For air travellers, the two major factors are the feel of efficiency and modernity (read sophistication). More than that, the millennials amongst the Indian tourist crowd also love to Instagram everything they like. So, creating ‘story’ is the new fad. While the natural landscapes when exposed too much on social media loses its charm to a major section of the crowd, the manmade architectures and the modern structures are meant to be shared on the social channels, hence making them more popular among the travellers. So here we bring to you the top five airports which are most Instagrammable according to Indian travellers:-
