The views are amazing, but I felt sorry for the people that had to wait in line to go up and then again to go down. I had a fast pass and it was the best thing going...

The Burj Khalifa is an architectural marvel and truly magnificent to behold. Get tickets for the top and enter through the Dubai Mall. Everything is luxurious and beautiful. Amazing view from the top.

We paid more to get the immediate ticket which was great as we didn't have to queue up and wait, Once you purchase the VIP tickets you are taking to a VIP lounge, were we received coffee and dates, than its so good to have excess to a special lift that takes you to 148th floor, were we had a...

Burj Khalif is not a simple high rise building, it's an art, like poetry. That's a really beautiful creation.

We managed to book this via Groupon (only off peak) and we got to go fast track - which i would recommend as the queues can get quite long. There is so much informaiton about the building on the way up to the observation deck. We went up to the 124th and 125th floors which was prefect for what we... More

Definitely a MUST! Elevator ride was approx. 1 minute - so cool! Stunning view over Dubai. You can stay at the observation deck as long as you want therefore we went there around 6pm to see sunset and city at night. Just breathtaking... Highly recommended!

Our guide to us to a place across from the mall to get a killer view and picture. It's insane to hear about all the facts of this building. I don't think I could ever go up to the top..

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
