Following research carried out by The Wall Street Journal, one of the world’s leading daily business publications, Saadiyat Island, was ranked by international travel scouts as a destination it expects “will become a hit in the coming years.”
The travel scouts said Saadiyat Island’s main attractions would be the luxury hotels planned for its upmarket Saadiyat Beach district and its world-class museums, including the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi and the Louvre Abu Dhabi, which will be housed in the island’s Cultural District.
Saadiyat Island – which is just 500 metres offshore the UAE capital – is being transformed into a signature leisure, residential and cultural hub and is the flagship project of Tourism Development & Investment Company (TDIC), the asset development and management arm of the Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority.
Other destinations tipped by the international travel scouts as the ‘hit’ destinations of the future include Honduras, Providence Rhode Island, Newfoundland in Canada, Montenegro, Rwanda, the Seychelles, Almaty in Kazakhstan, China’s Hainan Island and Boracay in The Philippines.
