General info: 

The Dubai Fountain is the world’s biggest fountain and contains over six thousand lights and projectors that give the unique touch, especially when the water reaches its maximum height, 500ft. It is located in the middle of the Burj Khalifa Lake, next to the biggest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa and close to the world's biggest shopping mall, the Dubai Mall.
The Dubai Fountain stretches on an area of 900ft and can spray 22,000 gallons of water. However, the most impressive thing about it is the synchronization of water shots, music and lights. Combined with fireworks, often set from the top of the Burj Khalifa, the Dubai fountain is a truly unforgettable sight.

Getting there:

The entrance to the Burj Khalifa area with the view of the fountain is about 18 U.S. dollars.
