My partner and I thought we would visit Burj Al Arab on our last night in Dubai. We arrived by taxi and were told at the entrance that we needed a booking to visit, but that was arranged for us and we were able to enter. The foyer is amazing as is the rest of the building. We went to... More

Great place to visit! You feel what mankind can create. We enjoyed our experience there, especially when having the international and delicious breakfast. Make sure you visit the top of burj al arab and enjoying the view.

Many amazing hotels was built since the completion of Burj Al Arab but it continues to surprise its architecture and size. Must is to visit the restaurant at the top of the hotel. It is a real attraction and an amazing view.

This is the place to go to see the sunset. To go to the 360 bar and sit out in the bay, looking over This beautiful hotel as it starts to change colours as the night comes is just so amazing. It really is very special.

As good in person as any review you have ever read. Just be prepared to spend money! Popular with tourist and lovely views of the beaches and all around a bucket list item to see or stay at.
