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.

This is also one of the things you have to see if you visit Dubai. The watershow is a couple of times a day (dont know how many). Beautiful music playing along. You won't find a fountain like this anywhere else

Excellent show and doesn't cost a penny, the kids loved it. Just outside of the mall (five guys exit) and 2 minutes away from the Burj Khalifa, so perfect if you wanna do the Mall, Fountain show and The Burj in one hit as we...More

The show is a bit short around 3 minutes. But it's really nice to see it but be aware it will be crowded:)

..the show was really short. I watched from inside of a restaurant and I could not imagine waiting 10-15 minutes outside for such a short show.

You may wait for a maximum of 20 to 30 minutes in the evening so that the next show would start. Wow, it is a wonderful show of fountain dancing with elegant music! Watching the live fountain show makes an extreme feeling of enjoyment! Try...More

We visited the fountains during the day then booked an evening boat trip to view them at dusk. The boat trip was reasonably priced and gave us a much better close up view. Our children (aged 14 and 7) really enjoyed the experience.

Better go to Dubai Fountain at night during summertime. Because it is too hot during summertime in Dubai. Each hour has 2 performance

Even being a resident in Dubai, this fountain always an inspiring thing to see. The songs played by the fountain are always new and multi-cultural. The fountain starts at 6pm

Nice free activity to do, you can view from a height in the Apple shop or at ihop while eating, can get busy so get there with enough time if you want a prime location.

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

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
