(MENAFN Press) With Dubai set to host not just one but multiple displays of the most incredible firework displays in the world this New Year's Eve, there is simply no better city in which to welcome in 2014. For those of you looking for information on the best places to catch the excitement, Dubai Calendar brings you the top five Dubai destinations guaranteed to help you make the most of the firework fantasia. For further information and to join the conversation during the festivities, follow and use #NewYearDubai on Twitter.

1] The Palm Jumeriah and Madinat Jumeirah: If you're lucky enough to have booked a hotel or restaurant on the Palm, Madinat Jumeirah or along the shoreline in Jumeirah or Dubai Marina then you'll have a ringside seat for Dubai's attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest ever fireworks display. With approximately 450,000 fireworks planned to go off over a six minute period on the Palm Jumeirah and The World islands, it's sure to be nothing short of spectacular. The show will be followed by a 15 minute long awe-inspiring firework display from the iconic Burj Al Arab. This is one not to be missed!

2] Downtown Dubai: The Centre of Now will once again welcome hundreds of thousands of visitors eager to see one of the most inspiring displays on the planet as Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building, lights up with fireworks from its base to its spire. With ideal access and viewing points from the Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard, the Waterfront Promenade near The Dubai Fountain, and restaurants in and around The Dubai Mall and Souk Al Bahar, as well as Burj Park, Burj Plaza, and the various hotels in Downtown Dubai, this is an event that every visitor and resident should experience at least once in their lifetimes. And of course, viewing is free and the metro will be running all night on 1 January to help get you home again once the celebrations are over. Visitors are advised to be in Downtown Dubai by 8pm.

3] Dubai Festival City: On the other side of town? Then why not head on over to the Creekside at Dubai Festival City and catch the traditional celebratory fireworks display as the clock strikes midnight. As well as the 'oohs and ahhs' from the crowd at DFC, the fireworks will be accompanied by a synchronized light and water show that is sure to surprise and delight.

4] Public beaches at JBR and Jumeirah: Pack a blanket and a midnight feast and head off to the beach. Welcome in the New Year in the company of thousands of other residents and visitors at any of a dozen spots along the coastline from JBR to Umm Suqeim to Jumeirah in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere against the backdrop of more fireworks than anyone has ever seen before in one place at one time. What more could you ask for as a New Year's wish?

5] Your own home: For one of the best seats in the house, turn on your TV, settle down on your sofa and prepare to be dazzled! Dubai TV, Sama Dubai and Dubai One will be bringing you all of the action and excitement while you relax in your armchair. Featuring the displays from The Palm Jumeirah and the World, Downtown Dubai and Burj Khalifa, and Burj Al Arab, Dubai's very own TV channels will be beaming the very best shots of the shows - including amazing aerial views - live and direct to your living room. Nothing could be easier!
