Don’t miss it …
Fact: Dubai knows how to celebrate and Burj Khalifa’s breathtaking New Year’s fireworks and laser show is just one way the city is proving it. The show was seen by thousands of residents who flocked to downtown Dubai and it was seen by even more across the country (and the world) via a live broadcast.
If you were one of those spectators watching the show at home, know that it’s worth checking out in person. Fortunately, you don’t have to wait a whole year to see it because the Burj Khalifa laser show (similar to what you saw on New Years Eve) will continue until March 31, 2022.
Check out a preview of the new shows here:
The elegant and energetic lighting choreography of the shows mixes with a colorful kaleidoscope of images displayed on the Burj Khalifa, which is incidentally the largest LED screen in the world. Another interesting fact for you: the height of the Burj Khalifa is 828 meters, and the LED screen spans the entire east side of the tower.
The Burj Khalifa laser show takes place Wednesday through Sunday with three shows at 7:45 p.m., 8:15 p.m. and 9:45 p.m.
And of course, the Dubai Fountain Show is also there to wow even if you’ve seen it many times. The fountains come alive every 30 minutes from 6 p.m. throughout the week. Illuminated fountain swings to melodies of popular tracks, including Michael Jackson’s Polar, Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman’s It’s time to say goodbye and much more.
To make the most of your evening, choose to dine at one of the nearby restaurants, visit the Dubai Mall for shopping, or just take a stroll around the lake before or after the shows.
