Dubai at Night

Dubai Top Five Attractions Tour Including Admission Tickets and Buffet Dinner
Best parts of this tour was the access to Burj Khalifa viewing deck on floor 125 & 124. The view was simply spectacular, especially the Birdseye view of the Dubai Fountain light show. Dinner @ Armani hotel was great with a good selection of fancy food and dessert to choose from. The Dubai canal cruise was good and offered some great picture taken points of some of Dubai”s eclectic architectural building design.

We had an amazing day with our driver Yusuf who was very helpful, kind and understanding. He made our tour organised so we can see the most of Dubai in such a short time. We would highly recommend this tour especially with Yusuf. Thank you.

Private Dubai City Tour incl Burj Khalifa entry ticket
We were picked up on time and escorted to a clean well presented late model car. We were driven around the city with an interesting and informative commentary, stopping at various points of interest. We walked around the souks and past the retailers. I didn’t know there was so many varieties of spice and aromatic products. Who knew dried lemon could smell so good! A highlight was tasting the camel’s milk ice cream. Ute was a great guide.

How to Get There

The Dubai Fountain is located toward the Dubai Mall side of the Burj Khalifa Lake. The easiest way to get there is by taking the Dubai Metro; ride the red line to the Burj Khalifa/Dubai Mall station and it’s around a 10-minute walk from there. Alternatively, take a cab to the Dubai Mall.

Other Dubai Fountain Viewing Points

For stellar fountain views with fewer crowds, post up on the walkway around the Souk Al Bahar, the shopping complex across the lake from the Dubai Mall. To get there, walk across the Souk Al Bahar bridge—just make sure to do so before crowds descend onto the waterfront.
