Amazing spectacle...

Great choreographed work of water art...! I believe it's every half hour or so but it's so beautiful and artistic to behold. A real 'must see'!!!

If you are visiting dubai mall the foutains are must visit in the evening. The show starts right after the evening prayers and there is show every 15 mins. Superb fountain show you will see without paying anything.

The fountain shows are each about 5 minutes long and happen every half hour from 6pm, they're pretty spectacular and they're free! Hundreds of articulated fountains that are really well orchestrated to a varied selection of songs. It's very popular so turn up 15 minutes before each half hour to ensure a good vantage point. Well worth catching around sunset... More

Make the time to go to see this display - I think it goes off every 30 mins and should be seen at night, especially as the Burj Khalifa is a light show in it's own right inbetween displays and sits directly behind the fountains

Visit at night and if possible have dinner on one of the terraces at Souk al Bahar. Splendid shows! When the lights at the bottom of the fountain sparkle, the show is about to begin. A must.

The Dubai Fountains were excellent and well worth a visit - they start on the hour and every half an hour. The fountains operate to music.

We took the boat tour to view the fountains (first show @ 6pm) and would recommend this is a great way to see the show. Staff were lovely and stop to take some fantastic photos that you probably can't get viewing any where else.

It's a good show but nothing special. If you are in the area have a look but it's not something that I appreciated.

Wonderful way to end any visit to the Dubai Mall or just enhance a spectacular visit to the Burj Khalifa, totally awesome experience, we arrived at 5.30 ready for the show at 6, it was worth the wait, although it has changed as when I was last here there were several displays at once, if you're feeling a little flush...

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.
