Watch the dancing Dubai fountains

Only Dubai would combine a mesmerising fountain show with the finest shopping and the World’s tallest skyscraper… and we’re so glad that it did.

Designed by the masterminds behind The Bellagio’s dancing water show in Las Vegas, Dubai’s version is bigger and better than anything ever seen before making it the largest musical fountain in the World. We mean, would you expect anything less?

Located in Downtown Dubai, on the Burj Khalifa lake outside the Dubai Mall, the dancing fountains attract throngs of tourists armed with smartphones daily – and with good reason. The water shoots reach heights of up to 150 metres and are brought to life with the illumination of 6,000 powerful lights and 50 colour projectors.

Shooting up in trance-inducing harmony to a diverse mix of music from classical to contemporary pop, the fountains’ repertoire includes all the greats from Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson to Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman.

Performances are held daily and last for up to five-minutes. Do’t fret if you miss the two lunchtime performances, shown at 1pm and 1.30pm (1.30pm and 2pm on Fridays), because the evening shows are held every half hour from 6pm until 11pm.

The show can be seen from various locations in Downtown Dubai with the most popular spot on the Waterfront Promenade outside the Dubai Mall.

After just one viewing you’ll understand why this is the most popular free tourist attraction in the city. Plus, it’s highly addictive so we guarantee you’ll stick around to watch another show… and possibly another after that.

WINGED BOOTS WISDOM

No trip to Downtown Dubai is complete without a tour of Burj Khalifa, the World’s tallest skyscraper. 555m in the sky, you can enjoy exclusive access of the highest outdoor observatory in the World. Level 125 offers the best panoramic views of Dubai and is one tourist attraction that’s definitely not to be missed.
