Choreographed to music, the Dubai Fountain shoots water as high as 500 feet –that’s as high as a 50-story building. Designed by creators of the Fountains of Bellagio in Vegas, Dubai Fountain Performances occur daily on the 30-acre Burj Khalifa Lake.

The 30 minute boat ride on the lake at Dubai Mall meant you were up close to the fountain show without having to stand or get pushed by the crowds (it gets very crowded out there) it cost 138 dirhams about £30 for 2. If you have money to spare and don't wish to stand it's worth paying I guess... More

if you are Dubai Mall or going to the top of Burj Khalifa, then you may wait for the dubai fountains. You may watch it from top of Burj Khalifa or from the ground level. The show is good, but I liked the colored water fountain show in Sharjah to be much better and beautiful. If you have time then... More

Dubai fountain is located at The Dubai Mall. It starts at 6pm daily and they have 5 minutes show after every half an hour. The view is amazing if you're viewing it from Burz Khalifa.

Short but amazing display. Finding a good spot is helpful. As the music is different for different shows in a day, watch more than one

We had planned to see the fountains, especially as we missed out last time we visited. We got dinner and sat outside in Five Guys so we could get a good view. As the show time got closer, as expected it got very busy with people standing right in front of where we were sat to watch. I'd recommend getting... More

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
