If you are planning to visit Dubai for your New Year holidays, you’re in for a treat. According to Forbes magazine, Dubai has been ranked as one of the trendiest destinations for New Year’s Eve. The main reason for this is the variety of different things you can do in Dubai to make your New Year celebrations amazing. Have a look at 5 popular ways to celebrate New Year in Dubai.
Watch the Spectacular Fireworks
Each year, the New Year celebrations in Dubai outdo the celebrations of the previous years with mesmerising displays of fireworks at the three iconic landmarks, namely Burj Al Arab, The Burj Khalifa and Palm Jumeirah. On New Year’s Eve, these places are packed with revellers who start to arrive as early as 4 PM, so if you want to grab a good vantage point it’s better to arrive early. You can picnic with your family on the viewing points or book a table at any nearby rooftop restaurant to enjoy the fireworks. To enjoy the spectacle without stepping out of your hotel room, watch the fireworks display on television or the Burj Khalifa fireworks display live on YouTube.
Attend one of the dazzling New Year’s Eve parties
Every year, several places in Dubai organise extravagant and lavish New Year’s Eve parties. These parties stand out from the parties hosted elsewhere because of the sheer magnitude and attention to the details. The performances by superstars, dazzling firework displays and the plush treatment its guests make one feel like a VIP. Most of the 5-star hotels organise gala New Year celebrations. Prominent venues are Nasimi Beach, where the oldest New Year party celebrations are held in Dubai, Barasti Bar at the Le Meridien and Sandance beach at the Atlantis to name a few.
