A UK-based market research firm hailed Dubai as one of the most visited cities for 2018.

According to the Euromonotor’s 100 most visited cities ranking, Dubai is the seventh most visited city in the world next to Hong Kong, Bangkok, London, Singapore, Macau, and Paris.

The report hailed Dubai as “one of the most innovative cities in the world” mainly because of its transport system.

“Dubai is one of the most innovative cities in the world, with a host of new and smart technologies continuously introduced in the city state. This includes smart palms on its beaches, and successful tests of flying taxis,” the report explained.

“Dubai Airport has installed a face-scanning tunnel equipped with over 80 facial recognition and retina cameras, replacing traditional border gates,” it added.

Moreover, the report also took note of the emirate’s efforts to increase the number of tourists visiting the country.

“Dubai Tourism Vision 2020 aims to welcome 20 million visitors to the emirate by the year 2020. The tourism board is actively promoting Dubai as a top choice for leisure and business travellers. Various policies were introduced to increase the number of tourists from new source markets. These legislative changes included new visa-upon-arrival policies, no charge for transit tourists for up to 48 hours stays, and optional extended-stay visas for up to 96 hours,” the report explained.

Aside from Dubai, other cities that made it to top 10 include New York City, Kuala Lumpur, and Shenzen.

The report added that among the cities to watch out for are Mumbai in India, Potro in Portugal, and Osaka in Japan.
