New Year’s Eve in Dubai is truly an incredible spectacle. The whole sky above the city is lit by fireworks on a scale unseen anywhere else in the world. The holiday spirit is felt everywhere and the city is full of happy celebrating people. Each venue is ready to meet guests and everyone can find an interesting offer.
It wouldn’t be a mistake to say that late December is one of the best times to visit Dubai, but keep in mind that planning your trip in advance may be a good idea, as hotels are usually packed during this season, and late tickets might cost a little bit more that you expect.
Most famous fireworks you can see if you visit the iconic Burj Khalifa or The Pointe at Palm Jumeirah. This is an unforgettable sight! Multiple times Dubai’s fireworks were even noted in the Guinness Book of Records as the largest and longest in the world (in 2009 and 2014).
It is also a good idea to find a place in advance to observe the fireworks. For example, this may be a restaurant somewhere at The Pointe, as well as Dubai Festival City, The Dubai Mall, and Souk Al Bahar. The cost of booking your spot in such a location might be costly as well, so double-check the offers in advance.
Of course, if you watch the fireworks from the street, you will definitely get an excellent experience too.
If you don’t want to stay in the city, you can have a more exotic option — spend New Year’s Eve in the desert or book a cruise over the Arabian Gulf. A different but equally interesting atmosphere is waiting for you, it is a really good idea for New Year’s Eve. Be sure to make a proper search for available options, you will find something interesting. And every year something new appears.
And not surprisingly, every year thousands of people from around the world come to Dubai for New Year’s celebration and have a great time in the festive atmosphere of the city. This also means that every 31st of December, roads around Dubai become overwhelmed with vehicles, so plan your trip accordingly.
Nevertheless, every New Year’s eve is a joy for every resident and guest, and we wish the same to you!
