Dubai New Years Eve 2019
Dubai New Years Eve 2019 Dubai’s legendary NYE celebrations are the highlight of the year. If you are staying during NYE, here’s our guide to the best places to catch the spectacular show.
BURJ KHALIFA LIGHT UP 2019 | DOWNTOWN DUBAI
A never-before-seen spectacle is set to be unveiled this New Year’s Eve in Downtown Dubai. Visitors are sure to be enthralled by Light Up 2019, a stunning laser and light show in the heart of the city.
Burj Khalifa/The Dubai Fountain
There’s no better spot to watch the biggest New Year’s Eve celebration in Dubai than from the footsteps of the Burj Khalifa, itself. Thousands gather along the waterfront of the Dubai Fountain to catch the spectacular light and water show at midnight so make sure to head down there if you are staying in Downtown Dubai. If you are coming from other parts of the city, arrive as early as 6pm to grab a top spot, or make a booking at one of the many restaurants. Plan ahead as roads and access to the Downtown area are restricted on the night for crowd control.
Palm Jumeirah Boardwalk
The just-launched 11km boardwalk along the crescent of the manmade Palm Jumeirah will be the place to be on the Palm this NYE. Stretching all the way from the One&Only, The Palm to the other end, the walkway has numerous spots for visitors to watch the fireworks at Atlantis, as well as the Burj Al Arab and Burj Khalifa from the Rixos-end of the crescent. Bear in mind that access to the Palm is typically restricted to control traffic on NYE.
Palm Jumeirah hotels
Several of the hotels on the Palm, including Anantara, Kempinski, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, Rixos and Waldorf Astoria all have prime viewing spots of the fireworks and will host their own NYE soirees.
