Admit it, you spend hours and hours scrolling through your Instagram feed, watching stories, and mindlessly hitting like. But your browsing doesn’t have to be so monotonous. Thanks to these amazing photographers, we have free access to our dream destinations and inspiration for our next trip. Here are 10 PH Instagram accounts that will inspire you to travel:
1. Nico Nuyda (@niconuyda)
If it isn’t obvious from his feed, he is up for any adventure. Nico is a storyteller through and through. Aside from his beautiful photographs, he also has a way with words. Each post tells a story – a refreshing break from everything else thoughtless on the internet.
I met your textures one by one; every bit of who you are so fascinatingly varied and different to the proverbial touch that I'm left guessing as to what comes next. I take a step back for your contrasting aspects sum up to a wonderful whole just to take it all in. I went over a photo in the past and retinkered. #asia #travel #outside #outdoors #adventure #explore #Nikon1V3 #WTNadventures #FreeSpiritsPH #sunrise #hiking #live #mountains #ocean #water
#NICOrkboard2017 There are those in our lives that will leave lulls in the wake of their presence. Yes, the everydays will ease into a passable rhythm. In, then out. In, then out. But what is life without color bursting out of nowhere with no notice? What is living without feeling the warmth of their embrace? #Philippines #asia #travel #outside #outdoors #adventure #explore #NikonD610 #WTNadventures #FreeSpiritsPH #sunset #hiking #live #mountains
2. Angelo Mendoza (@angelomendo)
From the break of dawn, to the coming of the storm, for Angelo, it’s not just about amazing views. It’s about capturing the essence of a place, and being able to communicate it through a single photograph.
3. Danna Pena (@dannapena)

6. Enzo Cruz (@iamenzocruz)
If you’re in doubt about the beauty of the world, Enzo’s feed will remind you why you shouldn’t. His feed is a mix of dreamy landscapes and breathtaking views — places you never thought of visiting, until you see it on his Instagram.
I remember my boss asking me “what would you do if you knew you wouldn't fail?" during my job interview. I remember giving a generic answer, an answer I knew I didn't mean. I remember thinking “..maybe I just didn't unerstand the question" Many years go by and I now have the opportunity to ask applicants the same question, and I have come to realise one thing: I gave a generic response not because I didn’t understand the question, it was because I didn’t understand myself.
7. Rachel Halili (@rachelhalili)
Rach doesn’t just take snapshots of “Instagram-worthy” tourist destinations, but she also truly sees the beauty of every single place. Being one of the brains (and beauties) of the famous, @wtn_wheretonext, it’s no surprise that her travels inspire us to finally plan adventures of our own.
8. Kelsey (@kelseaswim)
Kelsey is the local explorer we all aspire to be. Her sunny profile consists of palm trees, white sand beaches, and pink skies – the Philippines in all of its tropical glory. One look at her feed and you’re off to the nearest beach, you really don’t have to travel far to see something wonderful.
9. Aaron Palabyab (@apalabyab)
You wouldn’t know how many colors the sky could possibly be until you see Aaron’s photos. Follow the award-winning photographer and world traveler’s adventures through his blog and Instagram, and see how the world transforms with the click of his camera.
10. Ayen dela Torre (@ayenonlife)
