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 12:00PM - 9:30PM 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
Overall , really enjoyed the tour , good use of time to see city highlights. Although the Saga stop was educational, I would have thought the city had much better sights , maybe a traditional souk? Food was excellent at the Armani and the fountains and burn kalefa were great. The tour rep was really friendly, the only criticism was that we had booked for the English guide experience, however as she had booked a group of 10 Spanish friends on that day , the tour was done predominantly in Spanish with the occasional English translation... However overall very good trip and value for money .
I am afraid of heights and this did not bother me at all. The engineering of this building is amazing. It’s beautiful inside and out. Moving the crowds is so efficient and friendly. It is an amazing structure. So happy we did this. Even going outside on the balcony did not bother me.
I will tell my friends it was good but it is quite expensive. Let them make there own mind up.
Burj khalifa is amazing experience but I suppose to that prices for taken pictures by your employees are really ridiculous and that is really not apropriate for such a huge and proud building. In addition when the ticket is expensive enough
A must do when visiting Dubai. We took the 4:30 trip up and the highlight was watching the sun go down over the coast towards Jumerah.
