We went here after some research on the musts to visit in Dubai. We had a great couple of hours here. The views are brilliant but have to say that's about all there is to do at the top. There isn't much up there, but when you go to dubai you can't go all that was and not go up... More

I took a vip trip to the highest observation point just before sunset and expected to not enjoy the fast ride up. In the lift however I actually had little idea we were moving. The views as expected were fantastic it was a shame there were too many clouds to see the sunset properly but you can't control everything. I... More

the visit of Burj Khalifa in nice experience, but the entrance fee is really expensive. I was there with the group of 60 PAX and what is really uncomfortable - if you are delayed, they will stop you and you are not alout to go in...

We booked a same day ticket in the Dubai Mall, only the most expensive tickets were available on the day(Sky Ticket). We were shown to a waiting room and given tea and Arabic sweets while we waited for our turn to go to the top. In a small group we were guided through the building to a private elevator with...

You can see it from everywhere in dubai. When you are driving to Dubai from somewhere else, it is the sign that you are getting closer. Water show is nice, and trying to take the tower into one photo shot is joyful. Every 30 minutes, there is water show at the large pool, and everybody gets focused on it. Don't... More

The World biggest building and plus fountain show is excellent, if you are going to Dubai, you must visit this Burj Khalifa in the evening, so enjoy excellent fountain with nice music.

The tower experience is amazing, but you need to pick the right time of day or the actual day to visit the landmark. I suggest to go as early as you can. 10 am is best time! Less crowded. Later than 2 would be the worst! And also, go in a weekday. PLAN AHEAD and check timings online!! And after... More

We visited "At the Top" of the Burj Khalifa using tickets we had bought in advance. I recommend buying tickets in advance through their website as doing so enabled us to zip to the top without much waiting (a virtually negligible line of a few people was ahead of us at the entrance to the elevator to the top). I... 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.
