It's totally understandable tbh...

This Emirate Was Just Dubbed One Of The 'Most Instagrammed Road Trips In The World'

If Instagram has taught us anything, it’s that the UAE is the Little Black Dress of travel destinations. Perennially popular and always appropriate, millions of people have visited (and ‘grammed the daylights out of) the Middle Eastern country over the last year, making it one of the most sought-after holiday spots on earth.

But if you thought that tourists and residents alike were only hitting up Dubai and Abu Dhabi’s hot-spots then think again. An analysis of more than 12 million Instagram posts by UAE-based We Cash Any Car has Hatta secure a place as one of the most Instagrammed road trip in the world. Ringing in at seventh place after locations like Route 66 and The Austarlian Outback, the small, languorously paced town of Hatta, which is hidden away in the UAE’s Hajar Mountains and boarders Oman, is just a one-hour drive from the city.

Ahead, some of our favourite Instagram posts to celebrate this oh so photogenic spot.
