The Burj Khalifa in Dubai — which wows the world every New Year's Eve — promises another breathtaking show to ring in 2023: A light spectacle that will set new world records.

Come NYE, the world's tallest building and the emirate's night sky will be illuminated by dazzling beams in what is expected to be the 'world's largest laser display', the tower's master developer Emaar announced on Thursday.

According to a senior representative of the company, Emaar's spectacle will enthrall not only guests in Downtown Dubai, but also an estimated 1 billion viewers around the world.

The 828-metre Burj Khalifa will also serve as the centrepiece of a state-of-the-art laser show that will see light beams travel the "longest distance ever recorded".

Behind the grand plan is a goal to turn the skyscraper into a shining beacon of hope, happiness, and harmony for the year ahead, Emaar said.

Certainly, NYE at the Burj Khalifa won't be complete without the sparkles in the sky — so, a spectacular firework show is still part of the mega plan.

Since 2010, the renowned pyrotechnic display has been an integral part of the UAE's world-famous New Year's Eve celebrations, and 2022 will be no exception.

A mesmerising, synchronised performance by The Dubai Fountain at the base of Burj Khalifa is certain to be a crowd-pleaser on what will be a magnificent evening in every aspect.
