What Makes Dubai Such a Popular Holiday Destination?

What Makes Dubai Such a Popular Holiday Destination?

From 14.2 million in 2015, the number of international overnight tourists to Dubai reached 15.27 million in 2016, according to data published by Statista. The data also revealed that the city of Doha alone welcomed over one million visitors. It was further added that with over US$31 billion being spent by international visitors, the largest city in the United Arab Emirates, Dubai, has become the leading destination for international tourist spend, followed by London, where visitors spent US$19.76 billion and New York, where the spend was US$18.52 billion.

There are many reasons that that attract visitors to holiday in Dubai. It is a beautifully developed city, known for the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa, which alone accounts for a large percentage of the travel to, says an expert at Cruxton Travel, adding further that the availability of numerous cheap hotels in Dubai only helps tourism to the city.

What is Dubai all About?

Unlike the rest of the Middle East, where the economy largely depends on their oil reserves, Dubai’s economy is fueled by tourism, real estate and financial services. One of the world’s most prominent urban cities, Dubai boasts a cosmopolitan lifestyle, blended with traditional aspects of the local culture. On the one side, there are skyscrapers that appear to touch the sky and on the other hand is the white sand, both on the beaches and on desert safaris.

No matter which part of the city you wish to visit, you will find something that interests you. It is difficult to imagine that in less than fifty years, a metropolis has emerged in the heart of the desert from what was originally a small fishing village.

Where to Stay?

Would you like to experience the world's grandest and most luxurious hotels? Dubai is the only place where tourists, both new and returning, end up with a plethora of choices for accommodation, adding to the popularity of this destination. For instance, at Atlantis - The Palm, a 5-star hotel located on Palm Jumeirah Island, one can enjoy private sandy beaches, breathtaking views of the Arabian Gulf and a vibrant and extraordinary nightlife in the hotel itself. To satisfy their clients’ taste buds, some of the world's best chefs make every possible effort to create new and delectable dishes for the clientele. And if you book your flight well in advance, you might even find business class tickets for sale at a discount!

What To Do in Dubai?

Although the dazzling nightlife and sandy beaches are enough reason to be in Dubai, the city is also home to the world's largest mall by total area, The Dubai Mall, which houses 1,200 shops that stock some of the best global brands. On the other hand, if you have a penchant for jewelry, compared to the UK, you will find gold, platinum, diamonds and occasionally silver available at much cheaper rates in the gold markets of Dubai.

When you are done shopping, stay prepared to be spoilt for choice of activities to further enjoy your holiday in Dubai. You can take a camel ride in the desert, have fun at a water park, swim with the dolphins and much more. All you need to do is book first class flights to Dubai and don’t forget to check for the business class tickets for sale beforehand.
