We were a group of four adults and one 5-years old. I suppose nobody goes for vacation in Dubai and misses this main landmark of the city. It's just something you have to check on your to-do list. Otherwise, the experience seems highly overrated, hence...More

The view is stunning from all angles as you feel like you’re with the clouds. You are able to see all of Dubai, well worth the price.

Very beautiful scenery. Couldn't get enough pictures. But a must see. We purchased the professional photos there. They were the most expensive thing we bought in dubai but very pretty.

Visited here for a Sunrise slot and was simply mesmerized by the views from the observation deck. I saw the city glowing in lights being transformed to a beautiful sunrise that woke up the city.

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

Oslo + other cities or countries in ten days (4 Replies)
I am someone who desires to do and see #allthethings. I have ten days in Oslo in May, but would love to see other places, even other countries, during my visit. Knowing that I am cool with rushing from one thing to the next in an effort to maximize what I see, I'd love suggestions! Money isn't really an object, just maximizing the time I have!

From Oslo you can go by overnight ferry to Copenhagen, a fine city. Stockholm is also a great city, one of the finest in Europe May 17th is national day, better stay in Oslo

I am going to dubai from 5th Oct to 11 Oct this year with my wife and 7yo. Few things I have already decided to do and stay. I arrive at 18.30 and by the time reach hotel would be at least 20.30. Hence I want to stay in a cheaper hotel for that night. Next morning I checkout and want to stay for 3 nights at Atlantis for my wife's 40th Birthday.

Check out Premier inn or Holiday inn express at the airport for your first night as they have good rates. For your 2 night stay then look at Towers Rotana Al Murooj Rotana Rove Downtown Park Regis Kris Kin Burj Khalifa is reached via an entrance in Dubai Mall and none of the above are far from the mall. Atlantis is expensive to eat and drink so try to get a half board package if you can as there is nothing else in the immediate vicinity. You could fit activities in that on not on...More

At.mosphere vs observation deck (7 Replies)
I am visiting Dubai for two weeks early January and have heard mixed things about visiting the Burj Khalifa. Is it worth booking an afternoon table in the bar area or just going to the observation deck as there isn't much difference in price.

Response fromhannahengland|
I personally think the observation deck is a bit of a let down so I'd go for the afternoon table at the bar

Is it possible to take good photos of Burj Khalifa and Burj al Arab? I have fear of heights so I am not sure whether I could tolerate going to the top of the two buildings.
May 22, 2016|
Response fromLatimer|
You can't go to the top of either building; Burj al arab because you can't go in without a reservation and Burj Khalifa because the observation deck is only 2/3rds up. You can take good photos of Burj al Arab from the public beach next to Jumeirah Beach hotel the entrance gates Madinat Souk You can take photos of Burj Khalifa from many places because it's so tall but the best place for a good shot of it is the lakeside promenade and surrounding area behind Dubai Mall
