Get there early. The crowds are very busy at sunset when the fountains begin. Book a restaurant for a great view. It is difficult to see from Dubai Mall as very crowded around the entrance. Take a boat trip and realy get a great view. Highly recommended

The first thing all tourists must visit. The show is on every 30 minute every single evening and the dancing fountain is a treat to watch every single time. Great outing with family and children.

We were a party of 16 travelling to Dubai for a 5 night stay, at the Atlantis. Ages ranged from 3 years old to 69 years young. It was booked through Virgin Holidays.

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.
