Muscat: If hotel occupancy rates are any indication of the number of people visiting a given location, then more and more Omanis and other residents of the Sultanate are visiting Dubai.

In the first six months of 2014, the number of people from Oman who stayed in hotels in Dubai was almost 163,000, an increase of 12 per cent compared to the same period in 2013.

In the months of July and August 2013, there were more than 49,000 hotel guests from Oman in Dubai, numbers that are expected to be surpassed this summer, according to officials in Dubai.
