The tower is visible from anywhere in the city. It invariably occupies the first line in the list of must-see sights of Dubai. However, tourists are often disappointed by the view from the observation deck, located on the 124th floor. How to get the most out of a visit to Burj Khalifa, says www.uaeinside.com.
Choose the right time to visit
In the morning, the view from the observation deck of the Burj Khalifa will not impress the sophisticated traveler: there is a sandy haze above the city, limiting the visibility, and the colors seem dull. It is better to plan a visit to the tallest skyscraper in the late afternoon, so that from a bird’s eye view you can watch the sunset and watch the show of singing fountains. The music under which the jets of water “dance” is also broadcast on the observation deck. And after sunset, the Burj Khalifa offers a breathtaking view of the lights of the night city.
Buy tickets in advance
The daily number of visitors to the skyscraper is limited. During the season, a live queue for tickets is very long, so it’s best to buy them a few weeks before the trip on the official website www.burjkhalifa.ae and get at the entrance by presenting your booking confirmation. When you purchase, you must select a visit time. The cost of visiting the At The Top observation deck at 450 meters (124 floor) per adult is 125 dirhams from 8:00 to 15:00 and from 18:30 until closing. The cost of a ticket in “prime hours” – from 15:30 to 18:00 – will be 200 dirhams.

The time spent on viewing platforms is not limited to the purchase of any ticket. On some days, tourists have the opportunity to meet the dawn from 5:30 to 8:00 on the 124th floor of the Burj Khalifa. The price of a ticket in this case is standard – 125 dirhams. You can cancel a ticket 48 hours before the appointed time, and the funds will be refunded in full.
Put on warm clothes
The At The Top observation platform is protected by glass, but it is open-air. Between the glass panels there are gaps into which the camera lens can be inserted. It is always cold and very windy here, even if the earth has 35 degrees. In order to comfortably admire the panoramic views of Dubai, it is better to take warm, closed clothes to the observation deck.
Don’t be late
You can get to Burj Khalifa only through the “Dubai Mall” – a giant shopping center. In order to navigate and find the entrance to the tower, it is advisable to arrive at the Dubai Mall at least an hour before the time indicated in the ticket. In case of late ticket will be canceled.
