According to the latest figures released by Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi) the emirate saw a seven percent year-on-year increase in the number of hotel guests during the first nine months of the year, with September recording five percent rise compared to the corresponding month in 2016.

While September saw a slight drop in domestic tourists into Abu Dhabi, the month was marked by a surge in Chinese hotel guests, recording a highly impressive increase of 133 percent in comparison to September 2016.

The rise to more than 28,000 Chinese guests in the month under review can be attributed to extensive marketing across China carried out by the authority and the granting of visas on arrival from the start of the year to Chinese nationals.
