This is a must see in Dubai. Was willing to waiting every half hour to see more displays. Done very well. Ps: every quarter part the hour the Burj Khalifa lights up as well.

Its the Bellagio fountain on steroids. Very good show, it alternates between western and traditional songs. There are shows at 1 and 1:30pm, and than half hourly from 6. They're best when it get darks, and you can get a slightly higher view point form...More

Quite an Ordinary experience, and was a bit let down. Though it is cost-free, expected it to be a bit more sophisticated.

but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide

It's free if you want to stand in the crowd. If you prefer some privacy or to sit down while watching, you can buy tickets for 20dhs for the recently built Boardwalk opposite Dubai Mall. Or take a boat ride on the lake... 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
