The World in 2050

By 2050, most regions of the world will be predominantly urban as 193,107 new city dwellers are added to the world’s urban population every day. This translates to slightly more than two people every two seconds reflecting that the world’s urban population will swell to almost 5 bn in 2030 and 6.4 bn by 2050.

Cities have long been the centre of tourist activity, from the early times of civilisation through to their highly developed state in the global economy. Cities hold a particular fascination for tourists, from the vast highly developed metropolitan cities like Los Angeles to small historic cities like Durham in the North East of England (Yeoman 2011).
