Everyone who have connections with tourism (tourism organizations, agencies, hotels, restaurants, museums, shopping centers …) are doing their best every year to attract more tourists by various campaigns and presentations. Many places we have not been available before, are now within our grasp. Thus, for example, Abu Dhabi in 2015 recorded the highest ever tourist visits, and also rarely that you will find tourists who will complain at this city!

Not really … credit for that goes to tourism trends.
