How to admire the singing fountain in Dubai
Dubai singing fountains are one of the largest in the world. At first an artificial lake was created in the heart of Dubai. The Californian specialists were involved in the project later to make not just a fountain, but a real show of music, dance and light. 2525 color projectors and 6600 spotlights create the illusion of movement. The most colorful show you'll see at night, when the "dance" of fountains particularly stand out against the background of the blackening sky.

How to do?

1. It's the center of Dubai, so it's easy to get here. Take the metro and go to the Burj Khalifa station or the Dubai Mall. You can also take buses 27, 29 and F13. Get off at the Dubai Mall Terminus or Burj Khalifa.

2. The main landmark is the famous Burj Khalifa. Go from the stop to its side. If the show has already begun, you will see the light of the fountains. They say that it can be seen at a distance of up to 30 km.

3. Watch the jets of the fountain taking the most incredible shapes to the music of famous Arab and Western performers. Sometimes it even plays "Love, like a dream" by Alla Pugacheva.
