Bounce, a luggage storage app, conducted a study to reveal the most popular travel destinations around the world. They used popular app TikTok to reveal this data.
Bounce used hashtags and views on TikTok to see which destinations received the most traction. New York City got a total of 59.5 billion views on TikTok, putting it in second place. Last year, New York City was ranked number 1 in Bounce’s study, but Bounce notes that the city still attracts “a large number of viewers on the platform and could well reclaim the top spot in the years to come”.
The first overtaking place goes to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. The city received over 81.8 billion hashtags. Dubai is a city known for its wealth and luxury, and continues to be a sought-after destination for vacationers who want to soak up the sun. Its growing popularity could be due to the fact that it houses the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa.
Taking bronze is London, England. The city overtook Istanbul in third place last year. London received 36.8 billion views on TikTik. With Big Ben, the London Eye, museums and galleries steeped in history, West End shows and beautiful parks, there really is something for every holidaymaker on a trip to London.
