We have finally reached the top of Burj Khalifa!
For months now I’ve been planning my Nanay Lynda’s visit here in Dubai. We’ve been emailing back and forth on what they want to do.
A little background Nanay Lyn is my mom’s best friend. They argue (& cry) at the same time shouting at each other and laugh like there’s no tomorrow. Nanay, her kids and husband Uncle Lee are basically family to us.
I like having family or friends visiting Dubai because it also give’s us a chance to be a tourist in a city we have learned to love and consider home.
First day highlight is to visit The Top of Burj Khalifa. I’ve purchased our ticket a week before they arrived which advisable since you get it cheaper than buying the ticket the day. Buying ticket online cost 100Dhs while the immediate entry ticket cost 400Dhs. You can view the cost and reserve tickets here.
You have an option to buy a viewing card you can use for the telescope. The telescope will show you the historic view of the place as well as the present time. V had fun changing views from present Day to Historic. It was a nice way to show visitors Dubai’s progress.
We went up the observatory deck at 7:30pm, chose to go up at night so we can have an aerial view of the Dubai Fountain.
Here’s a video inside the elevator going down. Observatory deck at 124th floor.
