8Hotels has worked with a local fashion blogger, Emily Fang from Little Black Book, to create a Pyrmont Insta-Walk: the ultimate 45 minute stroll around the hotel and Sydney's Darling Harbour for taking photos. Socially conscious guests have been really excited by the prospect of finding beautiful snaps to make their own Instagram feed look even better.
