With so many of us looking to social media for travel inspiration, it’s definitely worth having a swipe through TikTok if you can’t figure out where to go for your next holiday destination.

After all, it can be tough when it comes to narrowing down destinations to visit throughout the summer.

With so many breathtaking travel options out there (and so little holiday time to experience them all), you’ll want to make sure you’re making the most of your time off throughout the summer months.

The good news is TikTok has been working hard to give its users the opportunity to “travel” the world – without leaving the comforts of their home. In fact, it’s one of the best social media platforms for sharing travel-related content and seeking inspiration for your next holiday.

TikTok has partnered with tourism boards from cities and countries around the world, including Los Angeles, Seoul, Japan, Vietnam, Indonesia and Malaysia – meaning you can scope out a destination (in the form of fun, short video clips) before booking flights.

Simply search for tags like #ThisisJapan, #VisitSeoul, #HelloDanang, #ColorfulMedan and #ExperiencePenang before planning your next vacay.

And What If You've Already Planned Your Vacation for the Summer?

With so many of us looking to social media for travel inspiration, it’s definitely worth having a swipe through TikTok if you can’t figure out where to go for your next holiday destination.

Don't forget to share snippets of your travels with your fellow TikTokers by using hashtags and participating in any duets relevant to your travel destination and holiday. Get creative with all the different filter and sticker options, and, most importantly, have fun on TikTok while you're traveling! 

You can also encourage your family and friends to check out your TikTok videos, so they can keep up to date with everything you're experiencing abroad.

If you're kicking around Dubai this summer and don't have vacation plans, feel free to share your adventures on TikTok (and use the hashtags #tiktoktravel and #ThisIsDubai) so others can find out about cool things to do in the city and connect with you.

Whether it's shopping at the Dubai Mall or planning a staycation, don't forget to share it on TikTok. 

Recently, TikTok recently ran an initiative to encourage travelers to creatively capture and share their travel moments with their followers. The global campaign, known as #TikTokTravel, concluded with an overwhelming response from users across the region and throughout the world.

What does this mean for holidaymakers and adventure-seekers this summer? It’s definitely worth sharing your travel-related content on TikTok this summer, especially if you’re looking to rack up the engagement on your videos and feel passionate about inspiring other globetrotters.

Wait… What’s TikTok?

Ask your Gen-Z son or daughter. They’re definitely familiar with the app, as it’s extremely popular with the demographic.

Launched in 2017, TikTok can be described as the love child of six-second video-sharing platform Vine (R.I.P.) and Snapchat. But even that doesn’t do it justice, as it’s tough to sum up the platform in a few words.

It's a young, fresh and provides its users with tons of filter and sticker options. You can read more about the platform here, as we share everything you need to know about TikTok.

Whether you’re a plan of travel content or love sharing videos with your friends (and interacting with other young, like-minded creative people) be sure to download the TikTok app here for endless amounts of entertainment and fun in the form of short video.

Don't have TikTok yet? You're missing out! Be sure to download it from either the Apple app store or the Google Play store so you don't miss out on my travel content this summer.
