The fountain display is certainly worth viewing, particularly if you are visiting Burj Khalifa or Dubai Mall as they are immediately outside. Lots of places to eat and drink nearby. Does get very crowded when fountain display is on. Worth seeing, but personally I think they are not a patch on the Bellagio fountains in Las Vegas.

The Dubai fountains are a must see. It's free, and so it does get crowded during the shows. they generally start at 6pm until 11pm and happen every half hour. The best way to view them is to book a table at one of the many restaurants that surround the fountains and enjoy in peace and comfort!

This is an amazing display. We found a spot early although there was plenty of room away from the mall entrance. The load explosion before the show was terrifying but the show itself was fabulous.

Saw short version outside, then saw long version while up Burj Khalifa. Both enjoyable. Well attended and popular to see.

The fountains were swaying to the rhythm/song of "Thriller" Michael Jackson. If your standing in the front you may get a little wet which is no big deal. You will appreciate the mist especially when its 100 degrees at 2200hrs.

A bit like the Bellagio but a bit more OTT! It's fun and very spectacular, sitting under the fabulous Burj Khalifa. The atmosphere is lovely; lots of families and friendly people who are nice to one another unlike many touristy spots, no one bothering you, just enjoying the dancing water.

Well worth checking the fountain show out. Situated just outside the Dubai Mall, easy to find and No cost to view a must see when in Dubai.

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighborhood 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.
