After a long hiatus due to COVID-19, tourism attractions across Dubai have started to resume operations.

Across the emirate, hotel beaches, malls, swimming pools and restaurants have been given the go-ahead to reopen as borders reopen on July 7.

Though the pandemic has dealt a hefty blow to Dubai – a city with a huge focus on tourism – Dubai Corporation for Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DCTCM) has said the emirate is still in prime position to become the most visited, preferred and global city.
