Tourist guide to UAE laws and customs launched by Abu Dhabi Police
Guides to the UAE's laws and customs are being printed in Chinese by Abu Dhabi Police – as the capital enjoys a surge in tourists from the Asian country.
The popularity of attractions such as Louvre Abu Dhabi and relaxed travel regulations have led to a rise in Chinese visitors, with police launching a new initiative to ensure they remain safe and happy during their stay.
In the first quarter of this year, China was the leading international market for hotel guests, with more than 127,000 guests from the country booking stays.
The UAE introduced visas on arrival for Chinese tourists in 2016.
Abu Dhabi Police has introduced the My Tourism Is Safe campaign, to run until the end of the year, which aims to ensure visitors from all over the world are given a warm welcome in the UAE and are aware of health and police services available to them if needed.
Col Imran Ahmed Al Mazroui, director of the Criminal Investigations Department at Abu Dhabi Police, said guides to the country's laws, customs and traditions will be outlined in printed guides available in Chinese, English, French and Urdu.
The guides will include emergency numbers, cultural destinations and tourism resorts, along with guidelines for enjoying the nation’s beaches, he added.
