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.

Nice to visit during a stay at the Dubai Mall. The show lasts only 5-10min, but every 30 minutes. So you can combine your shopping experience at the Mall with 2-3 visits of the fountain show.

An amazing free attraction is the Dubai Fountains! In the same day we visited Dubai Mall, Burj Khalifa and the fountains. Very crowded but worth to wait. Every 30 min a beautiful 5 minutes spectacle of water and lights!

It is a classic attraction of the city and very beautiful indeed. But it is difficult to see with so many people. Very crowed!

This is a not-to-be-missed attraction. The music plays every 30 minutes and there are many restaurants with overlooking balconies. Everything from classical to Michael Jackson is played as the water dances majestically.

A place that makes my day always. I would highly recommend to have a dinner at one of the restaurants with the fountain view and fully enjoy the entire experience.

Tremendous show that makes you feel in another world as the night falls and the fountains start to dance. You can start by recording them from the 124th floor of Burj Kalifah and you can continue on the sounds of another song from next to...More

The vast fountain is in the city center of Dubai, right next to Burj Khalifa. The first show starts at 7:30 PM, a good time for you to relax and take some heat off in the summer. There's a lot of video on youtube for...More

Dubai's fountains are indeed a sight to behold in the backdrop of the night sky! With its twists and turns, the water dances amidst the light. Beware the crowds though.

This show is a must-watch when in Dubai. We were wowed by the music choices and the coordination of the dancing waters to the music. There was a Chinese song that they played that is so beautiful. I later googled and found that the song...More

but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide

There are two afternoon shows (1pm and 1:30pm except Friday, 1:30pm and 2pm) and the evening shows start at 6pm and runs every 30mins until 11pm. Each show only lasts for 5-7 minutes so try and see 2 different ones as they... More

Having been to Dubai a few times I've never done the boat ride at the fountains and quite fancy this to see them from a different perspective. However my husband is concerned that even if we book online before we go there will be a long wait for the boat ride once we're there. Does anyone have experience of the boat ride and the queueing times, even if time slot booked in advance? Thanks
