Abu Dhabi is on target to welcome a record 4.9 million hotel guests this year as the emirate benefits from the much-awaited opening of the Louvre and high profile events such as the Formula One, the Department of Culture and Tourism said on Monday.

Abu Dhabi, which received more than 4.4 million guests in 2016 , has already attracted 4.3 million guests in the first 11 months of this year, a 9 per cent year-on-year increase , the department said. In November alone, guest numbers surged 16 per cent to more than 443,000 thanks to the opening of the Louvre and hosting of Formula One that has a global fan following.

“These events are proving a draw to visitors who are seeking a blend of Arabian culture, heritage and excitement in a diverse and affordable destination,” said Saif Ghobash, director general of the Department of Culture and Tourism. “We expect a strong fourth quarter performance to round off a very successful year for Abu Dhabi’s tourism sector.”
