Yes, dancing fountains are a bit hokey, maybe even a bit Vegas, but even the cynics will be dazzled by this fountain display. Crowds start to gather well before each show, which happens about every half-hour starting at 6PM (there is one show in the afternoon). The beauty of the display is also, of course, a display of wealth: water fountains in the desert. The entire show—lights, sound, water—is a fitting testament to Dubai, where human will has triumphed over geography. http://dobuysee.com/city/dubai/dubai-fountain-timings-and-location/

Water Fountain in Dubai
There's shopping then there's Shopping. At Dubai Mall you can shop, eat, drink, smoke shisha, ice skate, and sip cocktails while watching a water fountain show complete with music and lights (at night). It's a mix of locals and foreigners mingling and taking snapshots of the architecture, the water, or the Burj Khalifa.
