The Six Fix: A Traveler’s Guide to the Most Photographed Landmarks (Part 1 of 2)

When technology boomed and smartphones were easily made available for people with a few bucks to spare, taking photos has since been a part of almost anyone’s daily life. Keeping a memory in your pocket or simply going back to a beautiful sight at the touch of your fingertips has never been easier. We have scavenged the web and picked out the most photographed landmarks:


1. Angkor Wat, Cambodia. This is one of the most famous temples not just in Asia but quite possibly in a person’s travel history. Best shot during the sunrise when the rays hover at the temple’s peaks and a silhouette forms on the lake before it.


2. Eiffel Tower, Paris. Nothing symbolizes romance much like The Eiffel Tower does. Best shot when you’re feeling a little dreamy and are willing to snuggle cuddle under it for a picture-perfect snap. 


3. Machu Picchu, Peru. Its scenic dry-stone walls and panoramic view are just some of the reasons it’s an all-time favorite not just for photos but also on the bucket list. Best shot from a high altitude giving you an overlooking view of this majestic spot. 


4. Grand Canal, Venice, Italy. Another spot that reeks of romance—pun perhaps intended—the Grand Canal is best shot from the bridge so you can include the gondolas sailing through it.


5. Kayangan Lake, Coron, Philippines. Found in Coron and not in El Nido, you have to take the extra steps going up so you can take the best shot showing the lake’s panoramic entirety.


6. The Northern Lights, Iceland. While this is not a landmark per se, many people have been flocking to Iceland and other countries such as Canada, Finland, and Norway to catch a glimpse of the Aurora Borealis. Best shot on winter months and when it’s dark with partly clear skies
