The world’s tallest skyscraper takes panoramic viewing to the next level. Mind-blowing elevator technology flashes you up to the 124th floor, where the extraordinary 360-degree view of downtown Dubai awaits you. Gaze at the landscape from a birds-eye point of view.

2.) Al Maha Desert Safari Experience with BBQ Dinner
Enjoy an adrenaline rush as your field guide takes you on an exhilarating 4x4 drive in the big sand dunes in a special area called 'Al Maha'.

Camel rides, dune sandboarding, traditional henna painting, and a 3-course barbecue dinner await in the desert on this evening adventure. Enjoy the golden brown color dunes beyond Dubai for an evening of food, dance, and entertainment.
After you're picked up from your hotel, leave the roads behind and cut a course through the windswept dunes of the Emirati desert. In a comfortable and luxurious 4-wheel-drive vehicle, ride through the vast wilderness of endless dunes, illuminated by the burnished glow of the setting sun.
Arrive at a traditional Bedouin campsite, where you're welcomed with a drink and a snack of sweet dates. Afterward, you can climb onto the back of a gentle camel or sit and smoke an aromatic shisha (or hookah). If you're feeling daring, try your hand at surfing down the dunes for a unique thrill, and consider adorning yourself with beautiful henna paintings.
The grand finale comes in the form of a delicious 3-course Arabian feast accompanied by a captivating performance by a belly dancer. Dine on schawarma and falafel sandwiches to start, fill your plate at the barbecue buffet, and sip on soft drinks and tea. Listen to the melodies of local folk music and watch the whirling skirts of tanoura dancers under a moonlit sky as your Arabian night winds to a close.
