Exploring the world without every leaving the comfort of home has gotten easier, thanks to virtual reality apps and social platforms like Snapchat. We've already shared the Instagram accounts you need to be following (get on it!), but we've got a whole new list for you. These savvy snappers have perfected the art of filtering and going behind-the-scenes of some of the world's most intriguing destinations.
Pro tip: We included the Snapcodes for all of these accounts for easy following. To add them as a friend, take a photo or screenshot of their code below on your phone, and go to "Add by Snapcode" in the Snapchat app. Go ahead, live vicariously.
