    On our second visit to Dubai we decided to visit Burj on a slightly cloudy morning, so that we could enjoy the panorama without the usual haze.
    We've got our complimentary tickets through Emirates, since we had flown with them during expo2020, so I can't judge the entry fee, but in any case I can say that it's totally worth it.
    The elevator ride a bit scary, and when at the terrace and you looked down you could see how miniscule you are. You've got a wonderful view on most of Dubai, and if you go early you will beat the crowds and enjoy your time without being pushed here and there.
    It's an impressive building and also entertaining,with a lot of boards and pairings showing how it was built, showing who built it, etc.
    Definitely a must when in Dubai!

    Well managed attraction with no troubles on entry or exit. Perfect security.
    The experience of traveling up 125 floors was thrilling and adventurous! The views extraordinary and will never get enough!
    The only negative point would be the photographers who take terrible photos.
    Otherwise all in all, awesome attraction with a lot of other attractions in close vicinity!

    A very upmarket and beautifully designed island full of exotic restaurants, leisure activities, and residences. A short walk from the Jumeriah Beach area, the Bluewaters can easily be reached on foot using the bridge that connects the island. The Ain Dubai wheel is the central attraction but there is plenty more to see and do.

    This place was the place to be! If u were lucky enough to have a flat here or rent it for a trip, on a high floor, than u had everything: Dubai Marina Walk day and night view, sea view and palm view, spotting even Atlantis at the end of it.
    Unfortunately a massive recently built hotel right few meters in front of the twisted tower has cut all view possibilities so all u can see is someone’s balcony or at max the river on the left side od the building.

    Unfortunately this attraction was closed due to maintenance during my stay on March 17. but even from the ground level it’s impressive and you can also just enjoy a nice walk around and to the beach.

    The Palladium is an office building in Dubai Media City, located near the BBC and Zee offices. It's not really much of an attraction, unless one is working here.

    We had a lovely afternoon up the view. 52 floors up and views for miles. We opted for the coffee and cake option which let's you have a coffee/tea and selected cake in the cafe on 52nd floor. For 125 dirham each i thought it was good value for money and glad we have done it.

    Lovely view of the man made island in the shape of a palm tree. Incredible views of the homes and the Sheikh's private island.
