It's New Year's Eve on Saturday and you have no plans. Don't worry! You're not the only one. 

But hey...that does not mean you sit home and sulk! You can step out for people watching. Not heard of that before? Well, it's "the practice of spending time idly observing people in a public place". It might sound creepy but it's really not.

Think of it as a time to observe faces lighting up with happiness that 2016 is over and a better and brighter 2017 is (almost) here. 

Here are some public spots perfect for that:

1. Dubai Marina Walk

2. The Walk, JBR
