New Year's Eve Dubai, 2020: Affordable Events & Offers

With numerous spectacular & record-breaking firework displays, parties, and events, Dubai has become a New Year's Eve hotspot. Every year, tens of thousands of people from across the world come to Dubai to witness the new year spectacle. With its increasing popularity, New Year's Eve is becoming one of the most expensive holidays in the city, with table prices rising up to 4000-5000 AED. Finding an affordable location for celebrating New Year's in Dubai has become a near-impossible task.

However, there are a few secret deals that will let you enjoy an epic New Year's Eve at an affordable price, and we have searched the city to find just the right ones for you! Here are the best tricks and places for you to enjoy a not-so-costly New Year celebration.

Watch the New Year's Eve Burj Khalifa Fireworks Display for Free

As the fireworks are a widely celebrated event, many free viewing spots are available across town. But wait! There's a catch. The crowds are unbelievably massive. As expected, many people flock to these spots to watch the fireworks, and the free viewing locations get filled several hours before the actual show.

If you would like to take this inexpensive route, make sure to plan ahead. In order to score a decent place to view the fireworks from, you will have to reach the venue atleast 6-8 hours before the actual show. Even then, you will face huge crowds and constant traffic on the roads as everyone is trying to get in before it's too late.

Make sure you are comfortably dressed and have plenty of snacks to keep your energy up, the wait is going to be long and tedious as more and more people join in to watch the show. By midnight, you will most likely not have space to move around. If you're still upto to task, here are the best free fireworks viewing locations in the city:

1. The Dubai Mall
2. The Burj Plaza
3. Al Khazzan Cadillac Park
4. Dubai Design District
5. Dubai Creek Harbour
6. Bay Avenue, Business Bay
7. Gate Village, DIFC

You can read more about each of these locations on our New Year's Eve guide here

If you are accompanied by family, little children or elderly members, we would highly discourage you from taking the "free" route, as the large crowds & the long wait can be very taxing and difficult to deal with. Rather, we would recommend booking a table at a restaurant that offers great views of the fireworks so that you can ring in the new year the right way. Don't worry about the cost! The following restaurants are offering reasonable and affordable packages for a fun & affordable New Year's Eve celebration to help you celebrate without breaking the bank.
