is by ferry from Battery Park at the southern tip of Manhattan (it’s free). You can also get there by taking an Uber or Lyft ride from anywhere in Manhattan and paying about $5-$8 each way depending on traffic conditions at that time.
The best time to visit depends on what you want out of your trip: Do you want crowds? Do you want quiet? Are you visiting during summer vacation season when school kids are out? If so, then it’s best to go during May through September because these months tend to have fewer tourists than other times throughout year; however if this doesn’t matter then any month works!
The Colosseum, Rome
The Colosseum, Rome
The Colosseum is a tourist attraction and one of the most famous landmarks in Rome. It’s known for its size and architecture–it’s the largest amphitheater ever built! The Romans built it between 70-80 A.D., when they were at their peak as an empire. The amphitheater had to seat 50,000 people for gladiator fights and other events like animal hunts or executions (which also made for great entertainment).
You can take selfies with friends next to this ancient structure that still stands strong after all these years. There are plenty of places nearby where you can get good photos of yourself against its imposing stone walls or sitting on top of them like some kind of Roman emperor or queen!
Buckingham Palace, London
Buckingham Palace is the official residence of the British monarch. It is not open to the public, but you can take a photo in front of it. It was built in 1703 and has 775 rooms!
Central Park, New York City
Central Park is a public park in the middle of Manhattan. It was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, who were also responsible for Prospect Park in Brooklyn. The 843-acre (340 ha) park is mostly maintained as a natural area, with ponds and wetlands that provide habitat for local wildlife like birds, squirrels and turtles.
The most visited urban park in the United States, Central Park attracts over 25 million visitors each year. It is popular with tourists as well as locals looking to relax or exercise while enjoying its many attractions such as Strawberry Fields (named after John Lennon), Shakespeare Garden (named after William Shakespeare) and Bow Bridge.
Selfridges, Birmingham, UK
Selfridges is a department store in Birmingham, UK. It’s one of the most popular tourist attractions in the city and is known for its Christmas lights. The rooftop terrace offers panoramic views of the surrounding city, making it an ideal spot for snapping selfies and taking photos with friends or family members.
Miho Museum Garden & Cafe “Take-Away” (solo photo) – Okayama, Japan
The Miho Museum Garden & Cafe “Take-Away” is the perfect place to take a solo selfie, especially if you’re traveling alone. The garden has plenty of spots where you can get away from the crowds and have some privacy while snapping your photo.
The same goes for group photos: this spot has plenty of room so everyone can get in on the action without feeling too cramped or crowded together. And if you want to show off how much fun your group had on their trip? This is also the perfect spot for that!
If there were ever a place that was made for couples selfies, it would be this one! The beautiful scenery and peaceful atmosphere makes this an ideal location to capture some romantic memories together while enjoying delicious food at their cafe inside the museum itself (which serves up both Western and Japanese cuisine). Plus, they’ve got some pretty cool exhibitions inside too!
The Ryugyong Hotel – Pyongyang, North Korea (solo photo)
The Ryugyong Hotel is the tallest building in North Korea and one of the tallest buildings in the world. It’s also still under construction! The 105-story pyramid-shaped building has a glass facade that glows at night, making it look like something out of a sci-fi movie. It’s located right next to Kim Il Sung Square, where state leaders give speeches during big events like parades or military drills.
It may not be open yet (or ever), but if you visit Pyongyang anytime soon and want to take a selfie with this iconic structure behind you, here’s how:
- Head over there after dark so that all those lights are on; then wait for some people to leave so there aren’t too many other tourists around;
- Find yourself an angle where no one else will block your shot;
- Snap away!
Selfies are the best way to travel!
Selfies are the best way to travel! If you’re an avid selfie-taker, then there’s no better way to capture all of your favorite memories than on your own camera phone. Sure, selfies aren’t for everyone and may not be as artful or meaningful as other types of photography; but what they lack in skill and technique they make up for in accessibility and fun!
Whether it’s sharing them with friends and family back home or just looking at them yourself when you get home from vacation (or perhaps even while still abroad), taking selfies is a great way to remember the good times. Plus–who doesn’t love seeing themselves on Instagram?
Thanks for reading! It’s time to get out there and take some selfies.
