Tourism Overview The tourism sector continues to record solid growth in 2011. After a strong performance in Q111, the most recent available data, figures for H111, show that guest numbers at Dubai hotels totalled nearly 4.6mn. We estimate that this represents good growth of about 10% year-on-year (y-o-y). In Abu Dhabi, data for the first seven months of 2011 show a robust 15% y-o-y increase in tourists (including Emirati arrivals) at hotels to over 1.2mn guests. Key source markets France and Germany recorded sizeable growth in visitors of 27% and 17% y-o-y respectively.

There was also a surge in arrivals from the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, particularly in July. In H111, in Sharjah, there was modest growth of 3% y-o-y in tourist arrivals (including UAE nationals) at hotels to about 0.8mn. In July, visitor numbers went up 18% y-o-y. As in previous years, European arrivals accounted for 40% of total visitors in H1, while tourists from the GCC, particularly Saudi Arabia, and Asia accounted for 29% and 18% respectively. Arrivals from Russia, more than 153,000, which dominates visitors from Europe, by 36% yo- y in H1.
