Dubai Fountain: fountain show, visit, where it is, photo, video

The Dubai Fountain or the Singing Fountain Dubai is one of the largest and tallest dancing fountains in the world, which is located in the center of Dubai and shows light and music performances daily.

Dubai Fountain is one of the main Dubai attractions.

The fountain is located in the center of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), in the artificial lake Burj (also known as Fountain Lake), which has an area of more than 120,000 sq.m., and next to the Burj Khalifa skyscraper and a large shopping and entertainment Dubai Mall center.

There is a promenade around the lake, from which you can admire the fountain of Dubai. The architectural Souk Al Bahar Bridge spans the lake, from which it is best (subjective opinion) to watch the fountain show with a view of the Burj Khalifa skyscraper.

The show can also be watched from the terraces of cafes and restaurants overlooking the lake; from observation decks located on floors 124, 125 and 148 Burj Khalifa Skyscraper.

The Dubai Fountain is a choreographic system of water-jet fountains consisting of five circles of different sizes and two arches.

The Dubai Fountain has a variety of water jets that emit water in the air in various combinations and patterns and reach a height of up to 150 meters.

During the show, the fountain jets "dance" to the music, creating stunning compositions in which a lot of water jets then gracefully bend, then abruptly throw up.

During the show, the fountain is illuminated. The sounds of the melodies to which the fountain dances are different - ranging from classical to modern Arabic and European motifs.

The fountain shows take place during the day and in the evening, when it gets dark. Of course, the evening shows make the greatest impression. Each show lasts, as a rule, 5 minutes and includes one melody.

Daytime performances take place at 13:00 and 13:30 hours.
