Last year I wrote about how Instagram had become my guide to the city, and how more and more people are reaching for Instagram instead of Foursquare or Yelp when traveling. This actually had a huge impact on my recent trip to Cambodia as we travelled through Siem Reap: I had initially found a nice hotel through TripAdvisor, but I wasn't positive that my wife and I would love it. Right before we arrived, Kristine showed me a picture of a hotel she found on Instagram, and I immediately cancelled my previous reservation and reserved a room at the spot she found.
It was one of our favorite moments of the entire trip.
When I wrote my own article, there was no way to save posts, but of course a few months ago that feature was rolled out. This is further proof that plenty of other people are using Instagram just like I am…and that the service might not only eat Yelp and Foursquare's lunch, but even Pinterest's.
