Dubai – the 6th most visited city globally

Published on : Saturday, January 12, 2019

With nearly 16 million visitors last year, Dubai is the 6th most visited city in the world. The record-breaking number has encouraged the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing to aim for greater things; hence, Dubai now aims to welcome 25 million visitors by 2025, rivaling cities like Hong Kong, Bangkok and London.

 

The campaign is named “Only in Dubai”, and the goal is to increase the number of local experiences tourists get to witness in the Jewel City of the Gulf, thus increasing the number of repeated visits.

 

Besides the must-visit Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall, there are lots of other activities that one can enjoy during their stay!

 

A celebration of human ingenuity, Palm Jumeirah is a man-made island in the shape of a palm tree. It is home to a wide range of upscale hotels including the Fairmont, Waldorf Astoria, Atlantis and the Palm. Tourists and locals alike are amazed by the beautiful island.

 

In order to appreciate the true soul of this city, one has to visit its roots, and for that, one has to visit the Creek. The saltwater estuary is where the Bani Yas tribe first settled. The area is home to the Dubai Museum, as well as a labyrinth of alleyways of gold, textile and spices markets.

 

One of the oldest neighborhoods in the city, Al Fahidi historical neighborhood is a hallmark of Dubai’s tradition and culture. Here, visitors can witness the old alleyways and the traditional homes of the first Arab settlers. Besides these, Dubai boasts of a whole lot of eye-catching attractions which tourists can enjoy.
