New Year’s Eve in Dubai

New Year’s Eve in Dubai

From Dubai’s Burj Khalifa to Abu Dhabi’s Yas Island the skies would light up with the most beautiful fireworks, exhibited at 19 different locations. Before I get into the top locations and the one I actually visited and experienced, let me quickly talk about some do’s and don’t on the 31st of December in Dubai.

  • Use public transport to access any event on that day, because uber and taxi prices would be hiked due to the large crowd on that day.
  • Be cooperative and follow the instructions of the RTA and Dubai Police Personnel.
  • Do not park vehicles on the street around event area.

Now the top 19 locations where fireworks would be exhibited;

  • Burj Khalifa
  • Souk Al Bahar
  • The Address Dubai Mall and Address Downtown
  • Burj Plaza
  • Atlantis, The Palm
  • Palm Jumeirah Boardwalk
  • The Pointe
  • Burj Al Arab
  • Global Village
  • Dubai Creek Park
  • LA MER
  • Abu Dhab
  • Al Maryah Island
  • Sheikh Zayed Heritage Festival
  • Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium
  • Yas Island
  • Emirates Palace
  • Al Marjan Island, Ras Al Khaimah
  • Al Majaz Waterfront, Sharjah


I had so many options but ended up sticking to the beach front, thats because I knew the crowd would be crazy in places like Burj Khalifa and the likes. La Mer beach front has so many restaurants, vendors and fun activities you can do while you wait for the fireworks by 12am. The free advantage point is the beach itself, where anyone can sit back and watch the sky light up. If you get there early and you are looking for where to eat, you can always stop by at Steakanji Grilled Philly Steaks and browse through the menu and select a meal, I recommend their shrimp pasta, Chicken skewers, Steak salads,Fries and Burger and a cold drink.

Looking for where to Party?

The Five palm Jumeirah Dubai is a dope place to party into the New year in Dubai. Organised with great attention to detail and makes sure that visitors have a great experience. Get there early, grab a table and party into the new year while you watch the amazing fireworks at Burj khalifa.
