Burj Khalifa 'At the Top' Entrance Ticket

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Booking worked well. We spent time in the Dubai Mall then up the tower. Views are a bit difficult with the sand in the air limiting visibility but you just have to try this one. The lifts work amazingly well - 140 floors in one minute. There is a gap in the windows on the outside viewing deck that allows you to take photos without a window distorting the picture.

Abu Dhabi Seaplane Flight from Dubai Including Ferrari World and Return Transfer

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

A beautiful fine day resulted in a smooth flight in a great little seaplane. Pilot Andy held it at between 450 and 500 feet for the best possible view. I paid the extra for the co-pilots seat. I don't know if it is worth the extra 100 as I didn't get to see the view that the rest of the passengers got from the back part of the plane but the view from up front was spectacular. It is truly amazing what they have done with that country, taming the desert and building the whole place in so little time. You just have to see it from the air.
Ferrari World is great for the young adventurers. There is a body size restriction on the roller-coasters so watch out if you are large. The offer a priority ticket upgrade for 200 and if the place is busy and you have limited time, the upgrade is worthwhile. It gets you straight to the head of the ques .that can be 20 minutes.
The drive back to Dubai was with an interesting driver and we spent the hour and a bit discussing how UAE works. It is great to drive on 4 lanes each way expanding to 6 or 7 lanes each way as you enter Dubai. There are speed cameras but I was told they only book drivers for over 140KMPH.
