Dubai becomes the only Middle Eastern city in the top ten list of Euromonitor International

Published on : Friday, December 6, 2019

Once again, the UAE has bagged the title of hosting one of the top 10 destinations in the world worth visiting.

 

In its latest publication, Euromonitor International unveiled the Top 100 City Destinations Ranking for 2019, naming Dubai as the first Middle East city and the seventh most visited city in the world, surpassing New York City, Kuala Lumpur, Istanbul and Delhi.

 

Dubai is the only Middle Eastern city in the top ten list with more than 16 million visitors projected for this year, going up from 15.9 m last year.

 

Euromonitor International’s city arrivals research covered more than 400 cities. The report highlights the top 100 cities based on 2018 international arrivals.

 

“Dubai continues to lead the region in terms of numbers of arrivals, despite a flat growth rate during 2018. A free transit visa for two days for Dubai and Abu Dhabi helped to sustain arrival numbers. Key cities in Saudi Arabia also posted a sluggish performance due to economic factors and revisions in its visa fees, whereas the United Arab Emirates has seen a positive impact of diversifying visitor experiences to cities beyond Dubai, notably Ras Al Khaimah,” said the Euromonitor report.

 

Hong Kong ranked on top as the top destination in the world with 29.2 m visitors in 2018, while Bangkok and London came second and third with 24.1 m and 19.2 m visitors, respectively.
