Dubai Holidays Are a Popular Choice Internationally

Over the past decade, Dubai holidays have become a popular choice amongst international travelers. With the creation of the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa, the world’s largest shopping mall, Dubai Mall, and the world’s only 7-star hotel, Burj Al Arab, Dubai has secured its honor as one of the top tourist destinations worldwide.

Its aggressive plan began in 1999 with the grand opening of the Burj Al Arab. Gracing Dubai’s shore line on Jumeirah Beach, this simplistic, yet elegant structure, in the shape of a Dhow sail, has become a Dubai icon, a symbol that is synonymous of the city that birthed it. Momentum grew as the hotel established itself as the leader in luxury hotels, and earned its reputation as the world’s only 7-star facility. Soon the world’s elite began flocking to the Emirate’s shores to experience hedonist splendor like never before seen. Since then, Dubai has worked hard to uphold its reputation as a leader in tourism, from the man-made island of Palm Jumeirah, top of the line PGA championship golf courses, indoor ski resorts, the world’s tallest building and largest mall, their uniquely innovative projects keep attracting visitors year afteryear. 

Even with the global economic downturn, the city has persevered and momentum is building once again for Dubai holidays. Many of the top hoteliers from around the globe have seen the attraction, and opened facilities in Dubai, looking to capitalize on one of the world’s strongest hotel markets.The Growth of Dubai Holidays Outpaces Its Surrounding Markets Although many of the surrounding Emirates have also begun to build their tourist market, none have been able to keep pace with Dubai. As such, instead of becoming a threat to the Dubai holiday market share, we anticipate that Abu Dhabi, and Ras Al Khaimah, will remain secondary extended vacation options for those choosing a holiday in Dubai.

Other regional players such as Qatar and Bahrain are also vying for a meaningful chunk of Dubai’s holiday market share, however; Dubai has proven its long-term sustainability in the tourism and trade industry. The diversity of these uniquely designed, well-marketed projects and offerings of conference, corporate, and family options has allowed Dubai to compete with the other leading destinations on a global scale, even through difficult times. 

With an aggressive goal to double the number of tourists visiting this great city by the 2020, Dubai has also planned on remaking itself. Once seen as a tourist destination for only the elite, the city has shifted its focus to include more of the budget and mid-range markets. Expansive growth in this sector has already begun, with new hotels and budget airlines, such as flyDubai have grown in ever increasing popularity.

Choice in Accommodations Has Multiplied in the Dubai Holiday Market.Hotel accommodations have become more affordable in recent years, offering visitors more choice especially amongst 4 and 5-star facilities. In addition, holiday rentals and hotel apartments have grown in popularity, especially for those looking for a more relaxed and less costly alternative.
