Welcome 2017 from Burj Khalifa

Hello my lovely readers!! Ok, so before I proceed I would like to wish everyone a very very Happy New Year. May Allah make this year best for all of you and for the whole world Ameen.

I am kinda excited for today’s post and the reason is Dubai 😍. With each passing day my love for this place is growing and I am loving this feeling. I came Dubai last year in Nov and on that note this was my 2nd new year here but the 1st year to witness the gorgeous, mesmerising and spectacular celebration of New Year. Last year we couldn’t make and saw the fireworks from our roof top. We were able to see the entire fireworks skyline in one frame but it was too far to capture the beauty.

This year we both wanted to go desperately and my husband finally picked Burj Khalifa for celebration.Although fireworks does happen on various locations like Jumeirah, The Palm and this year it was on Dubai Water Canal and Dubai Festival City too.

We knew from resources that in order to reach the location on time its recommended to leave as early as you could. We left our place at 3:30 pm and parked our car at Business Bay and walked for around 20-25 mins to reach the venue.

Ok so once we reached we realized that we wanted to go to the mall side of Burj  Khalifa so that we could also see the LED show of countdown on Burj and the location we reached was the opposite side.

Anyways we decided to walk back and we asked the security people to guide us the way . On walking back guess who we saw ?? Atif Aslam , yes he was there and we took a selfie with him yay 🙂

A day before new year eve he had a concert here in Dubai but we couldn’t go and honestly I wanted to go so bad, infact I wanted to go to every concert happened in past 😜. Anyways that’s not the point of this post , Haina 😂

Since we were going the other side a security guard told us that there is no point to go there cox they won’t allow anyway and we decided kay bhayee ab yahin ruk jao. And thank God we listened to the guard cox later we find out that side required a PASS. Shukar ALLAH ka .

It was 5:30 pm when we sat on grass and from there a long wait started.

We had dinner there , we saw almost all fountain shows and then finally the time came when we saw such amazing and no doubt the world’s best fireworks. Before I end this post I would say that it was WORTH THE EXPERIENCE and if I get the chance I would love to see them next year too IN SHA ALLAH. So for all those who think its  a waste of time and energy all I can say come early to avoid traffic and to reach the location on time. And then its like a family picnic lol. Everyone was enjoying with their friends and families. Kids were playing board games, having snacks and what not !!!
