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.

  • Great view from the top. Follow the signs in Dubai Mall to get to the entrance area. I was lucky on the day I went and it was very quiet - maybe being early in the morning helped, 8.30am. The lift is so fast! The view would be great when it's clear but it was very dusty the day I went. Still, it's a "must-do" when going to Dubai.
  • It was a great feeling to be there on top of the world for a while. Nothing special as such but it is worth to pay the price just to be there as a person who live in Dubai. You can see the entire city if the area is not cloudy or sandy. Amazing job by great architects and engineers. All of them deserve a massive shout out. If you live in Dubai or on visit, you better get that experience too.
  • Well worth the visit, we went to floor 148, if you’re going to visit the Burj Khalifa and your budget allows then going to the top is definitely worth the money. The experience is put together well, with a guide and brief presentation before entering the first list that takes you to floor 125, it turns out that they are also the fastest lifts in the world, and they are fast, very fast, your soon at floor 125. Then another lift to floor 148. The building is stunning, something you really have to be standing right in front of to truly appreciate the scale of, the views from the top are unrivalled, 360 degrees across Dubai, looking down from the outside viewing deck makes you appreciate it’s a very long way down. There’s also plenty to do in the same area, the Dubai fountains are amazing and the aquarium at the mall is very good.
  • Amazing views and well organised staff. Would be nice to see a presentation of some kind whilst up there. The time it takes to look around and take pics is not very long. Went in the night and the souvenir shop at the top was very dark. No translation people over here, so that people can know about the history of the structure. The best time to visit is around 30 minutes before sunset so that one can have wonderful experience.
  • The second tallest in the World, it's such an iconic place! 828m of super advanced architecture and design, very fancy and unique. Go to the top for just around 30$ (book in advance online) and enjoy one of the best rooftop views on the Planet.. 😎 but Its better to see it from ground and enjoy. Inside its so crowded and you will hardly get the place to see around. So many photographers they force you to get clicked and pay. No translation facility to let people know the history, story and other facts about the building. Only good part is you experience a fast Lift which take you to 125th floor from ground floor in a minute . Customer care is poor. They do not know crowd management. Again its better to watch it from Dubai mall ground . and enjoy musical fountains show

Where to stay in Dubai

Dubai is a city of hotels, with most of the world's leading chains represented. Rooms remain expensive and luxurious, as most establishments cater to visitors with deeper pockets. You can still save money on accommodations if you look hard enough. Move away from the coast for more affordable backpacker hostels and self-service apartments, as well as less expensive hotel rooms where a lack of luxurious amenities and less appealing views keep rates suited to budget travelers.
