Finding a good vantage point for the New Year fireworks which is not in Downtown Dubai or crowded is next to impossible.
When we realized that we had an unhindered view of the Burj from the rooftop parking at Mirdiff City Center, we prided ourselves on having found a vantage point that didn’t involve suffocating crowds and hours long traffic jams. Sure it was insanely far but hey, the Burj is the tallest building in the world and fireworks are easy to see from a distance. No biggie.
So off we went to MCC, had dinner, made our way to the roof at midnight and… couldn’t see the Burj.
What we hadn’t factored in our brilliant plan was fog. Because it was so far away, a slight haze was all it took for us to see next to nothing.
Most. Flop. Plan. Ever.
