This is the highest building in the world and the views are mind blowing. A beautiful building with fountains at the bottom that rival the Bellagio's in Las Vegas.

An amazing piece of architecture, although we expected more from the views from the top. We went just after dusk, I would advise visiting during daylight to get the best views.

A bit too pricey for just an elevator ride that only takes you to the 124th floor. Yes, there are some nice views, but nothing breathtaking. DO NOT purchase the fast-track ticket for 300 AED or you will be sorry. Book ahead on their website and save some money, even then it's overpriced. Also, do not waste your money on... More

The Burj Khalifa "at the top" experience is very well managed, and,on average, is therefore mostly devoid of the touristy crowd hassles. Booking for a visit slot is done in advance, (online is best, although one can advance book on site) and the lift whisks visitors to the 124th floor taking less than a minute, with minimal queuing.

Definately worth a visit if in Dubai. Booked tickets on line and avoided lines. It is also worth leaving plenty of time to shop before as access is through huge shopping mall.

Enjoyed drinks (and cigars) at The Atmosphere bar on the 123rd floor of the Burj Khalifa. Our waiter was absolutely fantastic and tended to our every need. Cocktails were some of the very best I have tasted.

Visiting the Burj Khalifa was great. Unfortunately we did catch a day with very limited visibility, but just seeing the tower and the architecture was unforgettable.
