Using TikTok for travel tips

While many videos on the app can serve as inspiration for travel destinations, users should always do their own research

Jul 26, 2023

TikTok videos tagged with #travel (and its multiple counterparts) have garnered more than 230 billion views on the app. Travel-related content ranges from displays of luxurious getaways to accounts dedicated to sharing affordable flights.

Key takeaways

  • TikTok is a great way to learn more about traveling in a way that may be more comforting for anxious travelers who do have limited travel experience and do not know what to expect;
  • TikTok is also a great place to find suggestions for the best restaurants or tourist attractions in a particular country or city. Users can get advice from locals or other international travelers online;
  • While much of TikTok’s popularity and greater appeal stems from the app’s short-form content and quick virality, experts warn users that the app can create a space where posts don’t give a balanced view of a destination or experience.
