The Basics

Besides shelling out to stay the night at the Burj Al-Arab, visitors have plenty of other options for viewing and touring the sumptuous landmark, which can be spotted from numerous spots around Dubai. Snap a shot of the soaring Jumeirah Beach hotel jutting out to sea on a city sightseeing tour or on a boat cruise.

To get inside, choose from the hotel's many bars and restaurants available for reservation. The Sahn Eddar Lobby Lounge offers a decadent seven-course afternoon tea service, set to the sounds of live classical music with views of the hotel's amazing atrium, while the 27th-floor Skyview Bar and its floor-to-ceiling glass windows mix cocktails with stellar views over the Dubai skyline and Persian Gulf. Hungry visitors can book a traditional Arabic lunch inside the world's tallest atrium at Al Iwan, or go for a more international menu with views over the city at the 27th-floor Al Muntaha. For a romantic dining experience, book a three-course seafood dinner at Al Mahara, a restaurant with its own floor-to-ceiling aquarium. Tours of Dubai city often include a stop for photos at the Burj Al-Arab, or you can book a tour that includes afternoon tea or lunch at one of the restaurants. For a different take on the views of the UAE city, book a helicopter tour.

Jet Ski Tour of Dubai: Burj Al Arab, Dubai Marina, Atlantis, Palm & Burj Khalifa
This was so much fun. I had a great guide, John, and I am a daredevil so I didn't get on the ski to go slow. We had them full throttle the entire time. John said most one hour trips only get to see two locations because people go slow but he and I went to five and I got pictures in front of Atlantis, Burj Al Arab, Sheik Island and the Burj Khalifa.

Speedboat Tour: Marina, Atlantis, Palm & Burj Al Arab...
It was very hot going during the day. We were dropping sweat but I still enjoyed my experience. The tour guide and captain Ernest and David I believe their names are, were great! They took our pics at every stop we made. They gave us several bottles of much needed cold water lol

Great trip. Sea was a big rough but well worth it. Great views of the Palm and Dubai coastline. Perfect way to see the sights.

Dubai's Sky-High Attractions

Although the Burj Al-Arab is known for its height, it technically only has 28 inhabited stories. If it's views you're after, only a visit to the world's tallest building, the nearby Burj Khalifa, will suffice.
