5 Best Places to View The Dubai Fountains

The majestic fountains at the bottom of the Burj Khalifa are a sight to behold. With jets shooting 150 meters upwards, they're said to be visible from over 20 miles away, but we've picked out the best viewing points for you that are a little closer.

Souk Al Bahar

Get in a little retail therapy here, but also see great views of the fountain show! Have dinner at one of its restaurants facing the Burj Khalifa while admiring the view.

Dubai Mall - Kinokuniya Bookshop

Are you a bookworm? If the answer is yes, browsing this Japanese bookshop (other languages also available) with the fountain show in the background may be your idea of perfection.

Dubai Mall - Waterfront Promenade

If you'd like to get up close on the action, this is a great spot as it's right on the Dubai Lake. Disembark from the abra here, buy your ticket, and enjoy!

Bridge between Souk Al Bahar and Dubai Mall

By day, go shopping in Dubai's premier malls. By night, join the crowds on the bridge and marvel at the illuminated water and buildings adorning the city.

Dubai Creek

See the show while you float! From 5:45PM to 11:30PM (last abra departing at 11:00PM) you'll see the fountains themselves at the Dubai Creek, but also the patterns the lights make on the water!

What People Are Saying About Dubai Fountains

It was great experience to get on the tallest building in the world.

It was great experience to get on the tallest building in the world. View from the 124 floor is just amazing. I have lot of perfect photos. And time of visiting ( from 5 PM until 6 PM )is just perfect cause you get day view and the night view.

Always a great way to see the main sights and get your bearings

2 main routes - red and blue plus extra gold router to the Marina and JBR and pink route that went on outer edge of The Palm. Took the 48 hour ticket but still not enough time to do it all. The extras include the aquarium in Dubai Mall which is excellent and the Dubai Museum which is definitely worth a visit. The staff don't always give accurate info re timings. We were told a bus would be 20 minutes (standard, as they should come every 20 minutes) but in fact it was an hour!! No excuse re traffic, as 3 of the Big Bus company passed us. Very frustrating. Only downside is the traffic in Dubai is now horrendous so you spend a lot of time waiting in queues. The free water is a welcome bonus.

Fantastic Experience, definitely worth every penny

The moment you walk through the main entrance, you're treated like a distinguished guest. It truly is a highly commendable package, that comes with outstanding service and ofcourse the convenience of skipping the long waiting queues at the gate.

Just a breathtaking addictive experience

Really great view up close but just wish it was longer and could see more than one show as its different every day. Also its quite a short trip less than half hour in total.
