DUBAI: Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa will mark the Chinese New Year with a spectacular dragon-themed light and sound show in Downtown Dubai.
The ‘Light Up’ show will take place twice a day from February 16 to 24 at 8pm and 10pm, paying tribute to thousands of Chinese residents in the UAE.
The 9-day laser and light show will resemble Dubai’s stunning performance during the 2018 New Year’s celebrations.
The show will begin with a flying dragon “taking flight from the Great Wall of China” and touring over Dubai’s landmarks, a statement released by Emaar said.
“The show starts with a flying dragon taking flight from the Great Wall of China, soaring high in the sky, and touring over Dubai’s landmarks including the upcoming Dubai Creek Tower before marking a splash at The Dubai Fountain,” said Emaar.
