Dubai Awarded 4th Most Popular Tourist Destination


What to See and Do in Dubai

Those who plan to stay for more than just 24 hours in Dubai are sure to enjoy seeing and experiencing more of its culture, and its incredible activities. For example, for those who enjoy indulging in the finer things in life, Dubai is home to some of the biggest malls in the world, including Dubai Mall, which is home to 1,200 shops.

Those who prefer the outdoors can spend their days lazing on one of Dubai’s immaculate beaches or spend a weekend under the stars camping in the desert. For those who like to spend their vacation relaxing, Dubai has an array of spas with every type of treatment imaginable to help melt away any stress.

Travelers who enjoy history and culture can gain insight into Dubai and its culture, including taking a trip to the Al Fahidi Historic District or visiting the Dubai Museum. Lastly, for those adrenaline junkies, get your blood pumping at the Wild Wadi Water Park, take to the sky in a hot air balloon, or ski indoors at the Middle East’s first indoor ski center.

“We continue to see international visitors and their spending play an increasingly critical role in boosting economic dynamism in destination cities around the world,” explains Dr. Yuwa Hedrick-Wong, global economic adviser to MasterCard.

This rapid increase in the ranks is owing to various factors, one of which includes the Dubai 2020 Expo. This is the first time that the World Expo will be held in the UAE and Dubai has implemented various strategies in order to make the Emirate the most tourist friendly city in the world by this time.

Regardless of the fact that the economy might seem unpredictable, the growth of international visitors into the country increases. We suggest that Dubai is so much more than a stopover city, with so much to see and do, it is definitely moving towards the top of many travel bucket lists.
