The UAE has outperformed depressing global trends in tourism arrivals in the first half of 2021. The decline in its hotel occupancy rates appears less severe compared to other markets. Dubai for instance, welcomed 3.7 million overnight visitors during the 11-month period from July 2020 to May 2021. With the World Expo UAE opening in October, hotels across the country are gearing up to welcome millions for overseas visitors. Overall, despite the challenges raised by the pandemic, the UAE has shown a considerable degree of resilience in 2021.
