In June, Dubai Tour Pro reported that Dubai will be reopened for normal life on July 7th. And we showed how to travel to Dubai despite the Coronavirus; as well as how to stay safe through the pandemic in Dubai.
On July 7th the city truly reopened and Burj Khalifa celebrated it welcoming visitors on its LED-illuminated facade with the Dubai Fountain. One wouldn’t expect less as July 7 marked a big day for Dubai, given that travel restrictions have persisted for three months.
In a true Dubai style, the tallest building in the world was lit up in a stunning show. The huge LED screen (which is also the world’s largest) flashed red, purple and blue, with the simple greeting: “Welcome back to Dubai”.
A video, posted to the official Dubai Media Office Twitter account, shows the spectacle taking place in front of the famous Dubai Fountains. Eagle-eyed observers are seen wearing masks and social distancing, taking pictures and waving with their families.
