Be mesmerised by Dubai’s unbeatable water show

There’s no wonder The Dubai Fountain is one the city’s most popular (and much-loved) attractions. The captivating choreographed spectacle sees illuminated jets of water projected high into the sky, all to the beats of popular tunes, from Arabian classics to Michael Jackson’s Thriller. With shows taking place every 30 minutes from 6pm onwards, crowds gather along the waterfront promenade daily, cameras at the ready. If you’re feeling peckish, you can grab a seat at one of the many restaurants dotting the promenade, or across a bridge at Souk Al Bahar.

Must-try: The traditional baklava at famed Turkish steakhouse Günaydin in all its sweet and sticky glory.
