Dubai is leaving no stone unturned to reach its target of attracting 20 million visitors by 2020.
On Monday, the emirate’s tourism authority launched Dubai Pass, a prepaid card, which will allow tourists to access over 30 attractions across the city.
Available for redemption starting May 16 this year, Dubai Pass will grant cash-free access to attractions such as Burj Khalifa, Dubai Parks and Resorts, IMG Worlds of Adventure, Wild Wadi Waterpark, Ski Dubai, Desert Safari Tours, among others.
Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (Dubai Tourism) said in a statement that the year-round pass is aimed at helping visitors and tourists “save money and make the most of their trip with family and friends”.
The packages start from Dh389 ($105) to Dh899 for a range of options, with a choice of 33 attractions offered in two bundles:
Select: Dh399 for adult; Dh389 for child
Unlimited: Dh899 for adult; Dh846 for child
The “Select” package, which allows one to choose limited attractions, is valid for seven consecutive days, while, “Unlimited” package, as the name suggests, offers one infinite choice of events and attractions, with three-day validity.
Additionally, visitors will also receive a 50 per cent discount on tickets to La Perle, the live entertainment show with acrobatics and aerial stunts, with every purchase, DTCM said.
The tourism body aptly chose the region’s largest travel and tourism show, the Arabian Travel Market (ATM), to launch the pass. It said that introduction of this pass follows the success of previous seasonal passes for Dubai Summer Surprises (DSS) and Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF).
Dubai played host to 15.8 million visitors last year, up by 6.2 per cent over a year earlier.
