Burj Khalifa, Dubai

(4.5/5 based on 48,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • At the top, should be done once. A hot view of Dubai of 555m height, plus dates and coffee

  • Maps for the 148th floor are pretty expensive but do provide a number of advantages. Namely the queues the cards booked in advance so yes can in the short row. Then you come into a spacious reception there is told how it works to and you have any lighters knives and E smoker's return after you get back. Then we go through the security further to the lifts for the 125th there moving on the elevator to 148. There you get first something to drink and eat just fine. You can a round walk and take pictures. Too bad that Vista is bad because of the weather. You can use the elevator back to 125 there you can take pictures but also made nice but terribly expensive. You can with the stairs to the 124th pictures and the fountains show filming very nice. At the end you have to go down with the elevator there are just a lot of people who want to also down there are rows on 124 and 125. But fortunately we can join the Fast lane ticket with us this saves loads of time. In short a fantastic night.

  • structurally it is mind boggling. The place is huge and you will need to walk around 15min from metro to main square. lot of shopping area and just nice to take few clicks. It will be crowded.  more »

  • Your ticket to the top doesn't actually take you to the top, for that you have to pay more to go to the Sky. Once you're up there the views are amazing. There are a number of things to look at inside the building too. You can actually go up another floor or so by using the staircase, however I'm not sure many people are aware of this as there is a reception desk before it for The sky. Tip: You can stay here as long as you like, so rather than paying the premium price, get the last cheap ticket before sunset, go upstairs and wait. You get to see Dubai in the day, the Sunset and at night.
  • What a marvelous man made masterpiece it is. The tallest building on this planet 828 meters tall. The view from the 124th floor is outstanding, you can see the sea and the desert. The lift is the fastest it takes just a minute to reach the 124th floor. Well connected by the metro.
  • WHAT A STUNNING SIGHT!! you look and read about this place, and i have to say it really does not disappoint. This building is absolutely spectacular and the views from it. its something you can only imagine in your dreams. you have to be there to believe it. be warned the tour visits to this place get booked very quickly so i strongly suggest you make a reservation before you set off to Dubai..so if you fancy going here make sure there are tickets on the days you are there, it gets very busy.
  • Having paid around £30 to visit (booked with our hotel), we arrived to be told we could not go to the top. £30 gets you to the 124th floor..... if you want to go to the top, it's a further £100. It felt like a rip off. We did not pay the extra. You are herded like sheep through the whole area and made to line up for silly tourist photo's. This was a very disappointing experience that could have been so much better. On the positive side, the views are amazing.
  • One of the best location in dubai. Main attraction in dubai. The tower is connected to dubai mall which is world largest mall. Also should not miss the musical water fountain show starting from 6.00pm daily.
