Ring in 2016 with a spark!

New Year's Eve fireworks in Dubai have always been a huge favourite amongst residents. Fireworks shows at Burj Khalifa, Burj Al Arab and Jumeirah Beach Residence (home to one of Better Homes Dubai key offices) are set to dazzle Dubai's skies this year as well. Do keep in mind that Dubai metro and other forms of public transport will be fully packed so watch out if you’re traveling with kids.

The Burj Khalifa fireworks this year is expected to be designed around a theme of a futuristic Dubai and the 2020 vision, highlighting the country’s achievements in 2015. The fireworks show will be followed by a brilliant audio-visual display with LED lights. If you cannot make it, worry not. No matter where you are this New Year's Eve, you can catch live streaming of the event on television and online.

We at Better Homes have put together a list of top spots to catch the world's finest, largest and most spectacular fireworks at the stroke of midnight.

1.      Downtown Dubai
Shop, sip and swirl by night here, for Downtown is a 24/7 destination. A nabe that never sleeps and never lets up, Downtown is a great spot to take in spectacular views of the fireworks. There are vantage points peppered across the community to watch the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa, light up in a majestic spark fest. Head to any of the caf├ęs here or book yourself a table at one of the many restaurants to watch the night sky light up. You can also watch the celebrations from allocated viewing locations in Burj Park and Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard. We recommend that you arrive before 6pm though.

2.      Dubai Mall
Catch the exciting events at Dubai Fountain before the fireworks. The Dubai Mall parking is expected to close early so make sure to reach early to grab the best spot. 

3.      Atlantis Palm Jumeirah
Atlantis is also expected to host dazzling fireworks this year. Great viewing spots would include spots outside of Palm Jumeirah such as Dubai Media City, Kite Beach, Jumeirah Street or any of the bars such as Zero Gravity and restaurants and lounges located on top floors in Dubai Marina.

4.      Kite Beach and Jumeirah Beach
Pack in a picnic, grab a blanket, have a barbeque, wait until 12am and get set with your friends and family to experience a night to remember. Aside from the Burj Al Arab Beach and Kite Beach, Zabeel Park and Dubai Creek Park are also good bets to enjoy the dazzling array of fireworks.

5.      Al Khail Road
Park anywhere at Al Khail Road to catch a glimpse of the magical fireworks and ring in the New Year.
