Beautiful!

Spectacular by evening and night. Must see since set to beautiful music. Very crowded! Get close by hanging around or eating at many restaurants around to get away from crowds.

OK people face it, nothing really majestic to this show. Just music, water blasts and a zillion people watching. Nothing special.

This is a great attraction if you are in the area where every 30 minutes the fountains dance to a music track with lights it's great entertainment and the variations in the music each time can be an entertaining evening whilst sitting in a lake side restaurant[especially those in the Amarni hotel

The Dubai Fountain is simply awesome. The water show is superbly synchronised with the music that one could dance along with the tunes.

to my new favourite modern building. The back drop of the Burj Khalifa makes for an impressive display. Dine and watch for an enjoyable evening out.

Must see attraction once you visit Dubai. Spending a day in Dubai mall, burj khalifa and the fountains is on the top things to do in Dubai. Every half hour the show starts with variations on the music. The LED show on the burj is a great addition during the evening hours

This is definitely worth seeing on a visit to the Dubai mall. Runs every half an hour. Get a spot early as people are quite pushy and I was knocked out the way

A few pointers: • Shows every 1/2 hour on the hour • Go at night for the combined light show on the Burj Khalifa & the fountain lights If you have been to the Bellagio in Vegas & enjoyed the fountains there, you will love this. It seems way bigger, although that is just my visual impression ... not an... More

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.
