World’s tallest tower swaps fireworks for a huge lightshow to see in 2018
We’re getting ready for something a little bit different this New Year’s Eve, as Dubai’s most iconic landmark is preparing for a break from the norm.
NYE in Dubai is synonymous with enormous fireworks displays coming from the Burj Khalifa in Downtown Dubai (see above photo) at the stroke of midnight.
