A crowd of around 600 thousand revellers in Dubai celebrate New Year’s Eve as the world’s tallest tower, the Burj Khalifa, is lit up in a dazzling fireworks display.
[Sophie Jahn, Financial Consultant]:
“It's awesome! It’s great! The fireworks, everything is amazing. […] There are no words for it. It’s amazing and the fireworks remain for like 9, 10 minutes. I’ve never seen something so incredible!”
According to Dubai Police, overcrowding was a problem at last year’s celebration.
But the authorities claim that this year’s preparations anticipate hundreds of thousands of visitors and they expect a smooth welcoming of the New Year.
[Nazan Nobakht, Shipping Manager]:
“And I think it was lovely tonight, we enjoyed it a lot and thank you to everyone, Happy New Year, Happy 2012! I wish you all the best in this New Year.”
