Skydiving from Burj Khalifa

Calling all the adventure lovers! There is also an option to skydive from the top most floor in Burj Khalifa; and you were thinking that this trip would be just a shopping trip.

Ever thought of being ten feet tall? Well, how about fifty feet tall with an extra touch of free fall?

The tickets for this thriller can be booked online, or also through the reception in The Mall of the Emirates. This honestly isn’t something you should be missing, you’ll regret not jumping from an incredible high and into clouds and skyscrapers when you later look back at your trip.

The fall from the top floor is beyond exhilarating, and the view is something that you can never forget. It feels like falling into a pool of skyscrapers – but don’t worry, you actually just fall onto a trampoline.

    Great guide! Wish it was published a month ago. Last month on a visit to Dubai, we went out to Babs Al Shams for cocktails, dinner and a beautiful sunset. It was a nice escape from the concrete jungle of Dubai and it was only 45 minutes away by private car. Next trip, we are staying out there for a few weeks. ?

    Love the article! I too am a solo female traveler. I have a question not necessarily about safety or harassment but about regulations. I heard that you have to be a certain age to be able to stay in Dubai if you are alone. I’m 24 years old and would like to go to Dubai but am I allowed to enter and stay in Dubai if I don’t have anyone with me the whole time?

    • Yes of course you are. There’s really no truth in that. I think Dubai is a very safe place to travel, especially solo. Tourism is one of their main sources of revenue and they take tourist safety really seriously.

    Very good read with lots of insider info someone might not be able to find in a typical guidebook. Excellent tips! I will certainly be paying attention to these on my upcoming trip to Dubai ?
