After a three-month break, Dubai rolls out the red carpet for tourists starting today. On March 24, Dubai authorities closed the air space as a precautionary measure to contain the spread of Covid-19.
As global tourists return to the shopping paradise of the world, the emirate's iconic landmarks, glitzy malls, hotels and amusement parks and leisure spots have put all hands on deck to ensure visitors feel safe and at home.
