Top sights in Dubai
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.
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.
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 is known as the Beverly Hills of Dubai. This public beach stretches along the south coast from the junction of the Palm Jumeirah Island.
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).
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.
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!).
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 ticket in advance in order to avoid up to 1.5-hour wait times.
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.
- When should I visit?
- Open daily, 24 hours

- The Burj Khalifa is located in the heart of Dubai. Standing high at 163 floors tall, you won't be able to miss it.

- 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
I did the 2 hour jet ski and it was amazing!! It was my first time on a jet ski and I had so much fun!! My instructor Kareem was fantastic! He took awesome pics and a video of me. Seeing the iconic sites from the water was phenomenal and I even had 15 mins of free ride at the end which was a lot of fun! I would do this again in a heartbeat!
A fantastic day out! The Burj Khalifa is an experience I will never forget and the Aquarium had so many wonderful species to see, including a huge king Croc! There is an amazing choice of restaurants to eat at in the Dubai Mall (where these attractions are based) so we were spoilt for choice.
Amazing experience! I'd recommend booking an evening time slot to see the views in the day, at sunset and dusk, booking your time slot for 45mins- 1 hour before sunset, to allow for time to get up there and to fully take in the experience.
Going to the 124th floor of the Burj Khalifa was a great experience! Loved the endless views. However I was slightly disappointed with the aquarium as the best part was the big tank in the mall that everyone can see!
I had amazing experience on the Ski Jet with Karim as a guide, the ride that he took me was amazing, very friendly, very safety and so much amazing photos. Highly recommend
