If celebration for you is luxury and extravagance, then head over to such mind blowing locations as Downtown Dubai that is home to some of the world-renowned attractions, such as Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall, and The Palm – the only man-made island in the world. The enchanting firework at Burj Khalifa is a sight to behold and definitely a must-see, especially if you’re a first timer in Dubai. Moreover, this year, Atlantis The Palm is all set to enthrall the visitors and enter the Guinness Book of World Record by displaying the world’s largest fireworks, with approximately 450,000 multi-hued fireworks that will be choreographed for six minutes.
Another luxurious spot to celebrate New Year in Dubai is Burj Al Arab, which hosts a sumptuous party on the eve of New Year in accompaniment to mesmerizing fireworks and amazing live performances. Equally spectacular is Festival City that not only puts at your disposal an astounding range of dining and entertainment choices but also enthralls with you its unique fireworks show on its Festival Stage at Festival Marina. Further, the fervor and zeal offered by Dubai’s such venues as Meydan is hard to resist for a fervent party-goer.
For those looking for an off the beaten venue to celebrate New Year in Dubai, perhaps nothing could surpass an overnight safari to the Arabian dunes. With traditionally set Bedouin camp, BBQ cuisines, live entertainment by way of belly dance and Tanura, and henna tattooing, the New Year celebration in desert will for sure be an experience of lifetime. Also, a unique way to celebrate New Year in Dubai is to take a special dinner cruise along the calm waters of Dubai Marina or Dubai Creek.
