Whilst visiting Dubai these are a "must not miss "thing to do . Every 30 mins the fountains burst into life to a different tune . So even if you catch the end of one the next one will be different . Our highlight was thriller by jacko. Brilliant .

Dubai fountains show is really amazing, you must-visit when you are in Dubai. Head to Iconic Dubai Mall and under the stunning Burj Khalifa, the show stars from 1pm onwards, every 30 minutes with a western song for o'clock and Arabic song for '30. Enjoy! Day or night, it's a great show!

You can see this spectacular light and water show from a heigt 555 m on Burj Khalifa and then once more down right at the fountain. Best combination is visiting Burj Khalifa and on the top observe sunset and then go to the Dubai fountaine down.

Although I have lived in Dubai for over 6 years, the Dubai Fountains are one of the places that I do not mind going back to with tourist friends. It always causes a jaw to drop or a smile to break, no matter how long you have spent trapped inside Dubai Mall or Souk Al Bahar. Excellent.

The fountains every half hour after dusk are stunning. Beautifully illuminated they reach amazing heights and sway in time with the music. Many restaurants overlook the spectacle so you can sit and dine whilst watching.

it is beautiful and definitely one of a must see event in Dubai. Just wait next show when you arrive so you can see it in front line when current one is finished.

Recommend to everybody who want to have a great meal and watch perfect performance. Foto, that I attach is the Italian restaurant at the Dubai Mall -Carlucio. The best view, the best pizza I ever had (I didn't take into account Italy itself). So again I recommend to everybody. The performance started at 6 pm and lasts 5-7 minutes, but... More

We waited for over an hour, along with lots of other tourists, but nothing happened. Eventually we asked a girl working in a near-by cafe who told us they don't work on a Friday. Very disappointing, and no signage to indicate this.

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.
