Dubai topped the world’s most popular tourist destinations on the Chinese social networking and video sharing platform Tik Tok platform, according to the results of the Travel Index 2022, released by American travel booking website Bounce.
The index tracks the most popular tourist destinations in the world based on the number of views videos about each destination have received on Tik Tok over the past year.
Dubai emerged as the most-viewed destination on the popular social media platform by far compared to second place globally in the Travel Index 2021. Views for videos featuring the hashtag ‘Dubai’ totaled over 81.8 billion.
Placed second in last year’s index, Dubai usurped the top spot from New York City with 59.5 billion views. Third-placed London had 36.8 billion views on TikTok, overtaking Istanbul.
“Synonymous with wealth and luxury, Dubai has become one of the most sought-after destinations for holidaymakers who want to soak up the sun in style. This ultra-modern city is home to some of the world’s most astounding architectures,” Bounce said.
