LONDON: Dubai attracted 4.75 million international visitors in the first quarter of 2019, a slight rise on last year’s numbers, according to the UAE state news agency WAM. A boost in visitors from China helped push up the number of international overnight visitors to the city, which saw an overall 2 percent rise compared with the first quarter of 2018, according to data from Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing. Dubai has an ambitious goal to attract 20 million visitors a year by 2020, double the number it welcomed in 2012.
