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 should I visit?Hours vary from season to season, but the At The Top observation deck is usually open from 12:00 PM - 9:30 PM daily.
- Is it expensive?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 information
- 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
Get your guide helps me to ore book the ticket online.Its really fantastic and we really enjoyed the sight seeing from the at the top
U just go to the counter and collect your ticket and save time in standing in line for hours and hours only for ticket purchase. The usual line to go in the lift is normal for everybody and maybe sky lounge tickets have some exclusivity. Is it worth I don’t know.
The ticket exchange was confusing, but otherwise the Burj Khalifa and the accompanying meal was great. I asked three different staff at the Burj and got three different answers as to where the Will Call Centre was so that wasted about 40 minutes of my time. But otherwise, the whole thing was a cool experiennce as you get to see all of Dubai. Also, the lunch was great. The food and the service was good and I particularly liked the fact that they included a bottle of water which I felt was very thoughtful.
Visit to Burj Khalifa is a must do when in Dubai. Visit before 10 AM is recommended as there are hardly any queues at that time. Parking at ‚Fashion parking, Dubai Mall‘ is very covenient.
The Burj Khalifa is one architecture masterpiece. You need to see it. You need to get in line at the front desk to redeem the GYG voucher. Once you present the voucher, you get the "real" ticket -- and have to get in line once again to get to the elevators. As it was quite busy when I visited, this took a while to get at the top. But the staff is well-trained and everything moves extremely efficient.
