Dubai New Year's Eve fireworks are returning to the Burj Khalifa

It's going to be a massive New Year's Eve celebration at the Burj Khalifa for 2018 this year, with fireworks once again returning to the tallest building in the world to shepherd in 2019.

Officials had previously replaced the massive December 31 display with a laser light show amid safety concerns.

But Emaar has now announced that the fireworks will be coming back alongside a spectacular New Year's Eve Gala featuring special Dubai Fountain performances.

Dubai is known for its unmissable and unmistakable fireworks displays at the turn of the year.

Having set world records in the past, it’s not surprising that this city becomes an even bigger tourist attraction as New Year’s Eve approaches, with international visitors flocking to town to witness the show-stopping pyrotechnics.

The event will be beamed to television screens around the world and onto big screens in Downtown Dubai.

There will also be special viewing platforms to give crowds all over a good view of the celebrations. More details will be released closer to the time.

And even better, if you just fancy putting your feet up at home you can watch the experience online at mydubainewyear.com.

It's going to be an incredible New Year's Eve.
Dec 31. Downtown Dubai. For more information, go to mydubainewyear.com.
