The Dubai Fountain is the world’s largest musical fountain. It sits at the center of the Burj Khalifa lake and shoots water up to 140 meters high with accompanying classical and contemporary music.
The Dubai Fountain is also a technological wonder that uses 6,600 WET Superlights and 25 color projectors with a total output of 1.5 million lumens.
One can say that a visit to Dubai is not complete without visiting the delightful Dubai Fountain. Late afternoons can be spent strolling around the lake as the captivating water, light, and music spectacle can be viewed from any point on the lake promenade. This is also a wonderful opportunity to enjoy Arab culture through its music.
Since it is located near the Dubai Mall, one can shop around and wind down at the Dubai Fountain in a single trip to the area.
Best of all, the performance is free! So, there is no need to shell out extra cash to enjoy this wonderful treat.
