A new teaser video re-imagines Dubai with its key attractions showcased in snow globes placed in front of popular destinations. It’s just too cool to miss:
“Goodbye summer vacation. Winter is coming soon,” the Government of Dubai Media Office posted with the video.
Winter is the coolest time to explore the emirate and all it has to offer.
The media office used the hashtag #DubaiDestinations, signifying that the video is part of the emirate’s tourism initiative. The campaign had a summer offering this year, and it was so cool that it helped residents beat the heat. It highlighted the city’s exceptional experiences, including exciting events and activities on offer during the season.
The campaign encouraged Dubai’s community to discover the city’s unique destinations in the summer and enjoy its distinctive offerings ranging from dining and family-friendly activities at hotels to beach activities, water parks, water sports adventures and indoor entertainment — all of which capture the essence of the Dubai summer experience.

The TikTok Travel Index 2022 released by Bounce rated the city the most-viewed destination on the popular social media platform, with views for videos featuring the hashtag 'Dubai' totalling over 81.8 billion.
