Dubai has been named as one of the top 25 places go worldwide in the Traveller Choice Awards 2014 by TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel site.
The entry highlighted 646 activities to try in Dubai including the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding, The Dubai Fountain, Dubai Creek and various attractions and tours in the city, desert and along the coast.
Issam Kazim, Chief Executive Officer of the Dubai Corporation for Tourism and Commerce Marketing said: “We are honoured to have been chosen for the first time ever as one of the top 25 destinations as part of TripAdvisor’s Traveller Choice Awards. 2013 was a successful year for the Emirate which saw further hotel and attraction openings, new events and milestones such as the announcement of our Vision for Tourism 2020 and the winning Expo 2020 bid. This year we’ve already seen the launch of the Dubai Food Festival, a range of world-class events in music, culture and sport and more hospitality openings. Awards such as this show the global recognition of Dubai as a must-visit destination and we continue to work towards the ultimate aspiration of being the world’s most recommended leisure and business destination.”
