The observation deck on the 124th floor of the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, has now become another must-do on the itineraries of most tourists visiting Dubai, and its residents. According to our poll, 31 percent of the respondents say that they are thrilled about visiting the tower’s observation deck. Another 42 percent claim that they would not attempt the experience anytime soon because of the massive crowds.
Although the Burj Khalifa opened on January 4 amidst a bright and colorful ceremony, At The Top, the observation deck, is the only part of the tower which has opened. Emaar Properties, the building’s developer, announced the initial prices as AED100 for adults and AED75 for children if booking for a later date, and AED210 for an immediate visit. However, just four days later, Emaar said that it was increasing the cost for an immediate visit to AED400, reportedly in order to reduce queues and convince visitors to pre-book.
While it is a unique experience to see Dubai from the world’s tallest tower, 22 percent of our respondents felt that the trip was not worth it, as the tickets prices were too expensive.
