What was once a sleepy little port on the Arabian peninsula has now grown into one of the epicentres of the global tourism industry.
The city of Dubai has been given a central role in the UAE government’s push to make the country into one of the premier tourist destinations in the world. The country’s burgeoning list of tourist attractions includes many iconic buildings and structures located in and around the city. Many of these new attractions, like the Dubai Frame, have already entered the lists of globally-renowned tourist destinations.
Dubai has already solidified its position among the leading tourist destinations in the world. Over the past decade, the city has consistently found itself among the top 10 most visited cities in the world and has also risen to prominence as an important travel hub.
