Of all the 25 fastest growing tourist destinations, 24 of them are in Asia, with Cairo, Egypt being the only place that is in another continent, Africa. The Asian countries include Indonesia, Thailand, Dubai, Cambodia and South Korea. India is the country with the highest number of fastest tourist destinations, with Jaipur, Chennai, Agra, Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata all featuring in the top 25.

Some of these growing destinations hold some of the world’s most historical and famous landmarks, despite not having as many tourists compared to other places. On the outskirts of Cairo lie Giza’s pyramid complex whilst Agra, India has the Taj Mahal, one of the most famous and photographed buildings in the world. Cities such as Singapore also show off its most iconic hotel, Marina Bay Sands. We all recognise these buildings, but is it your turn to get to them first before these locations become another tourist attraction everybody has been to?

Emma Grimster, spokesperson for TravelSupermarket, comments:

Everybody wants to get that Instagram-worthy shot of their travels that makes friends and family go wow. However, the increasing connectedness of the world, both with travel and social media makes it even harder to visit a location no one else has seen before.

“Our research reveals that if you want to be the first to go somewhere before it gets really popular, Asia is the place to go, as tourist numbers are expected to increase up to 100% in some countries (Jakarta, Indonesia) by 2025. Denpasar, Indonesia is close behind making this country one to keep an eye on over the next few years. It’s also no wonder the destinations included are on the up with tourists, as the cost of living is often much lower than in European destinations, tourists are getting much more for their money when they travel further abroad to these up and coming locations.“
