Beautiful architectural achievement, it is also a well organized tourist experience. Understand you won't be going to the top--only the 124th floor, but even that offers an awesome 360 degree view of Dubai. If you have a smoggy day like we did, spend some time with the automated viewers that can give you a view on a clear day and... More

The food in Atmosphere was spectacular. Truly high end cuisine and attentive service. The food was fresh, wine pairings were spot-on, and the view was not so bad either.

We booked an evening at the Atmosphere Lounge on the 123rd floor. For a table here you must spend a minimum amount (not cheap, cannot remember exactly but I want to say at least $100 Can per person). We went in the evening and while the views are impressive, it is not at the top (floor 123). It certainly is... More

I live in manhattan ny in a skyscraper on the 42 nd floor. Living in NYC I thought I had seen it all, skyscrapers everywhere, Empire State Building observatory, Rockefeller building observatory etc but I was wrong this experience of being at the top of the burj khalifa in Dubai is entirely different and it dwarfs the empire star building...

My daughter travels to Dubai regularly as a flight attendant. We flew with her on a trip on our way to London. She booked for us to go to Atmosphere, the bar/restaurant one floor below the viewing platform as you have to pay thought we may as well sit and have a drink rather than stand looking out of windows...

The fountain show too quite impressive and a must watch on your visit to dubai. the fountains and the view from the bottom is... More

We recently had a great tour of the Burj Khalifa. Overall, the process of getting the audio tour materials and returning said materials is confusing. However, the tour was a nice experience. Make sure to book your visit online before your trip and arrive early. Same day entrance can be pricey. We had a 10:00 am tour and it was... More

We went to the "at the top" attraction. The view is spectacular and considering it was an afternoon window there wasn't an fog or smog thankfully that hampered the view. You can see so many parts of Dubai from the top. Carry a good camera preferably a long zoom to get some good stills. Definitely worth it. You can take... More
