At The Top

I'm going to be at Burj Khalifa's observatory, At The Top, to get night and sunrise shots over the wee hours of Saturday morning. Clear skies, unusual light, and discounted tickets? Yes, please.

Want to join me? I'd advise you to get your tickets soon. I've booked a 5 AM ticket; sunrise that day is 6:24, and they are already sold out for 5:30 and 6 AM. You can buy tickets from the mall (AED 85) or online (AED 90) at http://www.burjkhalifa.ae/observation-deck/ticket-information.aspx

For those of you who've never been up, the entrance to At The Top is from the LG level of Dubai Mall, near the food court. Don't linger there; we can meet at the observatory. Tripods are fine, and there is no limit on how long you can stay. However, you cannot bring up food or drink.

    It was a fun experience, tohugh the conditions were hazy, and the deck was crowded. The breakfast afterwards was good fun.

    Even though it was crowded and hazy it was great to meet some of you. I had to leave early but I look forward to doing meet ups more often!

      What about the rest of us, Tami? They'll feel unloved :)

      I phrased that the wrong way, didn't I? What I meant was.... I didn't get to meet everybody but I enjoyed talking those that I did! ;0)

    Hi all! Thanks for the adventurous nature of those who got up at 4AM and joined in ;) It was good to meet some new faces and get to chat for a while. Yeah, the crowd was insane for 5am... and the haze was one of those occupational hazards. still had a great time though. Nitin, awesome meetup suggestion! Zaki, excellent idea to go to Shakespeare's for breakfast.

    Like I said previously ... the idea was great, everything seemed perfect until we found out the observation center was turned into a homeless shelter!
    Apparently, this Eid was the first time they open 'At the Top' for visitors on a 24 hours shift ... that explains the huge crowd. (people eager to experience sunrise from the top however something prevented them from doing what they originally showed up for) :D
    All that aside, we ended it with a lovely breakfast at Shakespeare ... that helped erase the bitterness of the top.

    Liked the suggestion to organize a photo shoot At The Top. Unexpected large crowd so early in the morning and a real pity that it was too hazy. it has been a pleasure to meet some of you for the 1st time.

    Let's go slightly earlier in case we have to go back to our cars to return tripods. Shouldn't be an issue though, I imagine

    I have made my ticket purchase for 5am... slots are still available. Are we allowed to bring tripods, Nitin?

    October 25, 2012

    • Nitin

      That's what they told me on the phone, and I had no trouble before. (But they gave Chetan a different answer.)

    Am i missing something? I just logged on to the web site mentioned above and all early morning slots say still available.

    October 24, 2012

    • Nitin

      You're correct that tickets seem to be available now, which is interesting because this wasn't the case earlier. Anyone who wanted to get in between 5 and 6 AM should probably sign up immediately!

    How to book now if the 5:00 am is fully booked then no point of coming

    October 24, 2012

    • Nitin

      Chetan's coming at 6:30. But you could easily book at 4:30 and get night shots before the everything gets crowded.

    Is it ok 2 purchase a 5:00AM ticket and turn up @5:30AM? Just asking..as Nitin already said - both 5:30 and 6 slots r sold out

    October 24, 2012

    • ramseed

      Just spoke with CSR, as per him - the tickets are valid for the time they have been issued to, and the security MIGHT give an exemption if you are 'late'. The geenral feel I got was to make it ther before the next slot. So in my case- book a slot for 5 and arrive before 5:30. If you are delayed even more, your ticket will stand cancelled. :)

      Thanks, Ramseed!
