1. Cappadocia, Turkey

The sun-soaked whimsical ‘fairy chimneys’ and cone-shaped rock formations of Cappadocia in Turkey really can’t take a bad picture.
Everyone from @followmeto to @gypsea_lust @doyoutravel have documented their travels to this geological wonder on Turkey’s Anatolian plains. 
Another UNESCO World Heritage Site, this landscape of honey-combed hills in central Turkey is made up of an extensive network of tunnels and chambers which have been eroded over millions of years and carved into the rock faces. Making the dreamscape even more appealing — multiple hot-air balloon flights take off into the sky at sunset, offering any spectator a stunning sight to remember.

2. Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia

Croatia — and the sea-side city of Dubrovnik in particular — has made more of a name for itself from Game of Thrones fame of late, after it was picked as the filming location for King's Landing; but the country has several other stunning locations to offer for the luxury aficionado.
One of these is its Plitvice Lakes National Park — a UNESCO World Heritage site, and one of the oldest and largest natural reserves in the country. 
Spread over 295-sq.-kms of forest in central Croatia, this sanctuary is known for its chain of 16 terraced lakes, joined by waterfalls, that extend into a limestone canyon. The weaving, interconnected waterfalls are constantly flowing, and the lakes particularly are renowned for their distinctive colors, ranging from azure to green, grey or blue, with colors that change constantly depending on the quantity of minerals or organisms in the water and the angle of sunlight — which means no photo is ever exactly the same.

3. Diamond Beach, Iceland

Iceland has long been a photographer’s dream location, with hundreds — if not thousands — of Instagram-worthy locations to capture, but it’s Diamond Beach, on the South Coast, takes the cake.
A strip of jet-black sand belonging to the greater Breiðamerkursandur glacial plain and located by Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, here is where glistening, crystal-clear icebergs come to die, washing up on shore like dazzling gems stranded by the sea in stark contrast to the ebony canvas.

4. Maldives, Indian Ocean

Who hasn’t seen an image — drone or otherwise — of this paradisiacal location plugged on social media?
Boasting an endless horizon of crystal-clear turquoise water, dotted with palm-fringed tropical islands and luxurious ocean-set villas and bungalows — any spot in the Maldives is the ticket. 
However, for those who have serious cash to splash and want to treat themselves to the ultimate luxury getaway — look no further than the Jumeirah Vittaveli resort.
Earlier this year, the plush complex unveiled seven new Private Ocean Retreats — all equipped with the Instagram necessity of the moment: winding slides. 
Complete with incredible, sweeping Indian ocean views of the South Malé atoll, the suites come with gigantic open air decks, glass bottomed sunken lounges, outdoor relaxation beds, overwater hammocks — and access a 23-metre slide which runs from the top deck into the gentle waters of the crystal clear lagoon — in addition to in-villa dining, yoga, spa treatments, and the pampering of a dedicated 24-hour butler, of course.

5. Lavender fields, Provence, France

Each summer, the rolling hills in the region of Provence in southeastern France are transformed into rows of dusky purple, when the lavender blooms — offering guests an extraordinary visual and sensory spectacle fit for royalty.
While this is probably the most affordable luxury landscape to jet-set to — for those living in Europe at least — if you’re looking for the midas touch, then check out the Relais & Chateaux listing which spotlights some of the swankiest luxe hotels, guesthouses and private residences you can splurge on near the the Route de la Lavande.

6. Uyuni Salt Flats, Bolivia

Located 8 hours south of La Paz in Bolivia, Salar de Uyuni, is the world’s largest salt flat and an otherworldly location which should be on the bucket list for any luxury traveller who wants something for the photo album which is a little different and off the beaten track.
Besides its unmatched legacy as a prehistoric lake that went dry, leaving behind a desert-like, nearly 11,000-sq.-km. landscape of bright-white salt, rock formations and cacti-studded islands — those who visit in late April will witness the best of its photogenic qualities you can expect to see both the dry salt desert and the giant mirror effect it creates. This hotspot is also one of the harder ones to get to — so there are far less tourists than any of the others on the list!
