Wish You Were Here: Local Travel Instagrammers to Follow

who to follow on instagram

Jet setting, wanderlust, and exploration – isn’t that the dream? However responsibility and bills continue to call, and we only get two to four weeks of vacation a year to navigate far-away lands, exotic food, beaches, and museums. But thanks to these amazing Indonesian explorers, no need to search who to follow on Instagram- we can live vicariously through their Instagram accounts!

Alex’s feed is the go-to guide to Indonesian culture. He has a sensitivity for people and an anthropological curiosity. And he constantly shares great insights into the multifaceted heritage of the country along with his photos. Aside from being a talented photographer, we would even go as far as saying, if you’re somewhere Alexander has been (and you have 3G), skip the guide books, Alex’s IG feed will do.

Kadek Arini is a young travel blogger (not even 23!) with a whole lot of gusto, and is “one who never stop(ped) dreaming to travel the world”. When she isn’t working her day job (she’s an architect, so cool!), she is constantly pushing the envelope, trying new things and exploring the world. She also has a quirky, practical, laid-back style that is always rugged-cute and fits in anywhere she might be.

Based in Bandung but always on the go, Putri’s photos make us fall in love just a little bit more. Because of what an Instagram legend she is, Putri often collaborates with other amazing Instagrammers from all over the world, so in addition to the multitude of adventures she embarks on, we are privy to images from lots of other eyes too!
