Alongside that, the report highlighted the city’s international airports, ports, highways and bus routes as well as its countless hotels and resorts suiting all tastes and budget ranges, all of which are only 30 minutes away from Dubai International Airport.
Dubai indulges in 654 hotels equipped with 107 rooms as well as meeting facilities. It also has the world’s tallest hotel, the 528-room Gevora Hotel, as well as the second tallest hotel, the JW Marriott Marquis Dubai, with rooms and suites exceeding 1600 units.
