We were looking for a place for coffee and came across the fountains. They were were O.K, may be better at night, so co-ordinate your visit for an evening show.

I walked to the bridge, found an empty spot and squatted low to capture two men standing; they were watching the fountains dance in front of the tallest building. I also chose to have dinner at a Lebanese Restaurant to enjoy the Dubai Fountains

It's a pretty stunning display. It's on every half an hour. Good idea to head out 10 minutes prior cos it gets pretty busy esp towards the evening. Having a restaurant with balcony overlooking the display is also a good idea.

We were able to catch two shows on a Sunday. 10 and 10:30 PM if I am not mistaken. The last show was Thriller by Michael Jackson and it was AMAZING!

Dubai Fountain is one of the only outdoor activity that is mesmerizing and musical at same time. It reminds me of Bellagio fountain in Las Vegas. However this one is much bigger and ample space to watch from three sides. i think that this fountain will uplift your spirits and renew a hope ...i am a regular visitor to this... More

Located between Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall, set to music and lights, this is a fantastic show lasting 5 minutes at a time. Definitely worth checking out if you are close by. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

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.
