What to see
Dubai Fountain
Burj Park

Holding the record for the ‘World’s tallest Performing Fountain’, the Dubai Fountain show should be a staple in any visitor’s itinerary. Designed by California-based company WET Design and mirroring the fountains at Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas, the fountains are set upon the harmonious waters of Burj Khalifa lake amid Downtown Dubai with the Burj Khalifa itself towering in the background to the fantastic water display. It shoots water up to 500 ft and is 900 ft in length, using over 22,000 gallons of water across a spectrum of over 1,000 different water performances. The visual spectacle alone is an absolute sight to see. It is illuminated by 6,600 lights, 50 colour projectors upon the Burj Khalifa, and has performed alongside some iconic music including Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You”, Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”, and “All Night Long” by Lionel Ritchie. Although keep in mind that the music is constantly changing so expect the unexpected, as it can also range from classical, Indian, and Arabic melodies.

As the crowds gathers quickly, be sure to get a spot with an optimal view. Which includes the Dubai Fountain Boardwalk, a 272-metre floating platform within the fountain itself or dine and be entertained at some of the many restaurants at the base of the Burj Khalifa and alongside the exterior of the Dubai Mall including Madeleine Café & Boulangerie, Tolosa Bodega at the chic Souk al Bahar, or the terrace of Karma Kafe.

Also, if you’re in the mood to make your visit to the Dubai Fountain even more memorable choose to set sail upon a traditional abra ride. The Dubai Fountain Lake Ride priced at Dhs 65 per person, not only provides an authentic experience aboard the comfortable wooden boat but will also give you front row seats of the world’s greatest water show performance.

To catch the iconic spectacle, the shows run daily. In the afternoons from 1-1:30pm excluding Fridays when it runs from 1:30-2pm, and in the evenings from 6-11pm every 30 minutes, for about 5-10 minutes.
