Watching New Year’s Eve fireworks in Dubai is something of a tradition. The world’s eyes are on Dubai to see the elaborate fireworks display, which is then shown all around the world.
But you know what’s better than seeing it on TV? Seeing the fireworks display in person. There are many places where you can see fireworks and indulge in a host of other activities. So, plan a New Year’s trip and apply for the easy-to-get 14 days Dubai visa. Here are the places where you can enjoy Dubai’s famed fireworks.
Fireworks at The Burj Al Arab
The world’s only 7-star hotel has one of the most elaborate fireworks show on New Year’s Eve. The Burj Al Arab looks stunning surrounded by the fireworks. This is an elaborately planned event, with some new styles of fireworks displayed every year. One of the best places to see the display is from Umm Suqeim Park near Jumeirah Park. The Jumeirah Park and the Jumeirah Beach are also great places for seeing the fireworks display. Many people come here instead of seeing the crowded places. You can definitely try this place.
Fireworks at The Dhow Cruise
Picture this. You are out on the sea and after a fun night of drinks, food, and entertainment, you witness the best fireworks display in the city. This is what you get if you book the New Year’s Eve dhow dinner cruise. Many people opt for this as there are a limited amount of people on the Dhow, and you can really have a great time. In fact, if you have a large party with you, you can even book the whole Dhow for yourself. But you have to book fast as cruises get full quite fast. Some book this and enjoy international style buffet, live entertainment and stunning views of a fully lit Dubai city.
Fireworks at The Burj Khalifa
