Fountains of Dubai
The fountains with the world’s greatest choreographic shows are also among the most incredible. Their sound and light shows are an excellent attraction. There are day and night shows, but the best being at night. Next to Dubai’s tallest tower, the Burj Khalifa, and The Dubai Mall, is Dubai’s free attraction, the Dubai Fountain. Like most sites in Dubai, this fountain was built on the 30 acres of Lake Burj and, after an investment of $218 million, has become a true aquatic work of art. The fountain is 275 meters wide, the water (83,000 liters per show) reaches a height of over 150 meters. The Dubai Fountain makes an impressive show with spouting fountains combined with music and 6,000 lights.
If you want to live a different experience, for 20 AED ($5) you can walk on a platform of 272 meters in the middle of the lake. If you prefer to take a boat, the cost is 65 AED ($18).
Evening shows: every day, every 30 minutes from 6:00 pm to 11:00 pm. Afternoon shows (less impressive) :
Saturday to Thursday: 1:00 pm, 1:30 pm Friday: 1:30 pm, 2:00 pm
