With travel restrictions easing, more people are visiting popular destinations across the world. But according to TikTok, you don’t have to go far to see the most popular of them all.
A report by flight deal service Next Vacay has found that Disney World in Orlando is TikTok’s favorite travel destination, receiving over 8.6 billion views on the social media platform. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that a youth-focused location would be popular in an app used by millennials and zoomers. With so many things to see and do at Disney World, it’s expected that there’d also be a ton of content — like itinerary ideas and budget hacks — leading to such a staggering number of views.
In second place is Dubai’s Burj Khalifa with 1.9 billion views, while in the third spot is a classic travel hotspot, the Eiffel Tower, receiving over 719 million views. Meanwhile, the fourth most popular destination on TikTok is the Taj Mahal with 377 million views, and completing the top five is the Grand Canyon at 273 million views.
