Boasting the world’s tallest building and home to some of the world’s most luxurious beaches, Dubai is no stranger to extremes. It comes as no surprise, then, that the city hosts one of the world’s most incredible firework displays. It has set the world record twice for the largest displays and used a massive 1.6 tonnes of pyrotechnics to ring in 2016. The display usually incorporates the 828-metre Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world which looks even more impressive when there are giant shards of light emanating from each of the floors causing it to resemble a giant sparkler. If you’re a fan of fireworks, you have to experience this stunning display.
If you’d like to experience arguably the world’s most incredible firework display, head to Dubai. There are regular flights from the UK into the city’s Dubai International Airport with direct flights from London. From there, jump in a taxi or on a bus to get to the centre. The city’s fireworks are divided into three segments, taking place one after the other, each at a different location across Dubai. Starting off at the Burj Khalifa, the display then moves on to the Burj Al Arab followed by a show at The Beach. If you’re in the city, you’re unlikely to miss the display wherever you are but most people find the best viewpoints either downtown or on the Kite or Palace Beaches.
