Disney World ranked the most popular attraction for 2022 – 4.5/5 stars

Known as the ‘happiest place on Earth’, Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, takes the number one spot on our list as the most popular attraction in 2022 with a whopping 8.6 billion views on TikTok. Magic Kingdom Park, where fairytale dreams come true, is best visited during the winter months as the weather cools down, crowds become thinner, and you’ll find shorter lines for the best rides. With 20 million visitors every year and a 4.5/5 Tripadvisor rating score, you can see why so many are jetting off to this magical destination that should be on the top of your bucket list.

Best time to visit: Winter.

# 2 Burj Khalifa, UAE – 4.5/5 stars

Taking the second-place spot on our list for the most popular bucket list experiences for 2022 is the Burj Khalifa, in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, with an impressive 1.9 billion views on TikTok. The living wonder, also considered the world’s tallest building, sees 6.2 million visitors every year. From breathtaking views, and immersive experiences, to mouth-watering meals, there’s plenty in store for you at the world’s tallest skyscraper. The best time to go would be around dusk if you want to enjoy mesmerising sunset views and live performances. With a 4.5/5 Tripadvisor rating score, it’s easy to see how the utterly iconic and record-breaking building with the highest outdoor observation deck in the world is at the top of any traveller’s bucket list.

Best time to visit: Winter.

# 3 Eiffel Tower, France – 4.5/5 stars

The Eiffel Tower is the third most popular attraction to visit in 2022 with a staggering 719.6 million TikTok views. Each year, the iconic Parisian landmark attracts 7 million visitors to take in the breathtaking sights. Built in 1887, countless tourists have enjoyed the structure in all weathers, but the best time to visit is during the fall, when the lines for the tower are much shorter and the slight chill in the air means you can flaunt your cosiest, Parisian-inspired outfits. With a 4.5 out 5 Tripadvisor score, it comes as no surprise that it is the most popular attraction in France and one of the most iconic tourist destinations in the world.

Best time to visit: Fall.

#4 Taj Mahal, India – 4.5/5 stars

The fourth most popular experience to visit in 2022 is the Taj Mahal in India, with a whopping 377.4 million TikTok views. Famous as a symbol of love, the magnificent monument sees 8 million visitors every year. A trip to Agra and feasting your eyes on the Taj Mahal is a must for a spring vacation. We’d recommend visiting between March to June when temperatures are warm, crowds are manageable, and you can avoid the heat or the summer rainy season. The absolute best time to go is right at sunrise. The building changes color as the sun rises above it, creating a once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunity. With a 4.5/5 Tripadvisor rating score, there’s no denying that this historic building is a must-see in 2022.

Best time to visit: Spring.

#5 Grand Canyon, USA – 5/5 stars

Rounding off the top five is the Grand Canyon in Arizona, known for its impressive deep canyons and breathtaking views. An average of 5 million people flock to Grand Canyon National Park’s rim every year. But the best times to visit the most well-known national park in America are March through May when daytime temperatures aren’t as hot, rainfall averages are low, and the avalanche of summer tourists have yet to arrive, so you’ll have better chances of finding good deals and availability for hotels, campgrounds, and tours. With 273.2 million views on TikTok and a 5 out 5 Tripadvisor score, it’s not hard to see why this majestic natural beauty should make it to your bucket list.

Best time to visit: Spring.
