Dubai has soooooo much to offer - however I do strongly recommend that a visit to the fountain show is a must on your 'To-Do' list. It has something truly magical watching water dance to light and music.

fantastic concept, for those wishing to visit, the fountain begins every half and hour, thus those wishing to visit please be aware of the timing as last show is at 11pm

loved the display, shame it takes so long to watch again. Tip, go to TGI fridays for best view at night for the fountains

I'm sure the fountain show was good, but my family was unable to see anything. People were crowded up to the front with kids on their shoulders. My advice is to plan ahead and figure out where to stand so that you can see the show and arrive early as the good spots fill up quickly.

The fountain was well choreographed. Though it was for only few minutes but it was worth the wait for it. A must see for first time visitors to Dubai.

Doesn't matter how many times i have see the show ..themed with different music each show…I think its amazing… particularly like to see the one done to Nessum Dorma with Pavarroti… Show is every half hour from 6-11pm I think …and can be seen anywhere from round the lake at the Dubai Mall …or the restaurants on the Downtown Shops...

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.
