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.

  • One of the great attractions of Dubai and is the tallest Tower in the world, impressive civil engineering technology. The ride is super cool, the home has a whole explanation held work step by step very interesting ... tip you have to book in advance the day and time, you have a few options that are basically the choice of 125 floor (much more cheaply and to recommend to the economic and Pocket won't leave nothing to be desired in some floors above) and the most expensive and 148 with some unique options such as coffee with sweets etc.

  • We had an awesome experience setting foot on the tallest building in the world! We had a 5:30pm reservation on Burj Khalifa's 148th floor. Prior to the lift, we were taken in a private room for some A...  read more »
  • We were looking forward to going up to the top of the tower until we found out the prices!! Tickets at sunset were selling for $170 each then dropping to around $100 after dark !! That's an incredible...  read more »
  • WOW, This Is the most amazing building I've been in! The views are great, the construction is colossal and is modern and perfect (as everything in Emirates). I really recommend to visit it while sunset and to buy the tickets for the lift on the Internet, because the line there is very long and busy. Also, go the mall with time, because the distance from the Metro station to the base of the building is VERY long!
  • This is the good place number 2 after kabah, i will come to dubai.. insya allah
  • I was seriously excited to visit this iconic landmark and engineering marvel but was seriously disappointed in the experience. It took an hour to go from the first entrance to the viewing deck; we had to wait in about four queues altogether. The view was excellent. We went up around 8pm; Dubai looks very pretty with the night lights. I did visit again a few days later during the day, and while you can see further during the day, the night view is more .. magical :) We had to queue again to go back down. For some odd reason, while two lifts were bringing people up, only one was going down. It took 45 mins of queuing to get on the lift. Such a downer on the experience, pun intended.
  • The view of course is unlike anything else on earth. The staff are efficient and friendly. I went up for sunset which was great to see the transition of the city from day to night. The interactive exhibits were also really engaging and well done. I definitely recommend booking your ticket online beforehand. You will get preferential entrance.
  • I was so excited to visit inside burj khalifa. After standing half an hour in a queue, you will be taken to the lift which is having some animated effects,that was good!!but hard to see properly,because in a lift there will be 15 people,so tightly adjusted.Lift take 1 min 10-20 sec to reach at the top.When you reach inside,there is nothing at all,A space of 360 degrees to see the City.After 10-15 you will get bored.there were photographers who were taking photos but if you want to buy those that's beyond cost 290 AED!!! There is no place to sit.After disappointment when i decided to sit on the floor.They didnt not allow. Overall experience was not as good as people expect and pay so much. Civil Engineering Lovers can go to check the history and how its built. Thanks
