We visited here a few times during the day, but the best time to visit is definitely after dark. The area is busy, with a great atmosphere and the changing colours on the fountain are stunning.

The music and lights are an evening event due to them being more effective once the sun sets. The fountains run day and night but they only have the above (lights etc) from 9pm.
