It is quite ironic to have such a large aquatic feature in one of the driest/hottest areas of the Earth. The 30 acre Burj Khalifa Lake contains this massive fountain (sets of fountains). The magnitude of the jets are unreal in that they reach as high as a 50 story building. If you are planning on visiting Dubai then you must visit this attraction as you can take a boat out to the fountain for a personal viewing. Dubai's infrastructure has been above and beyond since the oil bloom in the late 20th century. The massive fountain was officially finished in May of 2009 and will continue to amaze the world for generation to come.
This is not just a randomized fountain feature, it is so high-tech that the jets are synchronized to the culture music of Dubai. Including: Sama Dubai; Baba Yetu, an award-winning song in Swahili; the Arab world’s top-selling dance number Shik Shak Shok; and the signature piece of world-renowned Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli, Con te partiro (Time to Say Goodbye).
