It’s a new year, and travelers are gearing up for fresh trips and vacations. While older travelers are still tapping in with travel agents, younger folks are using ChatGPT and social media for inspiration on where to head next. 

Black TikTok influencers are unique because not only do they shine a light on new destinations but they do so through the Black travel lens. Their content focuses on where to go and what to do while highlighting safety concerns, culture shock, and other aspects unique to the Black travel experience. Here are a few Black Tiktok influencers keeping you updated on the hottest destinations to visit and explore.
