A must see when in Dubai, these unique fountains offer magical experience. To avoid the crowds you can have a sit in the surrounding restaurants in Dubai Mall (on the upper floors) overlooking the fountains. Enjoy!

Fountains start around 6pm. Be sure to get there before as there's always a crowd outside waiting for the show to start
