How to reach

Hop onto the blue line if you are coming from Dubai Media City from Nakheel and arrive at Dubai Mall Station. The metro ride will take about 25 minutes.

2.0 km from the city center.


  • Zoom up to the 124th or 125th floor in the world's fastest elevator to enjoy 360 degrees views of the city.
  • The uppermost outdoor observatory deck is closed to the public.
  • People with acrophobia kindly refrain from the experience.
  • Tickets to the top are not cheap so decide on your budget.
  • Decide the time of day you'd like to visit. Peak times (outside of Ramadan) are late afternoon and sunset, usually 3.30 p.m to 6.30 p.m.
  • Plan the rest of your day in downtown Dubai.
  • Enjoy the views!
  • Do book in advance.
  • The best time to visit the Burj Khalifa is at sunset. Do keep in mind that reservations between 4:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.are considered ‘prime hours’ and, thus, cost more.
  • Book an entry time approximately 90 minutes earlier. This will ensure you’ve had plenty of time to arrive at the observation deck.
  • Time your visit for early morning (8:30 a.m to 10:00 a.m), early afternoon (1:30 p.m to 3:30 p.m), or after 8:30 p.m to avoid the crowds.
