"I like to do a mix of things both touristy and off the beaten path. The fox sanctuary is one of the things you have to go looking for. It’s not on the typical lists in city guidebooks, but if you do some digging, you’ll find a lot of these unique experiences in Japan." @humminglion, Miyagi Zao Fox Sanctuary, Japan passionpassport

"I grew up in the mountains, so I’ve always enjoyed spending time among them. I could walk for hours and not meet anyone. Sometimes, I like to just sit and observe things on my own; I don’t necessarily need to interact with other people because the mountains make me feel like I’m with someone else even when it’s only me." @foxsbackpack, Val Gardena Gröden, Italy passionpassport

"Many families in Guangzhou live in these kind of city-villages within main cities. I noticed this one on a map because of the green park in the middle of the village. It stood out to me and I thought it would look amazing captured from above. But when I flew above it I was surprised to find that the buildings were actually abandoned, brought to life by the growing green plants." @nk7 Guangzhou, China passionpassport

"Before moving to Colorado, I’d never really traveled anywhere and had no interest in photography. But then I experienced actually being in nature. It makes you feel so good, so free. You don’t really think about much except what’s right there in front of you. I wanted to share that with everyone else, so I picked up a camera." @j.scud Crystal Mill, Colorado, USA passionpassport

"There are thousands of Greek islands and I chose to visit Milos because of its laid-back atmosphere, beautiful coastline, and cool history (the Venus de Milo statue is from here). Of all the beaches I've visited in the world, I would put Sarakiniko, with its moon-like stone-scape, at the top of my list." @wrenees Sarkiniko, Greece passionpassport

Ijen, one of the largest acidic crater lakes in the world, sits amid the rugged landscapes and volcanos that make up East Java.

"This picture is deceiving, as there were thousands of people trekking through these gates on the last day of 2016, each hoping to bring in the new year with blessings. Even so, the two-and-a-half mile walk through the gates and up thousands of uneven steps was well worth it to see the city of Kyoto sprawled out before me." @courage.mydearheart Fushimi Inari Shrine, Kyoto, Japan passionpassport

"I had a really bad day at work and my girlfriend said, “You’ve been spending too much time in the office. Let’s get a little creative. Why don’t we go buy a camera?” After that I started going for long walks — there’s so many hidden gems in this city, little cafes, pretty flower beds, charming streets. It’s been three years, and now London doesn’t just feel like a new home. It feels like home." @dr_difilippo London, United Kingdom passionpassport

"As I traveled through India by train, from Mumbai to the countryside, I was surprised by the diversity of the country. The highlight of my trip was visiting the Taj Mahal. I got there early and waited amongst crowds of people. When I passed the entry gate, the Taj Mahal appeared suddenly and its sheer enormity took my breath away. When I moved closer, I was even more impressed by the minute details that covered it." @zacherydavid_ Taj Mahal, India passionpassport

"Along this rocky stretch of the Italian Riviera, green mountains and high coasts seem to chase one another through a landscape dotted with magnificent terraces, huge caves, white beaches, and colorful villages. While walking Via Dell'Amore, the path that connects the five villages, you breathe the scent of maritime pine, wild fennel, and strawberries, all the while watching the clouds reflect in the blue water. The Cinque Terre is breathtaking in every way." @gabdetails Manarola, Italy passionpassport

"Architecture and geometrical forms inspire me. In buildings like libraries or museums, stairs are typically in the middle of the room, perfectly symmetrical with the space around it. But at the Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec (BAnQ), the spiral is in the corner. Similar to this library's unconventional design, I wanted to break the rules with this picture. I let the room's design, its asymmetry, guide my picture." @raph.chapot Montreal, Quebec passionpassport
