Dubai New Year’s Eve Celebrations
Dubai New Year’s Eve party is hyping up to be the most expensive party of the year. The Australian singer would be performing at Atlantis The Palm and the NYE gala event will be one of the most sought-after places to be. It is also an interesting event as she is returning to Atlantis The Palm after fifteen years when it first opened and Kylie performed at the inaugural ceremony too.
The NYE Gala will offer a once-in-a-lifetime entertainment experience which will feature a buffet ranging from lobster and caviar to a live sushi station. The place will also have ice sculptures and a collection of over sixty-five different desserts. The ticket rates start from AED 5,900 for adults and AED 4,500 for children between the age of 4-13.
The tallest building on the planet, Burj Khalifa will also be holding its prestigious fireworks show on the last night of 2022. The tower will have a top-of-the-line laser show and pyrotechnic show that will be a resounding beacon of happiness, peace, and hope for the next year.
The Dubai fountain at the base of the building will also ‘dance’ to the tunes of the music as the laser beams will be traveling the longest distance to date. Burj Khalifa put up an extravagant LED light show on the occasion of the 51st National Day celebrations on December 2.
The NYE gala at Atlantis The Palm has been hailed as the most expensive new year’s eve party in Dubai and the tickets are up for sale with the offering of two sections called the Premier Circle and the Rogue circle both charged at AED 5,900 and 6,900 respectively for adults.
The tourist sector in Dubai has seen a tremendous increase in 2022 and 21 with almost a double-fold increase this year because of multiple global events ranging from the Dubai Expo 2020 to the FIFA world cup held in Qatar.
The world cup concluded two days ago but most of the tourists are staying back to celebrate Christmas and New year in Dubai. With a range of affordable and elite stay options, Dubai provides a magnificent hospitality service for all its visitors. This is the reason why Dubai has been chosen as one of the most preferred travel destinations in multiple surveys.
The Dubai administration is also keen to develop the economy as one of the major destinations for work and leisure. Recently, UAE has relaxed its Visa rules and this has also generated more demand among people to choose Dubai as a place for work and settlement.
The ex-pat rules and regulations in the UAE are far more liberal than other gulf countries and the quality of life is something short of exceptional. All these help create a service economy that is planning to expand more in the coming years with the administration making a grant roadmap for future development in terms of sustainability and environment-friendly policies.
Both the private and public sectors work in unison to make this goal a reality and this has been reflected in the various sustainability measures taken by big organizations like the Dubai International Airport (DXB) which is planning to convert a lot of its resources using green energy and zero emission standards. They are also continuously working to improve the visitor’s experience at DXB. All this comes together to create a truly memorable experience in Dubai.
