The Dubai Fountain is the world’s tallest performing fountain, in Downtown Dubai. At over 900 ft in length – equivalent to over two football pitches – The Dubai Fountain is situated on the 30-acre artificial Burj Khalifa Lake between the Dubai Mall, the Souk Al Bahar, and the Burj Khalifa.

The Dubai Fountain has a unique design comprising five circles of varying sizes and two arcs, and features powerful water nozzles that shoot water up to impressive heights. It consists of many high-pressure water jets and shooters: oarsmen or water robots, which can make the water seem to dance, shooters, which shoot water upwards; super shooters, which shoot water under more pressure up to 240 feet in the air, and extreme shooters, which can shoot water under the most pressure to 500 ft in the air.

The Dubai Fountain is the world’s largest choreographed fountain system and performs to a selection of different melodies. Illuminated by 6,600 lights and 25 coloured projectors, the fountain can shoot 83,000 liters of water at any moment accompanied by a range of classical to contemporary Arabic and world music. The beam of light shining upward from the fountain can be seen from over 20 miles away, and is visible from space, making it the brightest spot in the Middle East.

Performances are held daily between 6 pm and 11 pm at every half an hour. It’s one of the greatest tourist attraction in Dubai. It’s really worth watching.
