Super fountain. World class. Seen it 5 times during my stay and never got bored of it. Amazing. Best ive ever seen

Hundreds of fountains blasting water hundreds of feet in to the air. This really is something to behold and better than those we saw at the Bellagio. There are several restaurants with balconies overlooking the event too - all of which I'd recommend.

Nice show with water, lights and music. Not super interesting but one of the few things to do in Dubai. There is no much culture or things to do in this city apart from shopping and having lunch in restaurants.

I have seen many fountain dance, but this one is totally different and extra ordinary experience. The best thing is every show is on different music with different dance.

Been to see the fountains several times and will always hang around when passing to see the show. Tip. Go into the Mall and up to the Apple store. They have a balcony with a great view.

If you like body contact with strangers, different body odours and reviewing all smart phone models of the world being raised into the air, find yourself outside Dubai Mall for one of the indeed spectacular fountain shows, happening every 30 minutes. The show seems to...More

It isnot directly outside but you cannot get better than Tiptara inside The Palace Hotel Downtown. You are basically on the water in front of the fountains. They have won most romantic restaurant Dubai many times.

You'll enjoy it both ways, but if you want a closer look to take picture or have kids you'll prefer to stand & watch the fountains closely :) you can get a great view in just a few minutes
