They are like an improved replica of the Bellaggio fountain in Las Vegas. Show is still phenomenal and impressive. I "must" if you visit Dubai

The fountains is a must watch show. The show will last for 3 mins, every night and there will be half hour gap in between before the next show. Every fountain shows are different. Totally awesome and romantic as well to walk around the area :)

The Dubai Fountains overlook the Burj Khalifa. They run every 20-30 minutes. You can either walk on the promenade for different views, or enjoy a nice dinner at Wafi Gourmet inside the Dubai Mall. Request a table with a view in advance.

Dubai Fountain is located in Dubai Mall and can be accessed throug the mall, what makes it even mesmerizing that the fountains backdrop is the majestic Burj Khalifa buidling. Put this two together and only one word comes out "Wow". This is must to see and experience the Burj Khalifa and the Dubai Fountains with the light and music show.... More

Quite impressive; lights and music show... must see when you're in Dubai. Off course it is super crowded, but you need to see it once at least.

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
