The emirate of Dubai’s popular moniker as the ‘City of Gold’ is truly well deserved. With its shiny high-rises along the length of Sheikh Zayed Road, the Burj Khalifa sparkling from a distance, and everything that’s luxurious and over the top in this city of superlatives, Dubai continues to offer new, exciting and unique experiences to local and international visitors alike.
Aside from having its own gold-dispensing ATM, it’s only at certain restaurants in Dubai where you’ll find various dishes featuring 23-24K edible gold as garnish. These include:
When it comes to the fabulous sights offered in the city, one of the most highly anticipated presentations is the IMAGINE Dubai laser, light and water show at the Dubai Festival City Mall.
So, if you haven’t witnessed the spectacle for yourself, don’t miss out on this incredible experience on your next visit. Here are 4 reasons why it’s a must-see event:
The IMAGINE laser, light and water show is a nightly event which has won two Guinness World Records; that is, as the world’s largest water screen projection, and for having the largest permanent projection mapping worldwide.
This grand production harnesses the power of water, light, fire, surround sound and laser technology to create a stunningly magical visual presentation. The fountains are already a treat in and of themselves, but when the various elements of IMAGINE are combined, what you’ll get is an awe-inspiring, enchanting experience. No wonder every IMAGINE show always ends with a resounding applause.
Dubai Festival City Mall provides IMAGINE entertainment totally free of charge. This means that shoppers at the mall get the added bonus of watching the IMAGINE laser, light and water show.
IMAGINE is held at the Festival Bay area during weekdays (Monday to Thursday), from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. (every hour), and on weekends (Friday to Sunday), from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. (every hour).
One of the most highly anticipated attractions is the Stardancer Show which starts at 7 p.m. The other regular shows include ‘A Child’s Dream’ and ‘A Pirate’s Tale.’
You can actually watch the show while enjoying a meal with family and friends at any of the waterfront restaurants. Of course, you can stay at Festival Bay too in order to experience IMAGINE up close.
Fans of the various IMAGINE shows would be very happy to know that the mall is adding more show-stopping spectacles to the programme this summer.
Dubai Festival City Mall has partnered with the Anghami streaming platform, and is adding popular new hits to the IMAGINE show, featuring ‘Momken’ by Saif Nabeel and Balquees, and ‘Bad Habits’ by Ed Sheeran.
So, prepare to be amazed and captivated some more by the music of Saif Nabeel and Balquees, and get ready to dance to Ed Sheeran’s tune the next time you watch IMAGINE.
Whether you’re going to Dubai Festival City Mall to shop or watch IMAGINE, you and your family can actually make a day of it by going there early. At the mall, you’re sure to find some of your favourite shops and entertainment centres.
