"Travel + Leisure" says Expo 2020 Dubai, the first World Expo to be held in the Middle East, will propel travel to the region in 2020.
The 173-day event is promising "eye-catching, mind-bending, taste bud-tickling, grin-inducing, good-weird, did-that-really-just-happen fun." More than 200 restaurants, 192 country pavilions, 60 daily shows and 15 hours of seven-day-a-week entertainment will provide the whole world in one place.
In the coming years, the city has plans to debut a super-fast hyperloop train to travel to and from Abu Dhabi, and (seriously) flying taxis. Watch for this city to be on trending lists for a long time yet.
