Fastest Growing Cities

1. Tokyo, Japan
Up 47.1% (3.75 million)

“This ever-changing metropolis of over 12 million is perhaps the most gorgeous ugly city in the world. It out-Michelins every city in the world … Tokyo’s nightlife is a drinker’s delight.” – Timothy Hornyak.

2. Lima, Peru
Up 29.1% (3.79 million)

“Peel back the foggy layers and you’ll find pre-Columbian temples sitting silently amid condominium high-rises. What Lima lacks in attractiveness, it makes up with a huge array of downright literary experiences.”

3. Mumbai. India
Up 26.7% (2.98 million)

“A frantic melange of India’s extremes, it is the country’s financial powerhouse and its vogue centre of fashion, film and after-dark frolics.”

4. Djerba (Jerba), Tunisia
Up 24.6% (2.64 million)

“The island of Jerba has an intoxicating mixture of sandy beaches, desert heat and wonderfully idiosyncratic architecture. To the classically inclined, the mere mention of the island’s name conjures images of Homer’s Land of the Lotus Eaters, a place so seductive that it’s impossible to leave.”

5. Taipei, Taiwan
Up 24.8% (5.56 million)

“In a veritable blink of the eye, Taipei has gone from an ugly duckling of Asia to one of the region’s most dynamic, comfortable and liveable cities. Most important to the intrepid traveller, Taipei is also fun.”
