Dubai has launched a series of measures to attract Chinese tourists, including a visa-free policy for Chinese tourists visiting Dubai.
The opening of the Xi’an-Dubai route has further connected the two places, which will enhance the exchanges between them along the Belt and Road in tourism, economy, trade, and culture, while also bringing more travel choices to passengers from both countries.
