While you might know it for its viral dancing and swish cooking tutorials, TikTok has some pretty great travel inspo, too. From whistlestop guides to ‘did you knows’ about wonders of the world, it’s an excellent medium for getting you in the mood for some serious jet-setting.
If you’ve ever seen TikTok’s travel content, you’ll know that some places tend to get featured more than others. It’s usually the really iconic and/or visually spectacular ones that pop up the most. And now, by collecting data about location tags and cross-referencing that info with TripAdvisor reviews, a study from travel website Next Vacay has figured which attractions really are the ‘biggest on TikTok’.
And top of the pile is… Disney World Orlando. Seeming to confirm suspicions that most users of TikTok are, in fact, teenagers, Disney’s flagship Floridian theme park and resort has raked in a whopping 8.6 billion views on the platform.
Next up comes the Burj Khalifa in Dubai with 1.9 billion views, which is no wonder really. It’s the world’s tallest skyscraper – how could you go there and not make a TikTok to show off to your mates? Third in the list with 719 million views is the Eiffel Tower – because let’s be honest, sights don’t really get much more picturesque or iconic than Paris’s iron lady.
