The Burj Khalifa Had More Uber Trips Than Disneyland This Year

American ride-hailing company, Uber, has just released its 2019 rankings of most-Ubered international landmarks and Dubai’s iconic landmark, the Burj Khalifa has ranked higher than Disneyland, Buckingham Palace and The Vatican. The world’s tallest building, which attracts around two million visitors every year, was the seventh most visited tourist attraction in the world in 2019 according to Uber.

Topping the prolific list is New York City’s Empire State Building which “reigns supreme as the most frequently Ubered-to tourist attraction” according to Uber’s findings. Lower Manhattan’s Freedom Tower ranks second followed by Toronto’s CN Tower and Paris’ Arc de Triomphe in third and fourth place respectively. The Eiffel Tower sits in fifth place followed by yet another Parisian landmark, The Louvre. The Burj Khalifa ranks in seventh place and is the only Middle Eastern tourist attraction in Uber’s top 10 most visited international landmarks.
