I'd visited the Dubai fountains while wanting to see both Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa. The view in the afternoon was awesome with fountains synchronised with music and time to get good photographs, but the evening show was the must visit, with spectacular lighting, music and better fountains.

This is a must for everyone. I prefer it when it's dark and sit in one of the restaurants and have a drink and enjoy the breath taking display which changes frequently. I was in Dubai when Whitney Houston died and they did a brilliant and emotional tribute display. It lasts about 15 mins , plenty of fabulous restaurants to... More

It was not my first time at the Dubai Fountains but the magic is still the same as the first time you see it - it is simply mesmerizing ! The show is every 20 min and every time it is different choreography and music. I am a fan and will visit again during my next Dubai trip !

The first fountain show at around 7 pm is worth visiting and listening.. The show is at every half hour from 7 pm and the duration is 5-7 min. I was really amazed with the music and fountain show synch.. Really worth visiting..

so enjoyed getting dinner and talking with a friend while watching the spectacular dancing waters. Good balance between western music and local music. Be sure to sit through a few cycles to get the full scope

This is second to non. Must see, because it is the best. I can't describe how beautiful it is. Nice restaurants and cafes looking over the fountain it is something beyond imagination.

We were sitting in a restaurant nearby and each time when fountain started working, I simply had to turn my head that way and watch. It's amazing what can be done with water, while it interpretates the music. Specially astonished by performance to song of Andrea Bocelli and Celine Dion. Have a walk or dinner next to that fountain!

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.
