This is one of the most delightful experience is Dubai. I know it could be an overstatement but on a fine evening, just spend couple of hours here watching different shows from the other side (far from The Dubai Mall gate) where crowd is less. You will enjoy this marvellous mixture of water, sound, light and air. Clicking pictures or taking videos is fun but once you are done, just give one show your full peaceful attention and you will feel happy. Probably then my first statement may not sound as an overstatement. Good Luck!

Perfect place for iconic pictures and a truly beautiful and inspiring show with dancing water. Hundreds of synchronized water cannons send in the air water streams and coreographed lights just make things more awesome. Every 30 minutes there is a different show with music of many genres, good for a very varied audience. Find the time to see it, you won't regret

There is nothing like this in Dubai that brings all nationalities together for 10min! Every view is spectacular. These days you can see the fountain show every 30min. Book in any near by restaurants and spend a great night in Dubai. Msg me any time for help and support regarding the place. Also recommend to be on the are of At the top Burj Khalifa entrance. Cheers!

Although the fountain has shows in the afternoon as well, it is best experienced during sunset or immediately after, when laser and light shows accompany the music.
No, they are free. Situated just outside The Mall. You can see the show without any booking and paying, you just should come to Dubai Mall and enjoy.
It was built for AED 800 million (USD 218 million). The name of the fountain was chosen by the developer Emaar Properties as a contest organized.
Two performances are held during the day time; at 1:00 PM and 1:30 PM (afternoon). Dubai fountain timing on Friday: 1:30 PM and 2:00 PM (afternoon). Dubai fountains timings during the evening: 6:00 PM – 11:00 PM (evening).
You can dress as casually as you want, as long as it's appropriate. You can wear shorts in Dubai. Even skirts, if they are at knee length and not shorter than that.
The best time to visit the Dubai Fountains would be in the winter months, spanning roughly from November to March, when the weather is relatively cool and pleasant enough to enjoy an outdoor show. The fountain show is best experienced immediately before sunset, in the dim twilight.
