Halong Bay comprises 2,000 isles, islets and rock formations, all creating a photogenic backdrop

Who needs to use a filter when you capture your perfect shot in one of these jawdropping locations…

Bagan Temples, Myanmar

The 3,000 or so temples of Bagan are a sight to behold. You can make it even more special by taking a hot air balloon ride over the temples and capturing the moment from there.

Sigiriya Rock, Sri Lanka

Arguably the most spectacular sight in Sri Lanka, the towering rock-fortress of Sigiriya is perched high above the forested plains, affording those who are brave enough to climb to the top spectacular views. Aside from the views, the climb is worth it to see the 1,500 year old frescoes that adorn a cave 100 metres up.

Halong Bay, Vietnam

Staying on your own private junk boat, you can be guaranteed of an uninterrupted selfie. Whether you’re enjoying sundowners on the deck or relaxing in the Jacuzzi, there’s no risk of a passer by getting in the picture. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Halong Bay is comprised of over 2,000 isles and islets and impressive limestone rock formations, all providing an incredibly photogenic backdrop.

Underwater Selfie In Philippines

While Palawan may be slightly harder to reach than the likes of Cebu and Boracay, it is well worth it. Pangalusian Island is the place to stay for pristine beaches without the crowds and a marine sanctuary on your doorstep. While the tropical forest, ancient volcanoes, white sand and turquoise sea is enough to cause envy back home, the spectacular sights under the water will whip up a frenzy among your green-eyed friends. El Nido has more than 20 dive sites, all teaming with over 800 species of fish who are more than willing to jump in your selfie.

Taj Mahal, India

Amongst the chaotic city of Agra sits one of the most beautiful – and photographed – monuments in the world. Go early in the morning to avoid the crowds, or stay at The Oberoi Amarvilas which is just 600 metres from the Taj Mahal and affords the best views of the fantastic structure from your window.
