The Abu Dhabi’s Department of Culture and Tourism is readying to welcome tourists to the redeveloped Qasr Al Hosn in Abu Dhabi by the year-end. The historic fort at the heart of the capital is undergoing a substantial renovation. Cafes and restaurants will also feature in the finished attraction, while it will host exhibitions and concerts, along with the return of the annual Qasr Al Hosn Festival.It forms part of the emirate plans to make a sustained push to attract more tourists. According to official figures, Abu Dhabi welcomed about five million hotel guests last year – up 10% on 2016 and Indian arrivals contributed majorly to it. This year’s goal is 5.5 million.“Each emirate is trying to develop a unique tourist identity: Ras Al Khaimah has adventure tourism and Abu Dhabi has its culture. What we are trying to do is create a different unique selling point in each emirate so we can complement rather than compete,” said Sultan Al Dhaheri, Executive Director, Tourism Development and Investment Company.
