Standing 2,722 feet (828m) above the glittering city of Dubai, the Burj Khalifa is an icon in the emirate. Visitors can admire the impressive tower from a distance or ride the high-speed elevator to the top and see the city from another vantage point.
Visit the tallest building in the world
Spanning more than 160 stories, there is scarcely a corner in Dubai where the Burj Khalifa is not visible. The iconic tower designed by US architect Adrian Smith is more than just a symbol of growth and development in the city; it also includes private residences, the world's highest swimming-pool, fine dining, and a breath-taking observation deck.
If you wish to dine at the world's tallest building, you can sample the finest European cuisine made by international award-winning chefs inside At.Mosphere Restaurant. From the 122nd floor, dine in style among the clouds while enjoying jaw-dropping views over the Arabian Gulf.
Reach the top
Catch second-to-none panoramic views of Dubai and beyond from the Burj Khalifa ‘At the Top' observation deck (124th floor). You can book your tickets to visit the observation deck online. The average time it takes to enjoy the observation deck is approximately 90 minutes. Please note that the average visit time may be extended during peak seasons and sunset times. Guests with At the Top, Burj Khalifa SKY tickets receive VIP treatment and access to the SKY Lounge.
Shop with a view
Burj Khalifa is also easily accessible from Dubai Mall, so you can enjoy an afternoon of shopping followed by a visit to the tallest building in the world right before sunset to take in the spectacular views.
