I travelled from UK to Dubai for NYE 2013 for the spectacular Fireworks show which was recorded in Guinness World Record. It took me about 3.5 hrs to cover 8kms of distance for the spectacular viewing spot. I know few of our dear friends were stranded and couldn’t get over to the Palm due to horrendous standstill traffic. I must admit it was well worth walking over 5kms to experience the truly fabulous fireworks show!
The show broke the previous world record held by Kuwait of 77,282 shots fired in a sustained display. Overall around 400,000 shots were fired.
We were on the beach with good DJ line ups: Emeli Sande in concert, Axwell & Paul Oakenfold
