Dubai hotels set first half record

Dubai’s hotels welcomed more than 5.8 million tourists in the first half of 2014 – the highest number of visitors ever achieved in the first six months of the year. The figures show an increase in visitors from many of key source markets such as China, Brazil, Australia and many countries in Europe. Dubai’s top 10 tourism source markets remained for the most part unchanged compared to the previous year: Saudi Arabia, India, UK, U.S., Russia, China, Iran, Oman, Kuwait and Germany.
