“Impossible to get bored!”
Reviewed 3 June 2012

It is a huge fountain outside, close to a exit of the Dubai Mall and with a nice view to the illuminated Burj Khalifa. The show happens every 30 minutes, from 6pm to 11pm. You can enjoy the show and go back inside to the Dubai Mall and come back outside to see it another time (it is worth) - the music changes and the show also. Another option to see the show more than one time is having dinner in one of the restaurants around the fountain. A nice option for dinner with view to the fountain is the libanese 'Abd El Wahad', at the second floor of the gallerie over the little brigde that crosses the lake of the fountain. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get a place there, but there are other options. Its also a nice opportunity for people watching. You can see people from everywhere there, enjoying the show.

“Breathtaking Water Fountain Extravaganza!!”
Reviewed 3 June 2012

The Dubai Fountains is a must see amongst many of Dubai's man made wonders. Situated under the Burj Khalifa next to Dubai Mall, draws thousands of vistors daily. Don't worry if you don't get a front and center view, the fountain show takes place every half an hour to different tunes and themes so you situate your self better for the following show. The best spot to see the show is from the center and middle of the bridge that connects to the second part of the mall. We saw two shows and wished we had more time to stay and see more. I have been to Vegas and seen the fountains in front of the Bellagio hotel but the Dubai Fountains tops it as it is much grander and in a more beautiful setting.

There are not many things that you can do that are free! This is and it is really nice and a good way to end the day. It was good to see and I have been told that it is better if you do it later in the evening. We did it after a couple of hours shopping and saw the 6.30 show. There are plenty of restaurants so it would be nice to take a meal and watch the show.
