A phenomenal amalgamation of fire and light, this year's fireworks are expected to be much bigger and grander setting another record. Nobody wants to miss this, so make sure to get a good vantage point.

The interesting part? It is free for all!

Few spots to soak in the view of Burj Khalifa Fireworks are-

- Near Dubai Mall, by the Dubai fountain, the area would be swamped several hours before the display because it has the most intimate outlook.
- The balconies of the Dubai Mall facing the Burj are also a fancy spot.
- Across the Dubai Mall is the Souk Al Bahr which is a fantastic dining and lifestyle destination. While away the time before the countdown in browsing through the attire, jewellery, and artefacts. An advance booking in the restaurant could help you reserve the best spot for the view.
- Burj Plaza offers an uninterrupted sight because of its strategic location down the road of Dubai Mall. It is ideal for families as it has kid zones, boat rides, dancing fountain and restaurants.

Palm Jumeirah

Amongst the three iconic Palm Islands, the Jumeirah is the first finished manmade marvel replicating the pattern of a palm tree. Jutting out of the striking coastline, it is packed with opulent hotels, beachfront villas, and tall skyscrapers. On the precious occasion of the New Year, the entire island is submerged in bursts of lights and colours.

And the ideal place to watch the fireworks is the 11km stretched Boardwalk. At one side of the crescent, you can spy the Burj Khalifa fireworks too.

The Pointe is the next best spot to ring in the new year with the festivities of Jumeirah. It has more than 80 shops, restaurants and attractions to keep you engaged and waiting for the big event. Reserve a table at the waterside restaurant to dine with a view.

Burj Al Arab

The signature luxury destination, Burj Al Arab is the opulent 5-star hotel, shaped like a sail on the coastline. There's nothing better than witnessing the goliath structure light up at the New Year's Eve. It is like sheer magic in front of the eyes and you might be wonderstruck as long as it goes.

Upgrade the entertainment by packing a picnic along the shores of Kite Beach. Or hit the Jumeirah beach that is brimming with over dozens of activities, from boozing and clubbing to shopping and gobbling.

To lounge and dine, Madinat Jumeirah is another great choice.

Atlantis, The Palm

This majestic 5-star resort is an awe-inspiring place to visit this New Year if you couldn't make it to the above-mentioned places. It is sprawling with endless fun, unlimited flowing champagne, roaring cheers, a sumptuous buffet, delectable dessert, and famous shows.
