Exploring Dubai - NYE in DXB?

The music of fireworks is near! Jingle bell will be coming first. But lets head to the main event NYE. On the budget? Well. Same here!  So what's your plan for NYE?

My 2013 NYE - Palm Jumeirah

My 2013 NYE was probably the best fireworks experience ever. They had this Guinness World record for the entire Palm Jumeirah fireworks performance and longest ever. So happened my temporary apartment stay had a balcony that actually had a beautiful view of the palm. And its on the 51 level. Definitely by chance and by luck. I hit jackpot. 

My 2014 NYE - Burj Khalifa

My second year NYE was pretty amazing itself. Watching the Burj Khalifa fireworks. World tallest structure. We went to this peaceful park called the Business Bay Skate Park. It is along with residential buildings having a park area with row of restaurants and stalls. Not very crowded. Plenty of parking spaces. At this fireworks location, you have complete beautiful view of the entire area. It was an amazing experience while having a lovely picnic.

My 2015 NYE - Atlantis the Palm

Another lovely and fulfilling NYE night out. 2015 NYE we went to an open area nearby zero gravity (where you do the Palm Jumeirah sky diving). At this fireworks spot, you not only get a beautiful night view of the Dubai Marina landscape, also having clear view towards the Atlantis The Palm. A very peaceful area with stalls or much crowd. While watching party cruise ship heading out to the ocean. Getting to watch fireworks from both Altantis the Palm and slightly further behind Jumeirah Beach Residence.

2016 NYE - What's Next?

Stay Tuned.

I bet NYE is quite the scene in Dubai. Would be nice with the cooler weather too.

Yes, people grow old and yes, he has done us proud but you can't go on forever, should just retire gracefully. How long can we keep flogging the old horse?
