 Travex Tips
  • The Museum parking area and nearby public parking areas are available (relatively few)
  • Do not self drive to museums and heritage sites as they are located in crowded old city areas and parking is a scarcity there; you are rather advised to use public transport.
  • Wear easy to slip in and out footwear as many places would need you to remove your footwear.

There is just one place on earth which can claim these distinctions: tallest building in the world, tallest free-standing structure in the world, highest number of stories in the world, highest occupied floor in the world, highest outdoor observation deck in the world, elevator with the longest travel distance in the world. It is the Burj Khalifa in Dubai and being able to set foot on the top of it is truly once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Burj Khalifa is an unparalleled marvel of engineering that proudly stands as a 160-storeys high beacon of Middle East’s prosperity and vision. The world's tallest tower has 57 elevators and 8 escalators to move people up and down the tower. The experience at top of the iconic Burj Khalifa experience is aptly called the SKY and it is situated at a height of 555 meters. Exclusive access to the highest outdoor observatory in the world is from levels 148 and 125 of Burj Khalifa. As the ascent to Level 125 begins, the interiors of the elevator project global landmarks, which give you a birds-eye view of flying high over them. 

A special elevator takes you Level 148, the world’s highest outdoor observation deck at 555 meters above the ground. Awe-inspiring, breathtaking, spectacular, out-of-the-world could be just a few of the feelings that will rise in you as you look out into the horizon of the Emirates and beyond from the luxury lounge. A life-size screen adds an interactive experience with the different parts of the Emirates that spread out as far as your eyes can see. Level 125 is at 456 meters high, just a level above the At the Top observatory, and has a sprawling deck that offers you spectacular 360-degree views of Dubai city. It also has another great attraction called “Dubai – A Falcon’s Eye View” that gives you a totally different panorama of the city. As you move about, you will find that Guest Ambassadors are always around, sharing fun facts about Burj Khalifa.

There are two types of tickets available:  At the Top (for Level 124) and At the Top Sky (for Levels 125 and 148). The prices vary from AED 125 to 500, depending on prime hours and non-prime hours, as well as scheduled visit and immediate entry.  The non-prime hours are usually from 08:30am and 04:00pm and from 06:30pm until closing, while the prime hours are usually from 04:30 to 06:00pm but are subject to change.

As you descend from the top of Burj Khalifa, you cannot help but feel having almost reached out to the clouds and you will relive it over and over in your mind for years to come.
