The pearling town of Jazirah-al-Hamra in Ras Al Khaimah has recently found a spot in the UNESCO review list.

According to Dnata Travel’s survey, most of the domestic travellers want to travel and experience different regions of UAE more by 2021.

dnata Travel is the biggest provider of travel services and products for retail and business customers for the Middle Eastern market. The company is based in Dubai.

Among the respondents who participated in the survey, 91 percent responded positively to the question on whether they are considering domestic travels during the rest of 2020 and 2021. The survey inferred that next year is going to be the biggest ever for local tourism for the country.

The most popular tourist destination among the tourists is the Ras Al Khaimah in the country with 55% of people saying that they would like to explore more of the emirate next year.

After Ras Al Khaimah’s, Fujairah and Dubai are chosen as the next choices by the people. Also half of the respondents consider beach breaks as one the most suitable place, followed by “outdoor/adventure holiday” and “island escape.”

Emily Jenkins, Head of Retail and Product said, “With Ras Al Khaimah offering 64 kilometres of pristine beaches, an abundance of cultural experiences, as well as incredible outdoor adventure activities at Jebel Jais, the highest mountain peak in the UAE, it’s not surprising that this emirate is leading the way as a destination that domestic travelers want to see more of this year.”

Ras Al Khaimah had recently added four of its spots into the UNESCO review list from the UAE. They are the pearling town of Jazirah al-Hamra, Julfar City, Al Shamal and Al Dhayah.

Ms Jenkins added that the demand for the staycation in the UAE is increasing, as the travelers seek new places to explore.

The Dnata says that it is witnessing more bookings to popular destinations like Maldives and Seychelles, as the international travel destinations slowly open up for the public.
