10 hidden photo spots in Asia you won’t find in any guidebook

Photography is an essential part of modern travel, and great photography doesn’t always come easy, especially if you have to queue for hours/elbow people out of the way/wake up at sunrise to get your shot with that super-famous monument/painting/dog statue. Of course, there is actually a wealth of beautiful, hidden and Instagrammable photo spots all over Asia, so we called on WanderSnap social editor Pauline De Leon and the network’s photographers to give us some insider tips on where to go for the best shots.
