If you pay on the day it'll cost a good deal more. If arriving by Metro, you want to give yourself a good twenty minutes to walk to... More

Wow. Wow. Wow. Observation from the 127th floor. Be sure to purchase your tickets in advance online since they sell out days or even a week ahead. You pick your time and print a voucher to redeem at the Dubai Mall lower ground level in the food court. Queue and take the elevator up to 127th. Believe it our not,... More

The Burj Khalifa is popular, very popular. On a recent weekend all tickets were sold out for both days well in advance. Had you shown up without a ticket your only option would have been the very expensive VIP package. Booking online is easy (do it as far in advance as you can - two weeks out I could only... More

Get there early to get to the top quickly. The booking should be done online to avoid any hassles. The only trouble was the crowds.

As long as you don't have an aversion to heights you must visit as the views are fantastic ! The lift travels at such speed you feel your stomach has been left on the ground floor.

The building is absolutely amazing! The queues not so amazing - it is costly to visit but worth it if you're only there the once!

Top tip would be to book online well before you plan to visit as times lots soon sell out and ticket prices are much better when paid in advance. We chose to book at 930 on a Friday evening. For us, that meant very little queue on arrival and we were soon at the top of the amazing building where... More

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.
