Russian tourists in the UAE on the upswing
Russian visitors to the UAE increase significantly… with one VIP Russian on the way that we all know.
There are now more Russians visiting the UAE than ever before. Quarter two 2019 saw their numbers increase to 55 percent.
The stats come from the Q2 2019 Expedia Group report, which also forecasts that Russian tourists travelling to the GCC will increase 125 percent to 2.1 million by 2023.
There is one more well-known Russian travelling to the UAE tomorrow, Tuesday, 15th October.
Although Russia’s president Vladimir Putin will meet Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces to discuss policies and programmes to further strengthen ties between the two nations, we hope he will take time to visit the UAE’s tourist attractions.
