    The Burj Khalifa is very nice. It’s the tallest building in the world, with 163 floors. Their elevators are very very fast.

    Myself and a friend visited late afternoon on a weekday in July. Located next to Zabeel Park.

    Pros:
    -Unique architecture.
    -Free water dispenser just inside entrance.
    -Toilets.
    -Prayer area.
    -Museum with videos and artefacts at ground level before lift.
    -Wheelchair accessible.
    -Quick lift direct to the top with window views at one end towards the sea. A separate lift on the opposite leg takes you back down.
    -Amazing views at the top over Dubai cityscape. Some sections of the floor are both opaque & clear glass!
    -Touchscreens showing sites visible (daytime & nighttime) and further information about each one.
    -Small cafe at top selling expensive hot drinks, pastries, cakes and boxes of chocolates. For example Americano coffee 26AED, Cookie 20AED, Almond Croissant 21AED.
    -Wraparound video after leaving lift on ground floor of Dubai in the future, followed by description of how Dubai Frame was constructed.
    -Well-stocked expensive shop.

    Cons:
    -Not the easiest place to reach as it isn’t adjacent to a Dubai Metro Station. We took a F09 public bus from the nearest Metro Station (max).
    -Expensive cafe and shop.
    -Getting hassled for paid photos by staff got a bit annoying.

    The experience is incredible! Being at the top of the largest building in the world is a unique experience. Furthermore, the attendants are super kind, Murilo greeted us very well at the entrance and was very kind to us and the other employees who accompanied us through the experience and served us were extremely attentive and diligent.

    Visited here in July 2024, I've always wanted to go up in a hot air balloon but I'm not a fan of the heights they go to and unpredictability they present, all screams risk to me, this however was a different experience, anchored / a winched helium balloon, there was a Captain and photographer onboard, no one else was daft enough mid afternoon at 45 degrees to do this but I, LOL. Wind dependant it can go up to 300m (100 storey building) but I gather we went to around 200m as we had a slight breeze, amazing views of the Palm Jumeirah and the surround skylines / hotels, whisper quiet, cooler than ground level with a nice breeze so was very relaxing, the overall trip lasted about 15 minutes or so, well worth every penny, trip cost me 175 AED as an adult, I gather children can travel for 75 AED, no fast track required as it was July and it's pretty quite that time of year. Great Experience, lovely crew and attendants, a must when visiting the Palm / Atlantis.

    Well, easy to approch to the site in downtown, free parking for ticket holders. ticket is not worth as you can only go to the height and do nothing rather than taking photos walking on the glass. I thought there will be something extra in this ticket but unfortunately its boring up there. If you want to enjoy take a slide with paying extra else it is not worth just walking on the glass. The views are mesmerizing towards Sheikh Zayed Road and Burj Khalifa View is amazing especially if you are there at night.

    Amazing views from the apartment. Apartment nicely decorated and in the heart and heart of Marina. Close to everything and that's the most important thing

    A small island, connected to the mainland by a bridge with beautiful architecture. There are many restaurants with international cuisine, some also serve alcohol. The pedestrian area is very nicely arranged. On the waterfront promenade there are many stands selling ice cream, various sweets, snacks and soft drinks.
    Also here you can find Ain Dubai, a large Ferris wheel. Unfortunately, it is currently not functional.

    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.
