Hi singh,

now very hot here in Dubai. please do the online booking.

visit Dubai Mall aquarium and under water zoo. Then shopping in Dubai mall.

Better to take taxi to come to Dubai mall. metro is also connected to Dubai mall from airport terminal 1 & 3.

wishing you a nice trip

Your flight gets in a 5am so you will be out of the airport by 6am and in a taxi on your way to Burj Khalifa (always providing you don't decide to visit Atlantis instead - see your other post)

Book a Burj Khalifa ticket on line for 7am or later to ensure you have enough time and take the taxi to the Fashion Avenue entrance at Dubai Mall - this is because the entrance to Burj Khalifa observation deck is actually in Dubai Mall.

You will spend around 90 minutes in total to go up to the observation deck and then when you come down you can probably fit in seeing the Mall and the aquarium.

You need to be back in a taxi by 12.30pm to reach the airport by 1pm or if you choose to use the metro you will need to leave Dubai Mall by midday as the metro takes longer than a taxi.

You do not have time to visit Atlantis as well and to be honest there is nothing to see at Atlantis except the hotel lobby

Hii Latimer

Thanks for your handy advice.

I booked the 0900h ticket of Burj Khalifa which is its first entry on sunday. I think seeing ur advice on Atlantis I am not planning now since I dont have much time since I am starting from airport at 0600h in metro/monorail & have to be back by 1300h in a taxi.

Anything else u can plz suggest me which I can utilize near Burj Khalifa

Thanks

You will have time to see the mall, grab some food and head back to the airport. If you have some extra time, you may want to get the metro and ride towards the Marina and then turn around and head back to the airport (all on the same line) as this will give you good, slightly raised views of the city.

The metro station is called Dubai Mall/Burj Khalifa.

There is a 10 minute walk from the station to the mall but it is all by air conditioned walkway. When you get to the mall follow the signs for Bur Khalifa observation, which is inside the mall next to Bloomingdales

Be aware the Dubai Mall opens for business from 10 am only. Burj Khalifa could be open as per timings indicated in their website. If you have no bags, you can travel to Dubai Mall by Metro as well. Dubai Fountains are best enjoyed after dark, if you wanted to.
