Celebrating NYE in Downtown Dubai? Watch this

Dubai: As many as 1.5 million visitors are expected to visit Downtown Dubai to usher in the New Year, leading authorities to issue a cautionary message on what pathways should be taken for bachelors and families.


As illustrated in the video, certain pathways and passages have allocated to families. The families’ pathway is highlighted in yellow, while the pathways for bachelors is coloured red.

While the Light Up 2018 event is open to the public, “separate viewing areas have been also allocated for bachelors and families,” said the announcer in the video, as the diagram explains the different routes allocated from the Dubai Mall and Financial Centre metro stations.

The video also illustrated the various viewing locations, with the Burj Khalifa Island Park, and the South Ridge reserved for families while the Burj Views is dedicated for bachelors. Families and customers at restaurants can watch the Light Show from Dubai Boulevard, Burj Plaza and Souk Al Bahar.

First aid services, lost and found services, and logistics, will also be available across sites in tents.
