Dubai's New Year's Show Possibly Best in the World

New Year 2013 Dubai

Dubai has taken New Year's celebrations to the next level with their count down and fireworks. It is difficult to put in words how visually amazing the show was that I advise you to watch the spectacle online. The majority of the fireworks were launched off of the Burj Khalifa which gave a unique vertical Launchpad that made this year's celebration truly special.

The iconic New Year’s Eve Gala in Downtown Dubai, the most prestigious square kilometre on earth, set an impressive global milestone as one of the world’s most attended single events, attracting more than 1 million people from across the globe, with a 35-minute long spectacular countdown celebration.

The Downtown Dubai New Year’s Eve Gala featured an unparalleled display of colourful fireworks from Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, which was set for the first time to the rhythm of live orchestra. The grand fireworks followed a dazzling water, fire and light show on Burj Lake; and the live performance of the Prague Philharmonic orchestra, making the gala the most memorable so far, unmatched in scale and spectacle.
