Offers spectacular view of the city. Excellent staff service. Pretty cool elevator and holograms effects. Pictures offered during the visit but you have to pay for them after. If you get bored easily , it will not be a long visit.

How amazing to be in the tallest building in the world my second experience but still amazing. Even on a hazy day you can look through the binoculars and there are stations around that show you what it looks like on a sunny day and at night and what it used to look like before all the buildings went up

When you arrive the area where this skyscraper is situated , you suddenly realise that you cannot look right to the top of the Burj Khalifa, as it is too high....you are awed by the sheer height of it, 835 meters. It's shape is beautiful, with several conical shaped towers joining together towards the top....you can reach the viewing platform... More

We went to go up the Khalifa but the tickets to the top viewing tower were 500 aed each... We didn't go up for that, but still had fun around the mall, and watching the fountain... Impressive building to look at:)

This is a great landmark, very well presented, and a must do for any visitor. It also lets you browse the mall below. The only issue was the distance to/from a taxi queue.

I can never get tired of visiting this magnificent edifice, one of the best in the world. Built to an international standard, it's a must-see for any tourist who sets foot on Dubai soil.

Amazing view of Dubai; was even able to walk outside to get the feel for the height. Good gift shop. Staff taking memento pictures (they were a bit pushy). A bit hazy due to the humidity but still a wonderful experience.

Even from far the Burj is a beauty to watch .At night with the manyfold patterns and changes of light it is a beauty to watch and photograph.Great to go on top (costs money)You can go to the very top which is very expensive or go to the 124th floor which was a great lookout.

It is a bit expensive to go up, but the views are amazing! Plus all the videos and explanations that they give. They made a good job into turning it into an attraction to be visited.

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.
