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.

A great show, good choice of song, added lights are adding to the excitement. Just too much rush in the area but still place can be found to watch the show and take few good pictures...

Lovely to see. Find a restaurant overlooking the fountains and Butj Kalimantan for dinner and enjoy the show as you eat. Time Out market has an outside terrace and is reasonably priced.

Many people already started to reserve the best viewing spots an hour before the show begun. It was a nice show but really short, about 3 minutes. It is worth to see when you are around but do not wait for it hours.

This fountain show at Dubai Mall is scheduled every 20 mins and its extremely well organized. The fountains reach great heights and with Burj Khalifa in the background it gives a perfect moment for your Instagram newsfeed. It is free and open for public viewing. A visit to Dubai is incomplete if you do not see this.

The Dubai Fountain is right at the Dubai Mall, though it faces the outside. It has shows every 30 minutes & they last for about 3 minutes (or so).

The fountain shows are so beautiful and organized, even when waiting in the warm weather in November. Next to that is also a Burj Khalifa light show with many different colors rotating. Overall, a place you must visit when in Dubai.
