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.

  • With a spectacular view, is what needs to be done by the mere fact of being in Dubai. The entrance is expensive, but I guess qlo worth being in the highest building in the world. Got particularly of night, and the twinkling lights of this incredible city make it see unlikely. See the water show dancers from the height is a plus what to take advantage. There are different prices ticket, one allows to reach the floor 148 in which also offer a reception with coffee, juice, and snacks, a preferential row to enter and a guide in English (the more expensive, something like USS 100 per person) and the cheapest entry that allows you to upload only to the floor 125. For me opinion, not worth spending so much, because both height is almost the same, basically no distinction nothing, lol! Access to the attraction is inside the Dubai Mall, which nobody tells you and you spend an hour touring the surroundings of the Tower, trying to find the entrance. I particularly found an attraction that I term does not convince.

  • This is an absolute must when visiting Dubai, so glad we did it. I was dreading the lift, but apart from the display showing the floors going up and up,and ears popping, you just didn't feel like you ...  more »
  • It is a pity that you cannot go to the top of the highest Tower and elevator goes to the middle of Shanghai nicer

  • 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
  • The most amazing city view from the Top of it. If you plan to visit Dubai must visit there and book your ticket online because the cost counter ticket is 4 time higher than the one line. Best time to visit 30 min before sunset so that you can have daylight view and night view of city!. In bottom having Dubai mall which one of the best mall in world, having superb interior view. In evening playing water fountain surrounded the tower by with music. The best outer view you can have from the top of mall parking or in surface near the water fountain.
  • Not much to say here that hasn't been said by a few thousand other people. It's simply hard to comprehend how big this thing is. At one point I counted 55 skyscrapers in the immediate vicinity. They all look tiny compared to the Burj. Until you've stood next to it you can't comprehend it's size. The word the came to both my mind and my traveling partner was "the tower of Babel." You have to stand at least a half mile away just to take a picture of it.
  • Very nice view of Dubai. Impression structure and the surrounding is also nice to look at. The Dubai Mall is literally at its feet. Strangely it does not even seem this high because there are many huge buildings in general. I had the impression that the Empire State Building was higher but that is obviously not true. The staff was friendly and the elevator up is nicely built and you can barely feel going up, in fact it took me 40 stories to realize that we are already moving. Must do when in Dubai
  • A must visit, or at least must see. We didn't go in, we just had a short and quick stop across the road to stretch our neck towards Burj Khalifa. Indeed, its the magnificent urban centerpiece of Dubai. Wish I could have seen Burj Khalifa from its closest point, but since this was just a quick city tour, that's it.

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.
