We present to your attention the best sites for viewing salutes in the UAE.
The offensive of 2019 will be celebrated on a large scale not only in the center of Dubai, but also in all the emirates.
Burj Khalifa: this year, after a two-year break, salutes will return to the tallest building in the world - the Burj Khalifa skyscraper. The light show will be supported by the dance of the Dubai Fountain. You can watch from Souk Al Bahar or Burj Plaza, however you have to come in advance. The best option is to book a table in a restaurant overlooking the very heart of Dubai and celebrate the New Year comfortably and in good company.
Burj Al Arab: by tradition, the most fashionable hotel in Dubai will also give festive salutes. You can watch them from the nearest beaches - Kite Beach or Umm Suqeim Beach - on the one hand, or from the restaurants of Madinat Jumeirah complex - on the other.
Global Village: as we already wrote, the Global Village fair has planned a cascade of fireworks - they will start at 20.00 and will decorate the sky every hour until 01:00, when guests can celebrate New Year's Eve Moscow time. Salutes will be visible from anywhere in the fair.
Festival City: Dubai Festival City shopping mall has also planned several shows, and fireworks will start already at 21.00. In addition to fireworks, guests will enjoy a special show of water and fire IMAGINE. Spectators can watch the light performance from the promenade or book a table in the restaurant overlooking the water.
The Palm Jumeirah: The man-made island has always loved to be distinguished by stunning salutes, and 2019 will not be an exception. It is best to watch the extravaganza of light from the 11-kilometer promenade or from the terraces of chic hotels and apartments.
Al Majaz Waterfront: Sharjah's traditional New Year fireworks offer a view from Al Majaz Waterfront, a traditionally crowded tourist area. Festive volleys will complement the show of the musical fountain.
Yas Island: an island known for its entertainment, this New Year's Eve will also not save on salutes. You can watch them from the promenade, where festivals traditionally unfold, or from the nearest restaurants - for example, Mr Miyagi or Cipriani, who also provided their New Year's program.
Al Maryah Island: The Capital Celebrates gathers in the very center of the city about 12 thousand guests for the capital's event. Two Arab stars will perform - Amr Diab and Maryam Fares. Admission is free, but it is recommended to come in advance to take the best places.
Emirates Palace: the most luxurious hotel in the capital will arrange a salute on the famous beach. By the way, this year the guests of Abu Dhabi will have a unique opportunity to celebrate the New Year in the company of their favorite artists - Ani Lorak, Alexander Revva and Oleg Gazmanov, who will launch the new event - the Festival of Russian Music.
