When you are in Dubai, it goes without saying that you should visit the world’s largest shopping center, Dubai Mall. In addition to a beautiful Soukh and the Burj Khalifa, Dubai Mall also has a large artificial lake with one of the world’s largest fountain shows.
The fountain show at the Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall was until recently the largest in the world. This gigantic fountain consists of no less than 5 circles with powerful jets and more than 60,000 lights so that you can also enjoy the show in the evening and at night.
The fountain shows start at 6 pm and are held every half hour until 9 pm. You can also enjoy the fountain show twice during the day, namely at 1 pm and 1:30 pm except on Friday. On Friday the fountains start at 1.30 pm and 2.00 pm.
Most shows last 5 minutes, although there are quite a few special shows that can last a little longer.
To complete your visit to the Dubai Fountain, you can also opt for a Burj Lake Boat Tour. This small tour shows you some nice spots on the lake in front of the Burj Khalifa and allows you to experience the fountains up close.
By ordering tickets to experience the fountain show from a boat in the Burj Lake you can not only take beautiful photos and videos of the show, but also take some special selfies and photos with the Burj Khalifa in the background.
The tour of the Burj Lake takes about 30 minutes. You will glide across the lake in an abra or traditional water taxi. The boats are small, so you always have a pleasant and private experience.
The fountains dance to a variety of songs. For example, you can attend a fountain show where Baby Shark is played – great fun for the little ones, where Christopher Tin’s Baba Yetu plays through the speakers, or even shows with songs by Lady Gaga. You do not know in advance which songs will be played and will always be a surprise. In addition, the repertoire of the fountain show also changes very often, so that the show always remains new, fun and surprising.
