Dubai named no.1 city for New Year's Eve

Survey is based on trending searches for flights

Dubai named no.1 city for New Year's Eve

Dubaiis famous for its extravagant New Year's Eve fireworks, parties and celebrations.

Therefore it is no surprise that the city has been named the number one location to ring in 2016 by a new global study.

According to a poll carried out by Kayak.com, the city beat the likes of Chicago, Barcelona, Tokyo and Rio de Janeiro.

The top 10 doesn’t feature the likes of New York City, Sydney or London, which are big favourites around the globe. However, it must be noted that the survey is based on trending searches for flights.

Since 2014, Dubai searches have increased by 70 percent according to the website’s Travel Hacker Guide. It’s thought to be down to more affordable flights from cities around the world and, of course, the famous firework shows.

The full list includes:

1. Dubai, UAE
2. Cartagena, Colombia
3. Barcelona, Spain
4. Reykjavik, Iceland
5. Tokyo, Japan
6. Atlanta, GA
7. Santiago, Chile
8. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
