Dubai named among world's top tourist destinations

Dubai is an increasingly popular tourist destination among holidaymakers from the UK, many of whom are keen to enjoy the winter sun and marvel at the incredible skyscrapers that are found in this part of the world.

And its rising levels of popularity have been underlined by a new poll conducted by TripAdvisor, the world's largest travel website, having been named in a list of the top 25 holiday destinations.

This is further highlighted by figures showing that the emirate welcomed as many as 11 million people in 2013.

In fact, the emirate was ranked 17th on the list, meaning that it is behind destinations like Paris and New York.

Also appearing on the list was London, with James Kay, TripAdvisor spokesperson, saying: "These awards are based on millions of reviews and ratings by those that really matter - travellers themselves.

"There is no doubt the birth of the royal baby helped keep the eyes of the world on London in 2013, but the capital’s continued appeal among travellers around the world surpasses any one event."ADNFCR-408-ID-801711764-ADNFCR
