Singapore failed to top or make the Top 10 of the most Instagrammable places in the world this year.

The city-state fell to the 13th spot out of 50 countries after topping last year’s list, according to travel publication Big 7 Travel which published the rankings on Sunday. 

Milan swooped in first, followed by London and Paris. Other cities that made the Top 10 include Istanbul, New York, Nepal, Chicago, Bali, Sri Lanka and Sydney.

The rankings were determined based on the cities’ total number of Instagram hashtags and TikTok views.

Singapore secured more than 41 million hashtags on Instagram and 11 billion views on TikTok as compared to Milan’s over 22 million Instagram hashtags and 97 billion TikTok views.

Other Southeast Asian spots saw Phuket (27th), Kuala Lumpur (29th) and Vietnam’s Ha Long Bay (48th).
