What an impressive structure this is! The world's tallest building is so futuristic and is amazing as it watches you wherever you are in Dubai. The "At The Top" attraction rockets you quickly up to the 120somethingth floor from where you have excellent views of the city and the surrounding desert. The whole thing about the buildings in Dubai is... More

Great attraction ...all 160 floors of it. Take a very speedy elevator to the 120th floor observation deck where you can see all of Dubai. Called At the Top it is indeed a unique and fun thing to do while in Dubai.

The design and architectural experience on viewing the Burj Khalifa is one of amazement. It really is a majestic building inside and out. I would recommend the journey to the viewing platform for the elevator experience if nothing else.

We were advised to prebook our visit, which we did AED125 each, it would cost AED400 if you turn up, what a relief that we did prebook, I would have been most upset to pay the full rate for such a disappointing experience, so called " at the top2 which to our minds is misleading, all the pomp and circumstance...

This is the tallest building on the planet & it is a fantastic building visually. We booked the Amani bar and the lift up to the 126th floor was so fast & smooth it was hard to believe how high we were travelling. The views are amazing, even from the toilets!

Once you are around Burj Khalifa, you simply have to go in 123th floor to feel the tallness of this building. Delicious mango daiquiri is served there. Minimal you have to spend 150 dirhams per person.

The burj Kalifa is impressive, being the tallest building in the world. We bought our tickets on line, you still had to queue for around 30 minutes in various parts of the building before you got to the lifts. It is worth spending 30 minutes or so, at the top taking photographs, before queueing to descend. The reason for my... More
