We booked this in advance from London which was easy. We booked the 6pm slot purely for the benefit of seeing the view in day and night light. Definately worth the extra (£80 rather than £25). We were greeted into a waiting room where you had some Arabic coffee and dates followed by a tour up to the 125 floor... More

Very cool experience! You go to the 124th floor and see the view of the whole city. This skyscraper makes all the other buildings look small which was quite interesting to see.

It's an incredible example of the Human capacity. The attraction visit is very well organized, but it's so high, that I felt as if I was in a plane... not really emotional. In my opinion, is doesn't worth the money. It's hot (the view is in open air, so don't expect air-conditioning), you will see a "sea of sand", there's... More

Interesting but not as exciting as the Eiffel Tower as there is no real feeling of height - a bit like being in an airplane. Alot faster to get up than the Eiffel tower though - 60 seconds to go half way up in very elaborate lifts. Don't bother with the top level. the view is ample at the lowest... More

It was worth the trip from Scotland just to visit this one stunning location. How do you describe in words this incredible building? Photographs too don't do it justice. Best time to visit is late afternoon/early evening, that way you see it in all it's glory in daylight, sunset and night time. Give yourself plenty of time when you visit,... More

Front start to finish, this blow my mind away. The views are unbelievable, a must to do on a trip to Dubai. Have a look on groupon or other deal sites to get tickets aswell, we saved a over 63% on groupon. Plus got fast track tickets for less than the price of normal tickets.

We visited level 124/125 and were blown away with the view!I don't think you can visit Dubai and not go up! Even the high speed lift was an experience not to be missed:)

Despite going up 124 floors in less than a minute, the lift has been designed with lights and images on the walls to ensure that people dont think about how high they are travelling up. Once at the top, excellent view of Dubai and the surrounding desert.

Excellent view, although Dubai either has a pollution problem (most likely) or the desert sand is always blowing things around and making it dusty. Nice touch to go outside on the viewing platform and take pictures without glass in the way. Also straight downward photos show incredible blue ponds where the light show happens at night.

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.
