Which hashtags to use for Paris & France?

Are you traveling to France? We recently had the best time in Paris and did some epic activities like an amazing Paris Lunch with a view  

After visiting one of the most instagrammable cities in the world we went to Instagram but were unsure of what hashtags to use.

If you are in the same boat, look no further, we have you covered with the best French hash tags for Instagram in 2019.

And of course check out our Instagram for some French inspiration. We also have you covered if you want a perfect Paris Instagram Caption!

Best France Hash tags for Instagram

If you don’t want your pictures to go into the abyss, it is necessary after your France trip to use hash tags which will actually get you reach,

Hashtags on Instagram? Are they important?

Hash tags are a way to gain more followers on Instagram in 2019. Why? Because it means you get more reach aka eyes on your profile.

This is one way you can achieve Instagram Superstardom! If only if were that simple! But we can tell you it will help and if it will help then why not?

In accordance with the policies of Instagram, you can use up to 30 Hash Tags

How many you should use is a HOT TOPIC and highly debated amongst influencers.

While some people truly believe in the power of using all thirty hash tags others claim this is a sure fire way to the dreaded shadow ban aka nobody seeing any of your posts due to a punishment of Instagram. Basically what it means is that you are in Instagram jail.

As winding up in Instagram jail is NOT FUN we would suggest using around 20 hash tags on our Instagram posts.

France Hashtags for Instagram

Which France hashtags you should use depends on two questions.

This is the same formula we use in a Couple Hashtags so if you are a travel couple like us you might what to check it out.

The first question is how many followers you have and the second is what is your engagement rate.

1. How many followers do you have?

How many followers do you have? This will answer the size of hash tag we can go after:

  • 0 – 20,000 – Aim for hash tags less than 10,000 tags
  • 20,000 – 40,000 – Aim for hash tags less than 50,000 tags
  • 50,000 – 100,000 – Aim for hash tags less than 100,000 tags
  • 100,000 – 300,000 – Aim for hash tags less than 300,000 tags
  • 300,000 + – Hit them big tags up!

2. What is your engagement rate?

If you have 50,000 followers but 0 engagement it will be impossible to appear in the 100,000 hash tags.


Appearing at the top of hash tag depends on how many followers like your post AND how fast they do so.

Analyse your engagement and if it is under average go for less competitive hash tags than the above suggested.

Should I do France hashtags alone?

In our opinion, you should mix France hash tags with other hash tags that are relevant to your picture.

Relevance here is key. Note: You should not hash tag #cutecats if there is no cat in your photo!

Use around 5-10 picture hash tags, 5-10 location hash tags and 5-10 action hash tags based on what you are doing.
