The Dubai Fountain, one the city's most popular attractions, has added a Boardwalk, allowing visitors to get closer to the action than ever before.

The floating platform, which spans 272 metres, extends from Burj Park and delivers visitors just nine metres away from what is the world’s largest performing fountain.

Open daily between 5-11pm, it costs AED20 to take a walk along the platform and tickets are available from the Fountain Promenade, Burk Park and At The Top ticket counters.
