Diwali would not be the same without fireworks, and Dubai knows how to put on an unforgettable show. This year, there will be grand fireworks displays at Festival Bay in Dubai Festival City (18 and 24 October at 7:45pm and 8pm, respectively), The Pointe at Palm Jumeirah
(26 October, 9pm) and Al Seef
by the Creek (27 October, 8:30pm). Head over early to secure the best vantage point or make an evening of it by enjoying dinner at nearby restaurants such as Mitra – an Indian fusion bistro at the Heritage Zone of Al Seef, or Peppermill at Dubai Festival City Mall
that presents prime waterfront views.
