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!

A brilliant experience with a wonderful guide

We all thoroughly enjoyed the tour, it was breath taking when we first looked out of the windows at the top. Our Guide was exceptionally helpful and polite. An experience never to be forgotten.

Really great experience highly recommend it

It was a lovely 30 min very peaceful and relaxing, wonderful to see the area from the water and really special experience to watch the fountains from that angle! Staff were friendly and helpful, boat wasn't crowded. Highly recommend it

had a great time will definitely do another tour next time

The tour great and we got to see a lot of the nice places in Dubai. I think i would choose an earlier one next time so wouldn't be wandering around in the dark trying to take photos. I met some nice people and we had a good tour guide.

View is good. price of 340AED is too costly

fast track is 200% more costlier than 34USD for regular entry. View is terrific but not for the cost of 93USD / 340AED. Thanks for the service.

Great way to see main attractions of Dubai

We thoroughly enjoyed our day tour of Dubai. Our guide Abdullah was a joy to be with. He was knowledgeable, funny and nothing was too much trouble for him. It was a great way to see most of what Dubai has to offer which then allowed us to decide where we would like to go back and see/explore in more detail. The price was excellent value. We would definitely recommend this tour, especially to people who are only in Dubai for the day.
