Dubai is a great place to celebrate the Lunar New Year. With its stunning fireworks, excellent restaurants, and shopping, Dubai embraces Asia's most massive holiday and adds its local flair. The epicenter of festivities is Dubai Chinatown. Expect to see plenty of red and gold decorations, lion and dragon dances, cultural performances, and much more. Dragon Mart is another brightly-decorated place in Dubai, hosting LNY festivities.

Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building, puts on laser and light show dedicated to Chinese New Year. Shows start at 8 pm and 10 pm and can be properly observed from Downtown District.

Dubai Opera, Dubai Parks and Resorts, offer unique live entertainment and decor. At Motiongate Dubai, Legoland Dubai, and Riverland Dubai there are always Chinese-themed programs and characters. Also, there is a grand Chinese New Year Temple Fair, organized by Dubai Parks and Resorts.

The most upscale celebration includes dinner and show at Atlantis, The Palm Jumeirah. The most photographed hotel in Dubai hosts special Chinese feasts and live performances with a lion dance and more. The menu features lucky dishes to enter the New Year in the right way.
