Great view, must see. Being the tallest manmade building, you can't help but marvel at the height and the beauty of Dubai down below. Not much to do there except you are into selfies. Get your tickets in advance to avoid long queues.

well organised, interesting information enroute...whilst queuing. Well worth the views. It brings a whole new perspective to what you have experienced. Time it for the water /fountain show as it's completely different from above.

An amazing feat of architecture. A must see! Could not get access to the top, but that was okay, I'm scared of heights!

Visiting the worlds tallest building is an opportunity you shouldn't miss! We booked the trip via groupon (Dubia groupon) this made it a lot cheaper we also got the fast track tickets although on the day we visited they were not needed. The views were out of this world although views can I imagine long distance views can be hindered... More

Really enjoyed the trip up the burj kalifah but found it ridiculously overpriced! The booking said it would be aed 300 when we started to book and we ended up paying 1000 if we wanted to go to the top! Makes it impossible for families to go and enjoy the microscopic macaroon and glass of juice.

Having visited several of the worlds tallest structures, I was very excited to have the opportunity to visit this one. I was not disappointed. The views were second to none. It demands your attention as soon as its in sight. The tickets were purchased within the Mall attached. The lift takes you to the top, and also to a look... More

Everyone knows rhe building, but the question often asked is whether its worth it to spend time for a trip to the viewing deck. The answer is yes.The visitors center called "at the top" is actually a worthwhile stop unlike many other buildings of this type. The entire sequence from arrival to elevator ride and the viewing deck is filled... More

At The Top is the observation desk at level 124 of the tallest tower. It offers breathtaking 360 degree view of Dubai city from the top. We had booked the ticket at night. Probably the visiting it in the day time would be better to get clear view of the city.

A speedy journey up and amazing walk around. This thrilled us all, especially walking outside and feeling the air blowing from us high. Feels like the best time to go is night when the price sinks and all the lights go on, together with the fountain show view.

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.
