Choreographed to music, the Dubai Fountain shoots water as high as 500 feet –that’s as high as a 50-story building. Designed by creators of the Fountains of Bellagio in Vegas, Dubai Fountain Performances occur daily on the 30-acre Burj Khalifa Lake.

Beautiful to watch and quite amazing what you can do with just water - and a few million dollars! They are from the same company as Bellagio fountains in Las Vegas I believe. The originals are still the best!

Out the back of the Dubai Mall on the man-made lake is the Dubai Fountain. There is a show in the afternoon (around 1pm - but check times as they change), the in the evening there are shows every half an hour. They display is choreographed to music and lights and last about 2 minutes. It is a must see.... More

Every time I have visiting friends or my family in Dubai, I never fail to bring them in Dubai Mall plus the Dubai Fountains. I take pride and honor, though, I am just one if the countless expats here in uae, to show Dubai Fountains. I have visited and seen the Fountains in Las Vegas in USA but I detest... More

The fountains are a must see if you are going to Dubai. They are just fantastic! We were lucky enough to see them from the Burj Khalifa viewing platform and we watched them throughout our evening meal too! Must see!

They come on every hour from 1830 and it's an intricate dance of water jets and lights. It does get very crowded so either get there quite well in advance, settle for a view with lots of people with phones blocking it, or the best option is to book a table at one of the restaurants that have a balcony...

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.
