Well worth getting to the fountain area 20 minutes early and a central viewing position is best - there is a small bridge - front and centre on that is perfect. The show starts every half hour and runs for only 4 minutes - but well worth a visit - Plus you sav emoney by not being in the Mall... More

I was amazed how good these fountains were, so glad I made the trip to the mall and then stumbled upon them. So atmospheric. And for free too!!

Dubai fountain is beautiful place to see Dubai. But it's not single in world. Las Vegas musical fountain also very good. If you are in Dubai, please must spend time there.

Ask your guide or concierge what restaurants to book to get a good seat for fountains. They go off every 30 minutes, but very crowded.. A great show

We love the Dubai fountains. They are definitely a must do in Dubai. The music and water shows are outstanding. Definitely don't fight the crowds, but rather book an evening meal in one of the restaurants with a view and watch them while relaxing with your meal.

We waited for the fountain show and it only lasted 3 minutes. Very disappointing. The Bellagio one in Las Vegas is more entertaining.

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.
