Here is how Tik Tok can be more than just a fun app but an inspiration for your next travel destination.
Thanks to extra time spent on our phones and unleashing our creative juices, Tik Tok has recently become one of the biggest social media platforms alongside Instagram. It will most likely continue to trend as we continue to stay at home. Everyone loves a new social trend, so it’s no surprise that Tik Tok will most likely stay relevant. With dance videos that are accessible for all age groups, Tik Tok is actually teaching or inspiring us with something new. Passing time during quarantine has never been this fun. I even caved and made an account to learn new dances, how to make whipped coffee, peanut butter chocolate chip cookies and where I want to travel next.

First, it can be confusing. Before making and watching videos, when you first download the app it will list categories that might interest you. Check those, then the app will demonstrate a how-to video. Now, you do not need an account to watch on Tik Tok, however, if you’d like to make videos, save drafts, follow users, favorite videos, or comment then you do need to sign up. I personally didn’t sign up for a few days until I wanted to watch a video on making chocolate chip peanut butter cookies, only to realize that I couldn’t find the video even when I searched for it without an account.

Using Tik Tok for travel
Since Tik Tok is video-based, it’s the perfect platform for trip planning, getting ideas on where to go, what to do when you’re there and where you want to stay. Usually YouTube might be the IT platform for video travel guides but Tik Tok is actually better because the videos are shorter. They get straight to the point, and it’s easier to narrow down to a certain country/city. While we are all home during quarantine, this is a great outlet to be inspired on where to go next or just admire countries that are rarely visited. Search hashtags, including: #traveldiaries, #travelbucketlist, #traveling.
Everyday people are discovered from dancing, sharing recipes, reviews, or participating in challenges. Many celebrities have jumped on the Tik Tok bandwagon: JLo, Hailey and Justin Bieber, Jason Derulo, David Dobrik, and many more. But it’s not only about being silly, dancing or cooking. Traveling virtually through videos is fun but it’s second best since we’re unable to visit places right. Make sure to follow @jetsettimes and see how we take traveling to the next level through Tik Tok.
