Magical Light Shows In Dubai

2. Dubai Fountain
3. Khalifa light show

Although the country is known far and wide for its technological innovations, the Dubai light shows stand a class apart. These spectacular marvels, with their light, sound and water synchronization, take one on an unparalleled multisensory journey. From the history of the Emirates to the ancient Egyptian civilization, these light shows bring together stories from across the globe.

Among all the light shows in Dubai City, the Dubai Fountain show stands out as the biggest spectacle. With its fountain jets rising to heights of over 140 meters, this fantastic choreographed fountain system is truly a spectacle to behold. Set directly behind it is the towering Burj Khalifa, whose laser show is known far and wide as well. Dubai Festival City, on the other hand, presents Imagine, a multi-dimensional light and sound show in the company of water jets and 3D projections, while Wafi Mall showcases the ‘Return of the Pharaohs’ show on a daily basis. Interestingly, all of the light shows in Dubai are absolutely free of cost and do not require tickets.

Dubai Fountain

Without a doubt, the biggest of Dubai light shows, the Dubai fountain is as grand as a spectacle could be. This architectural masterpiece details the history of the Emirates through a spectacular display of lights, sound, and water. Spread across 30 massive acres, this choreographed fountain is the biggest light and sound show anywhere in the world.

The Dubai Fountain show can be enjoyed from anywhere in the vicinity, whether it be the Dubai Lake borders or the Burj Khalifa. The Fountain has recently initiated a Boardwalk as well, allowing spectators to get closer to the Fountain. Spectators can also choose to catch the show from a traditional Abra, which is regarded as the best and most intimate way of watching the fountain performance.

Amazing experience I enjoyed Burj Khalifa and underwater zoo alot. Thanks Thrillophilia for advance tickets booking options.
"it was a great experience. I was bit apprehensive, when I booked through thrillophilia. but, they really organized it well. I booked a VIP package (costing 3800 per person). they arranged for private pick up in Nissan Petrol. They took us to camp, which is little far but better than Al Avir. \n\nLocal operator Mr. Danyal is a nice person. He took a great care of us. \n\nwe were provided land cruiser for dune bashing. then quad bike for 20-25 mins. after that, we did horse ride and camel ride. although camel ride and horse ride were namesake only. they would allow for 2 mins only and if you want to take a longer ride, you need to pay extra. so I skipped it. \n\nCamp had good performances like belly dance, Tanura show, Fire show and Jumba. Food was served on the table. Food quality was average.\n\nalthough, In the camp, they would try to get you money through multiple activities like sand art, Premium fruit salad, premium desserts, handbags, photo printouts, photo with eagle etc. And one needs to hard bargain. like I paid 20 dhiram for photos, they started with 150 dhiram."
