Why Dubai is the best tourist destination in the world



Dubai has been crowned the No.1 global destination in the Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards for a second successive year, consolidating its position as the world’s favorite tourist destination.

Dubai is well-known for its magnificent skyscrapers and stunning beaches, and it consistently receives praise for the variety and caliber of its tourist attractions.

According to Tripadvisor, a platform that organizes traveler awards, among numerous entries from the Middle East, well-known European destinations, and coveted tropical and desert getaways, Dubai emerged as “The Best of the Best Destinations” in 2022.

The back-to-back global seals of approval underscore the significant efforts to bolster the city’s vibrant economy and tourism ecosystem as it seeks to deliver the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to make Dubai the world’s most visited and livable city.

Justin Reid, Director of Media, Destination, and Travel at Tripadvisor described Dubai in their previous win as “an ultramodern city that has it all… Despite the effects of the pandemic, Dubai still attracted visitors from near and far over the past year and has stood out as their favourite place to go in a year when they really needed some excitement.”

The Travelers’ Choice Awards are based on travellers’ ratings of places they visit, stay at, and other tourism activities that they do during their travels. Other top travellers’ choices are; Bali in Indonesia, London in the United Kingdom, Rome in Italy, Paris in France, Cancun in Mexico, Crete in Greece, Marrakech in Morocco, the Dominican Republic and Istanbul in Turkey.

Helal Saeed Almarri, director general, Dubai’s Department of Economy and Tourism (DET) said: “Being named the No.1 global destination for a second consecutive year reflects the significant work undertaken by the city’s many stakeholders, our strong public private partnership model, and Dubai’s global network of partners – all of which are aligned towards the guiding vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, vice president and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to make Dubai the city of the future and the world’s best destination to visit, live and work.

“Tourism is a central pillar of Dubai’s economic growth and diversification, and the continual investment in our product offering, a frictionless and superlative guest experience and the development of the sector and those working in it, will not only serve to further accelerate industry growth but critically, will have a significant multiplier impact on many other elements of Dubai’s economic landscape and global appeal to businesses and talent.
