25 PHOTOS: How Dubai Celebrated the 2020 New Year with Fireworks!

Dubai was quite busy during New Year’s Eve with over 25 places celebrating the new year with a fireworks display. In case you weren’t in these places and you just stayed at home, check out these cool pictures of different places in Dubai captured by residents, amazing photographers and spectators!

Dubai tends to make it really big when it comes to shows and events. Also, the New Year is really a big thing in this city. In fact, lots of restaurants and establishments tend to offer New Year packages especially those near fireworks hotspots like those surrounding the Burj Khalifa, Burj Al Arab, etc. You will notice that there will be buffet/eat-all-you-can evenings and people who want to get comfortable while watching the fireworks pay to dine in these places with a view.
