“Lovely. Wish it lasted longer!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

Really enjoyed this. Such a shame the display doesn't last that long. Try and get a spot to watch with the burj Kalifa in the background - what a backdrop! Or perhaps book a table for dinner and watch from a balcony.

“So much better than it sounds!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

When someone told us to go see some fountains we didn't think it would be that great... But definitely worth going - get a spot on the bridge or in a nearby restaurant at the Dubai Mall and be entertained :)

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

Fantastic!
Every traveller to Dubai should visit the fountains. These are probably the best fountains I have seen (I have seen a couple of musical fountains in Asia and Europe, but these were by far the best)

“Magical experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

This is really a must see show. The fountains come on every 30mins from 7:30pm and the jets are synchronised to music. They go very high, in many directions. We were lucky enough to be in a restaurant at heights facing the fountain, which made the experience even more wonderful. A must see.

“Brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

This was one of the first things i wanted to see when i landed in dubai and after watching it, i know
why people recommend the fountains highly. Spectacular display of waterworks makes you wonder how water can dance to the sweet music and that too sometimes upto 500 feet high. Try to get there early as it can get crowded pretty fast. The fountains play every half hour for 2 minutes so dont worry if you miss one, you can always catch the next. Also there are some nice restaurants overlooking the fountains, so alternatively you can grab a nice seat in any of them and enjoy from there.
Definitely a must visit and repeat views recommended.
