NYE 2008 Pics - Dubai

Hey Guys

Thought id share NYE 2008 in Dubai.

while i expected the fireworks to be much more spectacular, they were actually quite modest and miniature by Dubais' standards. everything here seems to be the best, biggest, tallest, most, richest, most expensive etc.

It by no means rivals Sydneys fireworks. ive spent NYE on Sydney Harbour and its is quite breathtaking and awe inspiring..it really is.

And while i do think that there will come a time when Dubais fireworks will out do everybody else, this years was good..but maybe it was just my expectations that let me down.

nevertheless, i took a few good pics.. enjoy the fireworks with the Burj al Arab as the backdrop

Nice pictures! I missed the fireworks I was supposed to see on NYE, these pictures make a good replacement.

Nice pictures.

It always cracks me up when we're out somewhere in a crowd the number of people taking pictures with cellphones. I see they do that same thing everywhere.

Neat. I think next year we should all try to show shots of NYE wherever we are... that would be cool.

Hopefully next year I'll have a more exciting NYE...somehow playing battlegrounds in World of Warcraft just isn't picture-worthy.

Great pics, dlish You are so fortunate to be in Dubai. It really is the place to be these days. Crazy.

you know what ustwo.. ive always thought that your handle was pretty lame, but i was just nice about it.

besides.. this is the wrong thread buddy.

Fotzlid - thats the Burj al Arab - to my knowledge, one of only two seven star hotels in the world

snowy - its nice now, but try saying that in summer!
