Burj Khalifa, Dubai

(50,000+ reviews on the web)
Observation Deck
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.

  • What a massive tower if you stand at the bottom.. Amazing! But we bought a ticket for the 124th floor amazing view! Super fast lift and friendly staff! Definitely worth the visit!  more »
  • There are groupon deals that give you express access. Unfortunely, we were not aware and didn't get this deal. However, the queues weren't bad as they restricted numbers for the time slots provided. W...  more »
  • Absolutely amazing experience, everyone should do this. Book online beforehand to save a lot of money! It is really high and the lift is an experience on its own. Do the mall, fountain and Burj Khalif...  more »

  • 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 😎
  • At-The-Top is a very cool experience that you have to do at least once. It's very nice to watch the sunset from the tower. Watching the fountain show from the bottom is also a very cool experience, but make sure to get there early or be prepared to sit through two shows in order to get a better seat (which isn't necessarily a bad thing because they change the music for each show).
  • Over rated place....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.
  • You can spend a whole day enjoying what the area can offer. From good scenery for pictures to nice restaurants and cafes
  • The view from 125th floor is amazing. Best time to visit will be early morning. When you will be able to sun rise and night at same time. You can literally see the curvature of earth from the top of this building.
