So what’s the view like from the top of the tallest building in the world? Spectacular! When travelling to Dubai, make sure that your itinerary includes a visit to the highest observatory in the world and you find yourself standing at the Top of Burj Khalifa.
The experience of visiting the Burj Khalifa is broken down into two levels: Level 125 and Level 148. There are two different packages, you can check which one suits you best online.
First you pass through a corridor displaying all the stages of the construction of the Burj Khalifa until you reach the high-speed elevator which will take you up to the observatory deck on the 124th floor.
As the elevator doors will slide open you will find yourself standing in front of floor-to-ceiling glass walls which open up to 360-degrees view of the city, reaching far out into the desert.
There is a souvenir shop on level 125 and you can also send a postcard right from the Top of Burj Khalifa, there is a postbox available.
The At the Top of Burj Khalifa tour usually lasts 1.5 hours however you can stay as long as you like.
