Went at 14.30 and in not to clear weather. Even though we had a great experience. Elevator trip was amazing. 124 stores in a second(almost) View was spectacular but we were unfortunatly not able to see the palms. Had kids go free tickets thanks to the guy at the ticket counter.

if you are visiting the world's tallest building you might as well visit the world's highest observation deck. It is on the 148th floor and the views are spectacular - from this height it is like being in an airplane. The view shows how Dubai is really a city is the desert, with large plots still waiting to be developed.... More

If you want to see the view of Dubai and all the huge development and building progress, you have to go on top of Burj Khalifa. Burj khalifa is one of the most attractive buildings in the world. The view is amazing specially in the evening.

Thanks to our Groupon deal, we were able to obtain discount fast track passes to the top! This was an exciting visit! We were able to see our hotel, the "Map of the World", but because of the fog, we couldn't see the Palm. Take time to read/listen to the information shared in the videos and on the screens to...

We did the At The Top experience where you just get to go to the 124th floor and spend time looking at the view. The whole experience is a little clinical but very efficient. The elevator to the top takes about a minute and apparently is one of the fastest in the world, your ears pop on the way up... More

Amazing to go to the top of the worlds tallest building, the only downside was it was very hazy so the views weren't as good as they could have been.

Burj Khalifa is next to the Dubai shopping Mall. Tallest building in the world (829meters) to appreciate the engineering structural building than you have to see this. admission is to 124th and 148th floor(cost to 148th floor is 500 Dirham per person & you get Tea & Biscuits). If you can't afford it than you can watch the Dancing Fountain... More

What fantastic views this has! We hadn't pre-booked out tickets but had no trouble purchasing then from the desk, although I found it sneaky that having asked for 2 tickets we were given the 'at the top experience' which does cost more but we didn't mind as you get a talk/tour and it was really interesting to hear how it...

This is the tallest building in the world, if you visit Dubai it is well worth a visit. The views are out of this world.

This building is fantastic! The view is amazing. What impressed us besides the fact that this building is the tallest building in the world is that the view of where the city of Dubai ends and where the desert begins is seen from the observation area.

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.
