Bucharest

Dubai Corporation for Tourism & Commerce Marketing (DCTCM) will open a tourism office in Romania after noticing that the Romanians’ interest in holidays in Dubai has increased, romania-insider.com reported.

Bucharest thus joins Prague and Warsaw, and becomes the third city in the region where DCTCM has an office.

46,700 Romanian nationals visited the emirate last year. The number will increase by 20% in 2017, according to estimates.

Dubai annually attracts 16 million visitors from around the world. 

– Unfortunately, most Romanians believe Dubai is mainly a luxury destination, which targets people with high income. We hope to change this perception and to present Dubai as a destination for everyone, from budget to top luxury, said Dana Nabeel Abdulla Kambe, DCTCM strategic alliances manager.

Et 73 meter høyt juletre ble julaften avduket i byen Colombo i Sri Lanka. Ifølge folkene bak er dette verdens høyeste juletre og hele 13 meter høyere enn den forrige rekordholderen.

Treet er dekorert med over én million kongler og 600.000 LED-lys.

Sri Lankas hovedstad, med bl.a. sete for nasjonalforsamlingen, er Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte, en forstad til Colombo, som tidligere var landets hovedstad, men som ennå har flere hovedstadsfunksjoner, med bl.a. presidentens kontor og flere regjeringskontorer. Colombo er også Sri Lankas finansielle sentrum.

Clarion Hotel Royal Christiania i Oslo stengte dørene i dag 22. desember, for en omfattende ombygging og totalrenovering av hotellet, skriver TravelNews.

? Jeg vil benytte anledningen til å takke alle gjester og ansatte som har bodd og jobbet på hotellet. Det strider selvfølgelig i mot alle celler i kroppen min å stenge dørene på hotellet, det er jo et sted som alltid skal være åpent, men det er på tide å fornye dronninga. Etter to år vil vi kunne introdusere et nytt hotell i Oslo, sier direktør André Schreiner til nettstedet.
