Dubai Fountains, Dubai

Enjoy the show at Dubai Fountains, located on a 12 hectare (30 acre) manmade lake beneath the city's megatall skyscraper. The elaborate set of choreographed water features was the largest of its kind upon completion in 2009. The fountains shoot water up to 152.4 m (500 ft) into the air, in time to a varied playlist of songs from around the world. A total of 6,600 lights and 25 colored projectors illuminate the waters, creating quite a spectacle around midday and regularly in the evenings. Dubai Fountains is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Dubai Edition.

  • Every 30 minutes beautiful shows set to music. You can dine outdoors in many restaurants surrounding the Mall (and I would add purpose) in the world at prices not necessarily unreasonable given there.

Where to stay in Dubai

Dubai is a city of hotels, with most of the world's leading chains represented. Rooms remain expensive and luxurious, as most establishments cater to visitors with deeper pockets. You can still save money on accommodations if you look hard enough. Move away from the coast for more affordable backpacker hostels and self-service apartments, as well as less expensive hotel rooms where a lack of luxurious amenities and less appealing views keep rates suited to budget travelers.
