Top sights in Dubai
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
It's a spectacular sight all year round!
The afternoon shows are at 1:00PM and 1:30PM, except on Fridays, when it's 1:30PM and 2:00PM. In the evenings, the shows occur every 30 minutes, between the hours of 6:00PM and 11:00PM.
Fountain lake rides in the evening are 65 AED per person. You can get good value for money by including the fountain viewing as part of a larger Dubai tour.

What people are saying about Dubai Fountains
There was great communication throughout the process of excursion. The tour guide picked up my wife and I promptly from our hotel and took us to the dessert destination. We started off with the dessert tour (please advice that you shouldn't either eat too much or go on an empty stomach as the motions of the car can make you feel sick). The driver was attended enough to ensure all passengers in the car are happy. after the tour we had a BBQ lunch and a few traditional dancer shows to keep us entertained. we also had the chance of smoking shisha (if your into that and handling falcons, which was rather interesting. followed by camel riding and pictures with the baby camels. Overall this was very much value for money. and I most certainly would recommend this again. I have to give an extra thank you to Iklaq who was the tour guide who looked after all passengers including myself who were in his vehicle :)
On arrival at the Burg Khalifa counter to exchange our voucher for tickets we were given the opportunity to upgrade to the 148th floor. We decided to do this. Only 20 of us in our group, you can stay all day if you wish. Therefore no crowds. We were also given Arabic tea and nibbles in the viewing lounge which is very nice. We were able to go outside on the viewing deck. We were also able to go down to the 124th and 125th floors. There was a haze so our photos aren’t fabulous. For me it was the experience of being so high up, such an amazing building. There aren’t a lot of tourists in Dubai in July. It really wasn’t necessary to buy tickets in advance but it doesn’t matter either way. I imagine it would be advisable during peak times. We had no problem finding where to exchange our vouchers.
I had booked this trip from England, for my family and I. Amira our travel guide was fantastic speaking English and German, very impressive! We had a small tour of only 7 people so we felt very special. The shuttle picks you up from your hotel and drops you back there, which is perfect and so convenient. You see SO much, more or less of everything in Dubai, in such a short space of time. If you are in Dubai for a few days, it is great. Everything is explained in so much detail and you learn so much about how fantastic Dubai really is. Fantastic service and a fantastic activity. Thank you so much!
Tried to purchase ticket to level 124/5 at the desk and the lady sold us tickets to Level 148 at 555Aed about £125 p person was told this was not available. She was very rude as we requested a refund which she did and someone told us we could purchase the £35 ticket online. Lady at information desk connected us onto wifi and we paid £70 for 2 to 124 level queued and you should have seen her face this was all done in about 10 mins. The day was hazy and once up there it was worth it for £35 but not for £125 they prey on people being ignorant.
This is the second time I’ve booked this activity and will do every time I visit Dubai. This activity is a definite must if visiting Dubai. You’ll get to relax on an Abra water taxi around the lake before watching the stunning water fountain light show. You’ll take in all the panoramic views and the stunning Burj Khalifa. It’s suitable for friends, couple and family’s and the price is well worth it and good value for money.
