The 8 acres of land that make up the Dubai Fountain are home to the world's largest choreographed fountain performance. It takes place near Dubai's Burj Khalifa Lake. The fountain system was officially unveiled during the Dubai Mall's opening and is essentially a component of it. When the shows are on, the fountain's distinctive construction is visible up to 20 miles away.

This amazing water feature's design consists of two arcs and five circles of varying sizes. The strong nozzles can blast up to 83 thousand liters of water at a 500-foot height. The platform's 50 color projectors and 6,600 lights can produce up to 1000 different water and light patterns, which results in a mesmerizing appearance.

Arabic classical music as well as contemporary international pop songs by artists like Andrea Bocelli, Michael Jackson, and Whitney Houston are all featured in the background music. Daily fountain performances can last up to five minutes. Every location along the lake promenade offers a good view of the fountain show, which is enhanced by music and light displays.

Additionally, spectators can take in the spectacle from any other nearby building that has a view of Burj Lake. At night, laser shows go along with the fountain dances. Two facilities are available at the Dubai Fountains to let visitors get closer to the fountain display. A wooden structure called the Dubai Fountain Boardwalk was constructed on Burj Lake.

The audience can go as close as 9 meters to see the performance. In addition, the Dubai Fountain Lake Ride enables guests to view the performance from classic Abra boats on Burj Lake. Both venues' tickets must be reserved in advance. There is no admission price for the daily, at least one show each day, performance.

Points to Remember: Here are some pointers that any visitor to the Dubai Fountains should bear in mind:

  • It's important to have appropriate clothing on or with you because it can get chilly at night or in the evenings near the fountain. Crowds for the fountain shows build up quickly. Booking tickets early, preferably a few days in advance, will ensure that you receive seats with a good view of the sound and light extravaganza.
  • Even though the fountain performs in the afternoon, it is best seen around sunset or right after when light and laser shows go along with the music.
