The Dubai Fountain ~ Lady & her Sweet Escapes

The Dubai Fountain

There are a lot of musical fountains in the UAE, yet the Dubai Fountain at Burj Lake in Downtown Dubai remains to be the most astonishing of them all. California-based WET, the creators of the Bellagio fountain in Las Vegas, designed the Dubai Fountain. It is the world's largest dancing fountain with a length of 900 ft and has nozzles capable to shoot water sprays up to 500 ft high

When my husband and I were newbies in Dubai, we wanted to go to Dubai Mall every weekend just to watch the fountain show. It somehow eased the homesickness and helped us chase the blues away. Worries were forgotten as the water started to dance in graceful and whimsical ways. We have watched the show in every angle; from Dubai Mall, from Souk Al Bahar, from Burj Park, from Burj Khalifa and we even had an aerial view from a restaurant's terrace.

 It was even more breathtaking from Dubai Mall's viewing decks at several restaurants.

Now, we don't get to watch the fountain show as often as before, mainly because Dubai has a lot to offer and not because we got tired after watching a thousand times. We can never have enough of the free and amazing world-class entertainment. The Dubai Fountain remains to be our favorite, a trip to Downtown Dubai is never complete without watching a show or two. It never fails to impress and de-stress.
