The Dubai Fountain
Not just any dancing water show, The Dubai Fountain is an entertainment destination in its own right. The world’s tallest performing fountain fronts the Dubai Mall promenade and is a must-see experience for every visitor to the emirate. Submerged beneath the 30-acre Burj Lake, thousands of powerful water jets are laid out across an area spanning the length of two football pitches. Be prepared to be entranced at the sight of jets reaching as high as 140 metres in the air, releasing up to 22,000 gallons of water at a time, set to a cross-cultural illuminated musical backdrop. Once dusk sets in at 6pm, the fountains come to life every 30 minutes for an aquatic spectacle that blends colour and melody as the water jets sway and dance to a pre-recorded collection of pop, classic and opera numbers from some of the world’s best loved singers and bands. For an added value experience, The Dubai Fountain Boardwalk takes visitors on a 272-metre-long floating platform stroll across the lake.
