This is an engineering marvel. This is well run tour that shows construction details that can only impress. The ride up and down the speedy elevators is an experience in itself. The floors whiz by but you can hardly feel any movement. Once on top, the views are fantastic. You have to be reminded that several of the "little" buildings... More

We selected the 6.30pm sunset viewing time. There were just too many people packed onto the viewing deck on the 124th floor to get a worthwhile view. The haze was also so pervasive that the image of the city beneath was really a monochromatic blur. Earlier in the day, late afternoon for example, might have been more rewarding, but most... More

You cannot not go to Dubai and visit this amazing place. We timed our visit to watch the fountain show afterwards

This was a great experience. We had done At The Top but this is even better. You are personally greeted and in a group of six you go into a private room where you are served Arabic coffee and dates. Then your own personal guide escorts you to a private elevator for the one minute ride to level 148. Here... More

Second trip up there Burj. This time to the 148 floor - 505 metres above the earth. Great ambience and a well design space. Soft drinks and canapés when you arrive. There is an interactive room where you control the map and can 'fly' to parts of the city - very imaginative and space age. We were there for 6pm... More

I had the opportunity to go to the 124th floor on ca 450 meters. There is also a platform on the 148th floor at ca 550 meters. Yes, it is a very tall building and it gives you a different feeling to look down on other buildings,knowing that those ones are also "sky-scrapers". The view is not really glamorous though....

Loved the experience. Speaks volumes about the culture of Dubai. Plenty to see regarding the construction of the building. Can wait to take the family.

Well organised and a nice opportunity to see Dubai from the top. Expedition regarding the building is also very interesting. I booked my ticket via Groupon (115 dirham instead of 300 dirham).

It's worth a visit if you like a view, or if you want to be able to say you've been to the top of the world's highest building. But pricey, and you have to walk for miles (it's very like Dubai airport) before you get to the lift...

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.
