Tourists considering a visit to the United Arab Emirates have been advised that one location in particular is very popular for a number of reasons.
A spokesman for the Emaar Hospitality Group has commented on the many people who flock to the Dubai Mall every year to take in some of the various sights it has to offer.
Marc Dardenne, chief executive officer of the group, explained with an estimated three million visitors each month, the venue that claims to be "the world's largest shopping and entertainment destination" continues to attract people.
"Together with such spectacles as The Dubai Fountain and Burj Dubai, [the mall] has become one of the most-preferred tourist destinations in Dubai," he added.
His comments follow the announcement of a new 244-room hotel that is being attached to the complex, which will feature a blend of Arabian and modern decor as ell as a poolside restaurant and lobby lounge.
The mall also has a multi-screen cinema complex which will soon host 22 individual theatres and the first ever to carry the THX audio certification in the UAE.
