Top Sights in Dubai
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 skip-the-line ticket 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.
- When to visitHours vary from season to season, but the At The Top observation deck is usually open from 12:00 PM - 9:30 PM daily.
- What is the price?The prices vary based on time of day, ticket time and additional tour options.
- Will I need a guide?If you want one, of course! Whether you want to explore the city of Dubai, or specifically learn more about the architecture from the At The Top observation deck at the Burj Khalifa, there is a helpful tour guide to suit your needs.
- How to get thereThe Burj Khalifa is located in the heart of Dubai. Standing high at 163 floors tall, you won't be able to miss it.
- Additional tips
- FYI: The average wait time is 1.5 hours for tickets purchased at the door.
- Make a note that the month of Ramadan will affect attraction opening times. Plan ahead when making travel plans to Dubai.
What People Are Saying about Burj Khalifa
This is a great trip, thoroughly enjoyed it. The Burj Khalifa is the standard tour, but when finished go back down and tell them that you have a meal included. You will then be escorted to the restaurant. The food was good, we both enjoyed it, but the location is amazing. You get a front row seat of the fountains and the laser displays.
Very pleased with this trip,, especially the quality of the meal after the visit to the tower. Minor point was it may be useful to advise guests that the meal is served outdoors so they can dress accordingly. The views from the dining area were breathtaking
Starting from the time our driver picked us up to the time he dropped us back to the hotel, we had fun! Our driver, Ash, was very knowledgeable and professional at all times, always keeping us informed and giving us snippets of additional information along the way. The desert safari was a lot of fun and Ash was such a careful driver and clearly well experienced to give us a fun, safe ride. The food and entertainment were top and me getting a henna tattoo unexpectedly was another great experience . This package is a must do so what are you waiting for?
Good value for money. Great driver / guide. We were really happy at the end of the day
Worth every penny invested. Its crowned and people seat near the windows when the suns get down. So, get your place earlier if you want to take a picture
