It's a good experience, the show was really good but it's very crowded so if you want to see the fountain show you have to be there about 30 minutes before the show

Iconic landmark in Downtown Dubai. It is centrally located between Burj Khalifa, The Dubai Mall and Souk Al Bahar. It's free to watch the Dubai Fountain. Some restaurants have outside sitting where you can dine and watch the Fountain at the same time.

This fountain is one of the best water fountains I have ever experienced. It's just outside of the Dubai Mall and runs daily until the evening. The Burj Khalifa lights up with lights at night for the water show and is a beautiful sight for all members of the family to experience.

Great meeting spot to start or end your day of sightseeing. The best place to see the show the first time is down at the ground level. Perhaps on one of the surrounding pedestrian bridges crossing the fountain pond you'll find the best view. For a more interesting perspective, time your visit to At The Top (Burj Khalifa tour) so that you'll be able to watch the show from 140+ stories up in the air!

Great displays. Better seen at night. It really they are spectacular at any time. I have always found them better when the music is more upbeat. Get there 10/15 mins early to get a good spot!

Near the Dubai Mall, we expected the dancing fountains to be as over the top as the rest of the area. Actually, we were slightly underwhelmed. Similar to the dancing fountains at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, accompanied by recorded music. We waited a long time in order to get a good view for the 6PM show. But, the show was very brief. Your best bet is to buy dinner or a drink at one of the outdoor cafes overlooking the fountains.

Described as the biggest musical fountain in the world, this is definitely a must-see in Dubai. Set against the dramatic Burj Khalifa. Situated outside the Dubai Mall, the show starts every 30 minutes after 6pm.

The Dubai Fountain in Burj Khalifa Lake has become something an icon for the city. It was designed by the same minds behind the fountain show at the Bellagio in Las Vegas and has the incredible backdrop of the mammoth Burj Khalifa. The show runs every hour, is free to watch and is best enjoyed at dusk and evening as the lights of the fountain and city beyond create a spectacular show.

You can never get enough of this place and no matter how many times you see the dancing fountain, you always want to see it once more. Set to play once every 20 mins, this place is always crowded so get there early to secure the best view. The views are best from the restaurants in souk al bahar.

These fountains were amazing and even bigger than the Bellagio fountains although the same concept. This was my favorite thing we saw while in Dubai. I highly recommend going at night so you can see all the lights with the fountains. They light up the Burj Khalifa and make it sparkle to the music. There are some spots along the way where you can have dinner and watch the show right outside the mall.

Located just outside the huge Dubai Mall, beside the Burj Khalifa, you get to view the world's largest dancing fountain which runs every 30 minutes, best enjoyed at night when it's more cooling and lights are more beautifully lit.

The Dubai Fountain is right next to the Dubai Mall and the Burj-al-Khalif. And it's one of the most amazing and spectacular waterfalls in the world! It's a must see while in Dubai, UAE.

The worlds tallest building, next to the worlds biggest shopping mall and then you have the worlds highest dancing fountains! They are fab though, the music is great and they are on every half hour so if you miss them, grab a drink and get a good position for the next showing! We have booked the tour through Country Travel Mart and there was plenty of allowance for spending extra time on all attractions.
