Global destinations where tourism is growing at a fast pace

Published on : Wednesday, June 28, 2017

UNWTOAccording to the UNWTO, Sierra Leone is the world’s fastest growing travel destination.

 

This little West African nation welcomed 310 per cent more overseas travelers in 2016, compared to 2015, which is a steep rise after the country was declared Ebola-free in November 2015.

 

Just 24,000 people visited Sierra Leone in 2015 and although the UNWTO doesn’t have complete data for the year, it is expected to reach 74,400 for 2016.

 

Sierra Leone offers amazing beaches, idyllic villages and smiling people. It’s also an unlikely option for cycle tourism. The West Africa Cycle Challenge takes riders from Bo, Sierra Leone, to Monrovia, Liberia, raising money for the charity Street Child along the way. Five other destinations in the world where tourism is booming are: South Korea, Moldova, Kiribati, Madagascar and Slovakia.
