The 800 drones taking over Bluewaters’ skies for the Dubai Shopping Festival are the true show-stopper.

Burj Khalifa Fireworks Dubai

Since its official opening in 2010, the Burj Khalifa has consistently brought in the New Year with a bang. It is without a doubt one of the locations with the most breathtaking fireworks displays in the world. 

 We suggest making a reservation for a seat at a restaurant in Souk Al Bahar or the Dubai Mall. Moreover, fireworks are coordinated with lights and lasers to produce life-changing experiences for spectators worldwide as well as for locals and inhabitants. During the New Year’s Eve fireworks, the entire skyscraper is transformed into a massive LED screen. 

Even though the evening is filled with enthusiasm, peak crowds start to form at least a few hours in advance. Make sure to reserve your spot in advance, or plan to arrive very early—roughly 8 p.m.

Outstanding fireworks will light up the night sky in a dynamic performance timed with lights and music on December 31, as the countdown to midnight draws near. You may be wondering where to see the best fireworks show in the city because there are so many different view locations. 

The flowing fountains at the base of the Burj Khalifa offer a special viewing position for the fireworks show. For a peek at the famous skyline, visit Souk Al Bahar, which has eateries and stores with views of the lake and Burj Khalifa. 

For the best views of the performance in the sky, position yourself along the Downtown Dubai waterfront boardwalk by the Dubai Opera House. Or lay down on Kite Beach to watch the fireworks with a picnic basket and a blanket wrapped around you.
