“A must do experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

This was the highlight of my trip to Dubai. We were on a cruise and I tried to book online for tickets but the days we were in Dubai they were sold out so I booked with the cruise. Make sure you book online a couple of weeks before you go. You will pay about £20. If you just turn up it will cost you about £80 although you will not have to wait in any queues if you pay that. It takes about half hour from the time you join your queue and there is information about the construction on the walls as you move along which is very interesting. The lift is the fastest in the world and gets you to the 124th floor in less than a minute. Once at the top you will not be disappointed with the view. I loved it.

“A touristy must-do”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Be sure to get your tickets online at 100AED. Over the counter would cost you 400AED which I feel is not worth paying. Being a the top (124th floor I think) gives you a great view of Dubai. It would be great if you could see Dubai sky transforms from day to night.

“Worth the high price tag”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

$100 AED if you book online to see Dubai skyline from the 124th floor sure puts a slight dent in your pocket. But then all the viewings held in 30 minute intervals are full so they sure have a good thing going. Ofcourse one you are the the Top then you really forget the price and enjoy the views. One tip book the 5:30 PM slot that way you get to see the daytime, sunset and nightime views of the city. Well worth it. Then from the north end at around 6:00 PM you can look straight down and see the Dubai Fountains which is another marvel in itself.
