“Truly amazing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

I bought the tickets online as is it much cheaper and the tickets get sold out quickly. The entrance is on lower ground n Dubai mall - near the food court. Give yourself time to get there as we initially got lost and found our way by asking around. People are very friendly and helpful. Redeeming the tickets is very easy if u have the confirmation code. Entrance into the Burj Khalifa takes long as there is security clearance. The facts around the actual building is amazing. The lifts are really quickly and takes less than 1 minute to get up to the observation deck. Overall it was a good experience. Views from the top are amazing.

“Amazing views from a great height.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

I recently visited the Burj Khalifa while in Dubai & have to say it's a marvelous building.

From the moment you step into the lift you feel the Buzz already. Then the lift whisks you up to the 124th observation level in one minute but the ride is so smooth you hardly feel as if you're moving.

When you reach the top the views are truly amazing. You obviously get better views on a clear day but we cant help nature & i would recommend to book ahead in advance as it can sell out fast & also you pay a higher entry fee on the day.

The building also looks amazing from the outside.

Overall its a great moldern icon for an up & coming modern city

“worth the visit;book in advance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Well worth the visit; the sheer scale of the project is astounding. biggest let down was they put all the information about the build on the way out when really you want to be looking at it / reading it in the hour you're queuing to get up to the observation desk (even with a timed entry). Allow at least 2 hours for this visit. We missed the entrance to 'on the top' which is in the adjoining shopping mall and quite discrete - especially when you're walking up to the Burj Khalifa and awestruck by the scale and surrounding fountains / complex!

“Nice View of Dubai from the Top”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Burj Khalifa - At the top gives you nice view of Dubai City from the top. Its the tallest tower in the world and you can visit if you have spare time. Try and go towards evening 5:30 PM, this way you can view the city during day as well as during night. Night views from the top are awesome.
