What we liked most was that this attraction, as evening falls, changes colours by going through all shades of the rainbow. Only once you pay the entrance fee you will be able to get right next to the Dubai Frame, otherwise access is forbidden.

Burj Khalifa

Burj Khalifa is one of the top attractions in Dubai and holds the record for being the tallest building in the world. A visit to Dubai and climbing the Burj Khalifa is a must do. To climb the Burj Khalifa you need to enter the Dubai Mall.

A visit to the Burj Khalif most easily scheduled is by purchasing your ticket online. This way you can choose the day and time you want to go up.

The most popular times are from morning to sunset or dusk so you can capture photos from above both day and night. During December-January sunset is approximately between 17.35-17.55.

Observation Decks in Burj Khalifa are of 2 types: At the Top access floors 124+125 or At the Top, B.K. Sky access floors 124+125 and 148. The difference between the 2 is price and service.

At The Top

At the Top single access starts at 141 aed/pers. where you stay in line and have access to the 2 floors only, enjoy the view.

The 124th floor is where the elevator drops you off and where you can get a better view through a state-of-the-art telescope and an outdoor observation deck.

On the 125th floor the observation deck is only on the inside, it is 360° and there is also a souvenir shop here. Between the 124th and 125th floors you can only climb the stairs.

The lift travels the distance to the 124th floor in only 60 seconds. And once you have reached the 124th floor, i.e. 425 m, you can stay as long as you like, time is not restricted.

At the At the Top B.K. Sky access you have a separate row, a guide, priority access, drinks and snacks as well as a view from 555 meters above sea level.

Access price

The price starts at 525 aed/pers. for access between 9.30-18 and goes up to 371 aed/pers. for the rest of the hours.

Access tickets can be purchased from the official website up to one month in advance. Access is restricted to a certain number of tickets sold/hour of access. So if you really want a certain date and time, act early.

In particular, if you go on Friday-Sunday holidays, international holidays or if you are a large group, make sure you have your tickets purchased in advance, even a month in advance.

In my experience, during the winter holidays it is quite crowded, you can wait 45 minutes in line. That’s why it’s best to arrive at least 30 minutes earlier than the time you bought access.  


Upstairs, the crowds can make it difficult to get a photo of just you. Good photo spots are hunted and there will be a queue for you.

They have luggage storage in case you arrive with too many bags. You can climb with food and water.

Atlantis AquaPark

The water park at the Atlantis Hotel is a destination that will definitely take up a day of your holiday in the Emirates. Built next to the famous Atlantis Hotel on the man-made Palm Jumeirah Island, guests staying at the hotel get free entry to the park.

This was not the case for us, so we can give you a full description of how to get there and how much it costs to get to Atlantis Parc.

How to get to Atlantis

You go by metro to DAMAC station. Then you take the tram to Palm Jumeirah station and that’s how you get close to the island. Transport on the Palm Jumerirah is done by Monorail, a single-track train.

If for the metro and tram the ticket is purchased from the electronic wallet of the transport card, for the Monorail you need an additional ticket. Cost 30 aed return/pers. As usual, the ticket is validated on entry and exit.

The Monorail runs every 15 minutes and drops you off right in front of the Atlantis entrance. One trip takes 12 minutes.

Do your math on which area of Dubai you are staying in and how far it is to Atlantis Park! During the winter, the park is open from 10am to 5pm and with all the activities you can do and new things you can try, you’d better get there within the first few minutes of opening.

We recommend you to get your ticket online. In addition, if it is your birthday during your stay in Dubai, you get free access to Atlantis Park. Just fill in a form online and they will send you a voucher valid for one week after your birthday to present at the ticket offices.

At the ticket office you will be issued a zero value ticket and that’s it! You will need the voucher with which you registered that you want a free ticket for your birthday as well as your passport.

Depending on the day you go, occupancy, etc. the price of a ticket purchased on site is higher than the price of an online ticket. Apart from access, the ticket does not give you anything else. If you want a locker to leave your stuff in, it costs extra. A small locker will be 55 aed.


If there are 2 of you, we recommend you get a large locker. It will cost extra, but you can put all your stuff in it. And anyway, you have to choose where the locker should be, in the women’s or men’s locker room.

If you want water, food, you have to pay extra. Access with water or food from outside is forbidden and there is a control of the luggage you bring into the park. In addition, once you’re in there, if you’ve had breakfast, you don’t have to eat or when to eat. They have plenty of attractions and you never get tired of all the fun!

They have plenty of attractions where the adrenaline level rises. From wave channels, toboggans for the little ones or free falls for the brave, beach access, dolphin encounters or discovering „The Lost Chamber” are all worth trying.

Currently there are 3 towers, Neptune’s Tower, Poseidon’s Tower and more recently the Trident Tower from where you can admire the view and take in attractions like Anaconda, Zoomerang, etc. It’s worth a try!
