See the Burj Khalifa: The Best Views and Photo Spots

The most breathtaking view in Dubai is from the top of the Burj Khalifa, but how do you take a photo that illustrates just how tall the world's tallest building is? Here are our top five spots in Dubai for taking amazing photos of this architectural giant.

Palm Islands

The Palm Islands are the two artificial islands off the coast of Dubai. You'll get incredible views across the marina, looking back at the city.

The Dubai Mall (Waterfall Entrance on the Lower Ground)

From the Waterfall Entrance on the Lower Ground level of the Dubai Mall, the world's biggest mall, you get two views at once: the Burj Khalifa and the romantic Dubai Fountains water show.

Jumeirah Beach

Jumeirah is known as the Beverly Hills of Dubai. This public beach stretches along the south coast from the junction of The Palm Jumeirah Island.

The Address Downtown Dubai

Most lounges inside this luxury hotel offer brilliant vistas of the Burj Khalifa. We suggest afternoon tea on the Risala terrace, or drinks in the Neos sky lounge (on the 63rd floor).

Safa Park

Located 3 kilometers from the Burj Khalifa, this green space offers a dose of tranquility within the city -- and unique photos looking back across the lake, towards Dubai's skyscrapers.

Burj Khalifa: Our Tips

How do you get a great picture of the Burj Khalifa?

Be patient and get creative. The Burj Khalifa is so tall that it will look out of proportion compared to almost everything else in the city! This gives you a serious chance to go on a photography mission, and a really fun excuse to explore all that Dubai has to offer (perhaps with an organized tour!).

How do you buy tickets for Burj Khalifa itself?

Once you've taken an incredible photo, make sure you go to the At The Top observation deck inside Burj Khalifa and celebrate. Tip: Buy a Skip-the-Line ticket in order to avoid up to 1.5-hour wait times.

When is the best time of year to go to Dubai?

The summer season will be cheapest, but it will also be incredibly hot. From November to April, the temperatures will be plenty warm for the beach without being too overwhelming. One additional planning tip: the holy month of Ramadan (when many Dubai locals will be fasting from dawn until dusk) has a big impact on the city's tourist hotspots.

Good to Know

  • When to visit
    Hours vary from season to season, but the At The Top observation deck is usually open from 12:00PM - 9:30PM daily.
  • What is the price?
    The prices vary based on time of day, ticket time, and additional tour options.
  • Will I need a guide?
    If you want one, of course! Whether you want to explore the city of Dubai, or specifically learn more about the architecture from the At The Top observation deck at the Burj Khalifa, there is a helpful tour guide to suit your needs.
  • How to get there
    The Burj Khalifa is located in the heart of Dubai. Standing high at 163 floors tall, you won't be able to miss it.
  • Additional tips
    • FYI: The average wait time is 1.5 hours for tickets purchased at the door.
    • Make a note that the month of Ramadan will affect attraction opening times. Plan ahead when making travel plans to Dubai.

What People Are Saying About Burj Khalifa

We enjoyed our visit, but queues a problem

We had a lovely time and enjoyed our trip to the Top. However, we were disappointed to have to queue despite having bought the most expensive "no queue"tickets. It was fine on the way up, but on the way down we had to wait for nearly 40 minutes. This did not meet our expectations and did not provide what we were looking for. However, the views and organisation were otherwise very good.

Very easy way to get tickets for Burj Khalifa

I bought with Geet your guide as I have an american Express card; the Burj Khalifa site accepts only Master and Visa Card. Tickets gave access with priority to level 148, we did not wait in any que. Unfortunatellly it was a little bit dizzy outside, but this cannot be influenced...

Everything went well: pick-up, tour and the guide was efficient.

The pick-up was done on time and the tour & safari were amazing. We appreciated the belly and tanoura dance and also the buffet dinner. City tour guide did a good job and was always looking for us. Overall very good experience.

Very good combination with the best Dubai has to offer!

4 hours of nice sightseeing and then out to the sand for some dune driving. Sundet moment before a really nice buffer finner with entertainment under the stars.
