It is a nice experience to go there, firstly to be in the highest building, secondly to see area of Dubai from a plane perspective. Good visibility is a must, but it is difficult to plan it since you buy tickets in advance. If you don't, they are very expensive! Try to be there just before the sunset or sunrise... More

We visited Burj Khalifa Tower. The approach is through Dubai Mall. We visited 124 the Floor of the building which was an amazing experience. Though number of visitors was large, the crowd was managed properly. There was an excellent view of Dubai from the 124 the Floor of the Tower.

Oh wow, what a view, and the specifications of the build will shock you. if you want the cheaper ticket, get it between 9am and 3pm and make sure you book, if you turn up there, you probably will not be able to get up, you can pre book from England on line

If you are in Dubai, this is a must visit landmark in dubai. One of the tallest building you can litreally sea beyond dubai on from the top. The fountains at the basement in the evening is good evening entertainment

It just doesn't look real. Instead, even when you are standing right below it it looks like a CGI. Particularly at night. The excellent rating for this is based on being outside and looking up at it. If we are talking about the viewing platform then.. "meh". Good for what it is, and if you want to tick a box... More

given the landscape in dubai, which is sand and skyscrapers, the view is what you can get, but it is still amazing to be so high

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.
