Dubai crowned one of the world's top cities in Lonely Planet's 'Best in Travel' list 2020
Dubai/IBNS: Dubai has been named one of the world’s best cities for travellers to visit in 2020 by global travel authority Lonely Planet.
The city has received the accolade in the Best in Travel 2020 list, which has been curated by Lonely Planet’s editorial team and its community of travel experts.
The list features the emirate amongst the top ten ‘must-visit’ cities for global travellers in the coming year.
The unique combination of iconic attractions and entertainment destinations, outdoor and cultural offerings, and the “boundary-pushing marquee projects” continue to cement Dubai’s position as a preferred holiday destination.
Issam Kazim, CEO, Dubai Corporation for Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DCTCM) commented, “Being recognised as a leading travel destination by Lonely Planet is a testament to the dynamic evolution of Dubai’s tourism proposition, and with the support of one of the world’s leading travel publishers increases consideration and appeal for the emirate in the lead-up to a momentous year.
In line with our goal to becoming the number one most visited city, we will continue to build greater relevance for Dubai amongst global travellers through innovative, impactful and strategic initiatives in 2020 and beyond.”
Tom Hall, Lonely Planet’s VP of Experience, said, “Dubai is famed for its drive to seek out new world records, which will enthral visitors. The food is wonderful, and the shopping and nightlife are world-class. Plus, in the run up to Expo 2020, Dubai has been expanding its portfolio of attractions, which now include the giant Ain Dubai ferris wheel, the Al Shindagha Museum and the Jameel Arts Centre.”
