Less wait time and they gave us some lemonade once we made it there!! We booked online from our hotel a few days before for the sunset time block. Entrance... More

Loved the building and the experience - the speedy lift, the amazing structure, the history of tall buildings - but disappointed that our view was clouded by smog. We went late afternoon and could not even see the Palm or Burj al Arab!

I went up the Burj Khalifa to see the view and get the "At the Top" experience. It's 500 Dhirams which is about $140. The experience was a glass of mint tea, and the view was nice only. I would say do not bother... save the money.

Well worth the visit! Best to order the tickets on the Internet 30 days in advance and collect about an hour before your time slot. The visit took about an hour and a half and the views were simply awesome. We had a small electric mobility scooter which we left in the storage, but we could have taken it up... More

Fast elevators, anticipation at check-in, stunning to be so high - but over quickly, pretty pricey, not much insight into anything and hey, it's just a tall building. Glad we did it, don't need to go twice.

The highest tower in the world. I visited the top "Sky" 148th floor. It is a good experience to be treated by the organisers at the ground floor level and at 148th floor, where soft drinks and some sweets are served. But when one comes down to 127th floor, it becomes very crowded and management does not care even after... More

Recently visited having cocktails experiencing a wonderful view of Dubai in the evening splendour of the tallest building in the world, a small charge of 370 dirim each which gets you 2 expertly made cocktails well worth the price. You must book! to experience the water fountains from the top floor as well as Dubai in the evening.

dont get sucked in by the hype. I was fortunate enough to get in for free as it came with my Emirates flight ticket. However I was shocked to see how much they were charging for access to the building. Yes, the building is high up so you have a nice view......of nothing. Yes you can see Dubai but it's... More

Book in advance and schedule for a clear sky morning on first timing if you can. This avoids the numbers that build up later. Lift is amazingly smooth and so fast! Views great and worth the visit.

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.
