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.
We had the best time in the jet ski’s. My partner has done them before but it was my first time and I felt so comfortable and at ease. Our host was Hakim, he was brilliant in assisting with all our needs and made sure we were safe at all times. His super fun character made the activity soooo worth it! We had a blast and would recommend this trip again.
This combo ticket was well worth it. The views from the Burj Khalifa (even experiencing the ear popping fast elevator) was incredible! Just a short walk to the must experience Aquarium inside Dubai Mall was amazing! Highly recommend doing these two together.
After my first experience I said I would come back thanks to Kareem, the best guide out here in Dubai. So I came back with my brother’s and they enjoyed it just as much as I did so will be back again for sure.
Karim was the best tour guide on our jet ski tour!! It was an amazing time going around JBR! He even took amazing pictures and videos of us in-front of the Burj Khalifa! Book now, you won’t regret it!
I enjoyed the Dubai Aquarium, Underwater Zoo and the Burj Khalifa. It took a lot longer to go through than expected (5 hours), but it was a unique experience and definitely worth it.
