Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport is 2012 top Instagram location in the world

Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok was the most Instagrammed location in the world this year with over 100,000 filtered snaps taken there.

The second most popular location to take photos with the app was also in Bangkok: Siam Paragon mall.

This should come as no surprise to Thailand social media watchers – three locations in Bangkok made it into the top 15 Instagrammed locations in 2011, as reported by Coconuts Bangkok.

The photo-sharing social network revealed the top 10 most Instagrammed locations on its blog yesterday.
