Dubai overcomes the odds as tourism numbers edge up | The National:

"The number of tourists visiting Dubai grew by 5 per cent last year despite Indian demonetisation, an economic slowdown in Saudi Arabia and Brexit hitting its three biggest source markets.

According to figures published by Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) on Tuesday, the number of overnight visitors flocking to Dubai in 2016 rose to 14.9 million from 14.2 million a year earlier, led by visitors from India, Saudi Arabia and the UK.


The figure places Dubai firmly as the world’s fourth most visited city behind Bangkok, London and Paris, according to DTCM."
