Tourism and D33

Tourism has always been a priority for the leadership and government of Dubai. Sheikh Hamdan in his note also mentioned the goals for Dubai's tourism sector in D33, which is an economic agenda announced by Sheikh Mohammed last year. It aims to make Dubai "among the top 3 global economic cities and tourist destinations".

"We ... extend a warm welcome to all our guests visiting us from around the world," the Crown Prince concluded.

Dubai stands out when it comes to world cities - and for good reason. As Tripadvisor says on their website, "Dubai is a destination that mixes modern culture with history, adventure with world-class shopping and entertainment."

From unique views at the top of the Burj Khalifa, to the a day at spice and gold souqs at Dubai's old town, there is something for everyone.

People travel from every corner of the globe to bask in this city - one that balances a luxurious environment with a warm and welcoming attitude to visitors at any time of the year.
