Beautiful beaches, first-rate shopping, luxury hotels and grand theme parks are working magic to attract Chinese tourists to Dubai. The city in Middle East recently launched a weeklong event to showcase what it has to offer to Chinese tourists, along with opportunities in business, culture and lifestyle. A total of 344,000 Chinese made it to Dubai in 2014, up 25 per cent over the previous year, Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing reports. That puts Dubai at No. 7 among the most popular travel destinations for the Chinese, and the country’s tourism officials expect more than 400,000 Chinese tourists to visit the country this year.
