Brits boost Abu Dhabi tourism

Brits boost Abu Dhabi tourism
4 Jun 2014

The Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi) has revealed that visitor numbers to the emirate climbed by 29% in April, compared to the previous year.

British travellers were the largest demographic to visit the region, with just over 19,000 people checking into hotels in Abu Dhabi over the course of the month. The numbers represented a 34% rise on the same period in 2013.

This was closely followed by Indian visitors, with HE Jasem Al Darmaki, deputy director general of TCA Abu Dhabi, explaining that the boost in Indian travellers can be partially attributed to the Indian Premier League cricket matches that were hosted by the emirate.

Abu Dhabi is aiming to attract 3.2 million hotel guests this year and is on course to do so, with over one million guests having already visited the emirate in 2014.

There are many attractions in Abu Dhabi that appeal to travellers from a variety of markets, including Ferrari World, Yas Island and Jebel Hafeet and the surrounding area.ADNFCR-408-ID-801725618-ADNFCR
