International tourist numbers surged to nearly 1.1 billion in 2013 in defiance of global economic troubles, with Asia-Pacific destinations enjoying the fastest growth.

The rise in tourism coincided with sluggish economic growth worldwide and unrest in top destinations such as Egypt.

International tourist arrivals rose at the fastest rate in the Asia-Pacific region, where numbers were up by six per cent to 248 million.

Southeast Asia performed best, with arrivals up 10 per cent.
