Number of Chinese tourists to Dubai to grow by 30 per cent

Due in large part to UAE attracting companies to participate in local fairs as well as hosting international conferences and meetings

Experts in the travel and tourism sector say that the UAE in general – and Dubai in particular – has succeeded in strengthening its position in the Chinese tourism market.

The number of Chinese tourists who visited Dubai rose by 25 per cent over the past year to roughly 276,000 Chinese tourists, reports Alkhaleej.

Experts forecast the number of Chinese tourists to grow by the end of this year by up to 30 per cent compared with last year in light of the success of the UAE in attracting Chinese companies to participate in local fairs as well as hosting international conferences and meetings for these companies.

Tourist facilities in Dubai are set to receive nearly 6,000 of the most prominent representatives of the Chinese insurance and financial services sector from all over the world to attend the annual meeting for the distribution of the Dragon International Awards 2015, which will be held from August 22 to 25, 2015, at the Dubai World Trade Centre, organised by the Tourism and Marketing Department trade in Dubai.

Experts attribute the increasing number of Chinese tourists to Dubai to various factors, most important of which is Dubai’s tourism infrastructure, which provides all the options for the Chinese tourists that suit different economic levels.
