Dubai has clinched the coveted title of the world’s No. 1 global destination for the third consecutive year in the prestigious Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards. The announcement was made by Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of The Executive Council of Dubai, via his official social media account.

Expressing the significance of Dubai’s consistent tourism achievements, Sheikh Hamdan highlighted the city’s transformation from an aspirational goal to a tangible reality. He credited the visionary leadership of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, for steering Dubai’s tourism sector towards unprecedented success.

Just a year ago, Sheikh Mohammed outlined ambitious goals for Dubai’s tourism in the Dubai Economic Agenda, D33, aiming to position the city among the top three global economic cities and tourist destinations. The recent recognition in the Tripadvisor rankings reaffirms the emirate’s progress in fulfilling these objectives.

The evaluation for the 2024 Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards considered the quality and quantity of reviews and ratings across various subcategories, including accommodations, restaurants, and activities worldwide. The assessment covered a 12-month period from October 2022 to September 2023, utilizing data gathered from traveler reviews and ratings on Tripadvisor.

In the global rankings, Dubai secured the top spot, followed by Bali in second place and London in third, retaining its position as Europe’s No. 1 destination. Hanoi claimed the fourth spot, with Rome rounding off the Top 5. Notably, New York, the highest-ranking American destination, experienced a slight decline, moving from 23rd to 25th. Paris, Cancun, Marrakech, Crete, and Hoi An in Vietnam completed the Top 10.

These rankings underscore Dubai’s continued appeal as a premier global travel destination, driven by its diverse offerings and commitment to excellence in the tourism sector.
