Burj Khalifa Sunset Tickets
Sunset and late afternoons present the best time of day to visit the Burj Khalifa. The temperature has gone down, the sun is a little less harsh and the views are as clear as required to be thoroughly enjoyable. As the sun sets into the gulf, the amber lighting gleaming off the skyscrapers and the red sands of the desert paint a truly stunning picture.

Top Burj Khalifa Tickets Reviews
"Going as high as you can does make a difference. We timed our visit to catch the sunset at about 6:30 and see Dubai light up with its neon lights. Going outside on the upper and lower levels was great." - Oyestertravel, Tripadvisor, March 2017

"Definitely recommend!! Everything is so gorgeous especially when you go out on the balcony.. staff is very helpful and the elevator is so cool. It shows digital displays of other buildings and once you've reached their height and exceeded it. I loved it! Amazing souvenirs at the stores too" - Felicia, March 2017
