      The Emaar Water Spectacle (Dubai)is simply breathtaking, wow what a wonderful collection of fountains, they are so beautiful. Another favorite is the Peterhof Fountain the one where its a gold merman holding open the mouth of a fish and the water is shooting straight up in the air, simply awesome.

      I've had the pleasure of walking around the wealth fountain in Singapore. Before it shoots up two stories you can enter on the first floor and walk around and encourage (wealth) - I did - and take pictures. Lovely.

      I've seen many fountains around the world - and loved them all. Thank you!
