London (PRWEB UK) 29 May 2014
Having built its reputation on high-end luxury, Dubai is aiming to be more accessible to the masses by opening more mid-range accommodation. Developers in the emirate are aiming to build more than 1,000 hotel rooms in the next five years to appeal to visitors with a more modest budget.
In the meantime, online travel company Globehunters will be providing a range of affordable special offers on holidays and flights to Dubai for those that want to experience one of the world’s most exciting and opulent cities without breaking the bank.
To satisfy the demand for cheaper accommodation amongst the increasing numbers of mid-income visitors, developers such as Union Properties PJSC (UPP) plan to build 1,000 hotel rooms by 2019 in thriving areas such as Business Bay. The ambitious emirate is hoping to have more than 20 million visitors per year by the end of the decade when it hosts World Expo 2020 and it is hoped this wider range of accommodation will help achieve this.
These are exciting times for Dubai, with the city recently voted as the best in the world for hotels and shopping by TripAdvisor users. New York and London were beaten to the coveted number one spot in the shopping category, with Cancun and Bangkok topped for best hotels. The Dubai Mall alone welcomed more than 75 million shoppers last year, with the annual Dubai Shopping Festival attracting tourists from around the globe.
More than 11 million visitors checked into Dubai’s hotels in 2013, and last month Dubai International became the world’s busiest airport for international passengers. With a long list of ambitious expansion plans including an additional terminal and a concourse twice the size of Heathrow’s terminal five, things are showing no sign of slowing down. Indeed, Dubai Airports CEO Paul Griffiths predicts that ‘more than 100 million passengers’ will pass through Dubai’s airports by 2020.
With over 160 flights per week leaving Heathrow for Dubai, the emirate is also an extremely popular destination for the UK market, with around a million UK nationals visiting Dubai every year.
