On arrival in Dubai the temperature was 39° with a humidity of almost 90 percent!
The airport is just huge!
After a long run we could pick up our luggage.
With the Metro we went three stations to the Hotel Novotel!
After check-in we took the metro into the city to the station Burj Khalifa Metro!
On foot we walked over an air-conditioned elevated walkway to The Dubai Mall – it felt like 1000 meters!
The Dubai Fountain – simply magnificent!
Dubai – Burj Khalifa
The start took place at Deira City Center. We took a seat at the front seats in the upper deck.
Unfortunately this bus had no air-conditioned front compartment on the upper deck. So we had to endure temperatures around 43° Celsius. Worse was the humidity around 90 percent.
In the evening we visited the highest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa.
We decided to visit “At the Top, Burj Khalifa SKY L124 + L125 + L148” at 18:00. The sunset was predicted for 19:11.
We made the booking 30 days before directly at http://www.burjkhalifa.ae/. Earlier is not possible, because the booking window is 30 days. The booking is quite easy and uncomplicated.
