The majestic fountains at the bottom of the Burj Khalifa are a sight to behold. With jets shooting 150 meters upwards, they're said to be visible from over 20 miles away, but we've picked out the best viewing points for you that are a little closer.

Get in a little retail therapy here, but also see great views of the fountain show! Have dinner at one of its restaurants facing the Burj Khalifa while admiring the view.

Are you a bookworm? If the answer is yes, browsing this Japanese bookshop (other languages also available) with the fountain show in the background may be your idea of perfection.

If you'd like to get up close on the action, this is a great spot as it's right on the Dubai Lake. Disembark from the abra here, buy your ticket, and enjoy!

Our guide was extremely accommodating to every request we had.

Our guide went out of her way to accommodate not only our difficulty walking in the extreme heat and humidity, she also listened to some special requests we had that were not on the itinerary. She was extremely informative and responded to every question we had. We were 100% satisfied! It was very worthwhile. ,

Spend the money to visit the 148th floor!

Please don’t miss the 148th floor. It was a beautiful lounge. Drinks and snacks were served. The area was peaceful and not very crowded. We took our time and walked inside and outside at our leisure. Our tour leader was wonderful. The 124th and 125th floors were crowded and touristy. Still worth seeing but much more crowded than the 148th floor! This is a VIP ticket!

Everything was organized and we had a lovely time

Maybe it was not a small group (about 30 persons ) but still was not a problem since everything was going smoothly

Burj Khalifa Tickets and Tour: Level 124, 125 and 148 Reviewed by

Wow wow and double wow.Highlight of my Dubai tour.

To collect ticket was difficult.Just say”Collect your ticket where ticket of Burj Khalifa is being sold”Everybody in the mall knows where that is.It was very memorable I went at 20:15 when it was dark and that was the best!

Nice view, you get to stay at the top till you tired and want to leave

The view is nice, a bit over crowded, even getting a spot for picture is a contest. And talking of pictures, the picture services offered are darn expensiveeee, imagine AED315 for a single shot! The electronic telescopic doesn't do much good because of the sun glare.
