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.

  • Spectacle of indescribable beauty, causing a deep impression on who had the good fortune to observe at least once. Among so many Dubai attractions, just a place where water is rare and precious article, perhaps the most beautiful is this show in which water is the main artist. Several performances every night. Side note-the spectators usually remain smiling.
