#SantaMonicaPier a 2012 Instagram Favorite

Southern California destinations—including the Santa Monica Pier—dominate the list of the most Instagrammed places in the world.

The Santa Monica Pier ranks with the Eiffel Tower, Disneyland Park and Times Square as the most popular instagrammed places in the world in 2012.

Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport "surprised" the online photo sharing website by topping the list with more than 100,000 photos, according to the company's blog.

But it's no surprise to us the historic pier, with its colorful amusement park, retro sign and sunny weather, also made the list. We even think it looks good without a filter.

Here's the full list:

  • Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) ท่าอากาศยานสุวรรณภูมิ in Bangkok, Thailand
  • Siam Paragon (สยามพารากอน) shopping mall in Bangkok, Thailand
  • Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California
  • Times Square in New York City
  • AT&T Park in San Francisco
  • Los Angeles International Airport (LAX)
  • Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles
  • Eiffel Tower in Paris
  • Staples Center in Los Angeles
  • Santa Monica Pier in Los Angeles
