Full description

Marvel at the illuminations of Dubai Mall Fountain Show on a 30-minute cruise by "abra" water taxi. A captivating water, music and light spectacle in Downtown Dubai, the Dubai Fountain is the world’s tallest performing fountain.

At over 900 feet in length (274 meters), the Dubai Fountain is situated on the 30-acre (120,000 m2) Burj Lake and performs to a selection of different melodies. Climb aboard the traditional wooden boat on Burj Lake, and cruise past some of the city's most iconic monuments, such as the Burj Khalifa, Souk Al Bahar, and Palace. Admire the city's stunning skyline from the water, before you take your position for a grandstand view of the illuminations. 

With only 6 people per boat, you are able to admire the visual spectrum of over 1,000 water expressions from an exclusive and intimate perspective.  Watch in awe as the fountains light up during a visual spectacle that features 6,000 lights, 25 colored projectors, and 22,000 gallons (83,000 liters) of airborne water! See a stunning choreography of light and water synced to classical, Arabic, and world music that will leave you breathless.

Die Beschreibung des Weges ist nicht richtig, wir haben die Ablegestelle trotzdem relativ zügig gefunden, da ich vorher schon die Kommentare mit der korrekten Wegbeschreibung gelesen habe. Wer zum ersten Mal in Dubai bzw. Der Dubai Mall ist sollte mehr Zeit einplanen, da der Voucher in der Dubai Mall eingetauscht werden muss. Alles in allem war es eine tolle Erfahrung. Die Wasserspiele wirken vom Wasser aus nochmal ganz anders. Würde ich definitiv wiederholen.

What can I say, simply stunning. Watching the fountain show from the land is wonderful, although you do have to contend with hordes of other people watching and wanting the best views. Being in the lake to see the show certainly adds a different dimension and makes the experience so much more memorable.

The boat ride is most highly recommended as it gives you an amazing view of the fountain show and Burj Khalifa in its full glory. The only issue was that the instructions gave the wrong meeting point and we nearly missed our boat. They instructed on email to go to the ticket kiosk in front of a restaurant when in fact the kiosk was elsewhere.
