New Year 2019: 4 places to watch fireworks in Dubai
Head early to secure the best spot.
If ringing in the New Year for you is about being out on the streets and celebrating it with friends and strangers alike, there are plenty of places in Dubai.
Right from the dhow cruises to four-course lavish dinners to watching fireworks, free of cost, there is something for everybody.
Below are the four places you can watch the fireworks on New Year's Eve:
If you have seen the fireworks at the Burj Khalifa, you know that nobody does fireworks better than them.
This year, Emaar has promised a spectacle that integrates amazing LED shows, laser displays and spellbinding fireworks at the Burj Khalifa.
Don't forget that roads around the Burj Khalifa are closed well in advance to avoid traffic. Thousands of revellers across the world gather to watch the fireworks, so reach by early evening.
The event will be telecast live on televisions globally and beamed on big screens in Downtown Dubai. The experience can be watched online at www.mydubainewyear.com.
Atlantis fireworks, Palm Jumeirah
Get ready for a pyrotechnics show at the Palm Jumeirah this year. For a free viewing, head to Jumeirah's boardwalk and settle in to watch the fireworks. The fireworks will mark a 10-second countdown to midnight.
Burj Al Arab
Dubai's iconic seven-star hotel, the Burj Al Arab, will host its highly anticipated fireworks to ring in the New Year.
Against the backdrop of the Arabian Sea, watch as the fireworks illuminate the hotel's distinct architecture.
The place gets packed soon, so head to the Kite Beach in advance to grab the right spot. You can take a picnic basket to enjoy your meals and spend time with your family.
Or you can book a table at the endless cafes and restaurants at Madinat Jumeriah to enjoy your last meal in 2018.
