Burj Khalifa, Dubai

(4.5/5 based on 46,000+ reviews on the web)
Marvel at Burj Khalifa, the 829.8 m (2,722 ft) high futuristic centerpiece of the modern downtown area. Upon construction in 2010, the mega skyscraper ranked as the world's tallest manmade structure. Designed by architect Adrian Smith, it incorporates patterns from Islamic art and architecture, with its tapering tiers reminiscent of traditional spiral minarets. Enjoy the view from the outdoor observation deck on the 124th floor: at 452 m (1,483 ft) above the city, you'll gain a true bird's-eye perspective on the developing metropolis below. Afterwards, stroll around the palm-lined pathways of the 11 hectare (27 acre) landscaped park, featuring flowering trees, gardens, benches, and water features. Don't miss the massive fountains at entrance to the building. Using our online itinerary creator, Dubai attractions like Burj Khalifa can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • None for height rescue. We had, however, not as good a view as it was a bit cloudy, but there was enough.

  • The views from the Top were wonderful! It was great to be greeted with light refreshments were a fantastic touch! 
  • Spectacular evening outside for its lighting rate is relatively high, and must be reserved in advance on the internet. Sunrise with breakfast for 130 dirhams (33 euros) is interesting.

  • Your ticket to the top doesn't actually take you to the top, for that you have to pay more to go to the Sky. Once you're up there the views are amazing. There are a number of things to look at inside the building too. You can actually go up another floor or so by using the staircase, however I'm not sure many people are aware of this as there is a reception desk before it for The sky. Tip: You can stay here as long as you like, so rather than paying the premium price, get the last cheap ticket before sunset, go upstairs and wait. You get to see Dubai in the day, the Sunset and at night.
  • What a marvelous man made masterpiece it is. The tallest building on this planet 828 meters tall. The view from the 124th floor is outstanding, you can see the sea and the desert. The lift is the fastest it takes just a minute to reach the 124th floor. Well connected by the metro.
  • WHAT A STUNNING SIGHT!! you look and read about this place, and i have to say it really does not disappoint. This building is absolutely spectacular and the views from it. its something you can only imagine in your dreams. you have to be there to believe it. be warned the tour visits to this place get booked very quickly so i strongly suggest you make a reservation before you set off to Dubai..so if you fancy going here make sure there are tickets on the days you are there, it gets very busy.
  • Having paid around £30 to visit (booked with our hotel), we arrived to be told we could not go to the top. £30 gets you to the 124th floor..... if you want to go to the top, it's a further £100. It felt like a rip off. We did not pay the extra. You are herded like sheep through the whole area and made to line up for silly tourist photo's. This was a very disappointing experience that could have been so much better. On the positive side, the views are amazing.
  • One of the best location in dubai. Main attraction in dubai. The tower is connected to dubai mall which is world largest mall. Also should not miss the musical water fountain show starting from 6.00pm daily.
