    You see the pictures in magazines and videos on the tv, but it is not until you visit this tower you get the perspective of just how tall it is.
    The tallest building in the world, you get half a mile up in the air in just a minute in the fastest elevator in the world !
    You need to pick a clear day for best views as sometimes dust storms will obstruct the views.
    Out of the elevator it becomes apparent how high you are because you tower over the other massive buildings below !
    Plenty of photo opportunities but the professional ones on offer I think are well over priced at 500 dirhams for 2
    I would prefer 1 photo included in the already expensive entry price.
    But all this said you are standing in a piece of history.

    by far the most superb show ...... its done every eve. the fountains the music the ambience the crowd and the whole environment around is just superb. the only regret is that is finishes very fast. one can easily see this show for more time. but every good thing comes to an end so does this show. but if you wanna have more of it , its done every hour so you can sit have a nice time around and enjoy again.

    My wedding reception was held at Bab Al Yam in Burj Al Arab. The event was organized by Shahid and his team (Swapnil and Farhan) and they truly did a splendid job of providing the best customer service possible.

    The food menu, crafted by Mr. Giovanni and his team gave our guests some mouth watering experiences.

    Our reception was dreamy, and it would have not been possible with out them!

    It's actually a great way to get to the Deira souk avoiding all the traffic by road. Also an experience which is safe and economical.

    If the weather is good; you get a fun and breezy ride.

    We surprised my baby girl on her palindrome birthday with a spectacular sight at the top of Burj Khalifa. We booked on Platinum List for the 5.30 a.m. slot (sunrise view at Floor 124 + b/f). It was an unforgettable experience..

    • Pretty cool spot in Dubai, with a different restaurant occupying every floor of Pier 7 - meaning there is something for everyone!

    • We went to the Scene for dinner/drinks one night, and then Cargo one day for drinks (decent happy hour options!)

    • Worth a visit for sure if you are in Dubai and around the marina area

    • Recommend requesting or trying to get a table outside on the balcony area, as the marina views are a dream setting

    We signed up for the tour at 10:30am. Positive experience learning from the presenter on the basics of Islam with Q&A. The mosque/site itself is not that special, not much for good photo-taking, though.

    Great for long walks/runs and bike rides. The Careem bike station is literally around every corner. We spent an evening cycling from Safa park to Meydan, great fun for a group of friends or active family and costs barely anything. One of my favorites in Dubia

    We traveled through it daily by metro and we saw it at night from the sky Observatory and by day from Burj.
    Really impressive, so many cars using it daily and apparently in a rather efficient manner. By night it's lit and really looks stunning.

    Walked along Al Musallah street and entered AL Bastakia Quarter also known as Al-Fahidi historical neighbourhood which is the ancestral home of the ruling family of Dubai now converted and preserved as a historical museum showpiece of Dubai.
    Bastakia derives its name from the South Iran town of Bastak and consists of restored mud and stone houses , squares and narrow alley's as it existed in the 1890's when Dubai was a tiny pearl diving centre of World trade.
    The "Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum centre for cultural understanding " which was the former ancestral home of the ruling Maktoum family of Dubai is now a rebuilt conserved museum that opened in 1998 and conducts local guided walking tours in Bastakia quarter educating tourists on the culture and customs of the U.A.E.Strolled along the narrow alleyway's entering a traditionally restored and historically preserved Emirati house.Visited the coin and philately museum and also sat in a traditional Emirati tent.From Bastakia Enclave walked to AL FAHIDI FORT now DUBAI MUSEUM and originally built in 1799 .This Fort situated on Al Fahidi street in the Bur Dubai locality is the oldest existing building in Dubai whose walls were made of coral and shell rubble from the sea and same cemented with lime.A visit to Bastakia enclave is mandatory to understand the historical development of Dubai.
