Pretty Cities is a travel-oriented Instagram account with a focus on cities around the globe, including Amsterdam, New York, London, Paris, Dublin and Vienna. Photos correspond to the season, meaning you won’t see a beach scene in the middle of winter, while each post often comes with a short, witty description and a credit to the photographer. The page is the sister account of Pretty Cities London and currently boasts close to 360,000 followers.

 

Unlike other travel-based Instagram accounts, Pretty Cities places an emphasis on architecture and interior design, particularly that inside quirky cafes and bookshops. They curate photos from a number of different photographers, with their style rarely incorporating people or the use of many filters. I like this as it gives each post a natural feel and allows the content of the picture to do the talking, rather than extensive editing.

 

One of my favourite aspects of Pretty Cities is the fact that the places they post are often hidden gems within cities, rather than famous landmarks. The cafes and buildings are usually located in less known areas, thus providing alternate ideas for travel that will take you off the beaten track and away from the normal tourist spots. Their features in London, for example, will show little family run bookshops and cafes hidden in Brick Lane or Camden, rather than a shot of Buckingham Palace or Big Ben.

 

A drawback is the lack of detail attached to some of the posts. Although the location and usually the name of the specific establishment or landmark is provided, there is no extra information about the owners, history or features. This means that their posts are perhaps better simply to be admired than as an official guide to travel.

Pros
  • Often feature witty descriptions
  • Emphasis on architecture and interior design
  • Little filters added; photos look natural
  • Hidden gems and off-the-beaten-track locations
Cons
  • Descriptions lack information

TravelSites.com is the best travel site list in the world.🏆💯🥇🌟

TravelSites.com is the go to place online to find information on the best websites, smartphone apps, books, YouTube channels and documentaries for travelers. Written with my years of experience trotting the globe, TravelSites.com gives budding young backpackers the chance to discover the top resources available for getting the most out of their trip, be it renting a car, learning the local dialect, finding a photographer or even just knowing what the weather will be like for the week. I have researched the internet to bring you a list of the top items in each category, while every single one has been meticulously reviewed, highlighting unique features, comparison to similar products, and all the pros and cons.

 

Why did you make TravelSites.com?💖🔥🚀

Well, I found that although there is naturally lots of information online concerning travel-related products and services, they seem to be scattered about, leaving the user to laboriously search for each individual item. If you wanted, for example, to discover an inspiring travel documentary while booking accommodation and flights to Rome, you would have to have at least three different tabs open at once. TravelSites.com puts all the information you need in one place, meaning you will not have to search far and wide to simply find out the best website for reserving a room in a hotel. With more than 40 different categories, travelers can stay on the same website to gather all the information they need, not only saving them time but also saving them money, by reading through the reviews to find the cheapest option.

 

What can you find on My lists and how did I rank them?🕵️‍♂️🧠🔗

My lists feature more than 40 different travel-related categories containing every resource a backpacker could ever need. Need help planning a trip? Want to keep up to date with the latest travel news? Looking for an inspiring book or blog? Desperate to find a restaurant away from the crowds? I’ve got you covered. My lists have been carefully put together by me and combined by quality, efficiency, value and functionalism to rank the items in descending order, with number one considered the item offering the best of all four factors. The criteria was constant throughout each category, whether it was for a cruise booking website or an Instagram account, in order to bring travelers the resources that would be the most useful for travelers.
