Places to visit in Downtown Dubai

Modern soaring skyscrapers, extravagant buildings, high end features, and the world's tallest building, Burj Khalifa have made Downtown Dubai famous. However, there are low rise Middle Eastern style apartment buildings in the old town which is also an area within Downtown Dubai.

On top of everyone’s list to visit is of course the iconic Burj Khalifa. Head straight for the observation deck on the 124th and 125th floor, and gaze on the city below. Get your high-street and luxury shopping done at Dubai Mall, dine at Souk al Bahar or the Time Out Market and make the most of living in this area.
