For right now, Airbnb has more experiences and homes to stay in that are in Dubai rather than other areas throughout the UAE. Why is this? Dubai is considered the main tourist location that has a thriving tourist economy and now has laws allowing residents to utilize Airbnb.
Airbnb was finally approved to be used by residents in the UAE in 2016 via the holiday home license that is required for homeowners to list their homes here and related sites. For this reason, the company will continue to grow as it reaches more areas and this rule is relaxed in other locations aside from Dubai.
