Please have a look at the section on New Years eve in the top questions to the right of the posts page - it is a very long topic with many, many answers.

also attached as a link here


If you want people to make specific suggestions for New Years Eve then you need to be aware of how difficult it it is to travel around the city and reading the top questions section will help with that. They will also help with ideas on many other things including, things to do , a city guide, restaurants and much, much more

Also you need to tell us where you are staying - if people don't know that they may make suggestions that you have no hope of enjoying because of where you are and the challenge of getting to them.

So please help us to help you

Thank you for your reply

We are staying at the Shangri La Hotel, which I believe is Down Town.

Hi, apparently they light up the Burj Khalifa with fireworks and have heaps of things to do there. We just moved here from Aust a mnth ago to the Downtown area and can see the Khalifa from our apartment. We were warned though that it gets so crazy busy you can't drive anywhere so be prepared for limited transport but that's pretty normal anywhere in the world on NYE. Have fun, be safe and I hope u find lots to do.
