At a (Social) Distance
Dubai, the futuristic city in the desert, was one of the first countries in the world to open for tourism safely.
Early on, the United Arab Emirates set about to test as much of the population as possible for Covid-19. As a result, health authorities were always aware of existing and emerging hotspots, helping them to act swiftly to contain the virus. This, along with other initiatives, led Dubai to reopen to tourism, with confidence, from the beginning of July 2020.
And now the country is busy vaccinating as much of the population as possible.
Most bars, restaurants, beaches, shopping malls and cultural sites have reopened; and hotels have ramped up health and safety measures to ensure tourists feel safe. There are incredible discounts to be had – in the hotels and the shopping malls.
So what else makes Dubai the ideal place for a socially distanced escape?
