As of this writing, out of 82 tourist attractions in Dubai, The Dubai Fountain (also called the Dancing Fountain), is the #1 most voted by travelers (TripAdvisor) as the the best attraction in Dubai. It is located at the center of the Downtown Dubai set on the 30-acre manmade Burj Khalifa lake. The fountain is 275 m (902 ft) long and sends water over 150 m (490 ft) into the air.
