Definately worth a visit if in Dubai. Booked tickets on line and avoided lines. It is also worth leaving plenty of time to shop before as access is through huge shopping mall.

Enjoyed drinks (and cigars) at The Atmosphere bar on the 123rd floor of the Burj Khalifa. Our waiter was absolutely fantastic and tended to our every need. Cocktails were some of the very best I have tasted.

The Burj Khalifa is truly awesome building which dominates the Dubai skyline. The ground floor is a mine of information on the building itself e.g. Height, time taken to construct etc. alongside pictures of the people behind the idea and concept of the Burj Khalifa itself. Escalators take you up to the floor where a row of elevators will whisk... More

One of the best experience in my life. You could see the whole city of Dubai . It's incredible how you could see a plain desert away and all the revolutionary architecture around you.

Queues were non existent, they don;t allow too many people in at a time, so straight up in the lift (60 seconds) and there's the World famous view. Breathtaking, Again, no problem getting to the windows, walk... More

A trip up here is a must when visiting Dubai. The view below you is spectacular. We visited on a hazy day, but we still fully enjoyed our experience and could just make out the other iconic sights of Dubai in the distance.
