Dubai will welcome 2018 with a series of firework extravaganzas and Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building, is not the place to watch the spectacular show.

The tallest skyscraper is surely preparing something special for the New Year's Eve gala. After setting a new world record for longest and largest fireworks display three years back, the organisers are planning to break the record for a light show this year.

The much-anticipated fireworks display will be replaced with a unique light show this year. "We will not have fireworks at JBR, Laa Mers and Al Seef this year," a representative of Meraas, the giant property developer that manages these buildings, told Khaleej Times.
