New Years 2009 in Dubai CANCELLED by the Sheikh

January 4th, 2009 · No Comments

For those visitors to our website who didn’t find much going on in Dubai and complained to us “that our site was useless” here’s the explanation of why our exploration of new years celebrations in Dubai this year left us a little empty handed.

In the final days of the year the Sheikh of Dubai decided to cancel all New Years celebrations and commanded every hotel in the city to not have outdoor music and fireworks or they would be fined. Sorry for you folks who were planning on celebrating in Dubai. Unfortunately the big man felt no reason to celebrate the end of 2008 as yet another Israeli – Palestinian war was being ignited.
