This trend was seen in other markets as well, a prime example being growing inbound footfall from Poland up by 14 per cent.

He added further: “Ras Al Khaimah is in the midst of its three-year destination strategy which aims to broaden its reach through increased segmentation.”

 

“A key focus has been on higher yield visitors such as MICE delegates, as well as prioritising sustainable nature-based adventure and culture driven activities and experiences.”

 

By 2021, Ras Al Khaimah is targeting 1.5 million visitors.
