Dubai has once again proved to be the choicest destination for Saudis this summer, with hotels in the city showing a 35% occupancy during Eid Al-Fitr, as quoted in Al-Riyadh daily.

More than one-third occupancy of rooms by Saudis during the holidays complements statistics revealed by Dubai tourism authorities that more than two million Saudis visited the city during the past six months, making Saudis as the premier visitors to Dubai.

The Dubai tourism’s marketing wing, in its road shows in GCC states, highlighted the three-month campaign across the city, encompassing Dubai summer surprises, Modhesh World, Ramadan in Dubai and Eid in Dubai. Dubai has been a favorite destination of tourists from the Kingdom, who formed the bulk of the more than four million visitors in 2011 with total spend being a whopping AED 8.8 billion.

Mohammad Al-Turki, an investor in the tourism sector, believes that Dubai is an optimal choice for families. “There is no doubt that Dubai is very well-equipped in terms of infrastructure, tourism facilities, services and attractions that makes it ideal for families,” he said.
