1. Moonlight Rainbow Fountain, Seoul, Korea

Korea

Take a look at some of the most breathtaking and captivating water fountains, from the extravagant Dubai Fountain to the vivid Moonlight Rainbow Fountain in Seoul.The Moonlight Rainbow Fountain is the world’s longest bridge fountain, measuring a spectacular 1,140 meters (3,740 feet) long. Installed in 2009 on the Banpo Bridge, the fountain repeatedly pumps water from the Han River below in an effort to remain eco-friendly. Along each side of the bridge, 380 nozzles spray water 140 feet horizontally. As the water jets sway to a wide selection of music, 10,000 LED nozzles illuminate them, creating a rainbow effect.

2. La Joute Fountain, Montreal

Every night throughout the summer, La Joute Fountain puts on a dramatic 32-minute show that begins with mist and ends with a ring of fire. Jean-Paul Riopelle created the bronze fountain sculpture in 1969, and today it sits in front of the colorful window panels of the Palais des congrès de Montréal.

3. Fountains of Bellagio, Las Vegas

The Fountains of Bellagio are located right in the middle of the Vegas Strip, so you can’t miss them. Spouts of water shoot nearly 500 feet into the air and dance to a repertoire of music, including Elvis Presley’s “Viva Las Vegas” and Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On.” Depending on time of day, the fountain performs every 15 minutes or every half hour and the show is free.

4. Swarovski Kristallwelten (Swarovski Crystal Worlds), Austria

Australia

The Swarovski Crystal Worlds opened to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Swarovski. Its striking fountain, a prominent face with piercing crystal eyes and a watering mouth, serves as the entrance to 14 underground “Chambers of Wonder,” which display eye-popping crystalline structures.

5. Jet d’Eau, Geneva, Switzerland

Switzerland

The first Jet d’Eau came to be in 1886 when an engineer installed an outlet at a hydraulic factory to release water pressure. The outlet produced a plume 30 meters (98 feet) high and quickly became an attraction. Soon after, Geneva decided to relocate the fountain to a more public location and today, it sits on Lake Geneva. Jet d’Eau forces out 132 gallons of water per second over 400 feet into the air.
