Dubai ranked first for the second consecutive year in the region and 2nd globally in the Top City Destinations Index 2022 of Euromonitor.

Paris took the title of the world’s top city in 2022 again followed by Dubai, then Amsterdam, Madrid, and Rome in the Top 5 places.

Euromonitor measures top city performers for economic and business activity, with thriving tourism infrastructure and performance that show great potential for investment and operation amid increased digitalisation, technological advancement and sustainability developments.

International tourism, which is projected to register 112 percent growth in 2022 in terms of inbound spending, has been one of the key factors behind the resilient recovery of global cities.

Intra-Regional Travel

Intra-regional travel, an easing of travel restrictions and value-driven tourism further boost their appeal. Preferences for domestic travel and short-haul flights are defining consumer behaviour when choosing where to holiday.

In 2022, 14 destinations from the Middle East and Africa feature in the Top 100 City Destinations Index, compared to 16 in 2021. The top 10 cities remain unchanged annually, with Dubai cementing its first place for a second consecutive year in the region, whilst ranking second in terms of overall Index performance.
