Khalifa in January

We are planning a trip to the Burj Khalifa on 4 January (Sat) and understand the sunrise/set times are around 7am and 5.45pm.

If we planned our ticket for around 5pm, would we have time to be up and see the city by day, as the sun sets and also the fountains starting?

We are planning the Bateaux cruise that evening so would have be at the departure point for around 8pm, would this be possible?

Many thanks

Bateaux cruise is nice. You should make a reservation. Boarding is at 07:45 pm.

Saturday is less traffic, still you should leave around 7pm from Dubai Mall.

Fountain show start at 6pm and then every 30 minutes. The show is nicer to see from downstairs. It is not that impressive from the platform from the Burj.

So, yes you can do this. But maybe you start a bit earlier.

4:30 - 5:30 pm Burj Khalifa

6:00 - 6:30 pm Fountains

6:45 transfer to Bateaux Dubai (opposite/near British Consulate)

7:45 Bateaux Dubai

If you go for the fountain show at 6:30 pm and start your taxi journey around 7:15 you still should be able to make it, but it could be a bit tight.
