From spectacular firework displays to mesmerising drone shows to illuminate the night sky, it was a New Year’s Eve to remember across the UAE as 2024 was welcomed in with true Emirati style.

Fireworks dazzled thousands of spectators who turned out at the Corniche in Abu Dhabi, while the Burj Khalifa display in Dubai signalled the end of 2023 with its trademark annual show.

Few cities around the world can match the firework displays seen across Dubai, while 800 drones took to the skies for two displays at 8pm and 10pm at Jumeirah Beach Residence and Bluewaters, with synchronised lights projected on to Ain Dubai, the world’s highest observation wheel.
