The area
Neighbourhood: 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.

The way the water moves, its just beautiful. After dinner, a nice thing to watch. Would prefer arabic music instead of English.

I had heard so much about the dancing fountains from friends in Dubai that I had to see them for myself. I saw them in daylight initially and wondered what all the fuss was about as they last barely five minutes.
However, go when it is dark and take the boat ride on the lake to see them. It makes a world of difference to the experience seeing it from the water with the Burj Khalifa lit up in the background.

Try the boat ride that takes you in the middle of the fountain. The show starts every 30 minutes and is excellent in mild weather say October to April.

Shop at Dubai Mall & end the day with the Dubai Fountains. Worth one view at least! Gets crowded though, so if you want a spot in the front, come early.
