Crazy Founta ins

If you are in Dubai, this is a must see. Situated Right next to Burj Khalifa, the fountains are in the full glory at night. The show is held for around 4 minutes at every half hour interval.Even if you have seen it once, you want to see it again and again and again. Very scenic and beautiful. Please keep you Cameras ready and take a seat right at the edge to get the best view.

The Magic of Water and Lights - Amazing

The beauty and magic of water mixed with music and lights which makes this attraction distinct. The way beats are designed and the fountain just lights up to that is something amazing. For a while when the music is going on you feel like you are in different world altogether. From the time it start to the time it ends feels like keep on watching it. Must visit for everyone. Moreover see it and enjoy it. Ensure that you take your video and still camera.

One of Kind

This is a fountain show that takes place every half an hour from evening at Dubai Mall. They play awesome music on which the fountain dances. Along side you can see the Tallest building of the world Burj Khalifa, it just adds beauty to the place.The fountain generally remains crowded and without a strategic location you won't enjoy it. Try and get an elevated location from where you can enjoy the view. It is free of cost so it remains crowded, make sure you take your place accordingly.

A magical place

After the visit to Burj Khalifa, we explored Dubai Mall and finally reached to the open space outside the mall where the musical fountain show takes place every evening. There were hundreds of people waiting for the show around the 24 acre manmade lake. It was like a big fair, we were spellbound when the music filled the air and the coloured fountains danced on the tunes like trained dancers. I don't have words to explain the magic, it lasted only 5 minutes. We were informed that the show is repeated every half an hour for 5 minutes with different songs so we waited for another half an hour and enjoyed it again. From there the sight of Burj Khalifa with its lighting is one to die for.

Nice Fountain but not colourful

The Dubai Fountain is the world's largest choreographed fountain system set on the 30-acre man made Burj Khalifa Lake in Dubai Mall. This is just in and outside DUBAI MALL. You can club visit of Burj Khalifa, Dubai Mall and Dubai fountains. However this fountain was not running continuously but periodically so meanwhile it was over crowded. The fountains would have been better if were colourful. You can spare 15 minutes for visit when you are in Dubai Mall.

Pleasantly beautiful

It starts at 6pm every evening and the shows are every 30 mins. The fountain show lasts for 10 mins. Its right next to Burj Khalifa and during the Dubai shopping festival everything around is well lit which makes it a beautiful sight.

Good but a bit disappointing

We were a bit disappointed with the fountain show as it lasted only 5 min, after waiting for half an hour for it to start, and get a place with a view. Though the show itself was stunning, but too short. Still it remains one of the main attraction in Dubai along with Burj Khalifa.

Wonderful Fountains

This is the best thing you will ever see in Dubai as this place has the best music for all countries. When the water and Fountains move to the tunes of the music it's a treat of all.

Great attraction for tourists

This is a very big fountain exclusively designed to set on rhythm of various songs. It really gives a great feeling to tourists as everyone looks at with a lot of anxiety.

Enchantingly Musical

Half an hour fun filled water dance. Music is so beautiful and enchanting that as the water and lights dance to its theme you can not help but just stand still and enjoy the show. One of the best man made water magic. It's right in front of Burj Khalifa. And has a Malls and restaurants from where you can sit and view this marvel.
