Palawan in the Philippines isn’t just regularly named ‘Most Beautiful Island in the World’, it’s also home to El Nido which tops almost every year’s loveliest beach list.

18/20 Prague, Czech Republic

When location scouts want 18th century Paris (or unspoiled medieval Europe), they head to Prague in the Czech Republic for cobbled streets, colorful and quaint houses, astonishing gothic churches and mighty bridges. Turns out what works in movies, also works for Prague on Instagram. Take kids to see the Astronomical Clock, the poignant Jewish Cemetery and the one-and-only Church of Our Lady Before Týn. #prague

17/20 Santorini, Greece

The Greek island of Santorini is a world-beating romantic and honeymoon favorite. It's surrounded by the Aegean, set on the edge of an enormous caldera and dotted with bleached white towns and villages tumbling down to the sea, so of course, it gets plenty love on Instagram too. Take kids for horse riding adventures in the volcanic interior, water sports, beautiful beaches and the famous Santorini donkeys #santorini

16/20 Cartagena, Colombia

Cartagena is almost more Caribbean than Colombian which gives it major Instagram appeal - it also helps that its ridiculously charming, colorful, historic and loaded with character. A walk round the enormous city walls is a must-do, don't miss the World Heritage old town, Umbrella Street should be high on your to-do list too, and definitely day-sail to Islas Rosario for beaches #cartagena

15/20 Edinburgh, Scotland

Edinburgh as good as holds a permanent position in the top five when it comes to world's most beautiful cities. And the combination of its hauntingly atmospheric Old Town and graceful Georgian New Town has obviously proved fairly irresistible on Instagram too. You definitely want to visit Edinburgh Castle with kids, but leave time for the amazing National Museum of Scotland, then take a walk up Arthur's Seat to see the view. And if you want vintage seaside charm, head to Portobello. #edinburgh

14/20 Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Brazil's most visited city and its most Instagram-adored, Rio de Janeiro is packed from end-to-end with icons, even has a New Wonder of the World in play and doesn't have a cut-off when it comes to legendary beaches. Take a cable car up Sugar Loaf Mountain, then hop on the train to go see Christ The Redeemer - admittedly, at 38m high, you can see the statue from just about anywhere in Rio. Surfing or football at the beach is a rite-of-passage for kids here, and the restored docklands is where to catch the city's culture #riodejaneiro

13/20 Lake Tekapo, New Zealand

New Zealand is the land of wild adventuring, so nobody will be shocked to discover that Lake Tekapo deep in the heart of South Island is a huge Instagram star. Dramatic mountains and vast open views make for loveable posts, and there are plenty. Take kids for a safe-taste of wilderness in spring or summer and hang around for nightfall to witness the spectacular stars: Lake Tekapo is one of New Zealand's greatest Dark Skies Reserves. #laketekapo

12/20 Toronto, Canada

Toronto is an Instagram icon. Between its sheer size (Canada's largest city), dramatic skyline, hyper-cool film festival and the fact that it's now #1 location of choice for just about any TV show set in a city, how could it be anything else? Kids will like Canada's Wonderland theme park; Scarborough Bluffs; the hair-raising CN Tower experience and, if you feel like a drive, Niagara Falls from a Canadian angle #toronto

11/20 Paris, France

Paris has more historical monuments than any other city in the world. It's also home to the Louvre and does a nice line in gorgeous shops and restaurants, food markets, cool as ice Parisians. Plus, it's the place which practically invented the pavement café. Do we need to tell you  how much Instagram loves Paris? Take kids to look at the Eiffel Tower (view from Sacré-Cœur is better and practically free). Visit the Tuileries and wander round the Latin Quarter and Le Marais for atmosphere, then go do Disneyland (another Instagram icon). #paris

10/20 Amsterdam, Netherlands

Amsterdam is another extremely Instagram-friendly European capital where quirk comes naturally courtesy of canals, skinny canal houses and the daring stuff locals get up to on bikes. Visit with kids for Artis Zoo and pancake breakfasts, the Anne Frank House, Vondelpark, guided cycle tours, the phenomenal Rijksmuseum and wild adventures in Amsterdamse Bos. #amsterdam

9/20 Dubrovnik, Croatia

Dubrovnik in Croatia is a seaside city like no other and Instagram can't get enough of its red roofs, Adriatic views, city walls and medieval quaintness. Just about every inch of the city was used in Game of Thrones which gives it instant kid-appeal and if that doesn't work, there are endless beautiful local beaches and heaps of island hopping adventures to be had. #dubrovnik

8/20 Rome, Italy

If you want a true Instagram obsession, look no further than Rome. The Coliseum alone stacks up millions of posts. There's a pretty much endless passion for pizza, pasta and gelato. The Centro Storico is a top performer for monuments, ruins and magnificent piazza. And districts like Trastevere and Monti have hashtags of their very own. Start a family vacation with a hike up Janiculum Hill and take it from there, kids love Rome almost as much as Instagram does. #rome

7/20 Maldives

The Maldives' combination of tropical paradise islands, luxury resorts, deserted beaches and an Indian Ocean color palette make it an Instagram natural. The love of looking at delectable overwater villas and bendy palm trees is echoed by how much families adore this amazing archipelago which also happens to be one of the best places in the world to learn to dive - good news for adventurous kids. #maldives

6/20 Jaipur, India

Jaipur is known as the Pink City and was apparently painted the rosy colour to impress Prince Albert in the 19th century. Switch it up to the 21st and turns out Instagram's equally taken with the colorful capital of Rajasthan. If you're trying to impress kids, Jaipur's immense forts and ornate palaces should do the trick. #jaipur

5/20 London, England

Street markets, royal parks, art galleries and museums, street-style, palaces and terraces, pubs, people and even pigeons are just a hint of how London inspires Instagram. A brilliant city for hidden oddities and tucked away places, it's great fun to explore with kids and remember to stop for tea; London afternoon teas are legendary on Insta. #london

4/20 Lisbon, Portugal

Lovely Lisbon shines on Instagram and why wouldn't it? From scarlet-roofed Alfama to bright yellow trams and jewel-like wall tiles, it's a riot of color. No shortage of history here either or big, beautiful Atlantic beaches. And that's all before you even climb up to the city's rooftop bars and restaurants or wander round the shops. What you don't get on Instagram is the friendly atmosphere and that, along with everything else, is what makes this an all-time favourite capital to see with kids. #lisbon

3/20 New York City, USA

New York has been top of the most Instagramed lists since the beginning. Amazingly photogenic from its world-famous skyline to the extraordinary people; it's also a great big show-off in the best kind of way so even the most dedicated on Instagram never run short of shots. Of course, because New York's big on being bigger and better than anywhere else so if you're planning to do Instagram stories from the city, expect to be recording lots of open mouthed wonder.#newyork

2/20 Dubai, UAE

Dubai is extraordinary and gets exactly the kind of Instagram attention you'd expect from a city known for luxury resorts, extravagant manmade islands, monster shopping malls and unfeasibly tall towers. As far as great posts go, it helps that the skies here are perpetually clear and the sun almost never stops shining - another reason why Dubai is now a medium-haul winter sun go-to for UK families. #dubai

1/20 Sydney, Australia

Sydney sneaks in at #1 thanks as much to the sensational harbor as its beaches. Waterfront restaurants and intriguing historic districts attract lots of likes too, but most loved of all has to be Bondi - not least of all for its almost-in-the-sea swimming pool. Australia really earns the title 'dream destination' and if the entire, incredible country is on your family bucket list, Sydney is a great place to start. #sydney
