If you’re planning any travel around the UAE next year, we suggest booking in advance as the country is expected to get an influx of tourists.

According to a survey conducted by global travel company Kuoni, UAE has topped the ‘world’s most searched destination for 2021’ in 11 countries.

The firm looked at Google’s global data from 131 countries, with the spokesperson commenting that all of the seven emirates offer the perfect winter escape.

“Each of the seven emirates has its own characteristics, but they’re all an excellent destination for some winter sun,” Kuoni said.


“Dubai has a futuristic style with soaring skyscrapers, epic shopping malls and long stretches of beach, Fujairah has some incredible snorkelling spots and Ras Al Khaimah draws beach lovers to its beautiful coastline.”

We couldn’t agree more. Other top destinations that made the list include Egypt, Canada and the USA.

The global pandemic has had a significant impact on UAE tourism this year, with travel for leisure only reinstated on July 7. However, many feel that the numerous unique activities on offer for will entice many more holidaymakers to visit next year.

“The success of the tourism sector in the UAE has been a model for many countries to follow. The UAE tops the list of the most attractive countries on the world map for tourism, due to the great infrastructure, array of entertainment offerings and its unparalleled tourism attractions,” Mamoun Hmedan, managing director for Mena and India, Wego, told Khaleej Times.
