We watched the fountains from the balcony of a fabulous restaurant called Bice Mare at Souk al Bahar. The fountains play every half an hour and each show is different - what a great surprise! Loved it

Stumbled upon this attraction at Dubai mall and caught the end of the 9pm show. We waited about for the next one at 10pm and wasn't disappointed. Very over the top, very Dubai but no less spectacular.

This should be no 1 on everyone's list to do in Dubai. Its so majestic, and strangely quite emotional, made me cry Lol!! Try to get as high as you can to experience the full effect.

Dubai Fountains are just outside Dubai Mall. Catch a metro here to save time & costs if possible as Sheikh Zayed Road can be very busy. The fountain is a free 4 minutes music, light & splashing water show which comes on every 30 minutes during the evening until about 2230 or 2300. Sit at one of the bars or... More

We went here to see the fountain show only to find there are no shows during the day. We was not fortunate to come back later on in the day.

I saw nothing special in this singing fountains. Very standard and very rare music change. So every day you arrive and during few minutes just see the same show over and over again.

I would highly recommend this visit to the water show. Its mystical and stunning all rolled into one. Different music and displays each time and to have the amazing structure of Burj Kalifeh in the background is wonderful. I would recommend one viewing from the bridge then another from the waterfront.

I love the fountains and the kids also! It was a bit overcrowded but it was worth the adventure. Also the food and the shopping opportunities are what I love

Great views, makes for a perfect evening with the water rising few meter, swirling and dancing to music and cganging shades of laser beams!! The music changes from show to show ranging from classical opera to arabic songs to MJ beat it! The show is every half an hour, lasts 5 - 10 mins, and its free. It is at... More
