After receiving some great travel tips from around the world, we are ready to reveal the one that earned the trip to Rome.
We are delighted to announce that Shuo Huang has won a weekend in Rome thanks to his excellent Local Insight about the Lion’s Head viewing point in Cape Town, South Africa.
Over 200 entries were submitted via Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and email. Disappointingly for the purists, nobody entered using telegram or carrier pigeon.
It was difficult picking a winner from such a fine selection but our eventual choice was, we all agreed, the consummate insight. The kind of tip-off that transforms a memorable trip into an unforgettable one.
#Localinsights: the best place to appreciate the sunrise over Cape Town and Table Mountain is a 45 minute hike in the dark to the top of Lion's Head. (Thanks Shuo, for this fantasic picture and insight). #travel #instagood #follow #followme #photooftheday #picoftheday #happy #beautiful #love #summer #instalike
Honourable mentions go to Liz Slade and Dave Ireland who submitted the following two insights respectively.
About 20km north of Kaikura in The South Island of New Zealand is this unassuming little caravan, between the highway and the South Pacific. The Mauri lady only sells crayfish and chips which are caught by her brother and father. (Thank you Liz on FB for adding to our #Localinsights). #localinsights #travel #instagood #follow #followme #photooftheday #picoftheday #foodporn #beautiful #love #summer #instalike
