An amazing experience! We had dinner at a restaurant overlooking the fountains. They were fantastic, really well done and played to lovely music.

We arrived just as one show finished so had to wait 30 minutes squashed in a very large crowd. The display was good but when the music finished after about 5 minutes I was disappointed to find that was it over as I was waiting for the next piece of music to start

I had goosebumps and a tear or two. Definitely worth to visit. My suggestion is to go to a restaurant in Dubai Mall on 2,3,4th floor and eat a dinner while watching the show. The best view and it looks more spectacular when seen from above :)

It was a really enjoyable show. We saw it during sunset and it was great but I think in the night it might be even better with the lights more visible. We were a little disappointed by the shortness of it (4 mins). They could make it way longer without being boring because it's beautiful ! If you are here... More

The show is fantastic and plays every half hour until 11PM. I'd recommend arriving about 5-6 minutes early because it does get crowded.

Wonderful entertainment. The water and music are combined to give "goose-bumps!" I suggest splurging and going to my favourite Dubai restaurant Amal in the Armani Hotel. Sit outside and the combination is a life experience!

I have seen the fountains many times since they opened but they never fail to take my breath away. They are on at 1pm, 1.30pm and then every half hour from 6pm onwards. Each show is set to different music had the water choreography changes. It can get very busy around the fountains so be there 15 mins before the... More

If you are travelling to Dubai and don't go and see this attraction then you will have missed something special. It only lasts 3 to 5 minutes but be there at least 25 minutes before hand to get a good viewing point. The choreography of light, water and music is great entertainment. You won't be disappointed....
