Burj Khalifa Holiday Guide

The world's tallest building is a phenomenal feat of engineering and home to luxurious apartments, offices and a top-class hotel.

The Burj Khalifa stands at a staggering height of 829.8 metres and took 6 years to complete. 22 million man-hours eventually went into the construction of the modern architectural marvel.

Located in downtown Dubai, this stunning centrepiece is a must-see landmark of Dubai's urban landscape. Begin your journey by purchasing a ticket for the At the Top Experience. The tour begins in the reception area, where a moving walkway brings you to the base of the tower. Historical and cultural information about Dubai is projected onto the walls to keep you entertained along the way.

Another engineering marvel awaits as a high-speed elevator whips you up to the observation deck on the 124th floor in less than 60 seconds, travelling at an astonishing 10 metres per second. The elevator doors open to reveal floor-to-ceiling windows providing a magnificent unobstructed view of the city, the desert and the Persian Gulf. Why not step outside onto the outdoor terrace for an even more thrilling experience? Buy tickets right here on Expedia.co.uk.

If you're feeling peckish, indulge in some fine dining with a visit to At.mosphere, the Burj Khalifa's decadent restaurant and lounge. Catering for every whim for lunch, dinner and even afternoon tea, you will definitely need to make a reservation. (Check the restaurant's website for details).

As you leave the Burj Khalifa, you can explore the 11-hectare landscaped surrounding park with its forest grove, lake-edge promenade, water features and children's play area.

The Burj Khalifa skyscraper is located in the downtown Burj area of Dubai. It is situated adjacent to Dubai Mall, which has more than 14,000 available parking spaces, however it is also accessible by metro and bus.

The At the Top Experience is open every day and tickets can be purchased at the office, accessible via the Lower Ground level of Dubai Mall. If you'd like to skip the queues, book your ticket in advance or pay extra for an Immediate Entry Admission. The observation deck is also wheelchair accessible.
