Suvarnabhumi-International-Airport

Instagram, the photo-sharing app, has released a list of the most photographed places in the world via the app in 2012, with Suvarnabhumi Airport topping the chart.According to IG, over 100,000 photos were taken via Instagram at Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok, Thailand, over the last year, making it a surprise winner.Interestingly another Bangkok landmark, the Siam Paragon shopping mall, took second place in Instagram’s most photographed places in 2012

Overall, locations in the US were popular among Instagram users, with American landmarks occupying seven of the top ten locations, including five in Southern California. Strangely enough, landmarks that have been a traditional favorite for photographers such as the Statue of Liberty in New York, the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin or London’s Big Ben did not appear on the list, though Paris’s Eiffel Tower did make an appearance in eighth place — behind Dodger Stadium and LAX.

The World Wide Watch.


Sure, it’s a middle class problem but ever get annoyed by having to change the time on your watch when you enter a new country?  It might not be an issue that afflicts those of us who don’t go travelling that often but this ingenious watch is still perfect for those who wish that they did.  The “All Around the World” watch boasts eight hour hands, which resemble landmarks in major cities. For example, if you’re in New York then you’d use the Statue of Liberty as your hour marker. Minutes are always marked by a pigeon. You know, because they’re a given in every city.

Here’s the full list of cities and landmarks:

Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco

Salt Lake Temple, Utah

Sears Tower, Chicago

Statue of Liberty, New York

Big Ben, London

The Eiffel Tower, Paris

Istambul’s minarets

Red Square, Moscow

There are only 100 watches and each costs £150. You can find out more info, including where to buy here.

There are so many things folks can do in New York, but one of the first things that newcomers tend to do is take a tour.  But recently someone out in the city had the smart idea to just film a tour… and this isn’t one from a bus, a bike, or a boat.  A small camera was strapped to a professional grade remote controlled air plane, and let loose around the city.  Check the video below, the images they captured are pretty dope.
