The Dubai Fountain, Dubai Overview

Dubai Fountain is the world's largest choreographed water fountain located in the beautiful Burj Complex. This dancing fountain surges as high as 150 meters in complete synchronisation to classical, Arabic and other popular world musical numbers. Forming beautiful arcs and jumping to the beats, this fountain was designed by California-based WET, the creators of the Fountains of Bellagio in Las Vegas. The show begins in the evening every day, and the best way to approach it is through the Dubai Mall.

Nestled in the middle of the 24-acre Burj Lake, this Dubai Fountain set against the shimmering Burj Khalifa holds performances of around 5 minutes each. Visible from several vantage points, one can also take a closer look at the fountain by booking a wooden abra (a traditional Arabian boat) cruise that sails everyday between 17:45 and 23:00. About 1.5 million lumens of mesmerising projected light from the show is what attracts visitors here.
