Dubai has been included on the Travellers’ Choice Destinations 2015 list released by TripAdvisor, and was the only UAE destination to make it into the top 25, taking 24th spot.
The Travellers’ Choice Destination award reflects the ongoing enhancement of Dubai’s destination offering and visitor experience, according to Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM).
The online review and travel website’s annual Travellers’ Choice awards are based on the reviews and opinions of millions of travellers, with the winners chosen using an algorithm that takes into account the quantity and quality of reviews as well as ratings for hotels, restaurants and attractions over a 12-month period.
According to TripAdvisor, “Dubai is a cosmopolitan oasis, a futuristic cityscape that towers over the Arabian Desert. This Travellers’ Choice Destination is a city of superlatives, home to the world’s largest dancing fountain; tallest building (Burj Khalifa); only seven-star hotel (the Burj al-Arab); largest artificial islands (the Palm Islands); and largest natural flower garden (the Miracle Garden). Rent a dune buggy for a desert adventure, bargain at the open-air market, or cheer on your favourite humped hoofer at the Camel Race Track.”
