Chinese tourists discover Dubai

China-TouristChinese visitors to Dubai have been increasing exponentially over the past year, due in part to the relaxation of visa restrictions and the increasing disposable income of the Chinese middle-class.  Political unrest in other Middle Eastern destinations have also forced more Chinese tourists to Dubai. Both governments are working to increase the flow of traffic from China to Dubai, and the Chinese government has labeled it an “approved destination status,” making it far easier for Emirati companies to advertize in China and for Chinese tourists to obtain visas.

Dubai expects to see at least a 50% increase in Chinese tourism from last year, when over 152,000 Chinese visited the city.  Tourists often come mainly to shop, so the malls that drive Dubai’s economy welcome the new visitors.  Many hotels are adding Chinese food and staff to their offerings to appease the wealthy travelers as the surge is met with welcoming open arms.
