Musical dancing fountains
Burj Khalifa skyscraper is a huge complex with its own infrastructure. In addition to the highest observation decks, the Burj Khalifa is famous for its musical fountains located in the territory of the artificial Burj Lake.
Every day hundreds of spectators gather here to watch the music and light show of the dancing fountains. This miracle of engineering proves everyone that Dubai has collected all the most advanced achievements in architecture and construction.
Dubai Mall fountain is also one of the largest and most powerful fountains in the world. It is capable of lifting 83 tons of water to a height of 150 meters. The fountain is equipped with lights, smoke generators and gas nozzles. All this allows the fountain to make a real performance with special effects and music. Although the fountain show is clearly visible from the shore and from nearby cafes, for an additional fee you can take seats in the front row. You can visit a floating platform or sail by boat to the fountains.
tickets and prices
The fountain show is free. The Dancing Fountain Dubai is located in the prestigious DownTown district, at the entrance to the popular Dubai Mall, next to Burj Khalifa. Therefore, the fountain show can be combined with a visit to Burj Khalifa observation deck. From the height opens a beautiful view of the dancing fountains.
We recommend watching the singing fountains from the ground. Most of the sightseeing tours in Dubai include a stop at the fountains. Whether you decide to visit the fountain show on your own or with a tour, don’t forget that it is hard to see the performance well due to the large number of tourists. Sometimes it is not easy to find a spot with the most favorable view.
You can get the water taxi which sails from 05:45 pm to 10:45 pm on the artificial Burj Lake (the time may vary, check the schedule before booking). These Abra boats will take you as close to the fountains as possible. It is a real pleasure to watch the performance from a boat on the lake. If you want to take beautiful photos without crowds of tourists, we recommend visiting the Boardwalk floating platform with 272 meters length. This platform is located only 9 meters from the dancing fountains. You will have an opportunity to enjoy the show and take great photos.
