Jakarta, Indonesia is poised to see the biggest surge in tourists; the city had 3.6 million visitors in 2017 and that is expected to double to 6.2 million by 2025.

While Indonesian tourist hotspots like Bali may get all the attention, the bustling capital has its own allure, bringing together people and cultures from across the country’s 17,000 islands.

Around the world, famous destinations like Amsterdam, Barcelona, Venice and even Mount Everest are feeling the strain from surging visitor numbers.
