We watched the show from ground level and then went up to the 3rd floor of the Dubai Mall and watched from a restaurant balcony. Perfect location! The show's only drawback--one song every half hour, so plan to sit and sip or nibble while you wait!

A must see in Dubai, by day and at night as it's a very different experience. Get a table at one of the many cafes outside of the Dubai Mall to get a great view.

Very Good Fountain show just in front of the Burj Khalifa (Tallest tower in the world) and the Dubai Mall( Biggest mall in Dubai with large Sea aquarium) The show is nice to watch and is done every 30 mins. Comparable to the fountains of the Bellagio in Las Vegas. Best view would be while dining at the soul al... More

On the day our tour group had visited the Burg Khalifah, we had the lunch at Red Lobster. This restaurant was not far from the Dubai Fountains. Luckily, while our group enjoyed the lunch, we all heard of the beautiful music 'Buttlefly Lover' with the dancing fountains. The water was up and down along the melody. It looked like the... More

Located outside Dubai Mall, it was an excellent water performance set at periodic intervals. You can go shopping or strolling inside the mall but you must take note of the show timings as it will really get crowded more than you expect. Perfect harmony of Lights, Sounds and Water. Different songs were played each time, they had a collection of... More

The afternoon show was short and not overly impressive. Must be better at night? We were able to sit near Tim Horton's and get a good view.

Only lasted about 3 minutes. Might be better in evening. They only go twice during the daytime. Very high but so quick!

Fantastic experience and well worth a visit, we have taken the children along a few times. For the best effect go at night time. A word of caution, I see there is a 'Book Now' option on Tripadvisor, forget this as the show is free. You can access the Mall for free and watch from the side of the lake.... More

Truly spectacular fountain display, especially over dinner and with the right music accompanying the fountains, you will not forget your dining experience under the Burj Khalifa!
