    This was our first visit to Dubai and my wife wanted to visit the Burj Khalifa and also look around the Mall. We hired a guide / cab all day from 10:am through to 22:00 so it was full on and we were taken to many other places around Dubai that we would have missed if it wasn't for the guide. It's not cheap but it was worth it and the tower itself is very impressive even at floor 125, which is as high as I wanted to pay.
    The weather was perfect for our stay from late February through to early March with temperatures around 25 to 28 degrees every day. We saw some fabulous sunsets with the desert sand making things glow golden and even the moon was red when it came up one evening.

    A very relaxing trip and so nice to feel the sun on your skin after a bleak winter in the UK.

    The best hotel we have stayed in across the globe. You can instantly see why this is referred to as the most luxurious hotel in the world. We stayed for a few nights and didn’t want to leave. The pool area was amazing, service outstanding and the room was stunning. We stayed in the 2 bedroom family suite which was perfect for our family. The room was so large spread across 2 floors. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

    Bought tix online, as prefer to avoid queuing if poss. We went in the evening, so it was quieter. The frame does look stunning at night, against the night sky, glowing and otherworldly. Great views of nighttime Dubai, had we visited earlier, it would have been nice to see it during the day too - recommend a late afternoon visit, so you can see day, sunset and night!
    Good value for money, the ticket isn't costly
    No seating up on the viewing area, which would have been nice.
    Recommend as quite a unique structure and the glass floor is an experience too!

    We arrived at the Burj Khalifa and had an issue with our tickets from a third party that we had purchased online. Waleed went above and beyond to help us. Thank you so much Waleed for your excellent service!!

    I mean it is totally a classy building with very limited options but all
    Of them are high end. I wanted to go for a casual drink but I thought I would look really weird with shopping bags with me. I wish there were more options inside.

    Dubai is renowned for its architectural wonders and the Opus by Omniyat is another worthy addition to the list. Located in the heart of Business Bay, this building is eye-catching and well worth a few pics. One can see it from the Dubai Canal as well. The highlight of the building is the irregularly shaped opening in its center.

    The Palladium is an office building in Dubai Media City, located near the BBC and Zee offices. It's not really much of an attraction, unless one is working here.
