Wonderful, It's worth a visit on top of the world in the late afternoon although the ticket is a bit more expensive! But go early because there are always queues, in my opinion not worth buying souvenirs on the spot due to the price, you will find souvenirs even prettier in the souks

Fantastic visit to the Burj. We booked a timed ticket to the 'Sky' to coincide with Sunset, fantastic organisation, amazing views. Saw the 1st fountain show from floor 124 following a tip off from our guide. Highly recommended

You cannot come to Dubai and not get close enough to see this beautiful building that looks different depending on the time of day. Although I have seen it hundreds of time we recently went there at sunset and it is so beautiful as it gets lit up. Walk around the fountains, take some beautiful photographs. It you do decide...

The Burj Khalifa is an incredible building and the 'at the top' experience is a must in Dubai. the tour starts at the lower ground level of the Dubai Mall, not too far from the fountains - follow the signs. There is a great gift shop there too with surprisingly low prices on some items (worth a visit). The queues... More

If you are in Dubai, even for a short time, it’s absolute worth to visit this place. Being on the top man made highest building in the world is indescribable feeling.

No visit to Dubai is complete without a trip to the top of Bhurj Khalifa. This is a modern day architectural wonder. It cost about $40 during day/ afternoon and it's slightly more expensive during evening/sunset time. Elevator is super fast and takes you to the 126th floor in a very short time. The view from the top is amazing... 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.
