Dubai’s Road and Transport Authority (RTA) has arranged 60 buses to take people from Dubai Internet City (DIC) to Sandance Beach at Atlantis, Palm Juemeirah to watch the fireworks set to take place at midnight today.

RTA expects to move 17,000 people from DIC to the vantage point on the beach to watch today’s spectacular fireworks show.

The arrangements to take people to Sandance beach has been well organised by RTA but it advices that people should use public transport instead of cars for going to DIC.

It promises to be a night of epic proportions, one that will certainly go down in history, as Dubai sets its sights on a world record amidst all the razzle dazzle and fanfare this city has mastered .

While The Palm Jumeirah and The World Islands will play host to a glittering display of fireworks that will attempt the colossal task of setting off over 400,000 fireworks across 100km of shoreline, in just six minutes to set a new Guinness World Record, at the other end of the city stands the towering Burj Khalifa.
