An 1 hour summit tour, great view. However, in my view, admission fee to the top (level 148) was too expensive (500AED). I just did not want to miss the chance for a rare and short-time visit to Dubai. A lower rate would be more value for money and experience.

There is something to be said for being in the tallest building in the world. Incredibly fast elevators whisk you into the sky. From the observation levels, one gets a true sense of the expanse of Dubai. Crowds are limited by the staff, so once up top you have lots of room to move around and admire the views from... More

One of the must see attractions in Dubai - fabulously organised - not cheap but there is no time limit - we spent 3 hours there - there are slide shows in the lifts going up and down - the 360° views of Dubai are breath taking - winter views are great because there is less heat haze - sunset...

Thus far, this structure is the epitome of human endeavor. The overall structure keeps you wondering how has this been built with such magnitude and scale. The observation deck at the top is not something to highly boast about as the charges seem quite unreasonable. Although I think this is a deliberate attempt to restrict the heavy inflow of tourists... More

This building is an extremely overwhelming part of the Dubai skyline. There was a lot of queueing to get to the lifts that would take us to what i think was the 125 floor. About halfway! It is a must do if in Dubai, with amazing views. A gift shop and the observation platform is all you get.

Paid the extra for fast track and also exclusive access to upper floor (148). Well worth it. Beware when coming down from the 148 to 125th floor there is a photography company which funnel people to take photos then come the hard sell (6 photos for 4000Dh) eventually battered down to 220Dh

What an amazing experience in an amazing building in an amazing city! Dubai pulsates with energy. Burj Khalifa literally puts an exclamation point on this city of a thousand building cranes (well, to be truthful, I didn't count them all, but everywhere there are buildings headed skyward). To think, the world's tallest building (823 meters, over 2700 ft.) was completed... More

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.
