This was the most amazing experience I've ever had. The fountains are great work synchronised music and lights. You can have a boat ride in the lake and while I was in the boat with my son, the fountains came on which was brilliant. Don't miss this!!

Been twice to see the fountains and the second time was even greater than the first and the next time will be greater! Masterful engineering and splendid creativity, a real spectacular show that can be watched over and over again to different themes. With a mixture of classical and local themes the water really does seduce you in its dance.... More

When I went, I waited for the show to begin for like 15 minutes. Finally, it began. It was an impressive water show, but lasted around 2 minutes. The wait was worth it in some ways, and a waste of time in others.

Geat evening, wonderful sync, lovely music and lights. Its a blend of these all factors which makes this show a memorable one. They play songs in different languages , every 30 minutes. Show is not played i think on rainy days, as i missed it the day it rained heavily in Dubai.

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.
