At The Top - Burj Khalifa
Travelling to Dubai is not complete without a visit to the observatory deck at Burj Khalifa. We bought our tickets for the sunrise timeslot at 300 AED (approx SGD$115 per pax) for a 1hr session at the observatory deck. Expensive? But the shot above just make it all worthwhile.
The Burj was built in just 5 years with its progress documented by a series of photographs as we walk towards the elevator lobby through the entrance.
It was still dark as we reached the top, the orange lights illuminate the roads as the streaks of sun ray slowly shone through the horizon
As dawn starts to break, the crowd starts to pour into the outdoor observatory decks. We could still see the moon shimmering in the not so dark skies. Erm yes, the moon is that small.
As the sun rose beyond the horizon, the city brightens up ushering the start of a new day. It was a clear and sunny morning as we could see miles beyond the existing cityscape even onto the Dubai Marina which is a 15 minutes drive away.
Before we knew it, it was time for us to depart the observatory deck and head towards Dubai Marina for our boat tour.
I clicked one last shot before leaving for the elevator.
