The area
Neighbourhood: 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.

I had high expectations of the Dubai Fountain as I've heard so much about it, and it's a pretty nice show to watch especially with the music that goes along with it. Unfortunately it's really touristy so it gets really crowded at all times. i would still recommend seeing it at least once as it remains a very nice show and spectacle

The fountain is a surreal experience. It’s just magical. It was my Dubai highlight this far. The music, the show, the lights….. just amazing. I recommend everyone to definitely watch the show.

An amazing experience, it was next to an amazing mall, and food courts, with entertainment. After that we got to explore the rest of the nightlife.

Went during Ramadan so only on in the evening. Initially very busy at the first showing 19.30, if you want a better view and to see different productions and light shows on The Burj, hang around as people vanish after first couple of shows. Also a good idea to move vantage points as they look slightly different from different angles. The light shows on The Burj this year were amazing.
