Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world. It is the most popular tourist attraction in Dubai. We all saw it on TV, Instagram and in magazines. There are 160 floors but the public can only go up to the 148th floor, and this will cost you extra. Do you think that 148th floor so called At the Top Burj Khalifa SKY worth the extra money? Let’s first compare the “normal” to ticket to the VIP ticket.
The standard ticket will cost you around $40. Prices changed based on time. Sunset time is the most popular, and you guessed it, the most expensive. For this price, you will get access to the 124th & 125th floor. Views from both levels are amazing. There are a lot of cool places for photos. It is very crowded on both levels, so it is tough to take any good pictures or enjoy the views.
If you have extra money to spend or love peace, buy the VIP ticket for At the Top, Burj Khalifa SKY. It is around $100 and this, of course, depends on the time of the day. It is a lot more money, so I understand that most people will prefer the “normal” ticket. Once you purchase this VIP ticket, you will wait in the special waiting room for your tour guide. You will be served Arabic coffee there. The tour guide will tell you all about Burj Khalifa history and architecture. Take VIP elevator (this means no crowds) to the 148th floor. The highest level that the public is allowed to visit. At the top, you will be greeted by friendly faces with fresh juices and pastries. There is a modern lounge where you will be able to relax and enjoy the view. After you are done with your drink go to the deck outside. It has incredible views of the whole city. Take lots of photos here or ask one of the professional photographers to take some pictures of you. VIP tickets can go lower to 124th and 125th floor also.
It is pretty evident that the VIP ticket is worth the extra money. You will get a lot more opportunities to take photos and enjoy the views. However, if your budget is small go with the “normal” ticket option. Going to Burj Khalifa is a must no matter what your budget is. Check out my blog about the top recommendations for Dubai.
Try to book your tickets in advance since it is a trendy place. Burj Khalifa website will let you book one month in advance. Groupon Dubai has very often deal packages on tickets too but only to see floor 124th and 125th.
