Summer tourism booms in Dubai

(Dubai) – Tourists, especially women, love the fact that Dubai is safe. This is one reason why the hotel business in the Emirate is doing well. During and after Eid, overseas visitors, especially from the GCC countries, thronged the Emirate. It helped that the Dubai Summer Surprises (DSS) festival that began on July 23 (right after Eid) is on till September 5.
Saeed Alaabdi, Chairman, Alaabdi Holding, said: “Hotel occupancy rates during Eid Al Fitr exceeded expectations, especially at 5-star hotels.” He anticipates tourist traffic to continue throughout DSS and bookings and occupancy to remain high with an increase of 20 – 25 per cent.
According to Alaabdi, “Dubai surpassed multiple European cities in terms of visitors’ choice, owing to the emirate’s strong safety and security regulations, state-of-the-art infrastructure, and world-class services.”
To make the best of the tourist rush, tour operators in Dubai have been rolling out comprehensive travel packages. At least three tour operators have confirmed that there is a demand during this season, in light of DSS.
