Within the sub-rankings, Dubai was recognised as fourth best destination for food lovers and top of the charts for city lovers.

A big year for Dubai
While Dubai’s recovery began in 2021 with the arrival of the delayed Expo 2020 Dubai, an array of top new restaurants and slew of exciting hotels, 2022 is set to get even more exciting.

The six-month expo will come to a close at the end of March, long-awaited hotels include Atlantis, The Royal and Dorchester Collection’s The Lana will debut, and we can expect the return of some big-scale festivals and events.
