Visit at night

The fountain shows are very pretty at night and quite enjoyable. Worth the trip to the Dubai Mall to see the show.

This was the best fountain to music show I have seen. Sound quality was really good and the animation of the fountains matched the music perfectly. You can view for free every day in the evenings.

Every half hour there is a flood-lit fountain show. The music varies each time and the water jets are simply amazing. A must see whilst in Dubai.

A worthwhile experience to put in ones places to see. The show started at 13.00 and its a good idea to get there 15 min before to find your space before the crowds. The fountains are synchronised to music which is not difficult to hear and with the Burj providing a background. I do believe the evening display also has... More

You have to see this show. It is beautiful and you could watch it every day. Fountains move according to music and it is breathtaking. Music is arabic and it fits perfectly in the enviroment. You can also walk around fountains and it is also very beautiful.

I was expecting something quite spectacular but was slightly disappointed. I am on the short side so found it difficult to see without being up high.

it is very nice and happy place to visit and see. if you miss it there is a show every half an hour. the music is very nice and the show is must see but I did not like the crowd pushing each other. it will be nice if it has more organizations to limit the crowd pushing each other.

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.
