Extremely hyped place. Nothing great. One would rather visit the Canton Tower in Guangzhou, China as there is much more to do there.

Being the tallest structure in Dubai, the Burj Khalifa dominates the skyline no matter where you are in the city. A trip to the top is simply a must do. The view will depend on the weather, quite often the heat/humidity can make the view hazy, but still worth the trip in my opinion. The view of the fountains is... More

We purchased tickets at the attraction which was convenient. The view was amazing and you were able to spend as long as you liked gazing at city and desert.

Went up at night, but next time would choose to go in daytime to see more of Dubai skyline. Glad we did it and would do so again.

Not for the faint hearted! You travel up to the 124th floor in a speedy lift which takes about 3 seconds. Once your ears have popped you go out to the viewing deck for a 360 view of Dubai. Really good view, but not much else to do there. We went at sunset and you get some great photos at... More

View of the fountains is fantastic and Dubai is fantastic. The lift takes you to 125th floor extremely fast, giving you information on what height you are at as you travel. Great experience not to be missed when in Dubai. I agree the price is a bit steep, but it is a one off experience.

Considered to be the tallest building in the world, we were excited to go up there and have a look at the view below us. The view was awesome and breathtaking and the fountains below displaying the beautiful colors in the night was a view to watch from the top. Though it is expensive attraction but worth going once in... More

Very impressive and worth a trip to that part of town to see. The tallest building in the world stands like a beacon in the middle of the city. Beautifully designed. I did not go inside but nonetheless impressive from the outside.

You cannot come to Dubai and not experience the Burj Khalifa! It is very busy and does charge quite a bit more if you want to go at the peak time of sunset. Many people recommended to go at night time to see it all lit up as it can get very dusty in the day. We went at night... 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.
