Although, it really comes as no surprise for those who’ve been living in or visiting KL. Big 7 Travel’s annual hashtag tally, now in its fourth year, examines places with the most ‘Gram appeal and described KL as, “practically oozing with Insta-aesthetic.” Our city is visually alluring with its iconic towers, lush gardens, historic landmarks, and architectural style that’s unique to our region.

Meanwhile, nabbing the top spot on the list is our neighbour, Singapore. With spectacular photo opportunities ranging from the landmark Supertree Grove at Gardens by the Bay to the vivid kaleidoscope of street art along Haji Lane, Singapore sure does make for excellent photo ops.
