If you’re looking for a Labor Day trip, our Instagram followers at @ForbesTravelGuide have a suggestion for you: Santorini. The picture-perfect Greek island racked up the most likes on our Instagram account this month.
The winning photo, above, was shot by Jakarta, Indonesia-based Christina Tan, aka @sassychris1, who describes her photography style as clean, elegant and vivid. “I was waiting for the famous sunset in Oia, Santorini, to photograph it, but when I looked at the other direction where the sun was glaring, I saw the most beautiful light shining over the flowers,” she says. “I quickly snapped it before concentrating on the sunset again.”
Traveling to Santorini was long a dream for Tan. “It has always been on my bucket list, even when I was not into photography,” she says. “I saw the photos everywhere and decided I have to go there to capture its beauty.”
