Dancing to songs and compositions from Beethoven to Bhangra, the Dubai Fountain has been captivating crowds as much as the Burj Khalifa that towers over it.

Now on your next trip to Downtown Dubai you can get closer to the jets of water on a new 272-metre floating platform.

Visitors can start from Burj Park or from the fountain promenade and stroll down the boardwalk which gets as close as nine metres to the fountain. That's close enough to make you part of the performance.

The attraction is open from 5pm to 11pm - the best time to go and watch the spectacle in our book. Tickets cost Dh20 per person. Children under four are not allowed on the platform.

Tickets are on sale at the Fountain promenade, Burj Park and At the Top, Burj Khalifa ticket counters. You can also pre-book on the Burj Khalifa website.
