Experts also noted that tourists prefer Dubai and Abu Dhabi because these cities offer different attractions and activities that suit their interests. “Another in-demand activity is the cruise tour. Large vessels take the tourists from Dubai to Abu Dhabi for two nights and three days to have a peaceful and leisurely time,” said Varghese.

“The Marina yacht is also the most enquired activity. Tourists who would like to celebrate some occasion or host a party prefer floating on waters, and it’s considerably affordable in Dubai compared to other cities in the world,” said Varghese.

Considering the dining part, Mathachan mentioned that the city has nearly every cuisine on offer, making the eateries a must-try for visitors. “With hundreds of activities, Dubai offers every cuisine for your taste buds.
