The Colombo city has been named the ‘must-photograph’ travel destination of 2019, in a study.

Research of more than 1.3 million social media posts found the Asian city is the location travellers most want to take a picture of, followed by Yokohama in Japan and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park in Uganda.

The Isle of Harris in Scotland also made the list, along with Baden-Baden in Germany’s Black Forest.

Commissioned by Huawei to celebrate the launch of its new P Smart 2019 device, the research also uncovered a new-found appetite among young Brits for lesser-known destinations.

Just under half of 18-25 year olds now look for places their friends haven’t been, with more than a third saying they want to be the first to find new travel hotspots, take the photo and stick it online.

    Our parliamentarians are so photogenic to make the cover and headline of all zoology magazines.

    There is no doubt that I love my country. But a "must-photograph" travel destination is something unbelievable and unimaginable compared to many other really impressive cities around the world. Dose it another announcement by the same party declared once our finance minister as the World's best?
