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.

You should not miss this Fountain show with different melodies and water designed shows. They are usually done in the evenings (I am not sure, but I think they start every hour and they last for around 10 minutes each). You should be in exact hours, to see the show from the beginning till the end. The only thing that... More

The first time you see these it makes you sit/stand there open-mouthed. Then it does it again, and again. Just mesmerising, and when you aren't watching these, you can watch the light-show on the exterior of the Burj Khalifa, or you can eat some food :) We watched the fountains from a restaurant, from the side of the lake, and...

Its an experience that, everyone loves, the best part is you can see its as many times as you want as the show is displayed every half an hour. The music is great and the fountains spectacular.

A saw it from the dubai mall exit with a lot of crowd but i loved the music and the show. A suggestion is book a dinner table right by the fountain as there are many restaurants and you can watch the show atleast 3 times as it lasts for about 5 minutes and happens every 30 minutes. suggestion again...

Watching these from the top (Burj Khalifa) was a jaw-dropping experience, especially at night. It is a must watch.

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.
