“Well worth seeing”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

A great display to music every 30 mins until 11pm. The atmosphere around the vicinity of the fountains was great too, lots of people and a great vibe.

“Dubai Fountain from different perspectives”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

The dubai fountain is magnificent. The combination of water with music is great. Every show is different, personally we have saw a total of 7 shows during our trip. All are different.

We saw the dubai fountain from different perspectives
1) from top of the Burj khalifa - from here you will see the overview of the whole fountain display
2) from the fountain boat - from you we get close to the fountain during the display
3) from the ground level from different angles

but we missed the afternoon session and looking from a level 2/3 view of the fountain.

“Busy, crowded, but quite a nice display”
Reviewed November 14, 2013

We caught the fountain display on a weekday evening in November. We have been here several times before, and the music and display was slightly different than what we have previously experienced. The place is probably a little overrated - the Magic Fountain in Barcelona is comparable to this if not better.

The display takes place every half hour and on the hour and lasts for approx 4-5 minutes.

If you want a good view, I would suggest you get there a little earlier to take up a good position.
