AS AN INCREASINGLY POPULAR DESTINATION, SHARJAH HAS EXPERIENCED EXCEPTIONAL GROWTH IN RECENT MONTHS.

In order to accomplish its goals of broadening its tourism offering and increasing awareness of the emirate, DTCM has formed working partnerships with both public and private sectors in Dubai and abroad.

Like many Middle Eastern governments, Dubai is committed to moving away from its reliance on oil revenues and has named tourism as central pillar of economic growth and diversification.

AS THE WORLD’S FOURTH MOST VISITED DESTINATION IN 2016, DUBAI IS A METROPOLIS ON EVERY TRAVELLER’S BUCKET LIST.

As Durai revealed, one of the main reasons of the sector’s rapid growth was the introduction of more relaxed visa options, including a new multiple entry visa for cruise guests which facilitated the administrative processes and has helped reach a wider pool of international vacationers.

WITH ITS CRUISE SECTOR HAVING BEEN IDENTIFIED AS AN EMERGING NICHE, ABU DHABI IS AT THE FOREFRONT OF THE ARABIAN GULF’S AMBITIONS TO BECOME A LEADING WINTER SUN CRUISE HUB.

Sharjah International Airport witnessed impressive figures for the month of August.

Participation of some 100,000 horse-racing enthusiasts marked the success of 2017 Qatar Goodwood Festival, hailed as one of the major sporting highlights of the UK summer season.

Highlighting the endless options that the destination offers, Shannon d’Offay, sales and wedding executive, Raffles Praslin Seychelles, enthused, “[…] Depending on the guests’ requests we can do all sorts of activities and arrangements, from flowers, to photographers, helicopter scenic flights, romantic dinners with musicians, [or] breakfast set up on the villa terrace […].”

WITH ITS WHITE-SAND BEACHES, SECLUDED COVES AND CORAL-COLOURED SUNSETS, THE SEYCHELLES PROVIDES A UNIQUE BACKDROP FOR ROMANTIC ENCOUNTERS.
