5 free places in Dubai to celebrate New Years Eve

There’s no doubt that Dubai is one of the best cities to celebrate New Year’s Eve in the world. But we know that these parties might be costly and you are trying to go on a budget to prepare yourself for VAT that’ll be in effect when the clock strikes midnight.

But, there are many places where you can celebrate the new year in Dubai without strain on your budget. Here are a few examples:

Burj Khalifa

Witness an official Guinness World Records title attempt with Burj Khalifa‘s light show that will replace the usual fireworks. We seriously advise you to go there very early to secure a spot with a perfect view.

City Walk

You can enjoy a bit of shopping with a great view of Burj Khalifa’s light show at midnight. Here’s another treat; Lebanese pop star Diana Haddad will throw a free concert in City Walk!

Dubai Festival City Mall

Burj Khalifa might not have fireworks but, worry not! there are multiple hotspots that will such as The Dubai Festival City Mall which announced multiple firework shows alongside live music.

Global Village

Although ticket prices are AED 15, Global village is a place where you can celebrate New Year’s Eve with other countries without actually traveling there. Seven fireworks shows are scheduled to celebrate the new year when the clock strikes midnight in The Philippines, Thailand, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, UAE, and Turkey.

Atlantis The Palm

Although Meraas announced that there will be no fireworks at Jumeirah Beach Residence, if your place has a view of the Palm Jumeirah, then you’re in for a treat! You can witness “the most spectacular fireworks display you’ll ever see at the most spectacular new year’s eve celebrations in Dubai” according to the Atlantis the Palm.
