The Dubai Fountain
The Dubai Fountain is so large and bright it can be seen from space. In fact it’s the world’s largest fountain. You’d be a fool not to go and see one of the shows if you are in Dubai. It is truly breath-taking.
The evening shows are the best, in my opinion, as the fountain is lit up against the black skies. The fountain dance is set to a mixture of Arabic, classical and world music. There are over six and a half thousand lights and 25 projectors. The water shoots over 140 feet in the air (equivalent to a 45-story building).
The evening shows start at 6pm each day and run every 30 minutes, until 11pm. You can get to the fountain via the back exit at the Dubai Mall.
I loved the fountain show. The backdrop against the Burj Khalifa (the world’s tallest building) is awesome. I loved the music, the way the lights and the water danced. But if you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ll remember how excited I got about seeing the Magic Fountain in Barcelona.
If you want to get close and personal with the fountain, you can book a seat on one of traditional abra boats at show time and you can enjoy the spectacle from the water. This currently cost 65 dirham (about £12.50).
So if you are travelling to Dubai, you should definitely add a visit to the Dubai Mall to check out the Dubai fountain show to your hit list. I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.
