I loved the shopping mall next to the Burj Khalifa and outside is a lake that has water fountains in. We timed it just right to go outside and caught the night show of the fountains moving to music and creating a wonderful display, you can have a boat ride on this water but we declined. All this is at... More

If you like good food, good wine and an excellent view... At.Mosphere @ Burj Khalifa is a must. Try the 5 course sampler menu....

Absolutely magnificant views of the city. Particularly enjoyed the cameras which showed you what the city used to look like and the slideshow of pictures throughout the construction!

This is a great experience - the elevator ride at 10 meters a second in itself is a treat. Bring your camera.

What a smooth quick ride to the observation deck. We even went outside and it was not daunting at all. An amazing 360 degree view of the city. As the day was hazy I am pleased we did this at night

its definitely worth it to go up to the top (not entirely) but still great views. tip: every 20 minutes or so, the fountain show starts. luckily, without knowing where exactly the fountains were from up there, we came out from the elevator and went straight ahead. the fountains are right beneath you. we were lucky enough that once the...

Well worth a visit, to be that high up in a building is amazing, the lift up you could not tell the speed you were going apart for my ears popping! We went early and the crowds were quite small, think it could get very busy especially at sun down.

Beautiful view. You go up to the 124th floor (there are about 36 more floors above). You almost don't notice the movement of the lift. Although the tickets have a specific time for entering, you can take all the time you want once you are upstairs. Staff is very friendly.
