Top 20 Most Photographed Locations in the World

Since Apple, Samsung, and Huawei collectively refused our request to send us data on the number of photos their users took everywhere they went in the world…unsurprisingly…we’ve collated data surrounding the world’s most visited cities as a measure of determing where the most photographs are taken each year.

We’ve built this list under the presumption that travelling to a destination implies taking photographs, so naturally we would expect that the most visited locations also happen to be the most photographed. There is really no definitive way to effectively measure this statistic otherwise…that we know of, so we’ve done our best with what we have and know.
