The Fountain of Wealth is the largest fountain in the world, is located within the commercial complex of Suntec City in Singapore.

The fountain structure is made of bronze, and consists of a circular ring with a circumference of 66 metres supported on four large slanted columns. The base area of the fountain is 1,683 square metres. In the design plan of Suntec City, where the five tower blocks represent the fingers and thumb of a left hand emerging from the ground, the fountain forms the palm of the hand.

The base of the fountain is located underground, and on its base perimeter lies the main basement restaurant area of Suntec City. The circular ring top of the fountain is visible at ground level. During certain periods of the day, the fountain is turned off and visitors are invited to walk around a mini fountain at the centre of the fountain's base for good luck. At night, the fountain is the setting for a small laser show.

When The Amazing Race 3 came to Singapore in 2002, contestants collected a clue at the fountain. Contestants on The Amazing Race Asia 1 also went to the fountain for a clue.
