The Burj Khalifa is an icon of modern-day Dubai. From observation decks on the world's tallest building, take in breathtaking sights and experience first-hand this modern architectural and engineering marvel. Afterward, enjoy a desert safari and barbecue dinner with a show. Make your own way to the Burj Khalifa before beginning your vertical ascent to the observation deck in a high-speed elevator, traveling up to 10 meters per second. As the doors open, floor-to-ceiling glass walls provide a breathtaking, unobstructed 360-degree view of the city, desert, and ocean. Special telescopes offer virtual time-travel images of the city below. You’ll see close-up, real-time views as well as images from the past and the future. After your visit to the Burj Khalifa, it's time for your safari. Get picked you up from your hotel reception and relax in an air-conditioned 4x4 as you head to the desert. The first stop is a traditional camel farm; learn about the different types of camels commonly seen in the desert around Dubai.  Continue across the desert plains to an encampment, where Arabic coffee and dates await. Get a henna tattoo on your hands or feet, watch a traditional Tanourah folk dance, and feast on a delicious barbecue dinner. After dinner, smoke a shisha (Arabic water pipe) if you wish, and watch a live belly-dance performance. Relax under a canopy of stars, before returning to the city, where you'll be dropped off at your hotel.
