South AfriKhan Insta-Travel Guides


The travel guide has evolved dramatically in the Internet age — long gone are the days when the hulking, mostly black-and-white, and quickly dated Lonely Planet was your sole resource to a destination. I love Instagramming my adventures (@BySarahKhan) with little details and tidbits of info for all the cool places I discover along the way. If ever you’ve seen my Insta-shots from any of my trips, you might have noticed that the captions all include the hashtag #SouthAfriKhanIn[insert destination here]. That’s because I want my feed to come in handy to anyone who might be planning their own trips to any regions I might have been to recently. Did a certain restaurant I posted in Mumbai catch your eye, and now that you’re thinking about visiting a few months later, you can’t remember what it was (and you’re not inclined to scroll through the hundreds of pics that have accumulated on my Instagram since? Don’t blame you!)? Just search for #southafrikhaninindia and you can sift through everything there. Or perhaps you’re thinking about visiting Turkey, and looking for a hotel to stay in in Cappadocia? Look up #southafrikhaninturkey and my gorgeous shots of Museum Hotel in Uchisar just might inspire you to book right away.
