    Firework’s Party at Sky Cost Millions of Dollars – The New Record Set by UAE

     

    “UAE’s six minute beautiful display, using millions of fireworks created a rock party at sky and has broke the previous world record”

     

    This New Year’s Eve, for the people of Dubai was a like a rock party on sky, hosted by fireworks.  The sky started to glow as the clock struck twelve and kept glowing for the next six minutes. This display covered around ninety four kilometers of the Dubai coast, which gloats an archipelago of human created island “The Palm Jumeirah” and the world’s tallest tower “Burj Khalifa”.

     

    According to Guinness world records enough fireworks were used in the first few minutes of the display in order to break the last record set by Kuwait in 2011 where they continued it for an hour and used around 77300 fireworks.

    The center of the display was the most expensive and luxurious hotel “The Atlantis Hotel” and the tallest tower of the world “Burj Khalifa”. Both of them captured the attention of the whole of Dubai. A colorful rainbow was seen at night by the people of Dubai on New Year’s Eve.

     

    The preparations for this display were started ten months back and cost around six million dollars. A US firm “Grucci” designed this whole fireworks party. They used hundreds of computers and technicians to create a smooth flow and synchronization of the fireworks and it was a huge success. 

     

    Dubai is now the most favorite tourist attraction of the world since they have the world’s tallest tower, the tallest fountain, one of the beautiful man-made island and the busiest and amazing airport. Not only this they have a great tourist attraction at Dubai’s Downtown. Some amazing and adventures stuff have been created there to captures tourist attraction like speed boats, air shows, personal Dubai tour from sky, paragliding, fountain show near Dubai Mall, Ski Dubai at the Mall of Emirates and the list continues.

     

    Dubai is now being the most prominent mark on the world’s map by having such amazing stuff for tourists and now created a world record by doing an amazing welcome of this New Year. The next event that is to be featured soon in Dubai is the Expo 2020 which has been won by Dubai under the theme “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future”.

    This seems an amazing thought because in today’s world of technology, a single country, an individual human being or a certain community if combines, can create a great and the most remarkable thing. And now it’s the turn of UAE to host this and earn enormous amount of revenue from tourists.

     

    This New Year seems to be the most amazing and lucrative year for UAE, a great amount of revenue is predicted to be coming to Dubai this year and it will make its position in world’s map stronger. Dubai is now the most preferred place to work and live these days due to its attraction, investment opportunities and it’s the records being set by Dubai every now and then. It’s also heard that education will get boost as well this year in Dubai since online education is the next step for them now.
