Burj Khalifa, Dubai

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.

  • We visited the tower at 5:30pm (selecting the level 124/5 option - be warned the higher, Level 148 option is nearly NZ$200 per person at peak time), as we assumed this would be the best time to get a ...  more »
  • No question, the 'Tower' you seen and him have been, especially in the evening. Worth the price for the ride in the 146.Stock (admission up to over 100 euros) depending on the season held lightshows at the tower. This is unique. Must see.

  • Must visit this man made marvel straight out of a Atlas Shrugged movie. We did the prime time slot which is between 330 to 530 or so. Advantage of doing this is you get to see the landscape in both da...  more »

  • I loved the Burj. From the ticket purchase to the speedy elevator ride it felt more like a theme park ride than a landmark! The view from 'At The Top' - 452 metres above the ground - was amazing, plus you make it into the Guinness Book of records just for visiting! You have to book a viewing time so we chose 5.00pm that way we were able to see Dubai in daylight hours and you can stay to see the gorgeous sunset. There are ample viewing opportunities with some cool high tech binocular viewers available for free and it's beautifully air-conditioned! There is also an outside viewing area on this level. You can go up even higher if you want to the 'At The Top Sky' level - 555 metres high - which costs more and you only get a limited time up there as it is much smaller. You also get a fantastic view of the Dubai Fountain from the Burj.
  • Highest building in the world World record Standing tall at 828 metres in Downtown Dubai, the sky-piercing Burj Khalifa is the tallest man-made structure in the world. The glorious tower is one of the most prominent attractions in all of the Middle-East. It displays exceptional work of art and it is not without reason that it has been called the Jewel of Dubai. Climb up to the 124th floor on the observation deck, At The Top, for an uninterrupted view of the city’s skyline and beyond. This is one of the best ways to begin your sightseeing tour of Dubai. Interestingly, At The Top is the second highest outdoor observation deck in the world. The Burj experience is all about grandeur and splendour and is an absolute must for any visitor in Dubai.

  • I have been to Burj Khalifa thrice so far... It was always a splendid experience to witness this man made wonder. You will mesmerized to see the tower top from the Bottom. Evening from 6.30 you can witness Dubai fountain show for every half hour. Worth to see the waters rushing as high as high possible in syn with the music played. From Dubai metro station you can directly enter Dubai mall through the pedestrian bridge that runs about a KM from the station. Very well connected iconic place in Dubai....

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.
