INSTAGRAM and travel pretty much go hand-in-hand these days. For some, you haven’t truly visited a place until it’s been captured on camera and shared with your fellow ‘grammers. And as our love of travel only increases, so too will the #wanderlust posts and envy-inducing holiday snaps.

In fact, #travel came in the top 10 most used hashtags of 2017 and #travelphotography gained the most in popularity over the last twelve months, highlighting our ever-growing obsession with hitting the road less traveled.

The sprawling metropolis is home to more than 9 million people and offers plenty of material to get creative with your iPhone. The hustle and bustle of everyday life in Jakarta is intriguing enough to keep even the most keen instagrammer spoiled for material.

Located on the northern coast of Java, the province of Jakarta has rapidly expanded through the years, absorbing many villages in the process. The maze of streets and crunching traffic make a reliable travel app or GPS an absolute must.
