Untold Festival Is Coming to Dubai
Dubai has transformed into a year-round tourist destination, no longer limited to just the winter months. According to Condé Nast Traveller magazine, the emirate has been ranked as the most beautiful city in the region and one of the top 10 globally. Visitors can relish the sea breeze at Jumeirah beach, admire the Islamic architecture of Jumeirah Mosque, and engage in numerous outdoor activities during the summer.
“Dubai is the ultimate summer destination for those who can’t get enough of the heat. Stay by the coast to make the most of that sea breeze: Jumeirah Beach is set along the Arabian Gulf with powdery sand and breathtaking buildings lining the shore,” it said, quoting a study of Travelbag.
According to a recent study, more than 100 cities were analyzed to determine which locations provide the best backdrop for summer social media posts based on Instagram and TikTok hashtags. Dubai emerged as the top location with almost 51,000 hashtags on Instagram alone. In the first four months of 2023, Dubai welcomed 6.02 million visitors, marking an increase of 18% compared to the previous year. India was the primary source market, followed by Russia, the UK, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Germany, the USA, Israel, China, and Iran.
“Head up 160 storeys to the observation deck of the Burj Khalifa for incredible views across the emirate, take in some culture at the Jumeirah Mosque to get a sense of Islamic architecture, or stay indoors – hotels in Dubai are incredible feats,” it added.
The top 10 prettiest cities to visit this summer are London, Paris, Berlin, Chicago, Seattle, Dubai, Sydney, New York, Miami and Melbourne.
