Dubai Burj Khalifa Tickets: Level 124 & 125
- Duration: 1.5 hours
- Optional audio guide
The most breathtaking view in Dubai is from the top of the Burj Khalifa, but how do you take a photo that illustrates just how tall the world's tallest building is? Here are our top five spots in Dubai for taking amazing photos of this architectural giant.
The Palm Islands are the two artificial islands off the coast of Dubai. You'll get incredible views across the marina, looking back at the city.
From the Waterfall Entrance on the Lower Ground level of the Dubai Mall, the world's biggest mall, you get two views at once: the Burj Khalifa and the romantic Dubai Fountains water show.
Jumeirah is known as the Beverly Hills of Dubai. This public beach stretches along the south coast from the junction of the Palm Jumeirah Island.
Most lounges inside this luxury hotel offer brilliant vistas of the Burj Khalifa. We suggest afternoon tea on the Risala terrace, or drinks in the Neos sky lounge (on the 63rd floor).
Located 3 kilometers from the Burj Khalifa, this green space offers a dose of tranquility within the city - and unique photos looking back across the lake, towards Dubai's skyscrapers.
Be patient and get creative. The Burj Khalifa is so tall that it will look out of proportion compared to almost everything else in the city! This gives you a serious chance to go on a photography mission, and a really fun excuse to explore all that Dubai has to offer (perhaps with an organized tour!).
Once you've taken an incredible photo, make sure you go to the At The Top observation deck inside Burj Khalifa and celebrate. Tip: Buy a ticket in advance in order to avoid up to 1.5-hour wait times.
The summer season will be cheapest, but it will also be incredibly hot. From November to April, the temperatures will be plenty warm for the beach without being too overwhelming. One additional planning tip: the holy month of Ramadan (when many Dubai locals will be fasting from dawn until dusk) has a big impact on the city's tourist hotspots.
The Dubai city tour was great, we had the privilege of experiencing the tour without any other tourists. Our tour guide Ahmat was very knowledgeable and friendly. You can tell that he really enjoys his job. We got to see so many places that would have taken quite some time to see on our own. Definitely very beneficial to have a guide alongside with you explaining Dubai’s incredible history and traditions. Would do again!
Great day with Ahmed and Jaqoob. We never would have been able to see so much on our own. Having a driver made everything so much easier. They were both extremely friendly, courteous and professional and knew lots about the city. It was a long day, but worth it. We especially loved walking around the Dubai Marina.
Great tour. Ahmed is a very good guide, he made our day really special. Thank you Ahmed and Yaqoob for a wonderful experience.
The experience absolutely worth the try! Lobed it. Buying the ticket online make the check-in very easy and fast.
Fantastic day in the desert which was made most special through our great tour guide Nouman.
