The view from the top of Burj Khalifa is really amazing. Just less than a minute you can be at the 124 floor and can enjoy the view.

My husband has wanted to go up the Khalifa since the construction finished and so we chose the VIP option which took us into a private waiting area and offered us a guided tour up to the 148th floor. Well worth the visit but it is a bit pricey.

Stunning architecture surrounds you when in Dubai but the Burj Khalifa is unique. Make sure you get to see it at night too, when it's lit up and positively sparkles.

What an experience. I went during the day to get a real clear view of Dubai and made sure it was a clear day as we had a sand storm the previous day. We only went up to 125 floors as we found the price right to the top was expensive 500AED per person. However 125th floor was high enough... More

A highlight of our trip to Dubai. Definitely worth paying the extra. You go to the higher floor where you receive some traditional treats and cool drinks and have half an hour to wander around inside and outside admiring the view. There is a lovely lounge area you can relax in and you can have a professional photo taken (though... More

The tours to the two viewing floors are worth the price and include an informative guide, the souvenirs are expensive and the photographers are good.

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.
