    DUBAI (Sputnik) - The United Arab Emirates’ city of Dubai has broken the Guinness World Record of largest laser light show on single building, when the New Year’s show was projected on world’s tallest building of Burj Khalifa, Sputnik correspondent reported.

    The tens of thousands of spectators attended the “Light Up 2018” show, which have replaced the traditional fireworks near the Burj Khalifa. The visuals were projected not only at the world’s tallest building, but also at the Dubai Fountain and nearby buildings.

The Light Up 2018 doubled the previous record as the show was projected on the surface of over 109,000 square meters.
