Top ways to experience The Dubai Fountain
The area
Neighbourhood: 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.

Amazing experience.
Sep 2021 • Family
An experience worthy for everyone. The dancing waters or fountain like many refer to it, gives you a great visual and sensory experience. It's so captivating and thrilling for all age groups. A must visit for anyone when in Dubai.

So beautiful
Sep 2021
Covid protocols in place so only so many people can get close to the fountains. We were lucky enough to be in the right spot at the right time to be able to enjoy this view. It was spectacular and truly beautiful. Wish they operated more show times.

Amazing evening at the Dubai Fountain, Downtown
Sep 2021
Definitely worth going on the evening. Plays every 1/2 hour to different music and light show. Had cocktails at Neo's, 63rd floor and watched the show from their windows before venturing down stairs to wander round and see and feel it first hand. Would recommend.

Awesome fountain show
Oct 2021 • Couples
This is a great free experience in Dubai outside Dubai Mall and under the Burj Khalifa.

The show runs every 30 minutes after dark to a range of different songs.

The fountains fly high and are an amazing spectacle. There are plenty of viewing points around the water, or paid options of a floating platform or abra ride, for a close up experience.

A must do in Dubai.

Must be experienced if you have a good time
Oct 2021
Long queues and guards who do not know what to do and have coordinated with others in the area. So general chaos as many other places in Dubai where staff are involved. But it is also an experience in itself. The fountain is nice and harmonized with the music but is quickly over. Spent over half an hour standing in line and moving back and forth depending on which guard came by and the show itself lasted for 3 minutes.

The view is really nice and you can the Burj along with all the “EMAAR” buildings. But the fountain show is really boring with generic music playing
