Or head over to Dubai Festival City Mall where an ‘Imagine show’ is set to be turned into a fire, lasers and lights show, and will play Saudi music until Monday night.

We also can’t wait to see Burj Khalifa lit with the Saudi flag tonight! Along with a special Dubai Fountain rendition of the country’s national anthem.
