DUBAI FOUNTAIN IS THE WORLD’S BIGGEST FOUNTAIN. GET TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THIS PHENOMENAL CREATION RIGHT HERE.
Imagine a beautiful place with stars held in the sky above your head, and the world around you is filled with the stunning view of music and choreography on the surface of striking still water with the reflections of amazing lights …only the dancers are not humans, but fountains. Yes, the fountains! A view breathtaking and worth watching, isn’t it?
If you happen to visit Dubai by any chance, don’t forget to pay a visit to the man-made lake of iconic Burj Khalifah at the center of Downtown Dubai. You will see a view to be remembered for a lifetime. And it would be even better if you go after the sunsets.
The lake is the home to the world’s largest system of choreographed fountains that covers an area as big as 30 acres. The fountain is animated to the rhythm of an amazing selection of music and 6600 lights with projections in 25 different colors. All this adds up to something beyond imagination! The music selection includes both traditional and world music with Arabic, Indian, American and Italian songs and poetry pieces on the repertoire.
Along with this, the fountain has the capability to spray 22,000 gallons of water in the air at any time. It creates various patterns as well as combinations in the air that is highly appreciated by the spectators.
Dubai Fountain is a creation of California-based company WET, the one behind the fabulous Bellagio Fountains in Las Vegas. The fountains shoot water up to 500 feet and are 275 meters long making a spectrum of over 1000 abstract attractions. The nozzle distribution of Dubai Fountain consists of five circles of different sizes placed along one large and one small arc. It is also visible under clear water from any nearby building in the daylight when the fountain is at rest.
The repertoire is performed daily; in the afternoon and evenings as well. But the most stunning one is the evening show when a whole new world of lights and music comes alive. Air-filled with the sound of a traditional song and the lights and fountains dancing with the rhythm…just imagine the view from up above the sky. The show goes on for hours in the evening, so there is the least chance that you miss it.
Dubai Fountain can be viewed and enjoyed from the decks of all the neighboring high-rise buildings, especially the famous Burj Khalifah and Dubai Mall. But the most amazing view comes when you ride the traditional Abra and float through the colored waters of Burj Khalifah Lake taking an up-close view of this amazing creation… making you stunned at the view of dazzling fountains, lights and music
But where would you get the tickets?! No tickets required, that’s the best thing. You just have to reach the spot outside Dubai Mall or Burj Khalifah and find a suitable place where you can get a clear view of the show.
And when you get there, don’t forget to take your camera so that you can capture this amazing and unique show to bring back home and share with your family and friends. And not to mention, you yourself can relive the moment any time you want.
The Boardwalk, a floating platform located in The Dubai Fountain gives you a whole new perspective of the stunning performances. Visitors commence their journey from Burj Park or the promenade as well as wander down the 272-meter boardwalk. However, it is just nine meters away from the fountains.
In the afternoon, watch the show from 01:00 pm to 01:30 pm. However, on Friday it is scheduled from 01:30 pm to 02:00 pm. The show is held after every 30 minutes in the evening from 6 in the evening to 11 at night every day.
