Towering at 828 meters (2,716.5 feet), the Burj Khalifa holds the record as tallest structure in the world. While not all of us can be like Tom Cruise and sit atop the spire or scale the building as done for the 2011 film "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol," there are several other ways to experience the majesty of the world's tallest building - from climbing to its observation decks to flying by on a plane or helicopter to taking photographs from afar (the best way to get the whole height of the building in a picture) during a city tour.
Get your At the Top, Burj Khalifa ticket and enjoy breathtaking views from the Level 124 and Level 125 observation decks. Upgrade to FAST TRACK entry to skip the main ticket line or choose special sunset time slot. You can also book a ticket with transfer taking you from your hotel to the Burj Khalifa and back.
Climb up to levels 148 and 125 for an exclusive access to the highest outdoor observatory in the world and see Dubai from a soaring 555 meter height. Book tickets for the At The Top, Burj Khalifa SKY Experience or request a ticket with transfer for convenient hotel pick-up.
Located in the heart of downtown Dubai, the Burj Khalifa is surrounded by several world-class commercial and leisure attractions. Shop at The Dubai Mall, visit the Dubai Aquarium, watch a Dubai Fountain show or dine at some of the most superb establishments around.
