SAW is located on the Asian side of the town and serves more for LCC pax and locals for overseas destinations. Typical tourists from UAE/Dubai prefer to land at IST (the bigger airport on the European side) and accomodate/visit/shop on the European side. Almost no nothing yet as a tourist attraction (for Arabs as well as non-Arabs) on the Asian side: just a few malls for shopping.
