Owner description: 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.

I was expecting something very very special and was not impressed at first during the day. Then when visiting the Burj Khalifa we had the opportunity to see the fountains from the top. The view was so different and enjoyable. We also had the opportunity to view the fountains at night with the light show and then it was beautiful to see. I recommend to see the fountains at might rather than during the day for the magic of the show.

We arrived to find scaffolding and workers everywhere and thought that the fountain would not work, but the friendly man at the information desk in the Dubai mall said that we have 20 minutes to wait (it was 20 to 1 in the afternoon) and we did. What an awesome experience! the music and the water was so beautiful, I longed for it to just keep on and never stop. I think it would be even more beautiful at night, but we had to get back to the airport. Truly worth seeing.

On all my previous visits, I would rate the Dubai Fountains as one of the must do's in Dubai. And considering that it is free, all the better.

Unfortunately, this time (my family's first time in Dubai) the fountains were a little disappointing because of the construction work that is going on around the fountains. While I fully understand that progress must happen, it did unfortunately detract from the music that goes along with the fountains. Classic music with the rat a tat tat of jackhammers and all in the background was not what I had hoped my family's first experience of the fountains would be!

That aside, still one of the places to visit when in Dubai.

A must see attraction for visitors & families. surprisingly its free for all. Lasts only for few minutes but worth the wait each hour. The evening shows are crowded. Afternoon shows are empty but you will miss the colorful lightings. A world wonder you dont want to miss while in Dubai
