08 July, 2015
The UAE is all set to receive a massive influx of tourists from Saudi Arabia and other countries during the Eid weekend, to be followed by the 45-day Dubai Summer Surprises (DSS). According to officials, the number of Saudi tourists in Dubai alone is expected to see a 10 per cent increase over last year’s 1.3 million, and an action-packed calendar of events is being put in place for them. The Eid Al Fitr festivities will begin on 17 July and DSS will roll out on 23 July. Tour operators and travel agents said they are in overdrive to meet the huge demand.
