#1 of 837 in Things to do in United Arab Emirates
Enjoy the show at Dubai Fountains, located on a 12 hectare (30 acre) manmade lake beneath the city's megatall skyscraper. The elaborate set of choreographed water features was the largest of its kind upon completion in 2009. The fountains shoot water up to 152.4 m (500 ft) into the air, in time to a varied playlist of songs from around the world. A total of 6,600 lights and 25 colored projectors illuminate the waters, creating quite a spectacle around midday and regularly in the evenings.

    A short but spectacular display appearing to be in front of the Burgh Khalifa. Plays twice but need to be at a viewing area reasonably ahead of time as crowds of people arrive to see the display.  more »

Where to stay in Dubai

Dubai is a city of hotels, with most of the world's leading chains represented. Rooms remain expensive and luxurious, as most establishments cater to visitors with deeper pockets. You can still save money on accommodations if you look hard enough. Move away from the coast for more affordable backpacker hostels and self-service apartments, as well as less expensive hotel rooms where a lack of luxurious amenities and less appealing views keep rates suited to budget travelers.
