If you want to experience the Dubai Fountains it is great to do this after dark and sitting in one of the many Restaurants that dot around the Burj Khalifa. Very nice visual experience.

This is one the most impressive element in Dubai. The only question is from where to see it and for how many times. I recommend to see it from the bridge or from a restaurant which has a view over it.

Beautiful show. A bit short though. Go well in advance so that you get good spots. Definately a must see.

The musical fountains look best after sunset. Make sure you get your spot at the Dubai Mall, either at the ground level near the railings or at first-floor deck. It is going to be crowded. Try to enjoy the show without taking pics first as...More

Words can’t really describe it as it was unbelievably stunning. It doesn’t happen every night, so I was told, and we saw about three shows with the fountains, I can only describe as dancing to the music. With the Burj Khalifa as it’s background it...More

There’s such a wide selection of restaurants and eateries along the promenade to choose from, so you can combine a good outdoor meal with a front row view of the fountains and lights show.

We came back downtown to see the fountains & Burj Khalifa at night & boy what a show! I think the shows take place every 15 to 20 mins with the last show at 11pm. The place is buzzing at night & the Dubai mall...More

Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa,
the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city

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

The Mango Tree restaurant seemed to have competitive prices, we tried to get a table but it was already fully booked so I would try and book ahead of time.

It’s free. There is a good view from the Apple store balcony. Get there before the crowds.

It isnot directly outside but you cannot get better than Tiptara inside The Palace Hotel Downtown. You are basically on the water in front of the fountains. They have won most romantic restaurant Dubai many times.
