Colombo, Sri Lanka

Seven of the top ten fastest growing cities by visitor number over the last six years are in Asia. Sri Lanka’s capital city, Colombo, leads the pack with a 21.1 % growth in visitor numbers.
Like many industrialising countries balancing the growth of a city with the need of its people and the requirements of the millions of visitors and tourists is a difficult task. For its religious and cultural residents the new prosperity also brings an upheaval in their way of life, and for some who do not fit into the portrait of the new wealthy and prosperous elite, it is a bus ride back out to the fringes of the city.
