Fantastic Architectural Creation

We actually visited the Burj Kalif in 2013 going up to the viewing level, a magnificent building. A real jewel in the desert,

We paid extra for 30 mins at the higher level first then down to the lower level for as long as you like. Yes it is a bit pricey but If you want to see it then you have to pay the price! No queues for us and were treated like VIPs!! The view obviously depends on the weather and... More

Visiting the Burj Khalifa was fantastic. The observation area is on the 124th floor. It is cheaper if you book your tickets on line, the day ahead. The problem with that is: you aren't sure of the visibility. It the winds are high and the desert sand is blowing, you won't be able to see much. We got lucky the... More

We booked our tickets on line in advance and found the entrance easily in the Dubai Mall. We found the waiting in line not too bad and managed to take in the views easily. Only downside was the noise one small toddler made whilst having a Tantrum at The Top. What a relief when the parents decided to stay up... More

This is one of those tourist things you have to do once, if you are in Dubai. If you want go go up (which we didn't) book your ticket well in advance to avoid the lines. Nice surrounding, I would say you should go there in the morning, buy something for breakfast, and have it sitting somewhere around the lake.

The sheer size of the Burj Khalifa is to be marvelled at. With the sun shining it gave it quite a spectacular appearance. Well worth a visit.

Where else in the world can you replicate the experience? Obviously weather conditions are going to affect your view, but that's altitude for you. They do also try to push as many expensive photos on you than you would think possible but you can push through all that. Otherwise it's a very clean and organised operation. What I will criticise...

You cannot visit Dubai and not visit the Burj. You have to go to the top whether during the day or at night as the views are fantastic and you get to see a lot of Dubai.

We booked our tickets which was a great idea as they were sold out when we got there.. also paid extra for fast track which meant no queuing to get up but better still to get down as the queues to get down were very very long... My husband informed me he doesn't do heights as we approached the attraction... More

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
