Dubai revealed in Top 10 list of Destinations for LGBT Travel in 2016

Gogobot, a travel app and website, has revealed its top global destinations where the LGBT tourism sector is expanding. With LGBT tourism on the increase in countries all over the world, the focus is on which destinations are the hotspots for LGBT travellers.

At the top of the list was Atlanta in the United States due to its gay-friendly nightlife and hotels, and Dubai made the Top 10. Dubai was listed in ninth place because there has been an increase in interest in travel to the emirate among the LGBT community.

The results for the Top 10 list was compiled after Gogobot took data based on a number of factors including reviews from travellers visiting the destinations, real travellers recommending the places, and an increase in people booking trips to the destinations on the website.

The information showed that although it is illegal to be openly gay in Dubai, the vibrant city is attracting more interest from LGBT communities around the world who are keen to visit the United Arab Emirate, which is home to unique architecture such as the 828-metre-high Burj Khalifa and luxury hotels like the Burj al Arab.

The list of Top 10 LGBT Destinations is as follows:

  1. Atlanta
  2. Minneapolis
  3. Boston
  4. Austin
  5. Dallas
  6. Washington, D.C.
  7. Hong Kong
  8. Toronto
  9. Dubai
  10. Tampa

Dubai is one of the world’s most luxurious destinations with a unique skyline peppered with soaring modern structures. The United Arab Emirate is home to the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, as well as huge attractions including the Dubai Mall with designer brands, huge theme parks, Ski Dubai, Dubai Dolphinarium, and the iconic manmade Palm Islands with their ultra-luxurious hotels and resorts.
