Topping the list was Chūō-ku, a neighbourhood in Osaka, Japan, which saw 7,000 per cent more Airbnb guests last year, compared to the previous one. The area is home to the ancient Osaka Castle, as well as lots of great street food.

Also on the list was Bangkok's Banglampoo area, whose most famous feature is Khaosan Road (a.k.a. the backpackers' mecca). But Airbnb will tell you there's plenty more to discover there.

There are cities that you might not expect. Areas in Atlanta and Dallas are proving very popular, as is a Buenos Aires neighbourhood not normally known for attracting tourists.
