Choreographed to music, the Dubai Fountain shoots water as high as 500 feet –that’s as high as a 50-story building. Designed by creators of the Fountains of Bellagio in Vegas, Dubai Fountain Performances occur daily on the 30-acre Burj Khalifa Lake.

It's majestic and awesome. Caution! U Should wait 30MINUTES after every 5minutes song. So u need at least 2hours to enjoy fully. And it was so crowdy, so you should take nice viewpoint(such as TGI friday)

The dancing fountains is something that every visitor to the mall must see. Every 30min they play a different music and the fountain dances to the tune. Fantastic show for the whole family.

Located between Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa. The Fountains are nice to watch and the music is nice to listen. The show is free and is repeated every 30 minutes starting 6 pm.

Certainly worth a few minutes of your time in between shopping. The dancing fountain over in Singapore has a story line though and lasts longer. Just be on site a few minutes before " show time" to get a nice vantage point as the crowd waiting for the dancing fountain could be several people thick.

This is a must see when visiting Dubai. Located at the Dubai Mall at the Burj Khalifa, the spectacular dancing fountain shoots water at least 100 feet into the air.

Absolutely loved this. Beautiful balmy evening, beautiful music to the water fountains as the sun set. Got goose bumps it was so beautiful. Don't miss it.

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.
