Holidays to Dubai are growing in popularity due to its affordability and accessibility, according to one travel journalist.

Dubai has grown in popularity as a holiday destination because it offers “affordable luxury” and is easily accessible, according to the editor of Wanderlust magazine.

Dan Linstead believes that the number of hotel rooms on offer, the competitively priced flights to Dubai and its hot climate have all contributed to the increasing demand for holidays to the state.

“It’s one of the easiest and most affordable ways to get a reliable blast of winter sun,” he said.

Dubai recently topped a list of winter sun destinations, beating Thailand, Egypt, Antigua and Australia.

The Flight Centre used levels of customer enquiry in order to compile the chart of places set to be the most popular holiday spots this winter.

Great value deals and guaranteed sunshine were the main factors attracting holidaymakers to the emirate, the company said.

Commenting on the destination’s appeal, Mr Linstead added: “If you’re after a beach or a luxury hotel, Dubai probably ticks those boxes pretty successfully.”
