Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates has been emerging as one of the top destinations to travel in the world. After being named as the world's safest city to live in, now Abu Dhabi has topped the list of trending travel destinations.

Opodo, a travel agency company, has revealed the top 10 trending travel destinations that have experienced the biggest growth in 2017. The list was made to mark the World Tourism Day, which was on September 27.

According to Opodo, Abu Dhabi has topped the list with an increase in the bookings in 2017. The capital city of UAE witnessed a 326 percent increase in the bookings this year. The growth is mostly because of the opening of the museum Louvre in November '17.
