Is there a dress code to visit the Burj Khalifa?


No, there is no stringent dress code for visiting the Burj Khalifa's observation deck, but it is recommended that you adhere to the general Dubai norms of dressing modestly. Avoiding revealing or tight outfits that do not cover the shoulders and knees is advised. However, if you are planning to dine at At.mosphere, the building's high-end restaurant, formal attire and smart shoes are necessary. 

Can I take photographs at the Burj Khalifa?

Yes, you can take photographs at the Burj Khalifa. With its panoramic views of Dubai's skyline, it offers unparalleled photo opportunities. From the outdoor observation decks on levels 124, 125, and 148, you can capture breathtaking vistas. Professional photographers are also available on-site for personalised photoshoots. However, for commercial photography or filming, permission must be secured in advance from the management. 

Can I visit other floors of the Burj Khalifa apart from the observation decks?


Yes, you can access other areas in Burj Khalifa apart from the observation decks. However, access is limited due to the building's multi-functionality. Many of the floors are residential, hotel spaces, and offices, which are off-limits. However, you can enjoy the Burj Club for wellness, the restaurants like Armani Amal and At.mosphere, or shop at the Armani store. For these experiences, reservations or appointments are recommended. 

How much does it cost to go to Burj Khalifa in Dubai?

The cost to visit the Burj Khalifa in Dubai varies based on your chosen package. General admission to the observation decks "At the Top" on Levels 124 and 125 starts ranges between AED 119 to AED 154 per person (approximately INR 2600 to INR 3500). For a premium experience, "At the Top Sky" on Level 148 costs AED 459, or INR 10,250 (approximately). Prices can change based on the time and date of the visit. Additional experiences, like dining in onsite restaurants, will add to your overall cost. Therefore, it is advised to always check the official website for current prices and package options.

What is the best time to visit Burj Khalifa?


The best time to visit Burj Khalifa largely depends on your personal preferences. For stunning views, the sunset offers an enchanting spectacle of Dubai, however, it's also the busiest period. If tranquillity is a priority, consider early morning slots between 08:30 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. Late mornings and evenings offer flexibility for those unbothered by specific lighting conditions. The prime hours from 04:00 p.m. to 06:00 p.m. offer mesmerising views but attract larger crowds. Thus, choosing the best time depends on balancing crowd size, view quality, and personal schedule.

What should I wear for Desert Safari?

For a Desert Safari in Dubai, prioritising comfort and protection is essential. Opt for casual, lightweight clothing to keep cool during the warm daytime. Long pants or jeans can guard your legs against the sun and the abrasive desert sand. Wearing half-sleeve or long-sleeve shirts, preferably in breathable fabric, can also help fend off the sun's rays. To shield your head, face, and eyes from intense sunlight and sand, a hat or scarf, and sunglasses are recommended. Footwear like sneakers or closed-toe shoes that can handle sand and uneven terrain are suitable. Additionally, pack a jacket, sweater, or shawl, as desert temperatures can drop considerably at night.

Is it necessary to have prior experience for activities like camel riding or sandboarding?

No prior experience is needed for enjoying activities like camel riding or sandboarding in the Dubai City Tour with Burj Khalifa and Desert Safari. These experiences are designed to accommodate beginners and tourists. Safety briefings are given before each activity, providing essential instructions. Additionally, experienced guides assist you during camel rides, ensuring a smooth, enjoyable experience. For sandboarding, just a basic level of fitness and balance is enough. 

Is dune bashing safe?

Yes, dune bashing in Dubai is generally considered safe. The 4x4 vehicles used for dune bashing are specially equipped with safety features like roll cages and seat belts. Moreover, they are driven by professionally trained drivers who have extensive experience navigating the desert terrain. However, it may not be suitable for everyone, particularly those with back issues, pregnant women, or people with heart conditions due to its adventurous and bumpy nature. 

How many days are enough for a Dubai City Tour?

Dubai, the city of superlatives, has a vast array of attractions and activities. A tour duration of three to four days is ideal to explore its highlights. During this time, you can visit iconic landmarks like Burj Khalifa, Palm Jumeirah, and the Dubai Mall. You will also have time to discover the history in the Dubai Museum and Old Dubai, shop in the gold and spice souks, and experience a desert safari. 

What is the best time to visit Dubai?

The best time to visit Dubai is from November to April. These cooler months, aligning with Dubai's winter season, offer pleasant temperatures, averaging around 24°C to 28°C. This climate provides a comfortable environment to enjoy outdoor activities like beach visits, desert safaris, and sightseeing, without the intense summer heat. These months also host major events such as the Dubai Shopping Festival, Dubai Food Festival, and Dubai Jazz Festival. However, this peak tourist season also means crowded attractions and higher hotel rates, so advanced booking is advisable for a smooth experience.
