The Most Viewed Travel YouTube Videos of 2016

As other video platforms have grown their audiences during the past year, YouTube’s audience remains one of the largest and the ease of sharing a YouTube video is what draws millions of travelers and brands to click, watch and share. YouTube is still the host platform for many marketing campaigns and brands see it as a place to expand on their storytelling rather than quicker clips for other social platforms.
