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!

What People Are Saying About Dubai Fountains
We had a lovely time and enjoyed our trip to the Top. However, we were disappointed to have to queue despite having bought the most expensive "no queue"tickets. It was fine on the way up, but on the way down we had to wait for nearly 40 minutes. This did not meet our expectations and did not provide what we were looking for. However, the views and organisation were otherwise very good.
I bought with Geet your guide as I have an american Express card; the Burj Khalifa site accepts only Master and Visa Card. Tickets gave access with priority to level 148, we did not wait in any que. Unfortunatellly it was a little bit dizzy outside, but this cannot be influenced...
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.
IT was great experience, Burj Khalifa is amazing, can't express in words, you must visit and see the view of Sun sets, superb
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.
