Colombo named the ‘must-photograph’ travel destination for 2019

2019 Jan 14

After conducting research on more than 1.3 million social media posts, it was found that Sri Lanka’s city of Colombo is the location travelers most want to capture by camera!

Colombo was followed by Yokohama in Japan and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park in Uganda. The research was commissioned by Huawei to celebrate the launch of its new P Smart 2019 device.

With the new generation of travelers, ‘Instagrammable’ is at the top of the criteria when planning travel around the world. This research shows us that Colombo fulfills the criteria to perfection!

This is further increased by the fact that research shows the current young generation is more interested in investing their money for traveling and experiencing new places than previous generations. 18 – 25 year olds in particular are fascinated by finding new places to explore and capture on their feeds, for the world to see.
