What Visitors Say About Burj Khalifa
The tallest building in the planet! The entry to Burj is from the Dubai mall and then you will shoot up 125 stories high on to the viewing deck. The tickets can be purchased online and they will give you a timeslot for your visit. Dubai mall is so huge so lookout for the signs pointing to Burj. We had some trouble navigating. The areas near the ticket counter can be crowded with people visiting the tower, so be prepared for long ques. And also, if you have a choice, get the entry tickets for 6PM or later as the city will be lighted up and you might be able to enjoy the amazing view of the fountain show below the tower. The view is amazing from up, you can see the many other tall buildings in the area become puny all of a sudden. Vehicles passing through the large highways below will look like small matchboxes, the turquoise color of the fountain pools mesmarizing in the bottom, and I bet flat earth beleivers might have a hard time explaining the curvature of the earth that can be seen from the top. Aside from the view, there are models of the tower in its different costruction periods, videos explaining its history and stuffs like that. The ticket prices are about 140AED for visiting levels 124 and 125. There is also an option to go all the way till 148th floor. You can find more about the different ticket prices from here- https://tickets.atthetop.ae/atthetop/en-us. On a side note, there are lightshows on the tower daily from 6PM on wards along with fountain shows in the pool below. The fountain dances with different songs, and the Burj will have lightshow on it that dances with the song played. It happens in every 30 minutes and a treat to watch. Do not miss neither of them- the light show and the fountain show.
